Well what a wonderful summer we have been experiencing! I have kept my makeup pretty simple of this heat but a foundation and highlight is a must for me. I pretty much wear foundation every day, its like my security blanket, it makes me feel more confident so I’m always up for trying new foundations so when i was asked to try some products from Delfy Cosmetics first product on the list was one of their foundations!
Delfy Water Resistant Foundation
I love a good medium to full coverage foundation so I was excited to see what the performance of this Delfy foundation would be like. It’s a water-resistant formula and offers a good medium coverage thats buildable but actually feels pretty light on the skin. It is meant to brighten and soften skin appearance and I have to say it seems like a really good foundation. Truth be told its been a challenging time to fully test this foundation as its been so hot it’s really testing it’s performance to the max as my skin is pretty oily in the heat as I’m having to apply multiple moisturisiers to stop my skin from drying out.
This Delfy water proof foundation is available in 7 different shades, from the lightest natural colour to the darkest cappuccino colours. The only thing I would say is it is quite tricky to colour match online, and I ended up ordering Sand 20 which seems a little more peach toned that I would usually go for, so I would love to be able to go and swatch them to find a better match for me, but as I said, it’s been so hot and my tan is much darker than usual. I’m yet to actually test the waterproof ability of this foundation as we have had no rain! But i’ll be sure to give it a good trial when I go swimming at the weekend!
Well I’m all about that sun-kissed glow this summer and I have to say this is one of my favourite liquid highlights / glow shimmer liquids I have come across. It is the perfect gold, its subtle but stunning and I love that you can add just a gentle sun-kissed overall glow to your skin.
You can apply it on top of your foundation or mix it in to your foundation for a more luminous glow. I love to use it as a highlight, halo glow, in the inner corner of my eyes, on my brow bone and cupids bow….can you tell I love it?!
The golden shimmer comes in two shades and it really is beautiful, I apply it with my fingertip and I find it blends on top of my foundation beautifully just catching the light and making my skin look so much healthier and glowing. It looks so good with a tan and I also use this on my body too.
Both the foundation and the highlight smell incredible, and maybe usually I’m not keen on product fragrance when it comes to make up but these smell so good! All in all my first thoughts on Delfy has been positive, the golden shimmer being my favourite and one I would highly recommend trying. I think so far the foundation is really good and has potential to be great, but i’m going to have to mix it with another foundation to match my current skin tone.
