FACEatelier Ultra Foundation

I recently received a sample of the FACE Atelier Ultra foundation in Honey and I am so impressed with it, I had to let you guys know. I had never really heard of this brand before but supposedly its a pro brand and a favourite to celebs like Lady Gaga and Fergie!First of all, the shade I recieved is awesome and matches my skintone perfectly. It's a warm beige with yellow undertones too it, just perfect. The foundation itself looks runny in the container and has a typical foundation smell which I don't like but its not offensive to be honest.

What they say?

The silicone molecule is bigger than the human pore, allowing Ultra Foundation to form a lightweight, breathable second skin that is both moisture and oil resistant. It is truly non-comedogenic and is ideal for troubled or mature skin.

Ultra Foundation's top-secret formulation creates an optical blurring effect that diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and gives the illusion of a smoother, more uniform and naturally dewy finish.

I love the coverage it provides. Its just like what my skin would look like if it would be healthier, flawless and supple. When you initially apply it, it looks dewy as seen in the picture below and a bit wet, until it dries to semi-matte finish within minutes. Also, a little goes a long way is true in this case. I applied using my fingers and it was just as easy as a moisturiser to apply - foolproof!

Below is how it looks in daylight and after drying. It needs no primer underneath yet stays on forever and no powder to set it yet keeps me matte. I like its 'skin like' finish and it reminds me of MAC Face and Body Foundation pretty much. I would say the coverage is medium to full and you can pile on loads to cover up any spots or blemishes without it appearing cakey. It's MAC Well Dressed that's giving me that subtle hint of color in case you'd want to know.

Yes I tried it recently (I'm "wheat") and it's a really impressive foundation - it instantly airbrushes the skin and is foolproof to apply. The only reason why I didn't buy the full size bottle is that I get some oil breakthrough when wearing it, making me look shiny too quickly. It's great for that dewy, real-skin look though (I prefer a more matte look). The sample pots are so generous anyway though, that I've managed to use it loads of times and still have most of the pot left!

@Beauty Scribbler - Oh really! I have combination skin too but that did not happen to me thankfully. I agree, it is very much like airbrush :)

I've tried a sample of this as well, can't remember what shade I used, might have been honey or wheat, not sure, bought about 6 different samples, haha!

I do love this foundation. Once I've applied it I dust on a bit of powder. It doesn't leave me looking matte either, and by the end of the day, it doesn't look shiny, instead it appears more dewy.

Hmm... I've still got some of my sample left, will wear it t'moro. :) xx

Hi Rakhshanda

I have a friend who bought from them and they ship all over the world at pretty cheap shipping costs I think.
