Constance caroll’s lasting matt foundation reveiw & swatches

This is going to be a review of constance caroll’s lasting matt foundation. This was the first foundation that i tried when i started off with makeup. It’s a really cheap foundation and back then was the only one that has a variety of shades. I came across this in my local beauty store in srilanka. This it costs around 400 srilankan rupees. Constance carol is a uk based cosmetic brand selling cosmetics at a very cheap price.

What constance carol claims
Fresh, flawless matt coverage with up to 12 hour wear.
Mineral enriched formula leaves skin feeling great and looking fresh.
All day shine control.

My experience with it
Back then this was great for me. I did have issue finding my best match as i didn’t know facts like the undertones etc. Somehow throughout the days of wear, i have realised that it didn’t do justice for my skin. I definitely did make my face oily (specially my T zone). It is a sheer coverage foundation and not buildable as well.
The foundation doesn’t last long as well. The maximum amount of time it would last is for 4 hours maximum. but y the end of that 4 hrs you will definitely find that your foundation will e melting off. If you have oily skin I would definitely no recommend this to you! It’s a definite NO. But if you do have dry skin you should try this out J
This foundation has a chemical scent which might sometimes drive you crazy but it doesn’t last long for it to e a major issue. I would also recommend that you set your foundation with powder if you have oily combination skin.

How i apply it
I use a damp sponge preferably a cosmetic sponge to apply it. Since it’s a sheer coverage, using a foundation brush would give you streaks as the formula isn’t thick.

Summary of my opinions
  • Good for beginners
  • Great for dry skin

  • Makes you oily really quickly
  • Foundation does oxidize pretty quickly
  • Doesn’t last long

I wouldn’t definitely recommend this foundation. This foundation claims to e a matt foundation but its worse than a normal one. If you are a beginner, i would recommend you try the Revlon colourstay foundation review here. It’s not worth your money!

Hope this helped you decide your purchase :)
