I’ve been posting a lot about this foundation on my Instagram account, and for good reason – I’ve been completely obsessed with it lately!
It’s SO good that I have to force myself to use my other foundations as well.
Here is the packaging it came in:
I love the box, it looks so luxe!!
I am slightly disappointed that the tube itself is just plain black instead of the old packaging (pink, white, more glam), but the effectiveness of the product makes up for it of course:
I’m glad it has a pump! I usually end up using 1.5 pumps for my entire face.
PrettyAndCute.com says the highlight ingredients of this product are:
Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Simmondsia Chinensis ( Jojoba ) Seed Oil, Betaine

Here is what one pump looks like:
This only comes in one shade, unfortunately. I’m currently very NC20 due to the summer sun and this fits me well, right now. To be honest, I think NC25 might even be able to pull this off too! I don’t think this would be that great for someone around NC15, it’s a tad too dark for that. I’m glad it fits me well, and that it isn’t one of those BB creams that look gray on me!
Below is a demo of the foundation on my face (I did use the usual 1.5 pumps). I’m able to double this as a concealer, too!
Top Left: Bare face
Top Right: Foundation dabbed all over
Bottom Left: Blended out (using a puff)
Bottom Right: With powder, blush/contour/highlight, eye makeup
It feels creamy and blends out very easily with fingers, a sponge/puff, or a brush. It kind of smells like that generic lotion-y scent, but it’s mild and dissipates.
It has a satin finish it seems, looking very natural with a slight glow. Since it’s summer, I set it with powder but I don’t need a setting spray – the wear time for this is pretty good, and I’ve had it look beautiful even after 7+ hours in the sun and after working (I have normal-type skin, for reference). With a powder touch-up, it could probably last a very long day and evening! Even without touching up with powder, at bedtime there’s still quite a bit of product on my face. By bedtime, it does fade a bit but it fades gracefully, and it doesn’t settle into my fine lines around my mouth and eyes, which some foundations do.
This also layers pretty well, although I wouldn’t want to try three layers; I’ve used two layers before and it blends well and doesn’t look cakey. It doesn’t catch on any dry patches and it doesn’t crease around my nose, either! I tend to stick with just the one layer because lately my skin has been doing well and one layer gives me a good medium-high coverage.
I bought this off of Jolse for $13.58, so it’s pretty affordable. One tube has the standard 50mL of product.
I’d give this a 6/6! It’s my newest HG base makeup and I’ve been reaching for this more than my other foundations over the past month, even though I really need to use up some of the others I have.
