Okay, so I know I literally just reviewed a foundation last week, but I just had to post about this sooner rather than later, because I think I found my new favourite drugstore foundation. And it’s from Burt’s Bees of all brands.
So apparently, the skincare and lip balm brand released a series of makeup items not so long ago that includes a full range of products made from natural ingredients. I was sent their foundation for a photo on Instagram (not even by the brand might I add), and since I had it lying around anyways, I thought I would give it a try. After one wear, I was seriously impressed.
The Goodness Glows Liquid Makeup is a full-coverage mineral foundation that leaves skin smoother and more radiant, with a natural, glowy finish. Made with Meadowfoam Seed Oil, which is known to moisturize, this 98.9 per cent natural moisturizing foundation hydrates and nourishes skin, while giving you all-day wear. Available in 12 shades to match a variety of different skin tones, this is perfect for dry or combination skin.
I was sent 1025 Natural Beige, which is a touch too tan for my white winter skin, but I still managed to make it work. This is definitely a full-coverage foundation, but best of all, it makes your skin look luminous and smooth. After one use of this I noticed how radiant my complexion looked. After the second wear, I had friends commenting on which brand I was using.
Needless to say, this stuff is awesome. I love the fact that it’s mineral, which usually isn’t that much of a selling factor for me personally, but with that being said, if I’m able to put good stuff on my skin, I’m all for it. Also, natural makeup is definitely what people are looking for right now, and this foundation is formulated without parabens, phthalates, SLS, petrolatum or synthetic fragrances.
Now with so many positives, there must be something negative right? Well the only downside to this product that I can think of is the price. I can’t really seem to find any Canadian retailers who have this online just yet (not sure when the makeup line officially launches, or if it has launched already), however, it looks like it’s retailing for C$19.99 on the Burt’s Bees site, which is quite pricey for a drugstore foundation. With that being said, it was actually Walmart who sent me the product, so they will be getting it in stock (if they don’t have it at your local Walmart already), and they are traditionally affordable with their prices.
Still though, this is an amazing foundation, and I highly recommend it if you can find it.
Please note, I received this product for review. All opinions are my own.
