・ Review + Swatches ・Essence Stay All Day 16h ( Soft Sand)








Hello everyone! Today I'm going to talk about the Essence  "Stay All Day 16h" foundation, which I've mentioned before in my March Beauty favorites post.
As I've said before I barely use foundation because I really have nothing much to cover on my face, but, when I want to try something different I love to use this one.
As all the products from essence it's really cheap only 4.99, also  the packaging is lovely and really practical to use. There are 4 differet shades of this foundation: 10 soft beige, 20 soft nude, 30 soft sand, 40 soft honey, mine is soft sand, one of the darkest shades. To be honest at first I thought this shade was going to be too dark for me so I would have ended by looking like a Ganguro (if you don't know what I'm talking about just look at this) or someone from the Jersey shore..(look at this) or just someone with an awful fake tan..but I was really surprised to find that this foundation just make me look alive (compared to how I usually look like) I LOVE the tanned look it gives to me and its coverage is awesome!
Also, since it's liquid, it doesn't dry out my skin like many other foundations.
 But.. I would not recommend a daily use of this product since the ingredients are almost all silicones..
so if you want to get it just avoid to use it everyday.
Anyway, from the picture can you see the difference? on the left (with no foundation, only waring concealer) I look like really pale while on the right (wearing the essence foundation) you can actually see that my skin looks more "peachy" (not sure what shade is that lol) Also, I have to add that It's not that long-lasting as it says but.. (it should be 16h) but you know we are talking about a "low cost" foundation so I didn't expect this much from it.
Overall, I can say I really like this foundation and I want to try another shade, maybe a light shade this time.
What about you? what do you think about it? what is your favorite foundation? comment below and let me know :) 
See you soon!

    1. Not sure about it but for oily skin it's better to avoid liquid foundations.

  17. Ohh I wish I had nothing to cover on my face, lucky you :)
    Anyways the foundations looks really natural and that is exactly what I look for in a foundation. If you hadn't posted a before picture, I never would've guessed that it isn't your natural tan. I've been using Revlon Colorstay for a while now, but lately I've been feeling like trying something lighter, so maybe I will try out Essence.
    And you are so so pretty :)
