Review: You know I am all about supporting YouTubers or Beauty Bloggers that I have been following for years. This year, a brand created by eight YouTube Influencers was launched and is exclusively sold at Sally Beauty. I follow three of the eight Influencers behind this project (Lizzy, Sam and Dani) and am totally happy that they are apart of this makeup line. I picked up three things from this brand (which you will see more reviews the next few days): foundation, blush and highlighter.
As you many of you already know, I am all about the dewy foundation life so this is not a huge surprise that I picked up the Bright Spark Radiant Foundation in the shade Tan 05. It does not come in a box but in a straight up clear bottle packaging with a black plastic top. It also comes with a pump. It contains 1 fl oz of product, as most standard foundations out in the market. Now, here is my first beef with this product - it retails $14.99 online but I purchased it for $15.29 in store (plus tax). I was hoping to purchase it in store to save from shipping charges but instead the price was higher. The foundation also has a matte version - both finishes come in 10 shades which I think could be improved in the future.
The consistency appears to be thick (as seen on the product above the swatch on the photo) but once it is warmed up by the skin, it turns into a thin consistency which I love. It has a light to medium coverage, which I prefer. It has a beautiful finish - it is similar to the Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation which I also enjoy. The foundation applies easily on the skin. It works with a mattifying, cream and a silicone type of primer. It has a decent wear time - I would say an average 8hr work-day. It did not make my skin oily (I have normal skin) or break out, which is always a plus.
Would I repurchase? It is a good quality foundation but it is similar to Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth which retails for $5.99 at Target - so if you do the math, Maybelline is a better buy plus they have a better shade range. The pricing is confusing on how different it was online and in-stores. If Collab fixes all the issues mentioned, I would consider repurchasing.
