Hey beauties, before I talk about this foundation I just want to say, in regards to there foundations, bb creams, and tinted moisturizers I will not purchase nor repurchase those type of face product from 100% pure due to an ingredient that they use which is Japanese Honeysuckle (a natural form of paraben.) But just to clarify this review wasn’t based on that, I did use most of it up already and will use it up until it’s finished.
Let me clarify something that I always do before reviewing, I did purchase these products myself with my own money from their website it was not sent to me and it is not sponsored. All opinions are my own as always in any post I do.
Alright then, since I got that out the way let’s get right into this review, which was a long time coming. These products were tried with different methods and ways to give them a fair chance just like any other product I try. This is not my first time trying 100% pure products, which I actually enjoy a few of their products that I plan on reviewing soon. I was so excited to try the second skin foundation, as serum foundations have worked great for my skin. But this one just hit a little different than other serum foundations that just didn’t work as I’d accepted it too.

Let me break down the pros and cons of this foundation, also I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it, it was just ok.
- SHADE 5- Tan with a neutral undertone was an exact match to my tone
- Thin, watery-like consistency
- Decent coverage
- Felt like nothing on the skin
- Looked natural on the skin
- Greasy but drying on the skin
- The bottle pump gets really messy and everywhere
- The formula doesn’t mix well, breaks apart even when shaken really well
- Hard to blend in the skin no matter what application tools use
- Clings on to dry patches, texture, flaky skin and accentuated them.
- Sinks into your fine lines
- Only 7 shades
Conclusion this foundation just had more cons than pros and it made me look older than I am which is a NO-NO. I have oily skin and this didn’t work for me.

- brightened the appearance of the skin under my eyes
- stays in place
- no smudging
- the wand is a problem
- very thin consistency
- no coverage
- creases in the lines
- fades to quick
- difficult to smooth out
I really wanted to love this corrector but it just wasn’t for me, not a lot of correctors work for me but when I do find one it works wonders. I felt it was very sheer rather than light coverage and it really didn’t do what it said to cover the purple hues that I have along with my darkness. It was way too drying, but it did brighten just the right amount.
Have you tried out this foundation and corrector? If so what are your thoughts on it?
Until next time,
