Sephora Perfecting Cover Foundation in Medium

During my shopping at Dubai last year, for the first time, I visited Sephora. The store was pretty small from what I had expected, but they seemed to have a pretty good stock (except for MUFE which had a very bad stock wherever I went in Dubai).  I bought a few other brands at Sephora and the SA recommended me to try the Sephora primer and I got one too 😀 While leaving, she gave me a few sachets of these Sephora Perfecting Cover Foundation. I never wanted to try any foundation as I am super glad with MAC Studio Fix and I feel no other product suits me so well like this one. Since these came for free, I wanted to try it on a casual day.

The foundation doesn’t have any strong smell like the MAC and I liked that aspect. I just took the desired amount and applied it with my hands. It didn’t look great in spite of using a moisturizer underneath.  I felt that it looked chalky. Then, I tried mixing it with my moisturizer and used it again, no use. I also tried applying it with a sponge and a brush and the effect was the same. I got this foundation in the shade “Medium.”



I do not need a full cover foundation but this does give me medium to full coverage. It also becomes cake-y in a while, yuck and what not. I was very disappointed with this and looked for reviews on the same.  I was surprised to see some positive reviews and it just said that you need to know the way to make it work for you. I am still trying to make it work for me!!! I have dry skin, so I prefer foundations that give me a dewy finish, but this one gives a matte finish, so people who like matte finish can try this one.


Pros and Cons of Sephora Perfecting Cover Foundation in Medium:

  • Long-lasting.
  • Paraben-free.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Oil-free.
  • Provides medium to heavy coverage.
  • Right one for you if you are looking for a matte finish.
  • Looks chalky.
  • Not very easy to blend.
  • Not available in India.
  • Does not give a natural look at all. If you go around with this foundation on, then at least 2 out of 5 would know that you are wearing makeup that is a disaster!!! Hope you get what I mean. :toothygrin:

Would I Repurchase Sephora Perfecting Cover Foundation in Medium?

No, thank God, I got free samples to try and I saved my money. I am so happy with my MAC that gives an awesome dewy finish and makes my skin glow. I am not going to try any other foundation until I get really bored with my MAC.  Though the MAC sales assistant who gave me the foundation was not very friendly (she did put the foundation on one half of my face and hubby loved it. I asked her to apply it on the other half as well and she refused to do it !!! I had to wipe off the foundation before I stepped out of the store. I was really shocked that she did that in spite of me buying products worth Rs.5000 🙁 ).  I thank her for giving me the right foundation that I would use forever and ever and ever.

  1. too bad about that MAC SA!! 😯 😯
    I used to LOVE Sephora’s Hydrating & Smoothing Foundation, I don’t know why they had to discontinue it! It was an excellent foundation that gave a dewy finish & really & truly just smoothed out all pores & lines & what not! :((

  2. oh! That was a bad experience (MAC) . I mena how could they do that. Infact when i visit their store, the MUA’s rather do the touchups and have always been friendly with me. This could actually differ from place to place but really it was quite a mean behavior. Sad it happened with you but atleast you found good stuff for yourself. 🙂

    1. Ya Rati.. It was quite shocking.. Hubby [boy friend then ;)] was actually irritated and asked why did I even pick up something from that store !! But then we had just 1 MAC store here and the products were to die-for.. so I had no other choice 🙁

      Since I had a bad experience once I really don’t feel like going to that branch ever again, in spite of people saying they have better stock than the other store in Chennai..

      1. Hi Aarthi,
