This foundation came out about two months ago. As you know with foundations I have a standard, has to be lightweight and doesn’t make my skin itchy. Too much to ask? Yes probably but when I swatched this foundation in shoppers it felt so beautiful. Almost like a thick hydrating serum, it blended out beautiful on the back of my hand and I knew in that moment this was a foundation I needed to review. For reference my skin type is normal to dry. I bought the shade light and it is a perfect shade match.
The claims: “Lightweight, waterproof and pigmented AF, our new Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Full Coverage Foundation hustles as hard as you do. This comfy liquid formula comes in 45 flattering tones that don’t transfer. Every creamy shade glides on smooth, delivering matte coverage and color that stays true for up to 24 hours. Our little over achiever also works to control shine and mattify your complexion all-day long. But it doesn’t stop there: this foundation is noncomedogenic and suitable for normal, oily, combination, and sensitive skin types”
Lightweightness: This is a true claim. This foundation, while full coverage and matte, feels very light weight on the skin and doesn’t make my feel dry and tight. Now, keep in my mind I mix everything I use with a hydrating serum (even tinted moisturizers) so I think that definitely helped. But I did wear this only over a glowy primer and the finish was flawless. I will say that you should moisturize if you tend to lean towards the dry side but in any case I didn’t find this grabbed onto any patches. It did sort of cake up around my nose but quite honestly everything does this to me and I don’t like wearing foundation on my nose anyway as per Violette Fr’s recommendation that it creates the optical illusions that you aren’t wearing foundation.
This foundation also wears really nicely throughout the day. I went to skating in this foundation and did my own pre skate before coaching and it didn’t melt or break up on my skin (gee too bad this didn’t come out in the middle of summer when I was in plus 40 weather). I will continue though to wear this in the winter mixed with more dewy foundations because this foundation plays nicely with literally everything I’ve mixed it with, which is something I like in any base product. I also wanted to compare this to other shades of foundations I typically wear hence the picture below if you are trying to shade match.
The other thing I greatly appreciate about this is the packaging. I really like the glass packaging and the pump and the lack of chemical smell. This feels very high end (not that I’ve tried many high end foundations) but it feels very lux which I think we can all appreciated in a drugstore foundation. Speaking of drugstore, this foundation was 16.49 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart which to me is a bit pricey for a foundation, but again compared to the Wet n Wild photofocus foundation that for a foundation that is inexpensive has nice coverage, but doesn’t have the same performance as this one and the wet n wild also smells like paint thinner. This foundation to me feels very quite substantial and while I can’t compare this to any high end foundation as I don’t own any, I really love it overall. As well, it has 45 shades which is a wonderful shade range and was done in collaboration with Alissa Ashley.
Overall rating, I haven’t done this in so long, but hot damn 5/5 stars for me. If you have extremely dry skin I’d stay away but if you are normal, oily, combo and sensitive this is a perfect foundation for you!
