What is it and who is it for? Essence Stay All Day 16h Long Lasting Makeup Foundation is liquid water-based foundation by the essence that claims to last for 16 hours i.e. it is a long-lasting foundation. The product is extremely light-weight and feels very silky on the skin. It gives a flawless finish with medium coverage that you can easily build upon. It doesn’t crease and easily lasts for more than 12 hours of wear. It is a really good product and I would recommend it to everyone but in specific to students and working women who need this kind of long-lasting performance from a foundation.
It retails for Rs.499 and one bottle contains 30 ml. I bought it online from Nykaa. It is available in 4 different shades. I got mine in the shade 30 Soft Sand.
How to Use:
The product comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser on the top so you don’t have to worry about germs contaminating the product. I would recommend using a mattifying primer underneath the foundation if you have oily skin. Then you can either use your fingers to apply the foundation or a sponge or a brush. I personally prefer my makeup sponge. I take two pumps of the foundation on the back of my hand first, then dip my wet makeup sponge into it and then dab it onto my face and blend it all together for a good 2-3 mins. But you can also dot the foundation on your face first and then blend it in with your fingers/brush/makeup sponge and voila you have a smooth and flawless canvas that you can build your look on.
My Experience with Essence Stay All Day 16h Long Lasting Makeup Foundation
My experience with this foundation has been nothing but good. When I first wore this foundation a friend complimented me on how good it looked and she didn’t even know I was trying out a new foundation. I love this foundation because it stays put throughout the day and doesn’t oxidize on my skin at all. Another major plus point of this foundation is that I don’t feel like I’m wearing a foundation it feels extremely light on the skin and doesn’t break my skin out. It requires absolutely no touch-ups once applied. I love this product its light on the pocket and the face.
