“I can’t stop talking about this foundation to anyone. Shockingly beautiful packaging, but the quality has more. Eh, really?”
Westman Gucci, a makeup artist Hollywood that got me excited when she launched her makeup line on clean, conscious makeup. I purchased the Vital Foundation Stick (Shade Atelier 3 $104) and Baby Cheeks Blush Stick (Shade Petal $76) which I will talk later on. I was hinky that the shade is too dark for me as I can’t handpick them from the Mecca store and rely on ”Find My Shade” on their website. It’s only 11 shades available so you might need to buy different shades to match your skin tone.
Oh, let’s talk about the packaging. The magnetic capped metal round tube is just so lux! It sturdy and heavy on my hand. Westman Atelier embossed on the surface of the packaging is just so, oh too pretty! Don’t worry it won’t fade and still remain the beauty so I might keep it forever. Also, another embossed inside the cap as a touch of lux and I adore it so much. Brilliant!
Move on to the application. I have never used any foundation stick before and it actually jitters my expectation. But when I first swatch it on my skin it felt smooth and it blended like a dream. I’m a natural-looking-makeup-kind-of-girl. Everything looks like skin, buys me. That’s what I was expecting from Westman Gucci too. So if you are into ”coverage” (cover all your blemishes), this might not meet your expectations. Don’t get me wrong, it builds up but I never re-apply it for 3-4 times to eschew the product to balls up. I like to use a foundation brush from elf cosmetic to smear it out and it also blends beautifully with a slightly damp beauty sponge. I stick to the brush because it gives a perfect glow to my skin. Or, I would recommend you to apply with dry beauty sponges if you don’t want your skin looks wet. It’s good tho, but I dislike when hairs stick to my face. Ugh. I still have some blemishes picking through but I like it like that. It looks natural, it’s your skin but better type of look. Yay!
Of course, I will recommend this to anyone who wants to achieve a glowy healthy looking skin. Yes, that’s about it because it actually is! I know $104 AUD isn’t cheap but I could wear it for the whole year. It also performs beautifully with or without a base but makes sure your skin is prep with skincare routine.
