Earlier this week, I hopped on a video call with one of my coworkers, and the first thing she said to me was, "You look really good." At that point I was ready to X out of the call and start writing my review for the newI had been testing immediately, but just to be sure, I decided to give it at least a few days. Well, it's been a few days, and I'm ready to shout from the rooftop about my new favorite makeup product, ($7).
The recent rise in Asian American hate crimes could have impacts beyond the pandemic
Without a reliable database, it’s difficult to tackle the aftermath across immigrant communities.In the months following the outbreak, Asian Americans faced more than 2,100 incidents reported nationwide between March and June, according to nonprofit advocacy group Stop AAPI Hate. On April 5, a woman survived an acid attack while taking out the trash in Brooklyn, New York. On June 9, an attacker threw a glass bottle at a woman strapping her child into a car seat in San Francisco while yelling out a racial slur. Later that week, in Santa Clara, California, another assailant kicked a woman’s dog, yelling, “Take your disease that’s ruining our country and go home.
I am a big fan of, and I use a few from the line regularly. I am not, on the other hand, a big fan of foundation. I typically stick to or something with lighter coverage. Still, the name "serum foundation" sounded promising to me, and because I've had great success with The Ordinary in the past, I was excited to see if its makeup was as good as its skin care.
Before applying it for the first time, I prepped with an, , and my favorite . I didn't use anything extra to bump hydration because I wanted to see if the foundation would settle into fine lines or accentuate any dry patches. My skin is typically very dry, so I wanted to really put this foundation to the test. I applied the product with a foundation brush, then I blended it out with a damp beauty blender.

Sales have spiked 500 percent since March.

I was immediately impressed with the foundation and the way it glided onto my skin. The product is very fluid, almost like water - it's extremely smooth and light. I didn't feel like I had a second layer on my skin; it honestly felt weightless. It offered a medium coverage, but I had a few zits I was able to hide without using an added. I personally like my face makeup to be really light, to the point where you can still see some of my freckles. This did a great job of that, while still covering up any redness and evening out my overall skin tone.
I have dry skin, but I didn't notice any issues with texture or dry patches. The foundation is very long lasting, and it wears well throughout the day. I had a call with my mom after work the first day I tried it at around 7 p.m. and she mentioned that my skin looked great. (Full transparency, my mom always thinks I look great, but I definitely think this new foundation had something to do with it.)
I'm also acne-prone, and I haven't noticed any issues with my skin when it comes to breakouts either. I typically like to wash my face makeup off as soon as possible to avoid clogging my pores, but I legitimately forgot I was wearing this by the end of the day. I love how natural this foundation looked while still managing to offer the coverage I was looking for without leaving my face feeling heavy with product.
The fact that I could wear this all day without feeling like I had makeup on makes this an automatic win for me. I haven't found a makeup product I've loved as much as this foundation in years. This is my new go-to foundation, and for less than $7, I'm telling everyone I know it should be theirs, too.
