I had heard a few good reviews of this relatively new brand to Ireland and found out it was stocked in a nearby pharmacy.
I was very interested in a foundation specifically for oily/combination skin.
I was advised by a girl in the store that the Matte & Cover New Improved Formula would be best for me.
It retails for €12.99.
Shade selection is quite limited with only 4 shades.
Shade 200 Porcelain.
Shade 201 Warm Beige.
Shade 202 Natural.
Shade 203 Golden Beige.
I purchased shade 201 and I find it is more of a light beige which is perfect for my skin tone.
This foundation is advertised as dedicated to oily/combination skin. It is oil free, water based and silicone enriched. It also prevents clogging pores and the formation of blackheads.
It claims to be strong coverage. I find it is quite good coverage but for strong coverage I do 2 applications. I need strong coverage as I have redness, imperfections and mild breakouts at the moment.
It is a 30ml product which is slightly smaller than most foundations but I found I didn’t need to use too much.
This foundation was so easy apply, it blends in so well and easily. Much better than a lot of other foundations that I love.
It has a nice smell to it which is another plus.
I love the finish it gave my skin. It definitely is matte but does not look too “matte”, my skin looks like it can “breathe” and theres a nice glow to my skin.
It is definitely long lasting which is very important to me.
I have tried this foundation with and without primer. Also tried with and without matte powder. I can honestly say using a primer didn’t make a difference in the longevity but naturally I got a little longer when matte powder was applied over it.
On average I’d get 8 hours before it would start disappear around my nose.
I am very impressed with this foundation and can’t wait to try some more of Paese’s products 🙂 I have written a little blog on some other products I am interested in trying. You can read it here >>>
