Street Wear Color Rich Foundation Beige Review
Packaging: The new Street Wear foundation comes with a colorful girly packaging. The foundation bottle comes in a simple cylindrical packaging with a matte black cap. However, the packaging is not travel friendly as the bottle is made of glass which is prone to easy breakage and it also doesn’t come with any pump or dispenser. It makes it really difficult to take a small amount of product as the foundation has to be poured onto your hands for application. It spills around the nozzle and creates a lot of mess! I wished the packaging was better.
Price: Rs 170 for 30 ml (Buy online at Beauty Shop India here)
Shade: The foundation is available in 3 shades. I bought the shade Beige which matches my Mac Nc 43.5 skin tone almost perfectly. The shade beige has good yellow undertones so it will suit duskier and darker skin tones well. The other two shades have pink undertones which can possibly work on fairer complexions.
Formula: Street Wear Color Rich Foundation doesn’t look cakey or streaky. The foundation has very runny consistency which makes it easy to apply and blend perfectly into the skin with a help of fingers, brush or a sponge. It gives a semi-matte finish which makes skin appear dewy and healthy. Though it provides a dewy finish, it doesn’t make my skin very oily or greasy. But, I recommend combination and oily skinned girls to set the foundation with a compact powder to keep your t-zone shine-free. The foundation feels moisturizing and will work really well on dry skin types. It did not cause breakouts on my combination skin. It feels light weight and comfortable. The formula transfers easily and also tends to oxidize on my skin after some 2 to 3 hours of application.
Coverage/Pigmentation: The foundation provides light to medium coverage after layering it. It evens out very light blemishes, pigmentation and redness on my skin. The additional layer gives a little more of even look to the skin thereby making skin appear polished. But, if you have deep dark spots, pimple marks or dark circles you would definitely require a concealer to get an even base.
Staying Power: The foundation stays for good 4 to 5 hours and starts fading after that. As the formula has an emollient quality, my t zone turns oily after some 3 hours. So, if you have combination and oily skin you will require powder touch ups to keep skin fresh and shine-free.
Final words: It is an average foundation which works quite decently for the price. A good budget pick for dry skin as you can pull it off easily for its moisturizing formula. The drawback to this product is the shade range, there are only 3 shades available and everyone can’t really find their exact match. It does oxidize and also makes my combination skin shiny after a few hours of application. Definitely not a must-try product but you can give it a try if you are looking for a natural looking light weight foundation.
