Luminous Hydrating Foundation


Hey everyone,

I'm back again to share a new affordable foundation that I've come across, the Designer Brands Luminous Hydrating Foundation. I was looking for an everyday foundation with a good coverage at an affordable price and I was happy to come across this affordable option.

Usually I find a lot of full coverage foundations don't leave a dewy or luminous finish without needing the aid of other products. I wasn't sure if this one was either going to give me the coverage I wanted without a dewy finish or not giving me a full coverage with a dewy finish, I was happy to see that it did both.

When I first applied the foundation, it applied on my skin well, blended out easily without losing coverage and it can be built up without getting too heavy. I find I don't need a lot of concealer after applying this foundation and can use it for a light to full coverage.

It also has SPF 15 in it, which is important to me when buying foundation, I love having it all in one and don't need to put my sunscreen when I moisturise before applying my base. This foundation has light reflecting pigments which help to illuminate the skin and is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Green Tea and Vitamins A, C, E.

I did an all-day wear test and well, let's just say that I have been wearing it ever since and it has lasted long hours in the very hot days we have here in Sydney, especially lately!

I have attached a photo of a look I did using the foundation, that shows the luminosity and glow even when powdered. I personally prefer a matte complexion and always powder my base, because I have oily/combination skin. In saying this, I still like a natural glow to come through.

Another thing I wanted to mention before I wrap it up is that the foundation is vegan and cruelty free.

I hope you have enjoyed my little review, follow me on Instagram for full makeup details featured in the photo: @katiadmua
