I haven’t been testing out a lot of foundations lately. I’ve found a few that have become staples in my routine and haven’t wanted to stray… until recently. I saw some of my favourite YouTubers posting about Anastasia Beverly Hill’s new Luminous Foundation and I knew I just needed to add it to my collection. And I’m so happy that I did.
The foundation is exactly as described – luminous. And if you know me at all you know that is exactly what I look for in a base. The water-resistant foundation creates the most natural glowy look and lasts an incredibly long time without needing to powder or touch up. It’s a true medium coverage foundation (which is about as full-coverage as I would go), and doesn’t look cakey at all on the skin.
It’s is available in 50 shades, but I picked up 150W, which is fair with a warm beige undertone, and it’s a pretty good match for me. Of course, I like to apply it with my damp beauty blender – and I kid you not, once it’s on, it’s not budging. Even after a solid 12 hour day it looks just as good as when I first applied it.
The foundation is paraben and mineral oil free, as well as vegan, cruelty and gluten-free, and comes in a beautiful glass bottle with the word FOUNDATION written on it in huge bold letters, JUST INCASE YOU FORGET (haha).
I would 100% recommend this to anyone with normal to dry skin types, and I think it might even work for some oily skin. I can safely say that this has become a new favourite for me. A+ Anastasia! You’ve done it again!
