If you know me, you probably are well aware that I am not a girly girl. Most days I leave the house with little to no make up on, in gym clothes. (Yes I am a Lululemon snob, so I can be a little materialistic!). Now that I work from home, it's an exciting day when I actually have plans and have to put on regular clothes and make up. Anyways, one of my best friends got married Memorial Day Weekend and I wanted to make sure that I didn't look like the gym rat in her wedding. I decided to splurge (yes, for me it was a splurge) and buy a good foundation. I needed something that I knew would last the whole wedding. I had read a lot about Veer Cosmetics' Foundation, so I decided to order it.
I ordered it a week prior to the wedding. I wasn't super hopeful it would arrive on time, but figured, I already use drug store make up and could make due with that if I needed to. Anyways, to my surprise, the product arrived six days later. It cost about $18, which is well over the $1 I spend on make up at the Dollar Store (don't judge, the Dollar Store make up has served me well!).
I ordered the "natural" shade, which was the second lightest shade. I have pretty olive skin, but my face is always lighter because I love to wear hats and I try to keep it out of the sun as much as possible. I knew that if the shade didn't match my skin, I could ship it back and exchange it free of charge. I decided it was safe to test out the shade prior to using it for the wedding.
The foundation matched my skin perfectly. (Like I couldn't tell you the last time I found a foundation to match so well!). I guess I learned my Dollar Store BB Cream wasn't as good after all, because it would go on super light and I would have to cake on bronzer to blend it. Two pumps of the Veer Foundation covered my whole face. It went on light and didn't feel cakey at all. I did use some bronzer just to blend with the rest of my skin, but I didn't have to use a lot of heavy bronzer. (I actually used the lighter of the two bronzers I have). I had some blemishes under my eye and on my chin, and the foundation seemed to cover them well, without the use of additional concealer. (I typically have to use a foundation + concealer to cover my blemishes).
Overall, I was very, very pleased with the foundation. It worked well with some of the rest of my drug store, dollar store, and Ipsy make up. Hopefully, this bottle will last me a while (since I am not an everyday make up wearer). Check out my (unedited) video below of my Veer Experience/My Overall Make Up Routine. Also, check out these photos from the wedding.
The foundation worked wonders at the wedding. It stayed all day (and night). I also used it for the rehearsal dinner, which was outside in the heat, and it survived the sweat and didn't just drip off.
