Beauty Review// Yardley Airbrush Foundation

Yardley Air brush foundation

I used to be afraid to use foundation because my skin is quiet finicky. I decided to try anyway because I loved how foundation looked on other ladies on YouTube and social media and I got some serious case of FOMO and thank goodness my skin didn’t react. Anyway, the Yardley Airbrush Foundation in Caramel Fudge was the first one that I tried and I am here with a review.

At first I thought this foundation left it quiet ashy and ghostly. I didn’t like that but I realized that I might have used too much and I needed to blend it a little bit more.  I used again once more after the all about bronze post, spend a bit longer blending and it looked quite nice. So I retract my statement of saying it is ghostly. When it comes to its finish, I give it a 4/5.

One thing about this foundation though, is that it doesn’t last. I used it once for work and by the time I got home my hormone pimple scars that don’t want to go was visible again so when it comes to longevity I will give it a 2/5


Because of the light coverage, you still need to conceal and go in again if you are trying to cover something up. So if you are looking for full coverage then this is not the foundation for you. If you are just looking for an enhancement then this will work for you. I for one prefer medium coverage. So in this for me it gets a 3/5 because I manage to make it work.

Over all I would rate this product a 3/5


Would I repurchase?

I honestly wouldn’t because I feel it is not a good fit for me and what I am looking for in a foundation. I would try out their other types of foundations though.

Have you tried this foundation? Let me know

See ya later

    Thanks for the review Lebo, I am actually looking for more light converage foundations for everyday wear, I will check this one out. Does it give a matte or dewy finish?

      Pleasure Lungi, Happy I could help it’s a combination of both matte and dewy.
