So I’ve been wanting to try getting into cream foundations for the longest. I’ve always been a liquid foundation girl but I’m always hearing the raves about how natural cream foundation looks and how well it blends and how easy it is to adjust the coverage… blah blah blah… the list goes on. Enter, Mehron Celebre HD Pro Foundation, they have so many shades and I’ve seen so many good reviews on the internet about their formula. Mehron’s site also states that the Celebre HD Foundation contains “powerful antioxidants such as vitamin E, pomegranate and aloe vera that help soothe the skin”. Color me intrigued.
Unfortunately they aren’t available anywhere locally near me but I was able to order online from Camera Ready Cosmetics during their 20% Black Friday sale. I had to guess my shade from swatches I found online which can be tricky. I purchased two shades Medium Dark 3 and Dark 1, hoping that I could use Dark 1 all over and Medium Dark 3 to conceal/highlight under my eyes. The two shades looked almost identical in the pot but once swatched I could easily see the difference.
Sadly, Dark 1, is way to olive toned for my yellow undertone and it makes me look a sickly ashy green color. yuck!
But other than my color matching fail the formula on these seems to be pretty great. They are full coverage but are easy to sheer out with a damp sponge. It feels light on my face and is not greasy but I do think it needs to be set with a powder if you have oily skin. For only $9 for a huge pot (.9 oz) I will definitely be ordering a few more shades to see if I can find a perfect color match out of their 40 shade selection. Funny, I’ve never had to problem of having TOO MANY color options for a foundation!
