Love the Foundation
I ordered a shade based on the pics and the color that arrived was unfortunately two shades darker than my skin tone. I suggest the pics of the shades include color swatching in different settings and an example of it on a person with the shade marked on the photo. I have been using it as a liquid bronzer/contour and its been amazing. The finish is beautiful and long-lasting. It doesn't oxidize and it layers beautifully with all my serums and sunscreen underneath and works well with powder that I layer on top. My skin looks like plump jelly glass skin and I love it. I am curious about buying the foundation color that matches me but I am nervous because according to the existing pics, it could be as many as 3 shades possible. This is my first time buying from this line and I am a Sephora VIB rouge and a makeup expert (on myself lol) so switching to a more natural and chemical-free brand was a top priority for me. I found this and am so happy I did but please have better pics so new customers like myself can buy a matching shade. Thank you so much for a high quality product!
Epilynx has amazing customer service! I have olive skin with yellow undertones, I tried two of the colors. Originally #3 and #4 but those were too light for me. I reached out to see what recommendations I should go for. I tried #5 and #6 and it turns out that #6 was my color!!!!! This foundation is smooth and has full coverage. I have skin sensitivities so usually it’s hard for me to find a good foundation, but this one makes me feel clean with no irritations. Again, AMAZING customer service, prompt reply and they were on top of helping me find the right foundation for me! I am including a picture where I’m wearing their eyeliner and mascara too; I use their eyeliner pen and magic volume mascara. I’m very happy with all of their products, and I cannot stress that enough. I will recommend them to all my friends!!!!
I applied the 24K gold primer as recommended and I was very pleased overall. First time using, I applied with a brush, and it went on a bit heavy in my opinion. VERY full coverage. Second time, I used a damp beauty blender and got a much smoother finish. I’m usually the lightest option, but went with #2 as a start. It’s perfect for winter and spring (I live in a cooler climate) but might be a bit light for summer and fall when I get some sun. Wearing #5 blush with it in the photo. Does rub off slightly, so if you truly want it to stay all day I’d say use a setting spray, as well. Over all very happy with the coverage, color and wear, definitely worth the price for GF cosmetics!
I got the shade 2 being Caucasian living in a low sunshine state and it matched very well! The flashback isn’t bad AT ALL which was my main concern when buying such light foundations online. It’s really good coverage I don’t have bad acne but I do have a lot of uneven coloring in my face and it clears that easily. Its a bit cakey so definitely use a small amount first to see how far it goes. I also found it actually looks better imo if you apply it with your hands since the formula is thick it helps avoid the cakey look. I’ll also want to get a powder to set it because it does rub off if you touch your face a lot like I do however I have been wearing it without it and it’s not really an issue. All in all for the price and quality and the fact that it’s a clean product I’m super happy with the money spent and I love this company a bunch! Thanks Epilynx!
