Maison Jacynthe | Fluid Complexion Foundation

Maison Jacnynthe is a Candian skincare brand that I really love. I first wrote about their skincare line and then about their makeup line in 2016. They have since added a foundation to their range.

Ingredients; water, glycerin, octydodecanol, octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate, polyglyceryl - 10 stearate, oleic polyglycerides, benzyl alcohol, tocopherol, magnesium aluminum silicate, fragrance, microcrystalline cellulose coffee arabica seed oil, borage seed oil, cellulose gum, dehydroacetic acid, coffee seed extract, linaloolcellulose, citronellol, cinnamyl alcohol, limonene, eugenol.

Paula's Choice is the first website I will go to when I want to check out what ingredients are in a product. As you can see with this foundation, many of the ingredients are pretty good. The only downfall is the amount of fragrance added. It had no effect on my skin though.

When I got the foundation it was summer and  I got quite a tan this summer so my usual Nars foundation was too light for me. In this range, there are five shades available. Hopefully, in the future, they add more shades. I thought that 1. porcelain would be way too light so I went with 2. sand. Unfortunately, the shade sand was at least two shades too dark for me. When I put it on my face, it looked like orange fake tan...kind of giving off Ross Geller vibes. No matter how much I blended the product, you could see that it was completely off for me. Aside from seeing what the product was like, the shade was unwearable.

Shade problem aside, I LOVED the feeling of the foundation. I am not sure if it is cause I am getting older but I am starting to lean towards more light foundations or tinted moisturisers. I like to be able to see some skin through whatever I wear. This product is really light so if you want a heavy coverage, it won't be for you. The product itself was easy to blend with my Beauty Blender. When applying this foundation, I found that a little went a long way. After it was blended, it left a natural, dewy finish which was beautiful. If it wasn't for the shade issue, I would have worn this foundation every day in summer!
