Dianne Brill Fresh Water Foundation Review and Swatches

For those of us who desire a little less coverage, something lighter, something barely there, I give to you Dianne Brill Fresh Water Foundation. Incredibly lightweight and long wearing this foundation is for the rest of the population that doesn't have need of heavy coverage.

Jump ahead for it.

The appeal of most all Dianne Brill cosmetics lies in the pretty, girlish packaging. Dianne Brill Fresh Water Foundation comes housed in a flip top box which resembles that of a tiny box of chocolates and inside the foundation is wrapped up in a lace dollie. Unlike traditional pump foundations this resembles that of a mini travel size toothpaste. I absolutely adore the packaging plus I find the squeeze style tube rather ideal for getting your use out of all the product. The foundation also comes with a mini foundation brush that's quite decent for application as it doesn't shed and for such a mini size it has a nice size brush head.

The formula of the foundation is loose and very runny. It almost resembles a tinted moisturizer in some aspects as it lacks pigmentation and is quite sheer. It applies and blends very nicely however it's extremely light coverage so if you have lots of little or larger woes you're wanting to hide this isn't going to help you along your way.

For the most part those who desire light coverage that evens out skin tone and creates a nice even canvas for makeup will absolutely adore this. The foundation is incredibly light and lovely on the face and creates a beautiful glow on my skin. I don't need a ton of coverage anyway so this is a great one for Summer.

Overall, anyone who doesn't like heavy makeup or doesn't have need of heavy coverage will enjoy using this one.

This looks fun! I'd want to try it out just because i like the packaging and it looks fun but the lack of covarage would not work for me sadly
thanks for reviewing different things!
