I've been a makeup addict since i could remember. In fact, when i got my first paycheck at 16, i headed straight to the MAC counter at my local mall and bought what would eventually become staples in my makeup repertoire (i'm looking at you Nylon shadow)! As the years progressed, i stocked my caboodle (i'm totally dating myself here... eeek) to the brim with makeup. One thing that never made it to my caboodle however, was foundation. This rang true for many many years! I suppose i had pretty decent skin in my 20's and therefore never really felt the need for it. Truth be told, foundation intimidated me! I never really knew exactly how to find the right shade so omitting it from my makeup routine seemed like the best thing to do. As i got older, i noticed some changes in my skin. I developed a decent amount of redness and my skin tone became overall quite noticeably uneven. So.... it was time!
The process wasn't exactly fun and it took several tries before i found a shade and formula that seemed to work for me. Fast forward to now, thanks to wonderful technology (and the beauty Gods of course), finding a great foundation or shade matching has become way easier than back in my 20's! Recently, i discovered a new way to shop for foundation that has made my shade matching situation a million times easier! MatchCo is a foundation that is customized to your exact skin tone using the corresponding app (download it here) to facilitate the process. This hyper-intelligent technology takes five skin scans, analyzes your skin tone, and then blends a perfectly matched all-in-one foundation just for you! Each bottle is personalized with your name and the date that it was created.
Once i completed my face scan using the app on my iphone, i placed my order. The foundation arrived just a few short days later and was packaged beautifully. There are many things i immediately loved. First, this bottle is customized with your name on it... i mean, if that right there doesn't make you feel special i don't know what will! Second, it's a pump which i personally feel is the most sanitary method of releasing product! Lastly, this oil-free foundation is incredibly lightweight and wears beautifully all day! I was beyond impressed with the quality and effectiveness of this product! Sure, great packaging is important, but pair that with an amazing formula and you have yourself the perfect product!
This medium coverage foundation blends like a dream. It works for all skin types. Most importantly, it's formulated with anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients like peptides, Green tea extracts and Vitamin E. It also has skin-conditioning and hydrating ingredients such as ceramides, Bisabolol (Chamomile flower) and Lilum candidum flower extract (White Lily flower). It's paraben, sulfate and phthalates free, cruelty free (phew), non-comedogenic and dermatologist reviewed. Overall, this is seriously one of the greatest technologies in makeup right now! You must give this amazing foundation a try! It's easy, fun and exciting to own a makeup product that is customized for you! Best part? It won't break the bank so download the app and step to it girlfriend! Oh and be sure to come back and tell me all about your experience! I have no doubt you'll love it as much as i have!
