beauty review: Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation

when a foundation acts as skincare, it can obviously be put into the much-appreciated category of multi-tasker {and we all love multi-taskers, right?}. so since Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, the high-tech foundation from Hourglass, acts as such, it easily falls into this category...

not only is this buildable fluid great for creating a flawless finish on the skin, but it incorporates cashmere kaolinite clay, an exceptional, skin-loving oil absorber {shine, be gone!}. Immaculate is also oil-free, humidity-proof, water-resistant, and treats acne-prone skin so well that {over time, with continued use} it improves its appearance.

but wait, there's more...

 i've already mentioned the buildability {wow, is that a word? ha!}, but you should also know that it dries to a powder finish {love that}, feels like wearing nothing, and really lasts, making my skin look amazing all day.

it sounds too good to be true, right?

sure, but trust me, it's true! i really, really think this is a fabulous foundation.

oh! and do you see that gorgeous, fluffy brush? it's the brush No. 2 and a multi-tasker, too. its soft {so luxuriously soft!!} bristles {made from taklon, a perfect alternative for those sensitive to animal hair} can be used wet or dry, meaning it applies and blend liquids {like Immaculate foundation} beautifully, as well as powders {like your favorite blush}!

the only issue i had with Immaculate was the color {full disclosure: it was sent to me by the brand's rep, so i didn't choose it}; it was just slightly too dark. fortunately, i was still able to wear it, and like i said, it is fabulous.

you can find Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in stores {like Sephora} and online; for more info, visit
