Kat Von D: True Portrait Foundation Review

The new Kat Von D True Portrait Foundation can best be describe as Light as a feather, truly it is! I used to be a die hard full coverage foundation fan but as my skin is maturing I find most full-coverage formulas uncomfortably sit on my face, back then I layered on my foundation like I was putting butter on toast! So the older I get the more breathable and light weight I like my makeup to feel and that’s exactly what I found when I purchased this foundation.

Just the other day after a grocery run I ended up taking a nap and comfortably slept forgetting I had the True Portrait foundation on! so I say it’s cat-nap approved (haha)

The formula is oily upon applying it however it is buildable and dries down to a powder finish, I usually get my desired consistency after two layers without getting caked. While you can let it set on it’s own as is you can also finish it off with a pressed powder (for a fuller finish) or a loose setting powder.

I went for a soft-neutral look with my makeup using the True Portrait Foundation, KVD Tattoo Liner, and Colourpop eyeshadows in ‘wattles’ and ‘wake up call’

Wet N Wild Color Icon Review

I love how affordable Color Icon Eyeshadows are by Wet N Wild. I had the old formula of “Walking On Egg Shells” when it was just a trio. Now reformulated as a quad Wet N Wild added a matte transition shade which blends well, it practically matches my skin tone.

This is my simple everyday eyeshadow quad for daytime looks. With the exception of the nude transition shade the other 3 (browbone, crease and eye lid shadows) are mostly shimmer. I love how they are labeled which adds a helpful guide to the consumer as to where to apply each color although you can use them however you’d like! I personally like to also use the shimmer shades for highlighting the bridge of my nose, and qupids bow.

Pros

Affordable

Multi purpose

Easily blendable

Cruelty Free

Vegan

Cons

none

Overall Rating: 4.9/5

Considering this is my second time purchasing I would say I am quite the fan and for $2.99 it’s got a great price point, the colors are great for creating a everyday look and easy to take when traveling, no need to pack a big eyeshadow palette. Other than being stoked on the price I also like how easy these apply and blend together.

I am not too sure if this specific eyeshadow quad will accommodate all skin tones however they do have 5 other quads with different shades.

Have you tried any Wet n Wild products? I would love to hear your recommendations!
