Lumene Triple Stay Foundation


It's quite hard to make up my mind about this foundation, partly because it's good and partly because it isn't. So let's do some kind of pros and cons list ok?

PROS:
- though i'm very pale i don't even have to use the lightest shade because Lumene's makeup is created for scandinavians and know our colour (preach it Lumene).
- it covers all the "flat" surfaces on my face very well like my forehead, cheeks. around my nose, lips and eyes however it just won't adapt and requires a lot of work to make it blend in with the skin.
- long-lasting.

CONS:
- claims to be good for oily skin but actually makes my skin oilier than ever, mostly my forehead. it just clogs up my pores.
- as said, it just won't work around my eyes, lips and nose. Especially under my eyes I want to be able to cover up my dark circles but this will just get stuck in creases and make me look even more tired.
-doesn't really seem to sink in to the skin, it just mostly lies on top of it and acts a bit sticky and if you put your face on something you'll leave a skin colored mark.

I won't stop using this but I won't buy it again. Retails for about £12.99

  1. I'm not sure why you had a bad experience with this foundation, however I love this foundation. This is the first "drugstore" foundation I have used and it is better than the department store brands I have used. It still gets me oily, however not as much as you did. When it dries, it doesn't transfer and it feels velvety soft. It is waterproof and I have proven that with use. I do apply more than 1 layer and it still stays put after hours on.
