Okay so this post has been sat in my drafts for the longest time. I had forgotten to publish which is insane – because it’s a brilliant product. I have always used a white Illamasqua foundation to lighten up all of the darker shades I have in my makeup collection. As a pale girl, highstreet foundations just to do the job, they’re far to orange, and if not orange, pink. I saw these Lightening Drops online and thought they sounded amazing! and so, the next day I headed to the body shop to pick up a bottle to try.
Firstly, I love the packaging, very elegant and minimal. The dropper style application of the product is fab and makes this process really easy and controllable. I am really happy with the amount of product you receive because you only use a few drops at a time, meaning it’s great for longitivtiy. I apply a drop of my foundation along with a drop of the lightening product. Mixing together on the back of my hand, I am really impressed with the finish. You would never tell that you are using two different products mixed together. The consistency of the foundation remains the same and the lightening drops don’t reduce wearing time or finish. I’m pretty sure they offer a darkening drop as well so if you have the opposite problem to me, it’s cool, you can darken foundation too!
This product is an absolute must if you are forever trying to find the right foundation shade. I really love the simplicity of it. In the long run – this will save you buying multiple different products, simply pop a few drops in your foundation and you’ve got the perfect match. Definitely won’t be letting this one go!
