Review | Almay Truly Lasting Foundation

What would Fridays be without a #foundationfriday post and to think that this is my first foundation review for the year it is truly unfair to me and you. The weather in Johannesburg also known as Joburg is still cloudy and drizzly. How is your Friday going?
Today I bring to you a foundation review that I wanted to do for a while, but I had a love/hate relationship with the foundation because some days it will apply good and others not so well; plus I like to really test out products before reviewing them. 

Let’s get down to business.
*Almay says that skincare meets makeup, oil-free formula offers up to 16 hours of smudge-free, flawless coverage no matter what the weather plus the foundation won’t clog pores.
My experience: I must say that I love bottles that have pumps and that always play a huge role when it comes to my buying decisions*true story*.
When I apply the foundation I make sure that I use a foundation brush as it has a slight matte finish texture hence “oil-free formula” plus when you have dry skin like me make sure that you moisturise properly plus wear a primer that will not dry you out. 


The foundation applies smoothly, it is buildable you can achieve a great medium coverage and a good full coverage. I found myself reaching for it more this summer as my dry skin tends to be more forgiving during these periods, and we will need to see how well it does in Winer.
P.S. My next post will be showing you how the foundation looks like on my skin…

*The Almay foundation was kindly sent to me but the opinions are my own.
