I can’t believe I haven’t written this post sooner because I absolutely love this new foundation from Surratt Beauty. I think I was suffering with a case of foundation fatigue because there have been so many new launches! But I’m back! Here’s the lowdown on the Surratt Dew Drop Foundation.

I love everything I have tried from Surratt, particularly the amazing Lid Lacquers (Hadaka is my favourite shade) and so I had high hopes. It is out now!

Before & After

So this is always my favourite part – the before and afters! Please bear in mind that Surratt recommend 2 drops but I have been using more like four.

After – Shade 3

My Review

Right! I have to come out and say this, I absolutely love this foundation. It makes my skin look so pretty without looking like makeup or at all heavy. It is on the sheer side, so if you are looking to cover blemishes you may want to skip this, or even better, couple it with a higher coverage concealer just where you need it.

I wore this when I had a massive hangover (probably shouldn’t admit this) but it just made me look fresh as a daisy and it stayed looking like that all day. Usually on days like that, I start looking really haggard at about 2pm, but it just didn’t happen with this foundation. Yay!

It seems to look more beautiful the longer I wear it, and looks just like I have naturally glowing skin, rather than great foundation. I love it.

The foundation has a very unique delivery system with a rubber button and a dropper style dispenser. It is designed to dispense the optimum amount, although I have been pressing the button a few times every time I use it.

When Does Surratt Dew Drop Foundation Launch?

This is a wonderful addition to my collection and my current go-to for everyday makeup. However, it is not cheap at £70 for just 19ml (regular foundation size is 30ml).  If you can stretch to it, and you have skin that you don’t need to cover too much, I’d say you probably wouldn’t regret it.

  1. Hi Ree

    Could you please tell us all what’s on your lips? Such a pretty orang-y coral colour?

    Many thanks,

  2. Hi Ree,

    Could you tell us if you have worn Koh Gen Do Aqua, and what shade? Or Armani Luminous, and what shade? Or MAC Face & Body, and what shade? This would be so helpful in choosing shade in Surratt Dew Foundation.

      1. Hi Ree,

        Just one more question regarding Surratt Dew Drops and shade 3…

        Can you tell us what shade you wear in Westman Atelier Vital Skin? I ask because I’m still trying to shade match the Surratt.

        Thanks once again!

  3. Oh ree! I’m hoping you can help with regards to the shades. It’s a bloody minefield for pale people buying foundation, I can’t match my skin tone exactly otherwise I look like a ghost.

    Is it one of those foundations that I’d you did to a shade up it would blend out well enough to not give a line?

    None of my easy to get to space NK stores have this foundation which is so annoying. And customer service don’t do samples. It’s a bit pricey to take a gamble!!

      1. I. Just finished using the becca luminous foundation in shade light or medium.

        Looking at swatches I think 3 or 4 might work.

        1. I think I can make 3 and 4 work – I just prefer the look of 3. It blends really easily so if you were worried about 3 being too light, perhaps 4 is the one?
