My current HOLY GRAIL Foundation

You know when a product is hyped up and you sit back and think is it really all that?!
You either jump on the hype or you just leave it.
This time I jumped.. sort of. Well a month later I did haha.

I have tried a few face things from NYX before but the foundations I tried I never really could get on with. They just never lasted well or felt that nice on my skin so when everyone seemed to be raving about this new foundation I wondered would it be another fail for me.
So last week I filmed a first impressions watch it here because thats what I love doing on my channel at the min is testing products so I put the new control cover drops to the test and guys... GUYS!
It honestly is the best foundation I have tried in a long time and I haven't been this blown away by a foundation to the point where I'm actually excited to apply it to my face.

The foundation comes in 24 different shades and they range from very fair to dark which is so good because we all know the shade ranges in the drugstore are well.. shocking for people with fair skin and dark skin tones. The foundation retails for £14 which I'll say is a tad bit expensive for drugstore but it's definitely a price I don't mind paying for a foundation I love.

As the name would suggest its a control cover drop foundation meaning you control the coverage of the foundation. I am one for a full coverage and I find it to never look cakey on my skin,  for me it makes my skin look flawless and like my skin and if you want something to give you a light coverage then this foundation can give you that too. It honestly is perfect for everyone.
It has such a beautiful velvety - matte finish which I am not one for a matte finish but this is dreamy.
The lasting time is so good as well, I have combination/oily skin so my t-zone is oily within a few hours and this foundation holds up so well on my skin that I was actually shocked by how well it lasted. I love that it comes in cool, warm and neutral under tones too because again there is a shade for everyone no matter your skins undertone.

My personal favourite way to apply it is with a beauty blender I find that it works so well with the foundation and blends like a dream. I have this in 3 different shades Pale for when I'm pale, Medium Olive for when I'm not wearing a lot of fake tan and Golden for when I am freshly fake tanned. I have my shades in the neutral undertones as it works well for when I'm tanned and pale.

So thats my current HG foundation. Have you tried it?
