Face Atalier Foundation Review

Ahhh...finally a foundation that STAYS ON, and goes on so smooth it blends like butta. But how do I decide what shades to invest in for my kit? I like to consolidate and mix, so I ordered a whole bunch of samples before I order from the Canadian company ( free shipping over $150.00 / also available from free shipping over $60.00 )

The lightest looks pink to my eye, and the darkest is not NEAR as dark as I'd like... but overall, I'm more than happy with the consistancy and coverage of this foundation.

From the web-site: The heart and soul of FACE atelier – an innovative approach to foundation that allows you to be in control. Ultra Foundation is a silicone-based emulsion that floats on top of the skin, doesn’t crease or flake, and lasts all day long. Hydrating yet oil-free, it obscures tiny lines and pores to ensure a smooth finish.

Got those “I can never find my shade” foundation blues? Only FACE atelier allows you to infinitely adjust your foundation shade. Add a drop of Zero Plus to go a shade darker, or a splash of Zero Minus to lighten.

The silicone molecule is bigger than the human pore, allowing Ultra Foundation to form a lightweight, breathable second skin that is both moisture and oil resistant. It is truly non-comedogenic and is ideal for troubled or mature skin.

Ultra Foundation's sophisticated formulation creates an optical blurring effect that diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and gives the illusion of a smoother, more uniform and naturally dewy finish. No wonder it's the foundation of choice for stars like Fergie and Lady Gaga!

· apply with #4 foundation brush to ensure smooth and hygienic application; and remember that a little goes a long way

· Ultra Foundation is ideal if you're having your picture taken as products with sunscreen will flash white (and cosmetics with sunscreen don't protect you from very much at all - find a good sunscreen, and use it as directed)

· mix with your face cream to create your very own custom tinted moisturizer

· use Ultra Foundation #Zero Minus before applying foundation to highlight and contour

Oil Free. Fragrance Free. Non-Comedogenic.
