      I haven’t had much luck with mousse foundations in the past, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying to find one! I need a foundation that does a variety of things. First off, I have issues with blemishes which have plagued me with since my youth. Thankfully, they aren’t nearly as bad now, these problems, as they used to be when I was a teen. Now, instead of full out acne, I just have the occassional blemish problem usually brought on by the hormonal changes during menstruation, and they usually only last about a week. But, I still need a foundation that provides sufficient covered during that time. Secondly, I need a foundation that will help even out my skin tone, which has been red and blotchy looking for as long as I can remember. The most important factor that I look for in a foundation, however, is that I need something that will prevent shine and treat the oily conditions of my skin. I’ve always had oily skin which prompted the breakouts in my youth and

      /> continues to prompt them now that I’m older, and I’m always battling the oil and shine throughout the day. Though I use a liquid foundation now that works fairly well and is a good color and doesn’t go on thick and cake up, it also doesn’t control the shine. Sure, two out of three isn’t bad, but it’s not perfect, and that’s what I’m looking for.

      I’ve ordered from avon regularly for the past twenty years, and decided I should finally delve into the realm of avon foundations. On a recent order, I ordered a dozen different foundations hoping that one of them would work for me. Since I’m fair skinned, and a lot of my friends are fair skinned as well, I figured the ones that didn’t work wouldn’t go to waste because it might work for one of my friends or go workers. The IDEAL SHADE Mousse Foundation Stick with spf 10 seemed like a good alternative. I had also ordered the ideal shade mousse foundation in a jar, and hadn’t tried either of them before, so was ...


      • anxious to see which one (if any) would work for me. Unfortunately, I tried the one in the jar first and it didn’t work very well at all and didn’t provide any coverage that I needed, so I didn’t exactly start out having high hopes for the stick foundation version of it. It was $10 and the stick wasn’t very large (maybe twice the size of a typical lipstick), so I was immediately disappointed that I wasn’t getting very much for my money. Stick foundations typically don’t last very long anyway because they are thicker and you use more, if even by accident. And it doesn’t come in very many color choices, so my only obvious choice was “light” which, as it turns out, wasn’t light enough. It was still a little too pink agains my fair complexion to blend in well enough for my liking.

        Aside from the lack of color options (and I find it funny that you have more options in the jar variety than in the stick), it actually went on nicely. I applied it

        to a sponge and then to my face, because I don’t like the idea of contaminating the rest of the product with my natural bacterias in the skin. The coverage was pretty good, better at least than the jar version of the mousse foundation, and it was a nice matte finish… for about an hour. It didn’t take very long at all for my oil and shine to start peeking through. It was promising enough until then, even if the color wasn’t quite light enough for me. So, needless to say, I wont be trying the mousse products again, as they just never seem to work, and not just from this line either, but just generally speaking. I would have preferred it if it was larger for the money and was longer lasting in the way of shine control, and if there were the same shade options as with the jar version. They still have a way to go and improvements they can make with this product. Combine the stick with the jar version and you might have a better product than they are individually.
