I have had problematic / acne prone skin since I was about 14 years old, and in all honesty, it played a big part in my introduction to makeup. I would try to conceal the spots/ blemishes and scars ( still do ) with as many high coverage products that I could find, but the problem ( that I found at least) was that the heavier the coverage, the more the product seemed to clog my pores, which ended up in a vicious cycle of breaking out – concealing – breaking out because of the concealing!
So after about 5 years of trying loads of different foundations ( 5 to say the least) I have finally found one that I feel understands my sensitive and problematic skin. It is so light weight, doesn’t clog your pores and has a heavy coverage ( which is a dream combination, if you’re asking me) I love this product so much and i’m so impressed with how it has been working with my skin that I thought it would be cruel to not share it with the rest of you! So, if you haven’t already guessed it, the product I am talking about is …
Giorgio Armani’s Power Fabric Foundation.
Now, I know that this foundation is pretty popular with a lot of bloggers, and usually I am not one that loves to fall into the trap with hyped up products, but I was so fed up with not finding the right foundation for my skin that I thought I would just give it a go, just to see how I got on.
So I tried a sample of the foundation first, just to see how I got on with it – and I thought it wasn’t too bad, but needed to try it for a little longer to make up my mind – so I went back and asked for another sample ( which I never usually do, but I just couldn’t decide after the first one!) after I had gotten through the second one, I was convinced. My skin hadn’t broken out from the high coverage formula, it didn’t feel heavy on my skin, lasted the whole day and had a good colour match for tanned skin ( didn’t give me an orange undertone, which I find quite common with medium shades) – and so naturally I went back for the full-sized bottle!
So if any of you have quite problematic skin, I would strongly suggest trying out this foundation, because it honestly is just perfection! But if you have any other suggestions for high coverage, but non-clogging foundations , please let me know! I would love to hear about them, and maybe even give them a go ( if you think it could top this one!)
