Sometimes we are a little carry away with youtube gurus or even with some Instagram hypes! But is it even worth it? I’m giving you my first-time impressions on the popular Sephora 10Hr Wear Perfection Foundation.
If you never heard about this Foundation, then you probably don’t follow beauty gurus like Patrícia Bright or Tati – both love this Foundation!
I was very curious because I have the Sephora Collection Glow Foundation and that is one of my favorite foundations. But as the weather keeps getting warmer, I wanted something not completely matte but less glowy.
According to the Sephora’s website, the 10Hr Foundation:
‘Conceal blemishes, pigmentation marks, scars, and dark spots with this foundation that provides a natural, beautiful finish. This formula blends with your skin tone to create an invisible veil, like a second skin that adapts to all the movements of the face for optimum comfort all-day long. Hyaluronic acid smooths the skin, while antioxidant vitamin E protects against external stressors. Soft focus pigments blur out blemishes and soften the appearance of wrinkles for a youthful-looking, even complexion.’
It’s available in 37 different shades, which is a great range. It has very light shades and different darker shades. I bought the shade 14 – Clair light (delicate Beige).
The product comes in a semi-opaque glass bottle and the pump on the Foundation is really good because you can control how much product you take out.
It costs $20.00 and brings 25ml 0,84 oz fl. which is a little different from the normal 30ml 1oz fl. that most of the foundations bring.
Sephora brand products are not necessary drugstore priced but they’re not high end either. They’re a lot more affordable than other brands sold there.
My first impression
It does look like second skin and it does not oxidize. The product is very light on the skin and non-patch. The coverage is buildable and it’s non-tacky. The effect is not glowy but it’s also not completely dry matte. I think I will like a lot to use this Foundation on the warmer weather because although this is not luminous, we can add it – with a luminous powder or a good luminous bronzer.
This stayed on my skin beautifully, even on my most problematic areas, like my T-zone. Normally, I have a lot of problems on the skin around my nose. It took me seconds to apply this product, without any problem.
I used this Foundation with my normal primer – the Too Faced Hangover and the Makeup Forever O2 Setting Spray as my last step to set everything up.
I only use two pumps for all skin, I could build this up using more foundation, but I wanted a natural finish. I used a brush but if you use a beauty blender you will notice more coverage. I also have a little of Zoeva blush.
I took some pictures after 6Hr and although we see some fading around my nose, I have to tell you that I’m was not mad at all with it because it was not too noticeable. It still looked very presentable after so many hours.
I still could see some foundation. Unfortunately, the product started to grab some dry patches on my nose and all that oil from the day made it not so pretty. My forehead skin was a little patchy but I was expecting this after so many hours. Overall, it wasn’t very pretty after so many hours but I had a very stressful day, and my skin oils were on fire.
I really like this Foundation. It lasted a lot of time, not 10Hr but it stayed very good for a good 7/8Hr. I’m not mad at it at all, the price is good and I found a perfect shade for my still not bronzed skin. Of all my foundations, this is the one that lasted more time on my skin.
I think this Foundation fits in a lot of different skin types, I can see a dry skin liking it, but I also can see an oily skin type too. The coverage can be easily build up, depending on the quantity of product that you use. I used 2 pumps for a day coverage, but my skin doesn’t have a lot of problems so you may use more.
I can easily see why so many beauty bloggers like this Foundation. It’s definitely Beauty workers approved!
