I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for a GREAT foundation.. I have waaay too many which I will review in the near future but none have come close to being by Holy Grail foundation as Annayake Anti-Ageing Cream Foundation SPF15 has.
Annayake is a Japanese brand and I blindly trust the Japanese when it comes to skincare.. I feel that they know their stuff.. Annayake is not a very well known company on this side of the world and I came across it by coincidence.
This is a cream foundation that glides on sooo smoothly giving you such a beautiful flawless dewy look. I'm loving this foundation so much.. I'd say that it's light to medium coverage but buildable.. I still need to use concealer with this as I have some acne scars to hide.. But I really don't mind that..
I have combination skin, so naturally I was a little worried about this making me too oily when I first got it. However, the great thing is it moisturized my face without adding any extra oils to it. I do have to use a powder with this but I use the smallest amount on my cheeks as I loove to keep that dewy look.. For those who are super oily, you might not want to add too much moisturizer before this foundation as this might just be moisturizing enough.
Here's what Annayake says about this Foudation:
"This is the ideal foundation for all women in search of a flawless make-up result, while benefiting from a high-performance anti-ageing skincare product. It combats skin ageing and protects the skin with its exclusive formula containing powerful anti-ageing ingredients".
So you get the best of both worlds with this foundation.. Ageing prevention plus a beautiful complexion!
Unfortunately this comes in a jar which I don't like coz you gotta scoop the product out which is unhygienic.. It does come with a spatula but I would have much preferred a pump.. But anyway, it's not that big of a deal.. I dot this all over my face then I use my Sigma F80 and stipple it all over.. I blend it out at the edges only.. I prefer doing it that way as I find it gives me more of a fuller coverage..
Now this is a fairly expensive product but because you need the smallest amount, it will last you a long time.. And the fact that it is anti-ageing as well as a great foundation I think justifies the price.. When it comes to products that I know will help my skin get better, I really don't mind putting in that extra bit of money..
Their colour range however is VERY limited. Only 4 shades. But I have found my perfect colour (I can use 45 Naturel or 55 Sable in summer) so I'm happy.
When I got this foundation, I was given a few samples of their moisturizers which I found to be soooo lovely on the skin.. My sister also used my samples and went back asking for more samples that suit her skin type better as she loved the way it felt on her skin and wanted to check out what else they offer before dishing out some money on their products..
If you do come across Annayake I highly highly recommend that you check out their products.. They're truly amazing..
Have any of you heard of Annayke? What foundation are you loving at the moment?
