First of all, I am obsessed with liquid foundations at the moment, so I wasn’t really expecting to love this. I just really enjoy applying liquid foundation and love the juiciness it imparts on the skin, and you just never get that from a powder. That said, this is a lovely powder foundation. It applies really easily and blurs out imperfections quickly.

I didn’t apply too much under the eye area because I hate powdery products around the eyes. No matter how fine the powder, I feel it always accentuates lines, so I left that area clear.

If you like a powder foundation, I think you’ll really enjoy theBalm Photobalm. It’s so light that I think I will be using it to set my t-zone and enhance coverage after liquid foundation. It is available HERE now and currently on offer for £19.55.
