C.Y.O Foundation and Pressed Powder Review

Last time I popped into Boots, I noticed a C.Y.O stand and I was very intrigued by it. I’d never heard of the brand before and I loved the packaging of their products: so clean and minimal. I picked up the foundation to try out, as I was in need of a new foundation anyway and you got a free pressed powder with it(I think there was a deal on). I’ve used the foundation a few times now, so I thought I’d do an in-depth review on how I’m finding the products. Let me know if you have ever tried any products for C.Y.O and, if so, what are you thoughts on it?DSC_0776

Packaging –

As I mentioned previously, I LOVE the packaging for these two products. It is very clean and minimal, and it also allows you to see the clear shade of the foundation. The pump applicator for the foundation is very easy to use, and gives you the perfect amount of foundation needed to cover your face. I like that the pressed powder comes with a mirror and an applicator. It is especially handy for using on-the-go. DSC_0791

Foundation –

Price – £7.50

Shade – 102

Review – This foundation is very easy to apply, I simply used a Real Techniques buffing brush and blended it into my face. This foundation is quite low coverage, which I’m not the biggest fan of, because it means that I have to apply quite a lot of it before I’m satisfied with how it looks. I think this foundation is good for if you want a natural makeup look, and don’t want to fully cover all your blemishes and spots. It is very lightweight which I like, it literally feels like you’ve got no foundation on. Overall, I probably wouldn’t repurchase this product however I’ll be using this on a clearer-skin day if I want some light coverage.

Matte Pressed Powder –

Price – £4.00

Shade – Fair

Review – This is perfect for sweeping over your foundation and concealer for a matter finish and to really set your makeup in place. I applied this using a big powder brush and although I had to use a few strokes until I was satisfied with how it looked, I was overall really happy with this powder. It adds a lovely matte finish to my makeup look and I also found that my makeup lasted a bit longer with this on top. I will definitely be repurchasing this, especially as it is so affordable.
