So, I thought it would be cool if I could review some makeup products, and in this way help you guys when you shop! If you would like me to review any products, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll see what I can do!
The first product I would like to review is Yardley's Whipped Matte Mousse foundation. I bought mine, in the shade medium beige, at the beginning of June this year. This is how the packaging looks :
As you can see, the pot is quite empty. As I've said, I bought it at the beginning of June, and I used it every time I applied makeup since then. I don't wear makeup every day, I would say only about 4 of the 7 days in a week. So you can tell that it doesn't last that long. I also found that its staying power isn't that great, and it does rub off easily on clothes etc when hugging!! (And I'm a hugger...) Also, I found that it tends to streak during the day and is especially bad with eye shadow fall out, and regular ol' dust that gets blown onto your face during the day.
It did keep my skin matte while it lasted, which is good too, because no one wants an overly shiny face! But I have to be honest and say that compared to liquid foundation it was really lacking. My liquid foundation usually lasts me at least 5 months when applied everyday, and usually stays on my face longer too!! ^_^
I also feel that when paying R110 (I bought it at Clicks for roughly that amount), I can just as well get our R50 or so more and buy a liquid foundation that will last longer, has better staying power and comes in a greater range of colours.
Product rating : 5/10
Would I buy it again? : Probably not.
That was my 5 cents! I really hoped it helped you! Please let me know if you feel differently about this product. I would love to hear back from you!
