Color Studio Professional Matt Perfection Foundation [Review]



Always on the hunt for the perfect foundation especially for the summers? If the answer to that is yes then you need to try this one! I'm reviewing for you a cream foundation today, the Color Studio Professional Matt Perfection Foundation.

Color Studio Professional Claims:
Matt perfection foundation coats the skin with an invisible film of color that perfectly minimizes all imperfections assuring an incredible natural flawless finish. It contains specific active ingredients with repairing and moisturizing action and the formulation is preservative free.

My Thoughts:
First up the packaging, I quite like it, it's a black plastic compact with a high-end feel to it. The compact is divided into two compartments, the one on top has the product and the lower one houses a sponge applicator plus it has a mirror so as far as the packaging goes it deserves 10/10!

I got the shade in Pink which is the lightest shade in the range with pink undertones. The consistency of the foundation is thin, very soft and smooth. When I apply it on my face it doesn't feel heavy at all and blends into the skin easily, the sponge applicator works well with this if you don't have a brush and makes it travel friendly too however I use my beloved Elf studio flat top brush and it gives a better finish. I have not applied it with a wet sponge considering that it applied easily with a dry sponge. This compact is great for on-the-go application as you don't have to necessarily carry a separate brush for applying it and it doesn't get your hands messy either!

The coverage is from light to medium which would make you grab your concealors if you're having a bad skin day because I personally avoid layering it for coverage since it leaves a white cast on my face which is most probably because of the shade choice, I don't think it would've been a problem if I had a yellow-toned shade, pink probably is not my right shade in the range!

This is great for everyday use especially during the day since it gives you a light coverage and doesn't feel heavy either. If you have dry or combination skin you might need to moisturize first because it sets to a matte finish and can accentuate dry patches; however for oily skinned girls, this foundation would be ideal as it keeps the face matte for a long period. I can totally skip the setting powder because as I mentioned it dries to a matte finish and there's no need for me to further apply anything else over it, but it transfers so a setting powder may overcome that problem. I don't like the scent, it would be lovely if they could replace it with a nice fruity one or something.  

Overall I really like the handyness of the compact, the affordable price tag and product quality! A keeper definitely with the correct shade choice!

Price and Availability:
Priced at PKR 1200, available at Color Studio Professional stands in supermarkets across the country. you can also purchase it from Just4Girls.pk.
