Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Luminous Liquid Foundation | First Impressions!
I decided to finally branch out and give a go at a first impressions review. I chose to review the Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Luminous Liquid Foundation.
Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Luminous Foundation | Bisque 01
I have to say, I really enjoyed doing my review this way because it made me look at the foundation throughout the day to see how it was doing. I also looked at it in more detail to be able to see how it was wearing. By doing this, I was able to see things I might have otherwise overlooked. Okay, now into the review...
I got the color Bisque (01) which is the lightest shade available. This shade matched my skin pretty near perfect. After adding a little bronzer, it was the perfect shade!
This foundation comes with a pump which is so useful, in my opinion (I really prefer a pump to an open top). Upon first applying this foundation, I noticed how thick the formula was. Of course, being a first impressions, I will tell you that I was a bit worried about trying this foundation because I have oily skin and luminous foundations usually do not work for me. So when I felt the thick consistency, I immediately thought "greasy and heavy". Boy was I wrong! After applying this over my entire face, I could barely feel it on my skin (which I love).
This is most definitely a light to medium coverage foundation, but also is very build-able, meaning it would be great for all different uses and seasons. I only applied one coat and I really like how it gave me enough coverage while still looking natural. While I could tell this product was a "luminous" formulation because it had a dewey effect, it did not translate as greasy or oily at all!
Throughout the day I will usually blot around two times, while wearing this foundation I did not blot even once! The wear of this stuff is incredible and seems as though it would be great for all skin types. It was not until I wore it for close to 10 hours that I finally felt like I had foundation on and felt the need to either take it off or do some major blotting. But come on, basically an entire day without any caking or blotting... that's near amazing (for me at least!).

So overall, I would have to say I was very impressed with this foundation. For $10.99, this product is such great quality! I would definitely recommend it to people with all skin types. There is a good range of shades available, and although light/medium coverage, it is totally build-able! You can pick this up at Target.
