NYC Natural Matte Foundation in Cameo

I bought  this in Sam McCauleys chemist a few months back when there was a special 3 for 2 going on on cosmetics. I actually swatched a different shade on my hand in the shop but when i picked one up to purchase it i actually picked the wrong colour. It was only €3.49 so i wasn't too devastated BUT when I tried this, I actually realised this colour suited me better than the one i had tested anyway! Go figure!

Natural light
Blended in well

This is simplistic packaging but it does the job and tells you everything you need to know. The bottom is a screw top as opposed to a flip top and the actual hole in the product makes it easy to apply just the right amount of product onto the back of my hand before using a blending sponge for my face.

It's not my favourite foundation ever but for the price, it's pretty darn great. I like the matte finish of this, it doesn't look shiny once it is applied and blended but at the same time it doesn't look like a layer of cement on your face either. It's lightweight enough but i would say this provides medium coverage- more than a tinted moisturiser but not as much as a foundation from MAC or the e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation. It smells nice enough too and it blends well on my combination skin with a blending wedge.

Cheap and cheerful, worth a try
