Hello babes! It’s been a minute since I did a make-up post, but today I am serving you a product that is perfect for spring/summer. I do not like to wear full coverage make-up on hot days, unless I am bored and playing around with make-up. Otherwise I will just put on something that is lightweight on the skin. Today’s product is the Yves Rocher pure light moisturizing foundation which will be perfect for those hot days, so keep reading if you want to know more!
Packaging + Price
The product comes in a glass bottle with a dropper to dispense the product. It is 19,90€ for 30ml, but if you check their website or store regularly, there are often discounts. I myself found the price quite high for Yves Rocher, but again, keep an eye on the discounts.
I really like the dropper, as it makes sure you do not take too much product at once, and it is very hygienic.
When I applied the product for the first time, I was not a fan at all. It flaked and it separated immediately after applying and it just did not stick to every part of my face evenly. However, through experimentation I have found out that you have to find a primer that works with the product. For me personally, the W7 Porefection works nice under this foundation.
Powder is definitely necessary with this foundation to make sure you get the maximum wear out of it. It tends to move around a bit, due to it’s liquidy texture. I also advise not to use any liquid products on top of this (e.g. liquid highlighter) as it can also make the foundation separate.
Lastly, it is a moisturizing foundation, and I do feel like this foundation indeed does not dry out your skin, and that makes it suitable for those of us with dry skin as well.
Beautyblender or brush?
As for beautyblender or brush, I have to use a brush with this foundation. A beautyblender moves the foundation around and creates patches where there is no foundation. I don’t know why it happens, it is the only foundation that does this with a beautyblender. Moreover, there is better coverage with a brush. I do have to mention, however, that it takes a bit longer to blend nicely with a brush as it is a bit streaky at first, but keep blending and it will look better.
Before and after:
As you can see on the photos, the coverage the foundation provides is quite light to medium but it evens out your skintone nicely and is perfect for summer due to being so lightweight. It oxidizes a little bit, but nothing out of the ordinary. I am wearing the color Rose 200.
It takes some time to be able to work with the foundation in my opinion, but once you have found what works and what doesn’t, it is quite a nice, lightweight and natural foundation. However, there are foundations out there that are easier to work with for the same price, so I do not think I will purchase this again.
Have you tried this foundation? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Let me know!
