💗 FOUNDATION FRIDAY 💗 Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Make-Up

Hi Everyone

Hope you had a great week and have an even better weekend. I was saying to a friend the other day that the past few years haven’t been great years. I’ve been working too much and my personal life has taken a back seat. For some reason, I say for some reason because I’ve done nothing different but I feel like 2018 is going to be a great year. I have some great news that I would love to share with everyone, my family, friends and even my followers but I don’t want to say anything until everything is confirmed.

Anyway back to the reason why I am here today and hopefully all of you. I’ve been using the new Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Foundation for a few months now and I love it. I was using the shade Fresh Ivory but in the last couple weeks I’ve been at the beach so I’m really tanned so it’s a tad light for me so I would need to switch to Fresh Nude/Honey/Sun until the winter when I can go back to Fresh Ivory/Nude

ABOUT   Essence Frsh & Fit Awake Make-Up is enriched with a vitamin complex and cranberry water, the foundation “wakes up” the skin and gives it a healthy look. the delicate light reflecting pigments ensure a smooth complexion with a fresh touch

To start off with lets chat the packaging. I love that Essence has taken a completely different route, from their previous “plastic” packaging of their foundations to the now Heavy and Sturdy Glass Bottle with a pump action head.

The formula and consistency of this liquid foundation is medium thickness that can either be a light coverage one application, yet if you do a second application it can go to a medium to full coverage without feeling thick or looking cakey.

It lasts a good 8-10 hours on me when i set it with a loose powder. I can’t talk if it lasts as long if worn alone as i ALWAYS wear a setting powder to minimize oiliness. Its easy to use either applying it with your fingers, a blending sponge or a makeup brush but my preferred way is with a damp makeup sponge. Its not a matte foundation, it has more of a dewy finish.

I’ve only seen it available from Dis-Chem stores for R 109.95
