In one corner coming in at 30ml is Calvin Klein 3-in-1 foundation and a little disclaimer good luck finding this product I just thought it would be fun to contact a makeup archive and see if they had some cool products they would want to send me that..well…could still be used and I was shocked at what was sent. Almost every shade of when CK tried to launch into the beauty market a little unsuccessful but I don’t see why that’s the case with this foundation it’s absolutely flawless and perfect for all seasons.
The packaging is pretty cool. You guys know that I am a sucker for sleek and sexy packaging, and CK One delivers! The design is modern, minimalistic, and sculptural. Get into the pill shape bottle. The packaging does a great job of being travel-friendly. Not only is the pump concealed by a lid, it also has a spin-lock, so that you won’t accidentally dispense foundation if you happen to lose the lid. The cut-out window on the side of the bottle is a nice touch as well.
The CK one 3-in-1 face makeup is a hybrid formula designed to reveal your authentic, real beauty, never hiding it. the ck one 3-in-1 face makeup offers a simplified approach to beauty that is designed for all ages, cultures and genders. The science behind the ck one 3-in-1 face makeup is what makes the multi-benefits of this product possible. Industry leading, japanese triple-treated pigment technology creates a natural look on the skin, while still delivering flawless, even coverage. the distinctive formula synthesizes serum, primer and face makeup into one simple, lightweight liquid. Treated pigment technology with amino acid mimics the skin for an effortlessly natural, radiant finish. Advance silicone technology provides long wear, formula integrity, and smooth application. Microspheric powder creates a smooth, creamy texture and the light diffusing properties result in a soft focus effect on skin to minimize the look of wrinkles.
The CK one 3-in-1 face makeup blends flawlessly into skin, evening out the skin’s tone without the heavy feeling of traditional foundations. a built-in primer provides shine control and long wear for up to 11 hours. a serum, infused with SPF protection and nourishing vitamins, helps prevent against the damaging effects of UV rays and free radicals. Available in eight (8) different shades, each shade of the CK one 3-in-1 face makeup works on a range of three different skin tones.
The foundation truly is beautiful. It is marketed as a liquid, but I find its texture to be somewhere between a liquid and a soft gel. It’s very smooth and glides across the skin, filling pores and fine lines very nicely. I really liked this foundation. I like the fact that it really lives up to its claim of being a second skin. I also like how neutral the undertone is. This really gives flexibility with the shades. Sometimes, foundation can be too yellow or too pink, which poses a problem. This product has a neutral undertone, which allows me to mix in liquid correctors to add in a yellow or pink undertone if I need it. Overall, the foundation held up beautifully for the duration of this job. I didn’t have to do any touchups, not even once also it will not clog your pores which is always nice and always something that I look for.
IF you do want to search to buy this you beauty you will be able to do so – but just make sure you check out my swatches page to try to color match yourself if buying from eBay or Amazon.
KNOCK OUT 🙅🏻♂️
NEXT coming in at 30ml is NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation which for a good two years IF I used foundation I would go to this one during the summer for it’s ability to stay put and keep your skin looking very healthy and well kept. It also has a lot skin loving ingredients which I love!
It’s full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough formula builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop – the result of exclusive innovation uniquely designed to deliver long-wearing full coverage, weightlessly – I’ve said so much in the past and on my blog that I love that NARS is true to advertising, everything you read you will get from a NARS product.
First-to-market treated pigments weightlessly deliver long-wearing, complete coverage without ever masking for perfected, natural-looking skin.
Streamlined packaging with easy-lift cap and a beautiful frosted bottle the packaging is definitely unique and seems it could be on the mans side of the skin.
They came out with Even Tone Technology designed to instantly neutralize redness and dullness, while working long-term to reduce the appearance of discoloration for more even, uniform skin. So you might be wondering how they do this and really it’s simple gold and green pigments in a perfect 4-to-1 ratio optically manipulate how light reflects off skin’s surface, evening the complexion for instant luminosity. Green pigments negate redness on contact, while gold combats dullness. So they have found a way to add color correctors for ALL skin tones into their foundation and they are the first company to do so. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation earned one of my highest rating due to its excellent shade range and unique, irritant-free formula that allows for a natural-looking medium to full coverage, yet maintains a near weightless feel on skin.
DID YOU KNOW ➡️ NARS has been adding Scarlet Spiderling Root Extract for a long time to their products to help reduce the appearance of discoloration and reveal brighter, more even skin over time.
L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation comes in at 30ml and is one drug store foundation that I have found myself reaching for to use on clients for photoshoots and for film, the thick matte texture is perfect for full full coverage (although it’s claim is to be medium coverage) with no flash back and it doesn’t really need to be touched up very often. Once you apply it to your skin it’s going to stay exactly there. I have found that this is a stippling brush, fingers or Beautyblender you want to pat this formula into the skin not rub it because I find it is easy to streak across the face.
This high-quality formula is a standout at the drugstore. The ultralight liquid quickly dries to a believably matte finish and stays that way for at least 10 to 12 hours. I would say if you have dry skin, use a rich moisturizer and primer first and you’ll have all day flawless results.
I always have found that it’s pretty hard to match yourself perfectly in a drug store like if you’re NW15 at M•A•C you’d typically be 101 with L’Oréal – I know that looking at them all they almost all look as if they are the same shade so if you’re unsure about a shade match make sure to test it out and if testers are not available – inquir about the return policy and buy two of the foundations that you think would be close to you and if it turns out that you have to mix to create your shade well that is one of the drawbacks of buying drugstore makeup but this formula isn’t playing games – it’s on point and also oil-free, I don’t see any claims of not clogging pores but I haven’t had any issues. If you have visible pores you’ll also appreciate how well it does concealing them and creating a very smooth appearance.
PRO TIP ➡️ apply a coat of the foundation under eyes, around the nose, chin and a line across the forehead using a basic foundation brush then pat back over with the brush to remove streaks allow to dry down then apply your foundation as you would on top of that for flawless finish and coverage.
