I'm going to cut right to the chase here. Couleur Caramel's Compact Foundation is my absolute favourite foundation of the year. After trying 8 foundations in total, this one wins by a country mile. Why? Finally I have a foundation with medium to high coverage, a beautiful finish, looks natural and lasts all day. What a relief, mission accomplished, my search is over! Oh and not only does my skin look natural, all the ingredients are natural too. What more could a girl want in her foundation? Nothing I tell you, nothing. If you think of something... let me know.
Compact foundation comes in a solid form encased in a cute twist up tube making it great for travel. No hassles about breaking glass bottles, and no waste from pouring too much onto your hand.
|Couleur Caramel Compact Foundation|
in 12 Light Beige and 14 Golden Beige
There's 5 shades to choose from. Initially I bought the lower shade swatched here, Golden Beige. Obviously not my best colour matching effort for the year haha. Oh well, I use it for contouring. The top shade is Light Beige which is perfect for my skin tone. It's warm, but not too yellow, not at all pink and really quite radiant. It's actually a very pretty colour.
Compact Foundation application is incredibly quick. It's going to sound weird, but I apply it directly to my face like a kid with a glue stick. I start by drawing on three lines like cat whiskers. Who said foundation can't be fun? Then I'll just do a streak on the other parts of my face, grab my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, and buff it into my skin. While the coverage is higher than average, if I want to add more to problem areas, I swipe my brush over the foundation stick, and pat it on my skin until I have the coverage I need.
Wear time is amazing, comparable to Revlon Colorstay
Natural finish. Not too matte, as long as you moisturise first
Improves the appearance of pores and fine lines
Great shine control
Fast and easy application
Compact and no glass, great for travel
No pouring means no waste at all
100% natural ingredients
Twist up tube can be a bit dodgy, mine is loose in the tube but goes up and down fine
No SPF although that makes it great for photos. I have SPF in my moisturiser anyway
High end price but if you're a blogger, right now you can become a beauty ambassador, and get it at half off bringing it to down to drugstore price
Overall I'm so pleased to find a product that ticks all of the boxes for a foundation. Couleur Caramel Compact Foundation is my Foundation of the year!
Note: I purchased my Couleur Caramel Compact Foundation from Love Organic Beauty. As a beauty blogger I was able to buy mine half off as part of the beauty ambassador program. All opinions are my own.
