Everytime I hop on Ry Cosmetics, I stumble across more products that I really want to try. Today, I’ll be testing out the Gorgeous Cosmetics Base Perfect Liquid Foundation & Gorgeous Cosmetics #037 Foundation Buff Brush.
- I haven’t used anything from Gorgeous Cosmetics before
- I am actually going to be using a brush to apply my foundation today, instead of a beauty blender – I’ve used a beauty blender religiously since having my first one back in 2013
Now for the Gorgeous Cosmetics Base Perfect Liquid Foundation in 3N-BP*. One thing that I must mention straight away is that there is an abundance of shades in this range. I really was tossing up between 3 of them and luckily picked my perfect one!
Another thing that I really appreciate about this foundation is the packaging. The lid is really sturdy and it definitely doesn’t seem like the kind of foundation lid to pop off and make a mess. Also, this foundation has a foundation pump. Honestly had to underline and bold it because that just makes me really happy.
The foundation itself smells a little bit like a floral moisturiser. The texture first appears to be in between a mousse and cream, but once you apply the foundation to the face it is more towards a cream texture. To cover my face, I used one and a half pumps to achieve a medium coverage, but you can definitely build it up to full.
The foundation feels like a moisturiser when first applied but dries to the touch quite quickly. You do have a bit of time to play around with this foundation and I found that the #037 brush applied it quite flawlessly. Because I’m oily, longevity of this foundation was probably around 6 hours (at pristine condition). After the 6 hour mark I just needed to touch up with some powder to remove my oiliness. The coverage however did last very, very nicely.
Overall, I’m really impressed by both the brush and the foundation. I’m curious now to use the brush with my other foundations and see whether it’ll be reached for a long side my beauty blender, or even replace it!
