There’s something quite fascinating about a company whose motto is “Beauty made simple” that actually adheres to that motto. Beauty Addicts is a cosmetic company that has been around for quite a while yet they don’t have a million items. They keep it simple by creating ONE foundation, one tinted moisturizer, one concealer. Their goal isn’t to flood the market but to improve the market.
Technically Beauty Addicts Face2Face Foundation is a crème to powder foundation. I say technically because it never becomes powdery. Instead it gives me a soft slightly dewy appearance. There’s nothing dry or chalky about it. It’s a lightweight formula even though Beauty Addicts says that it’s full coverage. I find that the coverage is more medium than full though I can build it up.
Beauty Addicts Face2Face Foundation comes in 7 shades. I was sent Shades 01 and 02 to test. I probably can wear them both well on my fair (MAC NW15) skin but as soon as I applied Shade 01 I was sold. It’s a great match for my neutral to cool toned skin. Shade 02 would be great for people who have warmer undertones than I do (MAC NC15-20).
While it comes with a sponge, the magic for me is when applying it with a foundation brush. I have tried it with a variety of brushes but almost always go for the Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush. It picks up the perfect amount of foundation and blends it seamlessly on my skin. The sponge is great if you carry the foundation around since it fits in the compact perfectly.
Even though I haven’t worn Beauty Addicts crème foundation in hot weather, it has survived cold, cool, windy and warm weather. It’s even stood up to a few hot flashes. Face2Face Foundation contains Vitamin A and E plus Green Tea in order to soothe and protect. It also has Dermaxyl for hydration and something called Advanced Microsphere Technology to help diminish the look of fine lines. All in all I’d say that Beauty Addicts Face2Face Crème to Powder Foundation has surpassed all my expectations of it. I’m truly enjoying wearing this foundation every day.
