Body shop all in one face base (base double foundation)
If you want to know how it feels when you pay good amount to a compact and it just doesn’t work on your skin then ask me 🙁 .The product claims to give you light to medium matte coverage and It is a dual acting foundation cum powder which costed me Rs 895 and has 9gm of the product.
I got 05 shade which is the second darkest shade.They have 06 as the darkest shade .S.A showed me 04 but I thought it wont go with my complexion and I choose the 05.
Ingredients of the product include Marula Oil and Vitamin E
both of are supposed to keep the skin moisturized and smooth and TBS suggest to apply it with a dry sponge to get a light matte finished.I happily came back after buying the product thinking that I am going to look like a princess 😀 .When I first used it I kinds liked it but slowly I realized that it is giving my a chalky look.
Then one day my cousin was coming for dinner after cooking I hurriedly picked this one up and applied it on my face.You know the disaster struck on me when my cousin said”Don’t you think you are trying to be too fair looking”..I was liking nooo..I am not :(..If this was the case then why will I get a second darkest shade.I know that dark in complexion and there will be girl who will be darker then me I wonder if they purchase even the darkest then also it won’t suit them.
From that day I have stopped using this product and I use it to prime my eyes and give my legs some shine when I am wearing shorts otherwise it is a No No for me.
You can see in the pics how it gives a whitish chalky color to my skin.As if I have put some talcum powder on it.
I think all those who have fair complexion can try this as almost all the compact have pinkish tone.Also product is not suitable to carry in the bag as it break but the packaging is quiet neat and clean.
Product is suitable for oily skin but not dry skin at all.It gives a light medium coverage and those who have redness on their nose can cover it provided the compact matches their skin tone.
Ofcourse the price of the product is high and I will prefer buying MAC by investing little more but if you have fair complexion then go ahead with this one.It might work for you.
It never broke me out so that was the best part for me.It has a seperate compartment for a sponge which is nice as it keeps the sponge safe also as per the sire it has a detachable mirror but after 6-7 months also I have not been able to figured it out.If you do then do let me know.:)
I won’t rate it as it might become your holy grail product if you have a fair complexion but please choose carefully while investing on this product.:)
