Lipglossiping's Guest Reviewing for us today!


I was sent the Make Up Store's Studio Cream Foundation for consideration but unfortunately it was not my shade. I thought it would only be fair enough if some one who actually matched the shade would review it for us, to which the lovely Charlotte at Lipglossiping agreed and here we have her reviewing it for us.

Her blog is one of my favorites by the way, so if you don't follow her already, you're missing out a lot!

On with the review.

I'm a huge fan of cream base products, I often find them more comfortable to wear on my normal/dry skin than liquid or powder variations but I sometimes find the formulas to be more hit and miss than their liquid counterparts.

...........................

Make Up Store's Studio Cream Foundation is a medium/full coverage base product with (like most creams) a dewy finish that benefits from setting with powder. Unlike most cream to powder formulas, this product has more slip which means that it's an absolute dream to blend with either fingers, brush or sponge depending on preference.

..................

It's thankfully unscented and shade 'Cream' is a great colour match for MAC NW15 ladies whilst being comparatively reasonably priced - 15g of product will set you back £21. I like the packaging, a screw top pot which allows for complete access unhindered by hinges and lids, although some may prefer the inclusion of a mirror for on-the-go touch ups.

..................

I did have an issue with this product sinking into and accentuating the pores on my cheeks after a few hours of wear despite applying ontop of primer. This discourages me from using it in warmer weather when my pores are more enlarged due to the heat. It also unfortunately highlighted areas of dryness clinging to any hint of flakiness around my eyebrows... beware and exfoliate well!

....................

It evens out my skintone well with a natural finish whilst still providing a decent amount of coverage and lasted for around 7/8 hours of wear on me before needing reapplication.

.........

Overall, it's a very comfortable product to wear and it could be a good choice for Winter providing my skin doesn't suffer from too much dryness/flakiness.

..............

Hope you guys enjoyed Charlotte's review. If you found the product of any interest, visit Make Up Store here.
