Depending on how you use this colour base, the pigmentation can vary from very light coverage all the way up to full coverage
Lighter coverage/pigmentation can be achieved by mixing this with moisturiser, and heavier pigmentation can be achieved by applying it straight.
Ease of application:
As Makeup Utopia’s yardstick measure for “Foolproof Makeup”, I can confidently say that I am not fazed when applying this product. I thought it would be hard, but it’s pretty simple:
Mix it with moisturiser for an everyday, light coverage (I use the back of my hand as a mixing palette) then apply it with your fingers. I experimented with mixing the colour base together with my primer (if I can cut down on time for my morning makeup routine, I will) but no dice. Primer first, then apply as above.
Also, use a concealer brush when applying this as a concealer. I tried doing this with my fingers and it was not at all effective.
Over a primer, this lasts well enough for me to get through my work day without any hassle.
This Colour Supplement comes in a teeny tiny 20g glass pot with a plastic screw-on lid.
I’m not such a huge fan of the use of a pot design for storage. A squeezy tube would have been more hygienic and made it easier to dispense the correct amount of product. Also, a screw-on lid like this does make me nervous about putting it in my handbag in case of a pot-coming-open related disaster.
Anything else worth mentioning?:
I’ve considered the price point of this base colour and weighed it up in my mind – at $17.95 it’s not the cheapest foundation product out there. BUT it’s not just a foundation – it’s a concealer and can act as a tinted moisturiser as well. If I was going to buy one of each of those products separately, it would be costing me a lot more than this product does alone, and it does all of these things!
Combine that with the fact that a little of this base colour goes a very long way and you’ve actually got some amazing value!
This product is also a massive win for any Vegan makeup lovers out there – it’s completely cruelty-free and contains no animal products.
What they say:
Light Pink is one of our lightest supplements. It can be blended with any of the others to create the right tint for you. This one is suited to people with pale or pink complexions. It’s made with soya and rice bran oils to care for all skin types. Just mix into your favourite moisturiser for a natural tint or use on its own as a foundation. You can also dot a little around unsightly blemishes for effective coverage.
I love this. It’s great value, multi-purpose and cruelty-free.
The only thing stopping me from stating this as a HG product is the packaging – but if you’re not the type to carry your foundation or concealer around in a handbag, you’re good to go!
