Best foundation ever

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!!!

I have been using it for the past 3 years, but have recently struggled to find it at the normal stockists.

I usually mix my foundation with my moisturizer so that it spreads more easily, and I've found that the Catrice Photo Finish foundation seems to set quite nicely.

I would definitely recommend this product.

A really lovely foundation

I have always been an Estee Lauder Double Wear fan. I will never not be one. However, I have been searching for a more price friendly foundation for every day wear - at over R400 for a bottle, my Double Wear just isn't going to last well if I wear it everyday, reapplying at night if I go out. I wanted a foundation I could wear every day for work, that would also have decent lasting power, so that I could save my Double Wear for special occasions or when I go out at night.

I battle to find a foundation in the right shade for my skin - I have a yellow undertone but most cheaper brands of foundation come in 3 kinds of shades - white/pink/orange - so they never look right on my skin.

Considering the limited number of shades that Catrice offers this Photo Finish foundation, I never thought I'd find one that was right. However, one did! It's the closest I've ever come to the right colour from a cheaper brand, and it feels amazing going onto my skin - my sensitive skin even accepted it!

Although it definitely wouldn't last 18 hours (I have oily skin, so what would really last the full length of time on that?), it had wonderful staying power, especially when set with a powder.

This has become my everyday foundation and I've already repurchased it twice!

Catrice Photo Finish 18h Liquid Foundation 010 Sand Beige

I love this foundation so much, it is easy to blend and creates a medium coverage(like the company says its supposed to). I have oily skin and it still lasts all day, especially if I set it with a powder. For the price, it does a fantastic job.

Catrice Photo Finish Foundation

To be honest I feel for the 18H claim that was made by these foundations..They do stay intact for around 6-8 hrs but not 18. It would be nice if they came with more shades to cater for all skin tone.

The texture is good..applies smoothly,..need to moisturize your skin properly as this foundation is a bit drying..

One important thing if your are planning to take pictures make sure that you take pictures without flash..or else you will end up with a shiny face. I suppose this is the drawback we face with most photo finish or photo ready foundations..

Catrice Photo Finish Foundation

Finally, my search for the best foundation has come to an end. I recently explored Catrice's cosmetics, put them to the test, and now can safely say i have found my cosmetic dream. This foundation is by far the best i have tried in a long time. It applies and blends like a dream, gives a matte complexion, and does not irritate the skin. I bought the bottle for about R75, and a little goes a long way.
