Worth the Hype Wednesday – @patmcgrathreal Sublime Perfection Foundation

July 15, 2020

As a lover of testing out foundations, every new release intrigues me! However, I can’t afford that, so I live for foundation samples! Today, Iโ€™m testing out the @patmcgrathreal Sublime Perfection Foundation ($68 for 1.18 ounces – https://shopstyle.it/l/bkbgP)!

What it claims:

๐Ÿ”˜ A long-wearing, customizable foundation that builds from sheer to medium coverage in a wide range of universal hues that manifest the ultimate sublime skin standard

๐Ÿ”˜ A Vita-Serum Complex moisturizes and helps fight the appearance of wrinkles, while Diamond Core Powder Technology enhances skinโ€™s texture, and helps smooth and blur the appearance of fine lines, pores, and imperfections

๐Ÿ”˜ The silky, weightless formulation imparts a filtered, soft-focus luminosity

My experience:

๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป One of my pet peeves when it comes to foundation samples is when a single packet doesn’t cover the entire face. If you are going to go through the effort and expense of creating samples for distribution, please put enough product in it.

๐Ÿ”˜ I applied this with a sponge on the right side and a brush on the left side. I much preferred the coverage on the brush side, so that would be my preferred application method.

๐Ÿ”˜ The coverage is light. I didn’t have enough to build it up, so I only got light coverage with the sponge and low medium coverage with the brush.

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป It blended out easily and gave my skin a smooth, natural looking finish.

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป In the photo, I had been wearing the foundation for ten (10) hours. While it had bunched up in my forehead lines the tiniest bit, it still looked beautiful!

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป I got pretty dewy on my nose around six (6) hours in, but the oils never broke down the foundation.

My verdict?

Is this a nice foundation? Yes. Can you find foundations that perform similarly for MUCH less? Absolutely! If you have been looking for something lightweight, long-lasting and lower coverage, I highly recommend the @stellarbeautyofficial Limitless Foundation (currently on sale for $19 for 1.01 ounces – https://shopstyle.it/l/bkbjo).
