If you have read a few of my previous posts, you'll know I'm a sucker for a dewy finish. Having dry skin makes it easier for me to achieve a nicer finish with a dewy foundation than a matte one so obviously it's the one I'm going to go for on a day to day basis. That was until I picked this one up.
Catrice Nude Illusion Foundation
This is quite a thick consistency but it glides on to a light to medium coverage, depending how much you use. It takes two and a half pumps for my face and a little down my neck and I get a medium coverage. I apply it using the Real Techniques blending sponge but using my fingers works just a well.
The thing I love about this is that it's not a flat matte finish as it contains light reflecting pigments in it, which makes my skin look alive and still has a tiny little bit of a glow.
I do still consider it a matte finish though.
It doesn't cling to any dry patches that I have on my skin, which was my issue with other matte foundations I've tried
It's almost un-noticable on my skin after I apply it so I think they named it accurately.
The bottle is a glass one with a black plastic pump that gives out a nice amount of product.
There are five shades available so not the best selection unfortunately. I was lucky that the lightest shade 010 Nude Ivory matches me perfectly so hopefully you'll find a shade that suits you.
This is €8.49 which I'm fairly sure is the most expensive item on Catrice stands at the minute.
This is well worth the money and if your looking for a new foundation I would highly recommend it.
Have you tried this foundation? Do you prefer dewy or matte finishes?
