I was excited to receive this foundation kit from Serious Skin Care. I was not sure what color to buy. I'm an NC40 but I have reddish cheeks (sensitive skin) and yellow undertones. I can wear different foundation colors but I have to try them on and see how the wear throughout the day. I apologize for the pictures. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COLORS MIGHT BE A LITTLE OFF THIS CAN BE DUE TO YOUR COMPUTER MONITOR AND THE LIGHTING THAT I USED TO TAKE THE PICS. It's raining in Sunny CA and I wanted to get this up so that you can can compare colors if you are torn between the medium and tan kit. I will put better pics up once it stops raining. I applied this kit after moisturizing and using primer on my skin which I think makes a HUGE difference on color payoff and texture. Plus remember you can always buy this kit and return it if you don't like it. Everyone's skin, texture and color is different so what may work for you may not work on someone else.
I received the medium kit first. I was glad to see the powder foundation had yellow undertones. I would describe it as medium with yellow undertones. The powder is pretty finely milled and I can see wearing this powder without the liquid foundation. Next I opened the liquid foundation which also have yellow undertones. It is truly a medium color but with yellow undertones. The concealer stick is light and is very creamy and I say light and medium tones would be able to use this concealer. The coverage is good and buildable.
The Tan kit. The Powder foundation is Tan but I would describe it as a true beige color. While the medium had a yellow undertone the Tan has a slight peachy undertone but is true to being beige. People with tan or olive complexion can wear this powder foundation. The foundation in Tan has definitely a peach undertone to it. The concealer is beige and is darker than the light with beige undertones.
Review:I wore the medium kit yesterday and I have to say I really like the whole kit. The foundation glides on easily and covers well without having to apply a lot of product. I used a regular foundation sponge. The concealer is very creamy and was OK on my under eye circles. I still have to put on Eve Pearl peach corrector over it. BTW (Eve Pearl Peach corrector ROCKS I will never be without it, a little expensive but a little goes a long way and it really does cover, I might review it if people really want me too and take pics of it too) Anyway, my favorite of the whole kit was the medium third dimension powder. It sets the liquid foundation and makes the look flawless. I have to say that I used the concealer like Jen applied it over the eyelid and sadly because I have oily lids I can't rely on just that I have to wear UDPP. The precision powder is really finely milled, Jen was not lying on that description. I can compare it almost to SSC ProLucent Sheer Matte Pressed Powder which I have and keep in my purse for touch ups. I really like it for the oily areas of my skin really does the job. I did not use the precision powder to set my concealer maybe I'll try doing that when I try the Tan kit.
Overall the KIT is an excellent value and just the powder foundation alone is worth the whole price of the kit. I'll post again once I have had a chance to put the tan kit.
Did you guys like it??? What did you not like about it? What would you change? Would you keep at least one item?? I want to know your thoughts??
Oh and these DO NOT have the rose scent that the ProMinerals does. I was not paid by SSC to review these kits.
