CATRICE Photo Finish Liquid Foundation 18h [Review]

After trying out a bunch of foundation at Naheed super market I bought CATRICE photo finish liquid foundation, and I think the time spent, was worth it.I am definitely going to try out more products from Catrice, the quality is very good among other "affordable" brands.
with flash
Catrice Photo finish liquid foundation 18h  comes in a nice a glass bottle with a plastic lid and a pump dispenser.All the details about the foundation including the ingredients are mentioned on the bottle.This foundation is heavily fragranced I thought its going to give me a major headache but it didn't happen:). The texture is very interesting its like a whipped cream and its very easy to blend on face, no matter how much you shake the bottle, the foundation won't drip out, it won't even move. it looks dark in the tube but it isn't very dark on my skin, it is a good match for my complexion, I bought the deepest color 050 deep bronze, I wouldn't recommend it for dry skin because this foundation is very silky when applied on face and after 3 minutes it sets to a semi matte finish ,it is suitable for combination to oily skin. I apply it with my fingers and use a buffing brush later.It doesn't require a touch up for at least 5 hours.The coverage is buildable you can layer it on for a heavy look or just use a light layer.I have never tried any photo finish HD kind of foundation so I can't make any comparisons but this foundation photographs very well, it gives a  flawless and glowy look to my skin, the "soft focus effect" claim is 100% true.

What I like About Catrice Photo Finish Liquid Foundation 18h

Easy to blend, smooth silky creamy texture, nicely packaged, provides a lasting finish, semi matte foundation but doesn't look heavy and cakey,  lightweight non greasy on skin, didn't break me out,doesn't require frequent touch ups, photographs well, good color match for my skin, its perfect for lighter to dark blemishes and acne coverage, doesn't clog pores.

Price I paid Rs. 820 for 30ml at Naheed super market.
I am definitely going to repurchase this foundation.

I recently announced a ZARA handbag giveaway hope you will join it here

Have a nice day:)

  7. Hello, it's my first time coming to your blog :)
    Is this foundation bad for flash photography? I am going to have a banquet dinner so I need a foundation that's photo friendly.

    1. Thank you so much for visiting my blog:)I've noticed this foundation works equally well with or without flash photography ...It creates a nice soft focus, I use a thick layer of this foundation because I have to hide my acne scars but it doesn't look cakey and heavy in pictures which is awesome.

  10. hey nice reading your blog :) dear is it ok for very oily & mild acne prone skin type? Best wishes.

  11. I am really sorry for replying you so late, I used this foundation when my skin was recovering from acne but I still had lots of pimples, dark spots, irritated oily skin... it was the best foundation for my skin back then. Its not a matte finish foundation, but on my skin it looked and felt almost matte, You may want to apply a setting powder for better matte finish.
