Jemma Kidd Makeup School Light as Air Liquid Foundation

I've been reviewing Jemma Kidd's newest Makeup School line, and it's been taking me a bit because I really want to give it a good review. So the Light As Air Liquid Foundation was my next step to show you beauties.

Ultra light and natural skin foundation for a velvet, shine-free finish. SPF 18.

•Highly blendable & lightweight texture
•Silicone coated pigments for a velvet feel & soft focus finish
•Balancing benefits to help keep the skin perfectly matte for an even, shine free complexion
•Unique long-wear technology for all day staying power
•SPF 18 to protect skin from harmful rays

I wanted to wait to do this review until I was nice and somewhat tan because the shade is a bit darker then my normal skintone. Even though the color is 04 (Light) is has some darker undertones that I knew I couldn't pull off without being a bit more tan.

I was a bit disappointed by the squeeze tube. It can prove to be a bit messy especially if you don't put the top on extra tight. But ok, I was willing to look past that. The formula is light and thin in texture. It goes on nice and blends easily. I do think I got the wrong color, I have a bit of an olive skin undertone and I think there was a shade that probably would have been a better match. But as far as the product goes, the actual foundation is really nice! It stays on all day and even longer if you apply a facial primer. I didn't look shiny or greasy, and I tried to get a picture of myself directly in the light so you can see that it really does cover my trouble areas. It's light and velvety. (Just as described)

The best part I found was it's staying power. I even ran around town doing errands, (in the hot AZ heat) and my foundation managed to stay perfectly on my face. This is probably my #1 problem when searching for a good foundation, other then finding the correct shade. A lot of foundation tend to smear or fade during the day.

I will be trying the Light as Air Liquid Foundation very soon once I go to Target and figure out what color I think is correct. (Since I'm not as tan as below anymore) My tan faded soo quickly. Some people might think this is a bit expensive at $38, especially for a target brand, but if you have flaws on your face such as acne scars, freckles or blemishes, I think you will really like the Light as Air Foundation. I also think this is better suited for dry skin or combination skin gals who get that flaky skin during the Summer. This should moisturize and also cover up your pores if you have an enlarged pore problem. (Like myself and so many others!)

Jemma Kidd's Light As Air Liquid Foundation is available online at Target and your local Target store nearest you for $38.
