Hi beauties! I am so excited to be doing this review today. I have been trying the Barry M Flawless Matte Foundation (£5.99) for 3 weeks now and have lots to talk about.
Barry M describes it as "An oil free formulation, containing soothing moisturisers with skin healing properties, for a flawless matte finish"
First of all the packaging is gorgeous, it reminds me of the Benefit Hello Flawless bottle. Lovely bright pink text on a 'matte' look bottle, with blogger friendly font. You can also see how much product is left due to the opaque nature of the bottle.
The product dispenses easily with the pump attached to the bottle, thumbs up for that, nobody likes making a mess with their makeup.
The product itself feels really soft and applies very easily. I use the Real Techniques expert face brush for a flawless finish and I found the coverage to be medium-full and easily buildable. It has a slight perfumey smell which I would rather it didn't have but I have got use to it now.
My mum even said she thought it looked great and I found it lasts for up to 10 hours.
The only 'flaw' with this 'flawless' foundation is that the colour range is quite limited. I have been using a mixture of beige and sand to get the perfect colour and my skin is a medium shade at the moment. I would say those with pale or medium skin would be more likely to find a suitable shade but those with dark skin would struggle.
All in all I really love this foundation, it does exactly what it says on the tin giving me a flawless matte look. I can honestly say it is a great dupe for Estee Lauder Double wear, which I wore all of last winter. Considering the price difference is £23 it is deffinitely one to try.
What do you think lovelies? Will you be giving this a go?
