Sorry guys this post was meant to be up yesterday but I was too busy playing Sims 4, they finally added toddlers in a free update on Thursday. As a long term Sims lover this was amazing and I did nothing but Sims, so naughty me ended up finalising the post yesterday night when the post was already meant to be live. But hey grab your coffee and start off your Monday morning right as you add things mentally to your shopping list.
If you’ve followed my blog for a while you know that my all-time favourite foundation is the L’Oreal True Match Foundation but recently I have want to try something new and while perusing Primark I stumbled upon the PS Pro range and seeing how pale the foundations got I just couldn’t resist.
According to the packaging the PS Pro Longwear Mineralised Foundation:
“Advanced formula provides all the benefits of mineral powders;
Contains silica, mica, magnesium, copper, zinc, kaolin, manganese and vitamins;
Smooths the appearance of skin imperfections and moisturises;
Provides excellent coverage with a natural finish and weightless feel;
With SPF 15 to protect the skin from the sun”
One of the things that surprised me was how pigmented and thick the foundation is, it’s definitely a full coverage foundation you cannot even slightly question it but this is definitely a longwearing foundation. At this point I slightly disagree with the weightless feel claim, it’s not weighty but it’s not heavy and cakey on the skin it just gives you that completely airbrush skin where you can hide all of your imperfections.
I’ve found the best way to apply this is with a flat bottomed brush, you need less product and it leave a nice natural and full coverage look. I found with a sponge part way through the morning the foundation would break up or it would apply funny. In fact I apply this foundation with the Kiko Milano Skin Tone Foundation Brush which I reviewed earlier this week if you wish to check out the full post here.
The one downside is that I found that although the makeup itself is not drying when my skin seriously dried out about a week ago it was slightly patchy but after a few face mask, and some tlc it is now applying perfectly again. This is definitely more of a foundation for normal/combination skin. Still I recommend checking it out wether you want a good budget option, want a nice pale option or just like trying out new foundation, I generally like the stuff I’ve found in the PS beauty range and cannot wait to try out some more in future.
The PS Pro Longwear Mineralised Foundation is available for £4.00 from Primark, this range seems to have loads of colours as well as testers in store if you are curious to try.
