My Thoughts: Fashionista Luminous Foundation

Fashionista Luminous Foundation in ‘Warm Beige’

This is the first review I’ve done in ageeeeees and I’m so sorry for that but trust me, this is a review definitely worth reading. I bought this foundation a couple of months ago maybe (don’t hold me to that) for £3 in the MUA sale, down from a tenner. I thought I’d buy it just to try it out since it was originally £12 and I’m so glad I did! The packaging looks very MAC-esque and expensive, a matte glass bottle with a black pump which is very secure. I find this a medium to high coverage and you don’t need much concealer after you’ve applied it. It gives a really even coverage as well and looks very matte on the skin so you don’t need to apply much powder after otherwise it does look quite cakey. I’d say it lasts a few hours on the skin without a primer, and then after that time I’d suggest another layer. The downfall is how thick the formula is, just to put it into words, you can squeeze a pump (that’s all you need for your whole face – unless you have an extremely large face) onto your hand and hold it upside down and it won’t budge. I personally don’t like this because it feels so thick and sticky when you’re applying and it’s so hard to buff in. I feel like I could spend hours buffing this into my skin because it never seems to blend properly. So instead of using this on it’s own, I mix it with a squirt of my Simple moisturiser to create more of a tinted moisturiser which really works for me. It feels so much nicer on the skin and I’d definitely recommend doing that if you’re considering buying this foundation.

Repurchase? Yes.
