1N2 Ecru - Neutral Undertone more...
With oily, acne prone/scarred skin, I need a foundation that will
provide medium to full coverage, not look too overdone (if you're having
the notorious cakey problem that can come with this product try a damp
brush), blendable application, control my oil, will not oxidize, resist
transferring, and match my gold undertone (4W1 is lovely). After many
months of trying to tick all my foundation requirement boxes, I thought
the search was over when I stumbled upon this gem. Allow me to take a
moment to say how GORGEOUS this foundation wears throughout my 10+ hour
days while only needing to blot once. Never have I ever been so excited
to pass a reflective surface and give a content sigh thinking, 'Ah, just
as I applied you..'
So why 4 stars and not 5?
While I adore this foundation, I cannot wear it.
break out once a month and once a month only, in small unimpressive
blemishes. But when I was hit with a barrage of cystic acne after a week
of using DW, on my off cycle, and with no changes in my stress levels,
diet, or skincare, I couldn't continue.
Missing all the wonderful
things the foundation provided a month or so later I tried again, only
to have more cystic acne, but this time in only 3 days of wear, again
off cycle and no lifestyle changes.
I believe that the foundation
itself is just too heavy for my skin to manage. The beauty blender, a
flat top brush, a round buffing brush, and my fingers didn't change the
fact that the product had weight to it, I just didn't think it would
pose an issue.
It's disappointing that I not only had to return
my DW, but I'm still on the hunt for that perfect base. I'm excited to
see what Double Wear Light has to offer, as I'll be testing it this week
in shade Intensity 3.5.
I encourage everyone to give the mother
of all foundations a try at least once. The coverage, shade range and
hours and hours of wear time can't be beat. It works for a lot of people
with different skin types, tones, moisture levels and sensitivities.
Unfortunately, I just wasn't one of them.
