  • I decided to give it a try since it was a foundation and powder in one
  • After I had used the foundation a couple times, I noticed that the color has yellow undertones, and sometimes it seems to turn slightly orange after it has been on my skin for a few hours
  • So, overall, I would say that this foundation is okayy and looks good when it is first applied, but I would not recommend it to anyone who is looking for a long lasting foundation

      I ordered this powder foundation with a recent Avon order. The description in the catalog said that the foundation would improve the look of my skin, and that it would lift and smooth. I decided to give it a try since it was a foundation and powder in one. It’s hard to choose the right color based on a small color swatch in a catalog, but since it was summer time and I had a bit of a tan, I chose one of the darker colors called “Beautiful Bronze”. I am in my mid thirties, and at this age I need a foundation that will smooth out imperfections, and if it helps “lift” the skin, that’s even better. I was shoping that this would

      be one of those foundations that lessens the appearance of wrinkles rather than accentuating them.

      My order arrived quickly, which is one of the things I always like about placing orders with Avon, the products always arrive very quickly, even with standard shipping. I tried the foundation the next day after I had cleansed my face. I liked how smoothly the foundation went onto my skin, and it was easy to blend with the sponge applicator that was included in the package. I liked that the foundation did not go on blotchy like many others of these types of foundations can. The color was almost a perfect match for my skin, but it was a tad dark. This foundation would be most appropriate for summer ...


      • months since it would not work for me unless I had some color already.

        After I had used the foundation a couple times, I noticed that the color has yellow undertones, and sometimes it seems to turn slightly orange after it has been on my skin for a few hours. Although this foundation looks nice right after I apply it, it doesn’t have the staying power that I was looking for. Especially on hot summer days, the make up doesn’t stay put and seems to melt off over time. I do like the ease of having a foundation and powder in one, but I find that I need to apply a separate powder on top of it anyway to make it last on hot and humid

        days.

        So, overall, I would say that this foundation is okayy and looks good when it is first applied, but I would not recommend it to anyone who is looking for a long lasting foundation. I also didn’t notice that this product did anything to visibly firm my skin. I was not expecting a miracle, but the product does claim to be “firming” so I figured I would see some difference. It did nothing to make my face look and firmer from what I could tell. It did make it appear smooth, though. I don’t plan to repurchase this, however. The price was $12, and for that price I would rather buy something that will stay on all day even through heat and humidity.
