You may have read my last blog post where I introduced the Pierre Rene brand. To recap, little known in the UK, it is the number one cosmetics brand in most Eastern European countries. Pierre Rene was the ‘go-to’ brand for Miss England 2015, and more recently Miss World and was exclusively used in the ‘BLOSSOM’ catwalk show at London Fashion Week. And, all the products are kind to animals and kind to your skin.
Recently, I’ve added their Skin Balance Cover Foundation to my make-up kit and thought I would share my thoughts with you. Available in ten shades, covering both warm and cool skin tones, this is a waterproof, fluid foundation.
Three things attracted me to try this foundation:
Applying the foundation after primer, I find that it buffs or stipples on to the skin beautifully. The formula doesn’t ‘set’ quickly like some full coverage foundations do, allowing you to layer the product on to create custom coverage.
Those with drier skin may find that no setting powder is needed with the demi-matte finish this foundation has. Those with oily or combination skin, or who prefer a totally matte finish, will be very happy with how this foundation sets after a loose or pressed powder is applied.
As an MUA specialising in bridal, it’s really important that a foundation lasts the whole day. This foundation is long-wearing, doesn’t crease into fine lines and doesn’t dry out.
Down to practicalities! The foundation comes in a 30ml glass bottle with a high quality pump. I usually find two pumps will cover the face, and more can be applied if needed.
I’m loving it! I now have a range of shades in my kit, ready to work their magic.
It’s also amazingly affordable for a professional product, and the RRP is £18.25. I am a stockist for the product and I am offering all my blog readers 10% off if you contact me and quote: PRBLOG!
