I have been incredibly impressed by the brand Hourglass. Their highlighters are the absolute best, so I was so excited when I received a sample of the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation. The full-size product retails at Sephora and similar retailers for $56.
I was incredibly disappointed in this foundation! It truly is a powder finish, but it settled roughly against my skin. The finish wasn’t at all smooth. It was matte to the point of looking very cakey, which is a look that looks bad on pretty much everyone. I used a really small amount of product but was not able to make the foundation look more natural. Even when I’m wearing a medium to full coverage foundation, I expect it to blend well and have a finish that doesn’t make it super obvious that I’m wearing a thick foundation. I’ll have to give this one a pass, and I’m so glad I received a sample and didn’t actually spend $56 on this product. There are plenty of matte-finish drugstore products (like Fit Me from Maybelline!) that work so much better and are a fraction of the price.
What is your favorite matte-finish foundation? Be sure to let me know in the comments section!
