Streetwear Color Rich Foundation Shade Natural

I have a love-hate relationship with this brand :stars:.  Some products turn out to be so lousy that I swear never to get more, but then some things are made real tempting like the lipsticks in Satin Smooth, some matte ones and the silver packing one (I forgot the name) that I end up getting them just to try :dance: and similarly, I saw this in my local grocer’s (Nilgiris if you are in Chennai) and picked it up.

The shades available were Natural, Pearl, and Warm.  Now, to tell you honestly, the reason to get this one was that Indian market is flooded with white and pearl foundations, I don’t know why and more often than not, I mix two shades to get my own foundation shade or end up using a darker shade and then opt for a lighter powder, but never a white foundation :headbang:

So, when I saw this on the rack, I saw two very suitable colors to Indian skin tone in Natural and Warm and a Fair one in Pearl.  I must say I was mighty impressed that they have given thought in making shades suited to our beautiful olive Indian skin and not just whitish-looking cake-y ones.

Now, this was lying besides the Revlon ColorStay ones which again are such pink and white foundations :yuck:; in pearl mist, some rose shade and some natural one’s, but all very white and pink.  Streetwear is a chota bhai of Revlon and comes out with very affordable shades and many a times, I have thought that perhaps the same thing goes into both Revlon and Streetwear and just the brand alters the pricing (tell me your thoughts on this :secret2: ).  I must say these very cheap foundation looked better and more suitable than the ColorStay one by Revlon.

This “Natural” one was a medium shade, the “Pearl” was a wearable white, and one more in “Warm” was more for olive skin, but I could do with mixing a little bit lighter one to it and still be happy. The texture of this one is thick and a little greasy and more heavier than my oily skin would like.

The shade is a warm, orange-based one and I always add a little moisturiser to it or a drop of lighter foundation to it and then dab with fingers on areas where coverage is needed. Even with the brush, this foundation would need a lot of blending as it’s a little thick, but somehow, I find it easier to use with fingers and it blends quite alright for me.

Since it is an oil-based foundation, I think dry skin would really like and more so for the fact that the shades are so wearable, everyday kind, and not made keeping in mind for parties where you need a whitish coverage.  Remember the job of a foundation is to even out skin and not to make you three shades lighter and look white.  For that purpose, I don’t layer it on, I just dab on areas of need. For the neck and jawline, it does a good job too.

This a medium-to-full coverage foundation, so pigmented, blemished and scarred skin should give it a try.  This one does oxidize and can look cake-y if you go overboard, go light and easy and it should work just fine and it needs to be set with powder definitely for oily skin as the oil would make it look greasy.

It was sweat proof for at least three hours or so after which I thought touching up with powder was a good idea, but overall, I am happy with the coverage shade and the fact that I can mix it up with a moisturiser or a lighter foundation to make it usable.

Last Word on Streetwear Color Rich Foundation:  Shade Natural

If you are new to foundations, want to start with a low-end one, want a shade which is darker and not whitish, I suggest checking this out definitely; dry skin would like it even more.  I am happy for the utility and the price I paid.
