Dry Skin. Oily Skin. Normal Skin. Combination Skin. Each skin type offers its own challenges, especially when it comes to choosing a foundation.
As someone with dry skin, I need my foundation to hydrate my skin, not stick to dry patches, and provide me with a nice healthy glow. I’m not into heavy coverage. So, I gravitate towards natural/light or medium coverage. I want my skin to look like my skin, only better; ideally flawless.
Like most people with dry skin, I gave up using powder foundation a long time ago. My dry skin can’t handle it. Now the only powder I use is blush, highlighter, and bronzer. And if my foundation isn’t hydrating enough, even those products can look patchy.
When I was first offered the chance to try the new Mally 4K Ultra HD Fantasy Foundation I hesitated. Although I’m a fan of Mally Beauty, and own many of her products, this was a powder foundation after all. But as I read the product description, I couldn’t deny my curiosity.
The Mally 4K Ultra HD Fantasy Foundation checked off so many of my boxes for what I want in a foundation. First, it provides natural-looking coverage. Secondly, it’s formulated with aloe leaf extract and coconut oil, which means it provides hydration, evens skin tone and gives that glow I love. And bonus, it’s designed to melt into your skin.
Available in five shades, from Fair to Rich, it’s ideal for us pale girls, as well as those with darker skin tones. As usual, I chose the lightest shade available. At first glance, I appreciated how Fair wasn’t too pink or too yellow. It actually matched my skin tone pretty well.
Next came the ultimate test. Would the Mally 4K Ultra HD Fantasy Foundation actually blend into my dry skin. Would it accentuate my pores? And how would it wear throughout the day?
Because the foundation is very finely milled it blends in like a dream. It’s so creamy and light. My skin looked like my skin, only with a more flawless radiance. While it provides a natural coverage, I had no problem building it up in areas that need more coverage.
The foundation didn’t irritate my skin or causing itching, which sometimes happens with my dry, sensitive skin. The wear time is also impressive. I first tried it out for my bday celebration and it looked great, even after a few cocktails. It also lived up to the ridiculous 90+ degree temperatures we’ve been having all summer long.
I have to say, I’m excited to add the Mally 4K Ultra HD Fantasy Foundation, available at QVC, to my foundation collection. I can’t believe this dry skin girl has finally found a powder foundation that performs so beautifully on my skin.
