new favorite beauty trend i haven’t gotten over? skincare infused base products. i tried this foundation, and the formula gives me medium coverage with a natural, luminous glow. it is buildable however, lately i’ve been using only a small amount and mixing with a moisturizer to create a skin tint effect and it’s beautiful for my no makeup makeup days. feels like a burst of hydration on my skin, and the smoothing effect is REAL YALL. i think it’s so cool that this product was inspired by sheet masks, and i'm here for it and the luminous finish it gives me. 10/10 in my book!...Liquid foundations aren't my normal go-to (I usually use powder) because lots of foundations feel too heavy and thick for my liking.
