Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Essence # Insta Perfect Foundation.
This new foundation looked super interesting when I saw it in the store and you know that when I see sheer coverage and matt finish I usually flip out because it’s what I look for in a foundation.
And this one was super cheap too. I mean I thought it was absolutely awesome.
The shade range, as always with essence, sucks (I mean it comes in 6 shades which is definitely an improvement for them but the darkest shade is not that dark), I have the shade 30 Funny Ivory and it’s way too light for me.
You can get it here for about 5$.
The bottle is made of plastic and it is a squeezy tub.
I like the packaging, it’s definitely travel-friendly and clumsy proof. I love the more professional vibe of it.
FORMULA & COVERAGE
The formula is quite thin and runny with medium coverage. It’s very matt.
The foundation is quite hard to blend because it dries really quickly and you can’t move it or it will get really blotchy.
My favourite way to apply it’s dabbing it with my fingers on the face and then blend it with a damp sponge.
This foundation looks so BAD on me: it grabs to dry patches, it shows so much of my texture and it enhances my pores. I really don’t think it works for my skin type.
It also transfers quite badly so if I touch my face it will come off.
This foundation lasts for 3 hours before getting shiny but it rubs off.

I wanted to like this foundation way more than I do but it doesn’t work for my skin type. I like the packaging and that’s about it for me, it grabs to my dry patches and it shows texture and pores plus it doesn’t last. The shade range is bad and I don’t recommend it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
