- Hated: Only complaints… that there is no pump on the bottle, + that it contains Retinyl Palmitate!
- The GG’s Final Thoughts: I’ve tried wayyyyyy too many to count, and this is the most similar (natural) liquid foundation to my beloved, but toxic ex… M.A.C. Makeup! Yes, I, The GG – was a loyal M.A.C. addict for 15+ years… so changing my foundation was a HUGE step! I really love how this makes my complexion look healthy, natural, smooth, & glowy! It’s light, moisturizing, stays on all day and lasts through most nights (requires only a slight touch-up here and there). I do like a lot of coverage, so in all honesty- I’ve never really been one of those shear coverage kinda girls no matter how perfect my skin has been! To set my Liquid Foundation, I layer it with Pressed Powder Foundation which helps with staying power & avoiding raccoon eyes. My FAVE Pressed Powder is Gabriel’s Dual Powder Foundation. For those of you interested in oil-free makeup- I’ve also tried the Zuzu Luxe Oil-Free Liquid Foundation (Gabriel’s sister brand) and surprisingly didn’t like it at all! I’m in my early 30’s and felt that it made my skin look old, dry & flaky, and had much less coverage. I wanted to love it, but it just wasn’t happening for me. As far as the packaging, I totally prefer Gabriel’s glass bottle, hands-down. BUT liked the convenience and cleanliness of Zuzu’s squeezable bottle much better! My main concern with the packaging is that my brush/ sponge/ finger, etc. has to repeatedly touch the tip of the bottle when I need more (contaminating the unused portion of product, Ew). I have even gone to the extreme of purchasing several different pump caps to see if they fit on the bottle with no such luck! Grrrr. I would definitely, definitely, definitely purchase this product again because I’m truly IN LOVE! BUT I totally NEED a pump cap! Hope you’re listening Gabriel… Pretty please? Lol. Thanks for making such FAB cosmetics THAT WORK! Mwah. xo
