Victoria Secret Soft Focus Liquid Foundation Review

I can never go to the mall without visiting the Victoria Secret store, it always lures me inside. VS semi-annual sale is one event I always look forward to, I get to stock up on perfumes and lotions to keep/give away. fortunately my mom was there to remind me of my 'collection' so I just got 3 items (while she got tons - . -) anyhooows while waiting for my mom to finish shopping I discovered some cosmetics in the 75% off bin. Foundations-concealers-lipsticks-eyeshadows-liquid liners. I originally wanted to get some concealers but I couldnt find any shade in light, so I just ended up getting their foundation in light40 and one for my cousin.

So when I was rummaging in the bin all I found out there were 3 shades: light, medium, and deep. little miss me didnt notice until I got home that beside the light/medium/deep there is a number regarding the shade. (I tend to get a lot of 'ahhh!' moments) well luckily light40 was really close to my shade. When I first applied this I was checking myself in the mirror since it blended really easy and looked like I just applied moisturizer since it disappeared on my skin. The coverage was very light but is also buildable. Even after applying this 2-3x it still did not cake or look like I was wearing foundation. I was liking it until I noticed that my face looked very very dewy everywhere. blah! of course everything has a con

-> contains SPF20
-> price (I got these for $3.50 each)
-> Packaging is sleek and comes with a pump
-> feels light and moisturizing
-> Buildable without looking cakey

-> light coverage
-> very dewy
-> being discountinued?

When I looked at the Victoria Secret website I couldnt find this product anymore, so I'm thinking that this is either being discountinued or they are going to have a new formula/packaging for it? Overall I think I would be using this a lot during winter(since it is moisturizing) but not during summer.

Nice review. :) Have you tried setting it wit powder to somehow help with the dewiness?

Paige said...

thanks, I have its just that I dont really retouch my makeup during the day so it was a bother, and the heat in FL just makes the dewiness worse. -. -

these foundations seem pretty good. too bad you don't like the dewiness

you noticed~ I was having a good day the other day. thanks!

I'll add your giveaway on my sidebar too.

It is good for my dry skin, but not good with the weather here. it was on sale too for around $3 something?

3$ is such a good deal though!
