BURT'S BEES Gives Us Natural Foundation That Wears Like The Expensive Ones!
Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Foundation is perfect for those looking for a natural makeup alternative. This one is 98.9% natural and formulated with responsibly sourced Meadowfoam Seed Oil, known for its moisturizing benefits
This mineral foundation formula is full coverage and is said to nourish the skin through the day. With 18 colours in the collection, from 1005 PORCELAIN (the fairest shade) to 1062 COCOA (the darkest shade), it covers a wide range of skin tones, although I still found it challenging to match myself.
For reference, I’m light-medium with yellow undertones and ended up wearing 1020 ALMOND BEIGE, a shade that is said to be light-medium with cool undertones. (I found it to have more neutral undertones.)
It wore beautifully all day and blended well with both a brush and makeup sponge. I was testing the Fenty Beauty Hydrating Foundation (where I’m shade 230) before the Burt’s Bees one, and I have to say they felt comparable at the end of the day. My combination skin was hydrated and the makeup was still in place at 11:30 at night.
For C$21, This is a great drugstore foundation that you need to check out, especially if natural makeup is your thing!
