Did someone say “Wet n Wild Wednesday?”
It’s that time of the week, where I play with our favourite budget-friendly drugstore brand. Today I’m talking about the Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Foundation in Light Ivory.
This cushion foundation comes in a compact, complete with a mirror, a plastic shield (to keep it from drying out after you use it for the first time), an applicator sponge/disc and 15 g of product.
I applied a light base, then went back over it for a second layer – I achieved a medium coverage. The SPF 15 formula felt comfortable and weightless. The formula was thin (which is why I needed a second layer) and it had a pretty natural finish. I wore it for a *super* long day (17 hours to be exact), which understandably resulted in the product breaking down a bit. Well before the 17-hour mark, the product broke down a lot on my nose and on my forehead, just above my eyebrows. It was pretty noticeable, as my pink undertones were really showing on my nose, compared to the rest of my face, which still had some foundation. The product broke down a little bit on the rest of my face, but nothing too noticeable – it just looked like my natural oils were coming out to play, which gave me a shiny/dewy look (maybe a bit too much for my liking, but hey, it was a long day).
I can’t see myself continuing to use this foundation purely because it didn’t stay put on my nose, which is something that I need in a foundation. If you have an oily T-zone like myself, this foundation might not work for you, however, if you have regular to dry skin, the Cushion Foundation might play well with your skin type.
