I recently received my Pro Membership with Face Atelier for that reason I decided to try a few of their products. The items that I purchased were the following: Ultra Foundation Pro in #4 Sand, Ultra Camouflage Duet in Medium and Ultra Blush in Tangerine.
This time we will be discussing the Ultra Foundation.
Let's begin by providing the information the site offers:
The heart and soul of FACE atelier – an innovative approach to foundation that allows you to be in control. Ultra Foundation is a silicone-based emulsion that floats on top of the skin, doesn’t crease or flake, and lasts all day long. Hydrating yet oil-free, it obscures tiny lines and pores to ensure a smooth finish. No primer needed! It's built into Ultra Foundation, thanks to the super sophisticated, silicone-based formula. Another bonus - it sets without powder, preserving the youthful, dewy finish.
I began testing this foundation at 10:30 am with my entire makeup regimen. (MAKE SURE TO SHAKE the life out of this bottle).
1:00 pm my face looks beautiful, completely done.
3:00 pm I had a bridal day makeup and was placed in a hot and humid environment, at this point I was in fear to look in the mirror:-s.
4:00 pm finished the bridal appointment and looked in the mirror; shine was showing around my t-zone area, mostly my forehead. I touched up with some loose powder.
5:30 pm touched up once again since we were going to my brides wedding, retouched the liner and lipstick.
9:00 pm went home and entertained my brother and sister-in-law. No more touching up needed.
Now let’s talk about Price:
There are two bottles for this foundation the PRO Bottle at $32.00 for 0.68 oz. (Without Discount) and the Regular sized bottle at $45.00 for 1 oz.
Now let's get real...
Fine lines, I have a few lines under my eyes, and I did noticed good coverage and my lines were not as noticeable. The only thing I did do is that after a few hours (4) my undereye area began creasing a bit, so what I did was massage gently my under eye area (to refill)and set with powder. After setting my under eye area with powder, I notices less flexibility of the product and lasted the rest of the day without any touch ups.
Since the initial test, I have used the foundation five other times and for my face and skin, the results have been about the same. The only way you will know if this foundation is the best fit for your needs and likes is to purchase a sample. Face Atelier sales samples for $1; unfortunately shipping is more than the samples. What I would do, is get together with a bunch of girlfriends and order a few samples this way shipping can be divided by all :)
I hope you enjoyed this entire process as much as I did. Feel free to ask questions or if you have tried this foundation, please let me know your thoughts and results.
