mark Cream to Powder Foundation Review & Swatches
mark has a new Cream to Powder Foundation launching in June that some of you might wanna try out! Could prove a cheaper option for those that enjoy or have wanted to try Urban Decay Surreal Skin Cream-to-Powder Foundation.
Let’s take a look!
A cream to powder foundation with a mineral formulation!
The first thing I noticed about mark’s Cream to Powder Foundation is that it’s extra creamy! Where as Urban Decay’s version runs thinner and more powdery upon application with my skin, mark’s version is thicker and creamier. Even with my skin so dry I’m still experiencing a rather perfect finish with this. It doesn’t accentuate dryness and isn’t so matte that it looks too dry on my face, it ranges more dewy.
I tried it in a really crummy shade, Buff Natural, which was way too dark but they have seven other shades to choose from so you have a good range of color to locate one for your specific tone.
The packaging is a dual compartment compact that features the cream foundation on the top with a full size mirror and a stealthy little compartment on the bottom that contains the sponge for application.
The formula is infused with something called Lumiskin which helps to brighten skin plus mineral pigments which make the foundation extra buildable for super coverage. It applies very easily as I mentioned above and glides on simply without alot of drama plus it’s oil, talc, fragrance, and paraben free so if you’re sensitive it’s missing alot of the bad stuff that may irritate your skin.
It actually wasn’t something I personally liked because the coverage is too much. I prefer more of a lightweight foundation and this was heavily pigmented and builds up crazy easy so I felt like I had a bit too much makeup on.
But those with really problem skin can easily embrace such a formula as it really does have an excellent, flawless finish with a comfortable wear.
If you’re super oily you might want to be a tad wary as I didn’t feel like the it dried down to a complete matte powder finish. To me it felt extra creamy and dewy which my dry skin loved but those with oily skin might not love.
- Anyone with dry skin who likes cream foundation.
- Anyone looking for a cheaper version of Urban Decay’s Cream to Powder Foundation (this is $18 versus their $34 price tag).
- Anyone seeking super buildable coverage to conceal problem skin.
- Those with oily skin (be ware this is pretty heavy, creamy, and hydrating).
- Those who do not wear foundation all over their face (I don’t and this is something that looks patchy when applied in just certain areas).
mark Cream to Powder Foundation will make some lovely lady quite happy with it’s pigmented formula and super buildable coverage but it wasn’t quite for me. I loved the creamy, dewy finish and felt like my skin looked quite happy with it in place but it also felt like I was wearing a little too much makeup and when I applied in just certain areas I felt like it looked odd and wrong for some reason.
If you have problem skin, redness, or want more even coverage this will please.
This will be available from meetmark.com in June for $18 or from your favorite mark Rep.
