Review: New from Prestige Cosmetics is this foundation, infused with additional ‘skin-loving’ ingredients such as Ginseng, Aloe, Vitamin E, along with Sun Filters to maintain hydration and help achieve optimal skin health. I received the Skin Nude Foundation in 02 Nude Natural, which is a perfect match for my light/medium skin tone. Prestige Skin Nude Foundation is presented in a 25ml squeeze tube with a screw-top lid. It claims to be fragrance free but I noticed that it’s very lightly scented with a subtle fragrance that reminds me more of a delightful moisturiser than of a foundation. The formula has a thick, smooth, ultra creamy consistency, somewhat like a rich dessert, so just a pea-sized amount on my foundation brush was ample to perfectly even out my complexion and hide my flaws. It provides a medium to full coverage that works so well I
don’t need to use a separate concealer, yet it’s also buildable with the ability to camouflage those more prominent, unsightly imperfections. The lightweight texture, despite having exceptional coverage, means it doesn’t look caked-on or mask-like; instead the natural, dewy finish is streak-free, appearing flawlessly fresh with a healthy, radiant glow. I like how this foundation instantly transforms my skin from drab to fab!

I have naturally oily skin and despite setting the foundation with a translucent powder, I noticed that after a couple of hours, my face began to take on a slightly shiny appearance; therefore I had to rely on blotting papers or a touch-up of powder to keep any excess oil under control. Unfortunately
though, whilst it stayed on quite well in terms of coverage, I couldn’t ignore that as the hours ticked by, my skin just got oilier and oilier and I frequently had to blot or powder my face to eliminate the oil slick that kept forming. I dare say this foundation was also the contributing factor to a few new spots that I discovered soon afterwards, because generally when my skin gets that oily breakouts will always follow.

Initially, I really liked the immediate results of this foundation, but after seeing how oily it made my skin, I would suggest it’s definitely a better option for those with normal to dry skin types. I loved that it was easy to wear and felt nice on, but a more matte formulation is more suitable for my skin. I would still recommend it though, to anyone who wants a foundation with decent coverage that perfectly evens out the skin tone, but oily-skinned beauties beware, the finish is dewy and luminous and it requires constant attention to keep the shine at bay. Based on my experience I rate Prestige Cosmetics Skin Nude Foundation with 3.5 Stars out of 5.
