I’ve been using makeup for as long as i can remember, but to be honest I never really stopped to think about what I was putting on my skin and how it could be affected. I’m always conscious when it comes to washing my face and making sure my face is clean and makeup is removed, but I wanted to start making sure my skin is being treated better when i do have makeup on. I decided to wanted to check out more natural and organic makeup products. However, i didn’t wanna overwhelm myself and dive in head first, so I’m taking it in steps and introducing new products gradually. My first product is the one I wanna talk about today which is the Burt’s Bee’s Goodness Glows foundation. Keep reading to check out my thoughts on this product.
About the foundation: taken from the description on Ulta, Burt’s says that this foundation is “full coverage, mineral makeup that will leave your skin smooth and radiant. The finish is natural and not cakey or greasy” it is 98.9% natural and moisturizing. In regards to ingredients it is “Formulated without parabens, phthalates, SLS, petroleum or synthetic fragrances.”
Packaging: the packaging for this foundation feels very sturdy and well made. The design is simple but not bland. My favorite part of the packaging is the pump. I love when foundations have a pump as it just makes dispensing so much easier then the risk of dumping way to much product on the back of my hand.
Shade range: this line offers 12 different shades and to be honest I find that a few of the shades are very close to one another and don’t provide that much of a variety. This seems to be a large discussion within the beauty world of brands not offering a large range of shades. I feel that although it’s a good start, Burt’s can definitely add more choices.
Application: I applied this using my elf ultimate blending brush. The product blended well into my skin. There was no streaking or patches. Also, i didn’t have to apply a lot of product I did a pump to a pump and 1/2
How it wore: while I liked how the product looked when it was first applied, I did feel that in regards to long wear it isn’t the best. As the day went on the foundation started to separate especially around my nose. My skin also became quite oily specifically on the sides of my nose and chin. I didn’t reapply my powder, so I’m not sure if that would have fixed it or not. Aside from separating the product still had decent coverage in the areas that it didn’t. It looked smooth on my cheeks and forehead. While the foundation did a good job and covering up my redness and evening out my skin tone I wouldn’t go as far as calling it full coverage but rather a medium one. I still have some bumps and acne scars that were still visible after wearing the foundation so I did apply concealer on top of the foundation. However, our skin isn’t all the same, so maybe it will wear better for other people. Also, most foundation separates around my nose and therefore i wasn’t to upset about it.
Overall thoughts: Overall I do like the foundation and have been wearing it quite a lot . Is it my favorite foundation ever? No but it’s not my least favorite. I think if you are looking for a good everyday foundation that looks natural this is a good choice. I am hoping that Burt’s Bee’s comes out with more makeup products. I’d really like to try and concealer form them and see how it pairs with the foundation.
Have you tried this foundation or any Burt Bee beauty products? What were your thoughts on them?
