Hi all! I’m here today with a foundation review! I’ve realized that I don’t review a lot of foundations. I usually only have a couple open at a time, since I just have one face. LOL!
But I do feel like I’m in sort of a foundation/concealer rut and want to try some new ones this year.
I was recently sent the beautyblender Bounce foundation for my honest review. I was excited because I have been wanting to try this foundation for a while.
Beautyblender Bounce Liquid Foundation ($40 USD) — The beautyblender website claims:
A weightless, full-coverage foundation in 40 shades that easily blends for a flawless finish and a revolutionary bare-skin feel. The whipped liquid glides and bounces easily so it never looks cakey or fake- no matter how little or how much you layer on. Never chalky or lifeless, the velveteen matte finish has a multidimensional effect, like naturally gorgeous, healthy skin. The lightweight, buildable formula addresses not just tone but also skin texture so your complexion looks smooth and even. Skin looks picture perfect- IRL and on-screen for up to 24 hours.
Here’s a closeup of the product:
To use this foundation, you slide the button (photo left) over to the left, then squeeze the top and the foundation comes out of the spout (photo right). Then you take a beautyblender (or other sponge or brush) and take the foundation that’s come out with the tool and apply it. It’s very easy to use. The only downfall is that the spout on the pump gets a bit messy.
I have tried the foundation with both a beautyblender and a flat top foundation brush. It works well with both, but even if I use a brush, I finish the application by bouncing the beautyblender over my skin to blend it out. My shade is 1.50, which is a fair/light with cool undertones.
The texture of the foundation is very silky and mousse-like. The claim on this is that it’s full coverage. I’d say it’s more medium, but can be built up to full. It melts into my skin and doesn’t even look like I’m wearing foundation — the coverage and finish is so natural! And my skin looks very flawless. It does give a soft matte finish, but it doesn’t dry down, so I do need to powder my skin. That’s fine with me.
The biggest pro with this foundation is that it doesn’t show texture and it looks like I’m not really wearing makeup. My skin is aging and combination. It’s also sensitive. This foundation covers my redness and uneven texture.
I’d say the only con for me is the packaging. The spout gets really dirty and it’s tough to clean.
I definitely recommend this foundation! I’ve been wearing it everyday since I received it. It just makes my skin look so nice.
