Packaging: The Faces Crème Perfection foundation comes in a round glossy black container with a silver notch. The packaging is sturdy and you don’t have to worry about breaking, so it is definitely travel-friendly. The container has a mirror inside just like other compacts and also has a compartment below for sponge. The foundation is available only in two shades 602 and 603. I picked the shade 603 which is lighter for my dusky skin tone (mac nc 43) but as I like to highlight my under eye area, forehead, nose and chin area with a lighter foundation this shade works fairly well.
Coverage: The SA told me that this foundation works as a multi-purpose product, it claims to work as a concealer, foundation and compact. The foundation provides really good coverage without feeling heavy on the skin. It provides medium to full coverage. It conceals acne scars, light blemishes and dark spots well.
Formula: The formula of the foundation is slightly thick and creamy. It provides good pigmentation with a very small amount of product. As the formula is thick, it does tend to stick to dry patches on your skin. So, you should remember to moisturize and also blend the product really well to avoid settling into fine lines and avoid a cakey finish.
Staying power: The foundation stays on my combination skin for good 5 to 6 hours easily after which it starts fading.
Pros of Faces Creme Perfection Foundation:
- Sturdy and travel-friendly packaging.
- Mineral formula.
- Fragrance is mild.
- Creamy texture.
- Long lasting.
- Light-weight on skin.
- Doesn’t break you out.
- Provides good coverage.
- Doesn’t oxidize.
Cons of Faces Creme Perfection Foundation:
- Price is slightly steep for a drugstore brand.
- Limited shade selection.
- You would have to blend the product well for a natural finish.
Final words: The Faces Creme Perfection foundation works well by providing medium to full coverage. It hides skin discolorations, pigmentation and scars well. The coverage is good but doesn’t look cakey if you have blended it well. I wished it was easier to work and was also available in deeper shades too!
