Hello, my name is Ashley and I am foundation-a-holic. Okay, okay, it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it's true! For the first episode of the inevitable foundation diaries, is a new drop from Fitglow Beauty, a brand I already know I love. Want to know the scoop? I got you covered. Big time.
Okay, so I apologize for this image but in order to be thorough, it had to be done. Above it makeupless me, looking for any coffee in site, with that nice morning bun, HAWT. In fact, I am looking very "bug-chic." I wanted to give you guys a little reference for the coverage of this foundation, and though my skin looks pretty good here, I do need to cover some redness and old acne scarring. So now that you have seen this...MOVIN' ON!
Now here I am moments after applying! This is just straight up foundation. No concealer, no powder, no nothin'. So if you couldn't tell, I am pretty damn blown away with the coverage. I would say it's a good medium, but completely buildable with a second layer and doesn't ever get cakey. Check number one, Fitglow, check one.
Alright, so here I am completely made up. Ahhhh, that's more like it. Now let's get serious. When I first applied this foundation, I found myself doing a double-check in the mirror. 'That's my skin?!' I thought to myself. Alas, it was, with the beautiful help FitGlow's new Vita-Active Foundation. This photo was was taken around noon, and I made sure to document the wear throughout the day so you guys could really see what I am talking about, because this stuff is seriously no joke. The coverage is an absolutely beautiful medium yet buildable finish, and it looks EXACTLY like skin. It looks like I woke up this morning blessed with a perfect complexion, even though we all know that isn't the case. I had very good first impressions that held up throughout the day!
Alright, so on to the nitty gritty. This photo was taken three hours into wear. As you can see, IT STILL LOOKS LOVELY! I was still slightly skeptical, because three hours isn't exactly an entire days worth of wear, but so far, so good.
This next photo was taken at 6pm EST, meaning this is six hours into wear. For me, this is when I can normally notice some break up around my nose, chin, and forehead. Places where oil tends to build up and really let's me know what products are here for the long haul. At 6, all I noticed was slight wear at my chin. This day I was struggling with quite the cystic pimple, you know the ones that take up the entirety of your chin? Yeah, that is what we were working with. So I gave the foundation a pass this time on the chin wear, but everything else was still in place and looking flawless, STILL! So I touched up the chin, and went on my merry way. NOTE: When it does wear, it doesn't wear all patchy and gross! It wears evenly and as nice as can be.
To wrap this up, I did take a photo at 9pm EST, a big NINE hours later, but unfortunately it was quite dark and the image did no service in showing you the appearance, so just trust me on this one, I wouldn't lie to you babes! At 9pm, it still looked perfect. The touch up held up for the next three hours, and the rest of my face was budge proof. Also, keep in mind this is with NO powder and NO primer. Can we imagine the wear time with those thrown into the mix?!
So what I am trying to say is, this foundation is phenomenal. How phenomenal you ask? Well let's just say it is currently tied at number one with my absolute 'Ride or Die' Foundation, the Kjaer Weis. It's love. You need it. Simple as that! Want to get your paws on it? Available right here. Don't forget that code 'GREENB' will save you $ at checkout!
