Review | DB Cosmetics Longwear 24 Hour Foundation

I've heard very positive things about the Designer Brands Longwear 24 Hour Foundation, so today I will be sharing with you my thoughts, opinions and if I'd recommend getting your hands on it.

Designer Brands Longwear 24 Hour Foundation effortlessly glides onto skin and evens the skins texture for a flawless complexion. Boasting a full, smudge-proof coverage, it also doesn't cake, flake or feel heavy. 


Pharmacies & Chemists

Lets start off with the packaging. 
The frosted glass bottle has an expensive feel to it and I love that it has a pump dispenser. It just makes it that whole lot easier to pump the amount of product you desire without any mess or fuss.

The foundation itself is great. It blends into the skin quite well leaving you with a flawless base to work with. It didn't cake up on any areas of my face so if you felt the need to add extra coverage, you can absolutely do that.

I didn't find that it creased under my eyes or sink into my pores. For a full coverage foundation, it certainly doesn't feel like it on the skin which is amazing. It's actually comfortable to wear and covers imperfections and uneven skin tone nicely. I own the shade 'Classic Ivory' and I find it's a good match for my fair skin tone.

I wore this foundation for a good 8 hours without using any products that would extend the longevity of the foundation and my makeup still looked good, which was a pleasant surprise. It also didn't fade or smudge throughout the day either which is a bonus! 

A bit of oiliness did rise to the surface around my nose especially however, the foundation didn't separate or wear off in that area. Keeping in mind that I do have an oily skin type, so for a foundation that doesn't contain any mattifying or oil control properties to stay in place all day long is a wonderful thing.

Overall, I am very impressed by this foundation and it did everything it claimed. The staying power is incredible without any use of a powder, primer or makeup setting spray. It did a great job at covering imperfections and redness as well.

The consistency of the foundation is nice. It isn't too watery or thick which makes it so easy to blend into the skin. Whether you use a brush, your fingers or a beauty sponge to apply, the results are just great. A perfect foundation for every day wear as it has SPF to protect your skin from sun damage. If you're in need of some extra coverage on days where your skin just isn't being kind, this will definitely take care of that! 

The pros definitely outweigh the cons and it is one my favourite foundations that I like to reach for as it has everything I look for.

I give this a big two thumbs up and I would recommend it to anyone who is on the search for a good quality, wallet friendly foundation that provides fantastic results. A must-have in your makeup bag!
