|NYC Smooth Skin Liquid Foundation in Ivory|
I can honestly say that I was not expecting much of this foundation considering it was just under $3.00, even though my beloved NYC Smooth Skin Pressed Bronzing Powder in Sunny is one of my best drugstore finds, I was still a little doubtful of this very low priced foundation. While checking out of my local drugstore, I was still a little hesitant, but came to the conclusion that it is only $3.00, so if it let me down then I could throw it away without any guilt of knowing I spent a lot of money for it and just move onto the next one. But when applied this foundation the next morning with my Sigma F50 Duo Fiber Brush, I was amazed that this handy little bottle was just a diamond in the rough.
It just seemed to effortlessly glide onto my skin and give me the perfect semi-matte finish with medium coverage that didn't dull the complexion, but didn't make me look super oily. It felt like someone had just created a custom formulation of foundation just for my skin that didn't cling to my dry patches and didn't over-exaggerate oily areas! However, as the day went on, it didn't control my oil, so using a mattifying primer under the foundation is more ideal, but never-the-less, this foundation stood up to much more than I was expecting it to!
I was also insanely surprised that this foundation even came in a light enough color for me to try out since most drugstore foundation brands mostly cater to women with medium skintones than very light or very dark skintones like myself. With that said, there are not actually too many shades to choose from, so only those who are very fair to medium skintones may be able to wear this foundation in relation to color.
Overall, I feel like the whole NYC brand is just really stepping it up and creating some super great products at great, low price points and if you have very fair to medium skin, definitely give this foundation a try!
