The Foundation Files: Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation

So I have had another couple of foundations arrive on my doorstep so I thought it was only fitting to do another Foundation Files post! So welcome back to another Foundation Files! Let's get into it.

Before we start, I just wanted to give you a little overview of what you can expect from all of my Foundation Files posts (if you've read a Foundation Files before, you can probably skip this, unless you need a little recap). In each review I will give you photos of my skin before application, immediately after application and at the end of the day. I will talk about how I prep my skin before applying, as well as the method that I use to apply. I will also talk about the coverage and finish, as well as how well I think it wears throughout the day. Now as for my skin type (which will impact what I think of foundations) I have dry/normal skin. I do have blemish and pigmentation concerns, particularly in my T-Zone. Without further adieu, let's get into it!   

Today I am going to talk about the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation*. Ooh Fabulous, your online destination for cruelty free make up, kindly sent me this foundation to try out. If you are not from Australia, what you might not know is that Wet n Wild products aren't easy to get in Australia. I am yet to come across somewhere that it is easy to buy Wet N Wild. I was very excited when I discovered that Ooh Fabulous actually stocks Wet N Wild products. 

Create the best looking skin of your life with the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation. This foundation has been meticulously tested under 7 different lighting conditions, with & without flash to make sure your skin will look photo ready & flawless regardless of the environment! This breakthrough formula features a light adjusting complex to help prevent white cast in photos. Always put your best face forward with this amazing foundation!

That is what Wet N Wild claims their Photo Focus Foundation can do. It is designed to be the perfect foundation for any situation that you might need to have photos taken, or you just want flawless skin. 

The foundation comes in 20 different shades and caters to quite a few different shades. There are heaps of lighter shades to cater to the pale skin girls and a few shades on the darker end of the spectrum too. I have both Porcelain (the lightest shade) and Soft Ivory (second lightest). I find Soft Ivory works perfectly for my skin at the moment.

The foundation comes with a spatula to get the product out of the bottle. It is an interesting design. If you have blemished or acne prone skin I would recommend not using the spatula to apply product to your face (as it will spread the bad bacteria) and either still put the product on the back of your hand, on a beauty blender or a brush. I apply and blend into the skin with my beauty blender. The consistency is really light and blends into the skin. I would say it is a medium coverage. It is lightweight and feels like you have nothing on your skin at all, but it helps to even out skin tone and cover blemishes easily. It is a matte finish, but doesn't look dry on drier skin types, though if you are worried about dryness, I would suggest using a hydrating or illuminating primer. 

As for longevity, I found it lasted quite well. On the particular day that I tested it out for this post it was cold and wet and it lasted well. I applied it in the morning before going to run some errands. I then did some gardening outside and had a bit of melt down after locking us out of the house. So after being out in the rain, sweating while gardening and crying, the foundation still looked pretty good. There were a few creases on my forehead and it had worn off a little around my eyes (understandably) and also around my chin. All in all, my skin still looked good and it wasn't extremely noticeable that there were some patches starting to wear off. 

  All in all I am quite impressed with this foundation. While I do wish it had a pump, I was really impressed with how my skin looked with it on and how it lasted (through all of the hardships of the weekend). It didn't go too oily over the day either, but looked natural and healthy. For $15, this foundation is affordable and works really well. It will definitely be staying in my rotation for the time being!
