Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Makeup |First Impressions|

Today I ran out of my favorite BB cream for summer and was devastated! Since I am not tan right now I decided to try a new foundation that has been sitting in my collection for a few months…

My Shade is 10 Classic Ivory

I first bought this when I had very dry skin and it promised to hydrate. The long 12 hour wear was also very promising since I normally wear my makeup for 12 or 13 hours a day.

When I tried it on my hand today I was very hesitant since it looked too light for me but also oxidized a little and it seemed very, very thin. None the less I decided to try it on my face. I doted it all over my face and blended it out with a flat top foundation brush by BH Cosmetics. I then did the foundation around my eyes and where I needed more coverage with a random face sponge. It covered everything I needed it too and felt very light which I loved!!!

I then went on with my routine which included Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, setting powder, Butter BronzerPaaarty BlushPure Nude Highlight, brow products, like three mascaras, and Lip Paint. After finishing everything I did see that my face was a little more yellow than my body which can be fixed but I like to not have to touch up everything else. It is so much easier when the foundation just matches and I don’t have to try and shade and all that.

I think it turned out okay (please ignore my very terrible selfie skills without a filter. But after applying everything it looked lighter than my body but not to the point where it couldn’t work for the day.

I know this doesn’t count as first impressions but I did wear this for about 6 hours today and wanted to share my experience with that. It did get somewhat oily around the nose and chin but I expect that with most foundations, especially in the summer. However, it also got cakey looking by the time I got home so I don’t think that qualifies as 12 hour wear.

Overall it wasn’t terrible but I am not sure if this is going to be a favorite of mine…I will have to try it out some more.

Bye Lovies!!
