Hello everyone! So I wanted to post about the fairly new Dose of colors foundation. I’m sure most are familiar with this brand. They are pretty popular and I’ve been happy with everything I’ve ever ordered from them.
So when I heard they were releasing a foundation I was pretty excited. I’m not big on foundation and I’ve never had a go to. I of course watched the YouTube videos on the foundation before I purchased. I mean it’s still risky ordering a foundation online and not to mention one that just came out. I took the risk and ordered the best color I felt matched with my skin color!
I was also I little skeptical since it was said to be a matte foundation. At my age 40 sometimes matte foundations can make the wrinkles stand out more. And I’m super self-conscious about my forehead wrinkles. Which I plan on botoxing soon. I’ll write a post on that once I do.
Ok so I get my foundation in the mail and I use it for the first time just while I run errands. Ok I like it. First impression I love that you can keep it light or add on for more coverage. Like I said previously I don’t care for foundation. I like the look of my fresh skin. And the fact that I didn’t feel cakey with the foundation was great. Another thing I liked right away is that after wearing it all day when I was ready to wash off it still looked good. No shiny nose.
The real test was Vegas, can it hold up in Vegas weather and long lasting you know from morning to night! And yes I was so happy and I didn’t even have to touch up with powder even after a little sweat from the Vegas heat. I’ve been using the foundation for a month now and I really like it!
Tips with foundation is use a hydrating primer before at least, I felt like it kept it from feeling too matte. Which it honestly doesn’t even feel terribly matte. Also I normally use NARS matte concealer but since the foundation is matte I used my creamy concealer from NARS and it’s perfect. I also don’t have to set my face with powder, just under my eye area a very tiny tiny bit.
If you are looking for a new matte foundation or even something that looks like fresh flawless skin I’d say give this a try! I’m usually a Mac NC30 and I used dose of colors 117 and it’s a perfect match for my skin. Of course right now I’m a little more tanned so I just add some bronzer and it looks perfect!
Hope this was helpful! Till next post!
