Blush Beige 02
For the past year or to my go to everyday foundation has been the Revlon Colourstay for Combination /Oily skin and while I'm still a fan I just felt that throughout the winter months it was leaving my skin feeling a little dull. Do you ever have the feeling when you have finished your make up that it still just looks a bit..meh? I decided a foundation shake up was in order.
Before Christmas I had just move house so even though I wanted to test a high end foundation my bank balance just wouldn't allow it. After a lot of swatching I decided to go with the MeMeMe Flawless Cream Foundation in Blush Beige.
I've never tried a cream foundation before so I was quite intrigued and as the Laura Mercier foundation I was is called ‘Silk Crème’ I was hoping it might be similar?
The packaging is plastic which I'm not so keen on but I do like the fact that the inside moves up so you can see how much you have left, if that makes sense, (the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation does the same thing).
The product is dispensed by a pump and I use one pump to cover my whole face. This foundation blends into the skin so easily! I think that may be because it’s a cream, but I've never had a foundation that buffs in so easily and blends so well, this foundation with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush is a dream team. The coverage is medium but can be built up and it gives a semi matte finish, I wouldn't say matte but I also wouldn't say dewy so somewhere is the middle which is perfect for me as my t-zone can get quite oily I don’t want to much of a shiny finish.
The staying power is great and lasts the majority of my working day without the need to reapply.
The name states the word ‘Flawless’ which is a big promise but I have to agree, it covers all my blemishes and redness and leaves my skin looking smooth and healthy. It also has a slight vanilla scent when applying which is quite nice.
The MeMeMe Flawless Cream Foundation retails for £12.50 which is creeping up on the pricy side for a high street foundation but I’d say for the quality it’s worth the price. The only thing that would make this product better is a glass bottle.
Have you tried this foundation or anything from MeMeMe? What’s your favourite high street foundation?
