Flower Beauty Light Illusion Foundation Review

Hello little darlings.

And I don’t care who knows it!

Usually I wait until the end of a post to talk about how much I love or hate a certain product but this one’s got me singin’ from the rooftops!

If you refer back to this post, you will remember the exhaustive treasure hunt I endured for this stuff. First of all, it is ONLY sold at Ulta (not Walmart, I learned that the hard way…) and due to it’s popularity,  finding the right shade in stock was damn near impossible.

BUT I FOUND IT.  $13.99 in L2.

packaging

Glass bottle? Rose cold accents? WITH A PUMP? The packaging is makeup enthusiasts dream. What’s more, one pump dispenses a perfectly ample amount of product.

Consistency

This foundation is fairly thick. It doesn’t spread much when pumped from the bottle.

formula

I find the claims of this product to be absolutely true. The coverage is medium and is buildable. I like to apply by placing dots all over my face and blending them out with  a brush. So far, my favorite brush for this is a toothbrush style (Artis) one. It blends into the skin effortlessly and leaves a gorgeous luminosity. I have set this with just a little pressed powder and also a loose translucent powder and both work nicely. On me, it truly just looks like my skin but smoother, more luminous and without all the imperfections!

performance

Each time I see a review or video on this foundation, the biggest complaint is the longevity. Folks claim that it breaks up on them and starts looking a mess after just a few hours.

Now, keep in mind I am a dry to normal gal in her 30’s and not a 22 year-old YouTuber with perfect skin but this foundation performs LIKE A DREAM. And I have the pictures to prove it.

These pictures were taken outside in natural light after a stressful Friday at work. I had applied the foundation at 6:30 am and these photos were taken at 5:30 pm. I had been eating, sweating and running around town all day.

No filters, no nothin.

Overall

Well duh. Yes I love this foundation. Yes I will buy 23902 more bottles before they stupidly discontinue it. It looks good, wears well and costs less than $15.

go get you some.
