Beauty Review: NYC Skin Matching Foundation
On a whim, I decided to try NYC's Skin Matching Foundation. It cost $3.74, which I bought at Wal-mart. The reason...I wanted to test out a cheaper skin matching foundation to see how well it did.
Day one of wearing it, I thought, wow this isn't too bad! I liked that it actually did even out my skin tone and blended fairly well! However, day two and day three, I became unimpressed. This foundation is not oil-free, which is something I look for in a foundation because I already have oily type skin. So by the end of the second day into the third day of wearing it, my skin ended up being so shiny/oily that I felt gross. If you have combination/oily skin, I would not recommend getting a foundation that isn't oil-free, however if you have fairly dry skin, this wouldn't be a bad match.
While it isn't a bad drug store version of some of the pricier skin matching foundations, it's definitely not my favorite and I won't be using it again, unless I run out of my usual and don't have time to get more.
