If you haven’t experienced the full potential of your foundation you may want to try out Tricia Sawyer Full Potential Foundation.
Creamy, moisturizing, and richly pigmented this foundation is sure to cover all your woes and leave behind flawless, even skin.
For most of my makeup life I’ve used cream foundations not liquids, not powders, but cream. I find cream works best for my dry skin and offers great coverage however cream is a tricky little product as it wears off considerably quicker than powders and liquids or at least that’s been my experience. Tricia Sawyer Full Potential Foundation is probably the most pigmented cream foundation I’ve tried before so anyone who has serious skin woes may likely like how much coverage you can get out of a simple pot.
Tricia Sawyer Full Potential Foundation is made up of two shades of foundation so each pot offers the ability to blend the perfect shade to match your skin. This is quite like my own personal favorite foundation of choice, Morgen Schick Hide and Highlight palette, so I’m quite used to blending two shades for a good match. I particularly like having the option of two shades since some days I need to go lighter and others I need a bit darker or just blend the two for a perfect me match.
Actually their is some confusion whether or not Full Potential Foundation is indeed a foundation or a concealer or both. In answer to this question you’ll find that Full Potential actually multitasks as both. I have this in medium and sadly it wasn’t particularly great at concealing my under eye circles simply because the medium shade looked too “natural” for me. I prefer my concealer to be a few shades lighter and a more natural look makes me look tired however I do think anyone with serious dark circles will absolutely be thrilled with the intense coverage this provides. I did find it was a teeny tiny bit too dry for my under eyes though!
It’s best to keep a few key factors in mind when using this. Remember to prep your face fully prior to use. Moisturize well, prime, and apply a good base that will allow the foundation to ease onto face easily as the formula isn’t all that creamy and takes a bit of work to buff on. I highly suggest grabbing the Tricia Sawyer Foundation Brush for application as it’s a nice small brush head that gets into the pot easily and buffs the foundation perfectly onto skin. Remember, it’s very important to use a small amount of product to start (likely a small amount will be all you need) and later if you need more you can build up coverage. The product is rich in pigmentation and using too much will make you look quite “made up” so to speak.
The formula is oil free so it’s feels quite weightless on (if you use the correct amount that is). Interestingly enough it almost feels like a mineral foundation and has a powder like dry down on the face. Luckily, the finish of the foundation doesn’t interfere with my dry skin and wears well. The powder-like finish does make me wonder how well it would work for oily skin so I’ll have to wait for Summer to find out.
This comes in four shades and as I mentioned above I tried medium but I do think light would have been a better match considering I like wearing my foundation a shade or two lighter than my natural skin tone. I thought that medium was too beige for me but it still wore quite well just not what I’m used too.
The Tricia Sawyer Foundation Brush I mentioned earlier on is quite good and I’m glad I had it for application. It fits the contour of my face quite well and makes buffing foundation on easy! It’s now a favorite go to brush for foundation application as it’s small head size fits easily under my eyes, on the sides of my nose, etc…quite a nice little brush.
All in all quite a few people would absolutely love the benefits of Tricia Sawyer Full Potential Foundation especially if they have major problem areas that need extra coverage. I’m still in my testing phase and I haven’t quite decided if I love it yet but I definitely like what I’ve tried so far!
Who would might love it?
- Anyone who has acne scarring, large pores, or other skin problems they want to hide with a pigmented foundation.
- Those with dry skin who prefer a cream foundation that doesn’t settle into fine lines, age your skin, or flake up.
- Those who like their foundation to perform double duty as a means of coverage for both the face and the under eye area.
Overall, the product has some seriously great points and I think it could hide pretty much any drama you may be experiencing on your face. Particularly I think it could possibly be a wonder treatment for covering major problems.

Check it. I was just telling you how much I love lip stains with my Missha Tinted Lip Marker Review right?
So let me introduce you to another fine lip stain…might as well do two stains in one day! What the heck I feel like living dangerously today!
Tricia Sawyer Clearly Pretty Lipgloss has my heart at the moment as far as lip stains go! Loves it!
What is it? It’s a body heat-activated lip gloss that turns the perfect, customized shade of pink! Basically it enhances your own natural lip color flushing lips to a really intense pink that’s quite beautiful! I tried it and my sister tried it and we both got different results. Mine turned a rather dramatic fuchsia pink that I was absolutely loving and my sister it turned a rather dark red that was quite charming! I wouldn’t mind either shade in all honesty as they both were rocking as far as I’m concerned!
I’d call this a liquid stain considering that the formula isn’t quite intensely glossy. You can use a bit more gloss on top after application to get a fuller lip look. The formula does get super props for creating a rather sizzling shade of pink on my lips! It goes on clear but takes a mere second to turn into a brighter shade of pink or in my sister’s case red!
I thought it was rather interesting that it turned a delicate pink on my arm but on my lips it was a louder shade of pink! I guess the body temperature of my arm was a bit cooler than that of my lips.
If you adore the look of just kissed or just bitten lips you should try out Tricia Sawyer Clearly Pretty Lip Gloss! Good stuff! The Muse likey this one…alot!

Tricia Sawyer Skin Balancing Water Primer Review
Ahhh water. Our body loves it and our skin needs it plus it’s cheap as day old chips! Skincare nirvana comes in a simple bottle or a flick of your wrist to turn on your faucet!
Did you know as babies we are made up of 75-80% water? As we grow older that decreases from 50-60% and as for our brain it’s made up of 85% water and our skin and bones 10-15%!
Helluva cheeky smart girl aren’t I?
When I seen Tricia Sawyer Skin Balancing Water Primer but of course the very first thing that popped out at me was WATER! I always look for water content in my primers considering how much I hate silicon based primers so anything that remotely resembles a moisturizing primer experience will end up in my greedy little hands instantly!
Tricia Sawyer Skin Balancing Water Primer contains silicon but it also has a unique cooling formula that’s water based which releases extra moisture when applied. The Muse likey! The primer is oil-free and glides gently onto the skin leaving behind a cooling, moist, dewy surface to prep your skin for foundation.
Although this didn’t do much to make my foundation last longer it did provide a flawless canvas for my coverage and made it easy to work with since it created a balanced, moist surface for my foundation. I think it successfully gave my skin a normal feel for a few hours of wear which was both shocking and delightful. Since my skin is combination at the moment, ranging from oily to dry in different locations of my face it was shocking to smooth some of this on, proceed to apply my makeup, and have my skin act normally for 8 hours. Obviously as per it’s name it does balance the skin.
The texture is extremely interesting as it does have a slight silicon feel but it does have a water base so it manages to feel very moist. I find silicon primers uncomfortable to wear and notice they pill on my face however the water base in this allows it to glide on perfectly well, absorb quickly, while feeling light and airy on. It creates a super moist feeling and in turn this provides ease of application for my foundation.
The primer comes in a really great pump style bottle that distributes just the right amount of primer with the first press.
All in all I really enjoyed this one and recommend going to try it out at your local Sephora. The texture and formula is truly dreamy plus eases application and creates a flawless finish to my skin for my makeup. I love the extra amount of moisturizer it provided and the way it eased my irritating combination skin was a huge plus!
This one looks like it’s shaping out to be a keeper!
You can nab yours at www.triciasawyer.com or visit Sephora to try it out before you buy it!
The Muse likey! I see it becoming a fast favorite and possible a staple product in my morning makeup routine!

Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer Review
Tricia Sawyer Clearly Pretty Color Revealing Gloss caught my eye recently and I want to give it a try.
I wasn’t a big lover of Smashbox O-Gloss when I tried it out so this definately has my eye after seeing the promo. Aren’t you loving the fresh pinkness of the model’s lips? So juicy! Love it.
The gloss is body heat activated and gives your lips not only a glossy finish but also a gorgeous stained effect that completely customized by your body chemistry.
As I said Smashbox O-Gloss was slightly disappointing so I’m hopeful Tricia Sawyer Clearly Pretty Color Revealing Gloss will be a hit plus it’s $18 USD where as O-Gloss is $22 USD!
Review to follow shortly maybe!
