My foundation favourite for the last few years has been Estée Lauder Double Wear. It really suits my sensitive skin and I love how it lasts all day.
But, I wanted to try something new to see if there was a foundation which was even better. So, after doing some research, I chose Armani Power Fabric.
It’s a full coverage foundation – tick, SPF 25 – tick, long wearing – tick and it had great reviews – tick. It seemed perfect for me.
At £42 its an expensive foundation but it seemed worth the price tag. I also had to pay for shipping because nobody stocks this where I live.
I was really pleased when it arrived because the shade was perfect for me and you know chosing a foundation shade online is risky.
The packaging is beautiful. It’s a glass bottle with a pump to disperse the foundation which is something I really wish Estée Lauder would add to the double wear foundation.
The foundation is a thinner consistency than double wear but first impressions were good.
That’s where the good things end with this foundation though unfortunately.
First of all I found this really difficult to blend. It moves around your skin rather than sinking in. When applied with a brush, I couldn’t get rid of the brush strokes. When applied with a sponge it was patchy and still wouldn’t blend in.
After a few hours of wearing this it started to separate on my skin and became all patchy. Also, I don’t have oily skin but by the end of the day my face look so oily it was disgusting!!
I persevered with this trying different ways of making it work like, changing my primer, mixing the foundation with a CC serum, applying more, applying less. Nothing worked.
Then, after using it for three days my skin started to break out in spots.
This is probably the worst foundation I have ever used. I am sure it suits some people but it really did not agree with my skin.
I am really disappointed because I had read such great reviews and it cost so much money. I am now back using double wear and my spots are slowly fading.
