This foundation line has been available from BH Cosmetics for a few years now but I’ve been wearing it a lot lately and so while this information is fresh in my mind I wanted to briefly sum up my thoughts on the BH Cosmetics Naturally Flawless Foundation.
Now, the bottle that I own is from the original formula, I’ve seen on their website that apparently it’s been reformulated to include hyaluronic acid, however the end result of a radiant complexion hasn’t changed.
As with all BH Cosmetics products this is geared towards being a more affordable option foundation that retails for $9.50 for a for 1 fl oz.
Despite the relatively low price tag, the packaging for this foundation is nicer than many other bottles I own from much more expensive price ranges.
The bottle is frosted glass topped with a black, plastic pump and cap which makes for a quick and clean deposit of the foundation. It feels quite weighty to hold in your hand and the labeling is very minimalist so it would sit nicely on a vanity too.
To start with, this foundation claims to keep skin hydrated and younger looking, providing medium to full coverage and a natural satin finish. And of all of those claims, I can safely say that it pretty much nails each one.
This foundation provides me with a beautiful, dewy skin appearance, very healthy and natural. I would say with how I like to apply my foundation it actually leans more light to medium coverage however other people might like to build it up more than me.
It doesn’t cling to any dry patches or texture and blends out without any streaks with all of my standard foundation brushes. It usually takes one or two pumps to cover my face with a light/medium coverage layer than evens out my skin tone and covers most of my redness.
Upon drying this colour will darker a tiny bit however it’s barely noticeable so I wouldn’t buy a shade lighter by any means.
On my oily skin
Now the only main difference I would say from the description to its performance is the finish. The website claims it leaves a satin finish however I would definitely describe it as dewy but that might have been improved in the reformulation.
As the finish is dewy it means for my oily skin that I have to set my face with powder during the summer months and I will look a little greasy at the end of the day however it really is such a lovely dewy look that I don’t mind a little powder.
Also for my oily skin this foundation, like all others, will start to break up around my nose after a full day of wear however that’s nothing new and more to do with my skin type than this formula.
If you’ve tried the latest formulation of this foundation I’d love to know your thoughts on its performance, if you think it’s more of a satin than a dewy look. I’d be interested in buying this again if it might be more suited to my oily skin now.
