Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!
So as I've promised, I will review on to the Essence Soft Touch Mousse Foundation and I got in in 01 Matt Sand, though the color is light, I think it still suits me, though it's a shade lighter than me, but my skin can adapt to it making it almost like it's my natural skintone.
This is my first time of buying a mousse foundation. It has this bouncy and velvety texture.It has a very soft feeling when you touch the mousse, almost like a thin cream..
Somehow, I can relate this to wearing a silicone primer and since it gives a velvety feeling to your skin, it might not be suitable for oily skin. For sensitive skin, please check the tester first before you buy this. Though I can't really vouch for dry skin, but hey, try it out!
It has an artificial smell to it, I can't put down the smell, but at least it's gone once it has been applied. It blends nicely.
I actually realized, while I was actually writing up this post that there is such a thing as skin acidity, so usually what happens is, if you wear foundation, it will oxidize to 2-3 darker shade from your foundation, thus why most of my lighter-shade foundations, actually, eventually oxidizes to match my skintone.
And also, for this it actually gave you a very matte finish, for the price tag given, I was surprised that it kept my nose shine-free for more than 4 hours. Usually, it took my nose to be shiny for at least 2 hours if I use other foundations and BB creams. And I don't even have to set the foundation with powder, but if I were to set my foundation with powder the matte finish lasts even more.
Repurchase? Maybe, it will take me a while for me to finish up foundations. Hehehe.
