Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation in Light Cool
Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation ($14.99, 1.0 fl. oz.) is available exclusively at CVS, like the rest of the celebrity’s cosmetics and skin care line. Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation is hypoallergenic and paraben free.
It’s available in eight shades: Light Warm, Light Cool, Light/Medium Cool, Medium Warm, Medium Cool, Medium/Deep Warm, Medium/Deep Cool, and Deep Warm. I’m not sure why they didn’t make Light/Medium Warm and Deep Cool shades. I purchased Light Cool. As usual, it’s a little dark for me but I can get away with wearing it.
I buy them all the time, but I don’t have very high expectations for drugstore foundations because I’m usually disappointed by them. I’m really surprised by this foundation, I love it! You get medium/full coverage without looking like your skin is totally dull because the foundation has a satin, almost glowy finish. It looks like really good skin. Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation reminds me of one of my all time favorite foundations, Lancome Teint Miracle. If you love Teint Miracle or you’re looking for a more affordable alternative, try this one.
If you have a normal to dry skin type, this will be a great, moisturizing foundation for you. My skin is on the oily side and I’ve found that this holds up well as long as I’m willing to blot (and possibly powder) once or twice.
As you can see in the photo below (I’m only wearing foundation of half of my face in the photo all the way on the left), Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation evens out my skin tone really well. You can see a big difference even on my forehead, which isn’t all that red (at least compared to the rest of my face, but this picture reminds me why I love a good foundation!).
It does cost a few dollars more than an average drugstore foundation, but everything from the packaging to the finish looks expensive, so I think it’s a steal at $14.99. I’m really excited to try more Nuance Salma Hayek products, the few that I own are fantastic!
