BEAUTY WITH BENEFITS

I was really excited to see this foundation come out! I bought "B", which looks a lot like the Maybelline Dream Cream Mousse foundation--which I have not tried. The packaging looks very similar to my Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse. The texture is very creamy and you can really play with the coverage. Here's my shade!

There are a lot of shades to select from, 12 in all. Though I think AVON is neglecting darker skin tones. Booo!! But I hear that is common with cosmetic companies--which is really too bad!
My most favorite way of applying foundation recently is with my Sigma flat top kabuki brush! LOVE!


It is the perfect size to dip into this pot! I just tap it in there a few times and it picks up the perfect amount.


I'm not wearing too much here, I'd say light to medium coverage. As much as I like this, I still have to reach for concealer for under my eyes. I find that this foundation will last me through a work day, but not one of those horrendous 11 days I've had recently. I notice that it seems to wear off mostly in my t-zone, which is generally not oily, so I'm not sure what is making it come off. Anyhow, this will be available from your AVON rep soon, will be around $9 when it first comes out then will be about $12 after. You can always shop my online AVON store if you are in the US and orders over $30 ship free!

Don't forget to enter my Mary Kay give-a-way!
