Cream Powder Foundations

Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for Cream Powder Foundations.

Powder foundation is usually used to set the makeup or cover up spots you want to hide. But what if you could get the same coverage with a cream-powder foundation? Cream powder foundations offer the best of both worlds – the coverage of a powder and the hydration of a cream.

I chose to try this formula first because I enjoy and use other cream to powder foundation formulas; I love the look of creams but since I have an oily t zone, require that slight powder finish to keep my skin from looking too shiny. ...This is very easy to apply, especially if you have used a cream to powder foundation before.

If you are anywhere in the NC 20 to NC 30 range, with warm skin, then the shade “dune” is for you. Although no powder foundation gives full coverage, and anyone who says so is lying, it is one of the highest covering powders I’ve ever tried, and if you use it over a light foundation or BB cream, you will have legit flawless skin. ...This is an excellent powder foundation. I found using my large powder brush to sweep it over a completed makeup application, sealed my look perfectly.
