[] Cezanne Neri Essence Foundation Compact Review[]

Hey all~~~
Just wanted to do a quick review today on the Cezanne UV Essence Neri Foundation.
This foundation is full coverage, it's a cream compact which sets to a powdery finish. Covers up the pores and help with dry patches which gives a glossy finish. Though it does dry kind of dewy finish.

It contains Hyaluronic acid, Apple extract, Yeast extract, Collagen and Amino acid system extract (moisturizing ingredients).It also have SPF26PA++.

This is what the container looks like.
Also this is how it looks when you open it. So it's got flip compartment which you can put the sponge and not on top of the foundation it self for hygiene purpose.

Here's a picture of my bare face under the natural indoor lighting, no flashes. you can see all sorts of stuff like pores.
Here's a picture of the product swatched on my wrist to show the coverage power. You can see that it covers the blue of my vein showing on my wrist and also it's quite yellow. the shadow is a really yellow base.

So here it is applied with fingers. you don't really need to use the sponge to apply it glides on smoothly, easily blended with fingers. and a little bit goes a long way. the coverage is definitely FULL coverage.

How did it turn out as the day go by? well I have combination skin. currently combination dry because of winter, heaters and things. So I thought I needed a bit more of moisture foundation so my dry patches don't show up. This started off with a beautiful full coverage foundation without looking cakey. I would even say that it covers better than my Estee Lauder DW, which surprises me. It settles from a cream to powder within 2-3 minutes. you can top it off with a powder or just leave it. But 4-5 hours through out the day, my nose start to get oily and around my T zone. by the end of the day my face was just oily. had to blot twice to get rid of that oil.

No breakouts but i just think it is too moisturising for combination skin. Probably perfect for those who have dry skin. If you apply less of the product and blend it out, you can achieve a medium coverage. really nice quality but just too moisturising for me. So I pass it on to my mum, she loves it.

It also helps with tired looking skin, give it that bit of extra dewiness and glow, plus it has a UV protection, so you don't need another sunscreen over it. I mean you can always use a primer for a longer staying power, but I test it out without any primer underneath just my moisturiser.

[] Give away coming up soon. ~~~[] excited to share.. ~~~

Have a great weekend.

I am amazed that this covers better than EL Doublewear! Sounds like the DW lasts longer, though.

Wow! This gives a very good coverage! Sad to say it is too moisturizing for you! You're right, could be better for dry skin! I heard and seen about this brand via Sasa :) Didn't know they make good products!
