Review-Color Studio Matt Perfection Foundation (Before & After)

I'm all about matte, oil controlling products in the summers so lets see how Color Studios Matt Perfection fared in this heat on my oily-combination skin. 


Packaging-The foundation is housed in a compact with two compartments, one carrying the actually product itself and the other carrying a sponge that makes it ideal for traveling but the sponge really isn't the best quality, and I prefer to use my fingers anyways. 

Consistency/Finish/Blending-This is a cream based foundation with a cream-to-powder finish. Unless you have extremely oily skin, you don't really need to set this foundation with powder. Upon application, it is incredibly easy to blend with your fingers and that is my preferred method. I would say don't use the sponge provided since it really ruins the outcome of this really good foundation. 

Coverage-Now when it comes to coverage this is a fairly decent foundation which I'd say gives you medium coverage which is build-able but you have to be careful when applying more than one layer since it can dry you out in places like the corners around your nose. Make sure you moisturize beforehand, irregardless of however many layers you want since this can be drying without proper moisturiziation beforehand. This does a great job of evening out my skin tone and adding a bit of brightness to it but it doesn't hide my incredibly dark circles completely, but I guess that is what a concealer is for, not a foundation.

Lasting Power/matte Claims-The lasting power of this in my opinion is excellent! It is sweat-proof even, and stays matte even in humid conditions for a good 4-5 hours. If the weather is on the pleasant side then this foundation easily carries on for 6 plus hours with minimal touch ups. If you set this with powder (not necessary) even then it stays matte for 4-5 hours in the blazing heat which definitely impresses me! 

Summary-So all in all this is a medium coverage foundation which can be a bit drying if the skin is not properly prepped and stays matte for 4-5 hours on an average.

Color Studio is available in all leading departmental stores and is available online at www.just4girls.pk & Beauty Arena. 

Price-PKR 1200

Hope you enjoyed this review and I didn't give you nightmares with the bare faced picture!

Until next time, tc.
