Product Review: Essence Soft Touch Mousse Foundation



I always love a good deal! Anyone who doesn't must be the type who can wipe their arse with $100 bills. Even if I could, there is far too much I could do with disposable income. I found out about
Essence flipping through and ad for ULTA. I was looking for a nail varnish similar to one I had seen on someone in a video. I found the dupe, but this mousse was sitting there staring at me. I thought, "No way this will match my skin."


It's based in Europe and I've never been able to get colors in foundation that suit me in the U.K. but it worked. I don't know why, but it's less than $5.00 it goes on like skin and it doesn't turn me AS oily as most foundations. I'm always oily and have to blot so no way will I say I went hours without blotting, I blot my face every two hours and eventually have no makeup on at the end of the day. I had a coupon for $3.50 off, and since this is not a prestige brand I was able to get everything in the picture for less than $10.00. I haven't done the nail art. It looks like a knock off of that Konad that everyone is using right now, but for work, I am very simple. It's either french tips or solids. That flashy stuff is reserved for special events and weekends.
I would recommend this product to anyone since it isn't expensive, but they do have testers and they will allow you to take a sample, try it (always in the sun) and you can purchase it at a later date if it doesn't oxidize. This didn't oxidize on me, which is rare. I'm usually orange about two hours after applying makeup or powder foundation. Good luck!
