I've battled with oily skin almost all my adult life and it's always been pretty much impossible to make my face look velvety smooth and flawless. No matter what foundation I used, my skin would inadvertently turn greasy and foundation would look cakey and uneven.
For anyone suffering the same oily skin fate, our prayers have been answered in the form of Hourglass's Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation.
At an interview with Laura Janes, Hourglass's global artistry and training director, she wowed me with this cool test:
First she rubbed some olive oil on the back of my hand, then on this super greasy patch, she buffed on the Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation with a foundation brush. A minute later, to my amazement, the skin looked perfectly matte.
That's not all. After that, she even sprayed on some water - mimicking the moisture from perspiration. She dabbed this off with a tissue and lo and behold, the foundation barely transferred onto the tissue, and the flawlessly matte finish remained perfectly intact.
Needless to say, I was eager to try this foundation for myself... on my face. For the past two weeks, The Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation was the only foundation I used.
My verdict: It totally lives up to its name, and to that simple oil-slick test. My skin has never looked better and I love that all-day velvety finish. Plus, I never have to worry about smudged foundation even when it's super hot and humid out.
This is one foundation you can count on it you have oily skin.
Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, $87, from Sephora, available in 12 shades.
