Foundations have always been a tricky thing for me because of my complexion. When I buy foundation almost half the time I have to go back to the store to return it or exchange it because it didn’t match my skin and there was no other color that would go with my skin tone. That’s why most of the time I stick with one foundation L’Oréal True Match which is a pretty well-known foundation within the beauty community for having a large variety of shades. As the beauty industry grows and as more women started demanding more variety of colors, brands have started to listen. Let’s be honest there are so many different skin tones out there we should be able to find at least one foundation that truly matches our skin and If that doesn’t work let’s make it work read below to see how.
How I use it: normally I use the back of my hand and put some foundation. Then to darken the foundation to match my semi tanned skin, I add the dark shade adjusting drops. I started with one drop to see if that would work and if it was still too light for my tanned skin I would add another one until it matches my skin. Once I get it to match, I applied it all over my face and there you have it. No need to buy a new foundation for now. Same thing applies if you have a foundation that’s too dark for your skin. I actually had one that I was going to return but I tried the light shade adjusting drops on it and there is no need to exchange it now.
These shade adjusting drops aren’t too thick or runny. It has a nice consistency and it’s easy to blend. It comes in a glass bottle with an easy to use dropper. It does have a rose scent to it so if your big on smell, I always suggest you smell it at the store to see if you would be ok with the smell before you decide to purchase it. They both cost $20 each, which I honestly think is a great deal considering the amount of money we spend on foundations all the time. I feel like these would save us some money and they actually do what they are supposed to do which is a huge plus. Would I recommend them? Yes, as I said they do what they are meant to do and they do a really good job at adjusting any foundation or BB cream.
