NYC Skin Matching Foundation in Fair

I purchased this in Sam McCauleys pharmacy when they were having a 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics. I read lots of good reviews on this and I was eager to try it myself. I purchased this in the shade Fair and it set me back €4.97.


Swatched heavily, blends in better than this!

Packaging:
This comes in a simple plastic tube with all the information displayed on it and a screw top. It's not the sleekest or poshest but for less than a fiver what do you expect. I have no qualms whatsoever with the packaging- i think it does the job perfectly. 

Product:
I like this foundation alot and i do find that it does actually match my skin quite well. I am usually dubious about these skin matching foundations since I got a disastrous No 7 one a few years ago, but i have read many great reviews about these, and to be honest, I have nothing bad to add. I apply this with a blending wedge and it blends really well, i like the consistency of this, it feels a bit thicker than a tinted moisturiser but lighter than a foundation, and coverage is somewhere between the two also. This feels like on the face and does not leave a cakey finish at all and I also find that it takes setting powders etc well. It lasts a long time, it doesn't dry out my skin and doesn't make my skin feel greasy.

Verdict:
Pleasantly impressed with this, I'd recommend it.

Star Rating:

Hope this helps xxx
