Body Shop Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation

Thursday, 1 February 2018

There's nothing I love more than finding new makeup products that work wonders for me and actually do what they claim to do. I picked up this body shop foundation as well as one of their beautiful liquid lipsticks and setting spray before Christmas. I was so intrigued to try it after seeing an instagram advert that showed one half of people's face with the foundation and the other half without. It was mad how good the coverage was and how healthy and glowy the foundation made the skin look. I'm so chuffed I've discovered an absolute gem and it's become a ride or die foundation for sure. I had to share it with you:

Absolutely insane. I'm a full coverage girl for sure so finding foundations that mean I don't even have to use concealer is rare but bloody amazing. I have quite purple marks from past acne and I've been blessed with lovely dark circles under my eyes so the fact this foundation fully covers them means it's a good one.

It's a complete matte finish once dried but doesn't cling to dry patches or exaggerate them. It's such a blendable foundation even though it's quite a thick and creamy consistency and the colour distributes evenly. 

I'm amazed how long it lasts throughout the day to be honest. Even if I don't use any primer (just moisturiser beforehand) it stays on all day. It doesn't shift one bit or look duller or less flawless. I sounds strange but it seems to be water resistant; I usually become oily towards the end of the day but it doesn't disrupt this foundation or affect it one bit. So happy.

It's rare to find a full coverage foundation that's lightweight and breathable at the same time but this one ticks all the boxes. I love the body shop purely because they boast natural and cruelty free products and they really work. After applying it, the yellow undertone really brightens my skin and makes it look clearer and healthier. I absolutely love the way my makeup looks when I use it, really brings together the whole look.

If you've used this foundation I'd love to know your thoughts.
