I got my hands on a couple if 100 Percent Pure’s NEWEST creations. Their 2nd Skin Foundation and 2nd Skin Concealer are new staples in my makeup routine! Check out my thoughts below and keep reading for an exclusive promo code!
When I heard about this 2nd Skin Foundation, I was honestly a little skeptical. A foundation that looks and feels like your own skin? Is that even possible? Apparently it is. 100 Percent Pure absolutely nailed it on this product!
What you need to know: The 2nd Skin Foundation‘s very first ingredient is olive squalene. This means two things: 1. You need to shake it up really well before using it. 2. It’s super hydrating and great for your skin. This foundation claims to look just like a second skin!
What it does: Their 2nd Skin foundation and concealer provide buildable and natural looking coverage while providing hydration and anti-aging antioxidants.
How to use it: Shake the 2nd Skin Foundation well before squirting some out (a little goes a long way, so start small). Apply evenly to your face. This foundation can be build up a little for more coverage. For the concealer, use the doe-foot applicator to apply as needed and blend.
My thoughts: When the line of 2nd Skin Foundation came out, there were even less shades than there are now. I received this foundation in the shade “Sand” but I probably could have gone a shade or two lighter. This foundation is super lightweight; I honestly forget that I am wearing it. In my experience works best and looks more natural on skin that is regularly exfoliated and not too dry. The foundation has medium to heavy coverage, depending on how much you build it up. A little of this foundation does go a long way. It has a thin, serum formula, but applies smoothly. Having sensitive, acne-prone skin, I love that this foundation is all natural and full of good ingredients. The first ingredient is super hydrating olive squalene and the next 7 after that are ALL FRUIT! How incredible is that? According to their website, the foundation and the concealer both contain the same exact ingredients (probably in different quantities so the concealer has more coverage). I got the concealer in the shade “Sand” as well and once again, I could have gone a shade or two lighter, which unfortunately didn’t exist when I ordered these but they do now! It’s not horribly dark on me, but doesn’t look as natural as it could. The coverage of the concealer is a bit more full than the foundation. As far as the formula for both products goes, I am really a fan. I don’t know how 100 Percent Pure creates such lovely, high-end makeup while keeping the ingredients as clean as can be. They really fight back at the stigma that natural makeup doesn’t work. The creators over at 100 Percent Pure are truly masterminds. I would recommend this foundation to anyone who is looking for decent coverage without the weight of a heavy foundation. It leaves a gorgeous, natural looking finish. Not too dewy, not too matte; it truly looks like your skin! I also adore these products’ packaging. The foundation comes in a beautiful frosted bottle with a rose gold top and with a dropper. The foundation comes in a sleek tube with a rose gold top and a doe-foot applicator.
Pros: Vegan, cruelty free, natural, healthy ingredients, light weight, good coverage, beautiful packaging | Cons: Pricey, only a few shades
