First time I ever opened Avon’s new Cashmere Complexion foundation (C$35), the applicator looked a little familiar.
The new foundation, which is available in a staggering 30 shades, features a big doe foot applicator — similar to Tarte’s original Shape Tape Foundation — to apply the product directly to the skin. This foundation is designed to give you cashmere-soft skin (hence the name) in a soft-focus matte finish. The vegan formula delivers comfortable wear with up to 24 hours of coverage.
The brand sent me the lightest shade (Cannoli) but looking at the press pack, I was very excited to see the wide shade range in here. They really did come out with a shade for most skin tones out there, so finding a colour that will suit your skin is super simple. Although I haven’t been wearing a ton of makeup lately, the times I did wear the foundation I did notice how nice my skin looked as it visibly blurs out pores and fine lines. The formula actually contains antioxidant botanical extracts, which will nourish your skin as you wear it.
I would bill this foundation as a good daytime one as it gives me just enough coverage to provide a nice base for the rest of my products. I like something a little more thicker for nighttime, but overall, I was happy with how this made my skin look and feel. It’s very comfortable and definitely does not feel like you’re even wearing any makeup.
Pair their new foundation with the Cashmere Complexion Long-Wear Concealer (C$25), which is available in 12 shades and is also billed to provide 24 hours of wear.
They sent me the concealer in the shade Mochi, which is the second lightest of the bunch. This concealer also features a doe-foot applicator, which is my favourite method of applying concealer in general. It gives you a nice coverage and pairs really beautifully and flawlessly with the foundation.
The concealer is also lightweight and corrects dark circles and imperfections on the skin. It also leaves your skin with a soft-focus matte finish with antioxidant botanical extracts, nourishing every area you apply it to. The concealer is vegan just like the foundation.
Overall I actually really liked these face products by Avon and found them easy and comfortable to wear. Once we start heading back to the office, I think these will be my new weekday daytime face products since they give me just the right amount of coverage while still look natural, and are very comfortable on the skin.
