To continue my Une products saga, I decided to share with you another new product in my collection: Une’s Skin Ideal foundation. Now, I find that buying foundation is the hardest task when it comes to beauty – right after brush cleaning. It’s not easy to match the perfect colour to your complexion, to find the finish that you want depending on your skin type and getting the right amount of coverage.
Skin Ideal is a foundation that gives a youthful effect. It’s marketed for women with ageing skin. Une says that it’s a lightweight foundation and promises radiance. There are 5 shades available and I got the shade i05. I was a bit concerned at first as it looked really light in the bottle (I have light to medium skin, by the way). But it’s actually the right shade for medium skin.
It is definitely a light foundation without a lot of coverage. If you suffer from acne, I wouldn’t recommend this for you. It has a beautiful and flawless finish as it blends seamlessly into the skin. Don’t be afraid of how light it looks in the bottle. This foundation dries way darker than you skin tone. Like, way darker. However, when I apply it with a brush it has more coverage and ends up drying darker than when I apply it with fingers. Weird..
I see why this foundation is made for ageing skin. I enjoy using the most on good-skin days. Not the best foundation for covering up breakouts or acne scars.
I don’t love it. But I really like it.
