Edward Bess Black Sea Mousse Foundation with Brush
Where has this been all my life??
I cannot believe how great this is...and I am in my 60's. My son's girlfriend is in her 20s and looks fab with this foundation. I am so thrilled to have access to this and hope you carry this forever! Evens out complexion and looks great all day long. Still working every day and it looks as good at 8 am as 5pm! Thanks, thanks and thanks!
I have been looking for a new foundation for a while and this one just may be the best. There is a trick to using this, make sure your skin is primed with a toner, serum, and moisturizer. Please keep in mind, a LITTLE goes a super long way, so just dab four tiny dots on your face and 2 on your neck, blend with the brush provided and you get very good coverage. You can add more if you need to, just keeping in mind to use the smallest amount.
Zero Staying Power
I purchased this at the QVC studio store and it glides on like silk, leaves your skin completely flawless and is like no other foundation I've ever used ... However, it wears completely off very quickly. By the end of the day, I have no foundation on my skin and I'm not about to reapply foundation midday (especially very expensive foundation) without washing my face- which I can't ( and won't ) do at work. When I get home from work I use my makeup remover cloth and my eyeshadow and mascara all come off but, as I can notice beforehand, no foundation appears on the cloth. Too bad because it looks so beautiful for a few short hours.
This foundation is fabulous! Lightweight and feels like silk, but with complete coverage that I need on my 58 yr old skin. Foundations tend to go orange on me. I ordered the medium and color is great, no hint of Orange.
Product is a bit pricey, but well worth the money.
I have tried more foundations than I can count/name, and always try a new one with a great amount of skepticism and enthusiasm because I am usually disappointed. I am pleased to say that I was truly pleased and excited after using this foundation. I had to exchange the light for medium, which arrived today, and I am in love. It didn't settle into my fine lines, covered slight discolorations and feels amazing. I know this foundation is a bit pricey, but I am okay with that given the results. I highly recommend this product!
The only fault I found is not with foundation but the brush. It looks high end/awesome but feels sharp on my face and uncomfortable. Thinking about using manicure scissors to gently trim the ends...but the foundation......difficult to believe someone so young could develop such an awesome product. I purchased medium and it is perfect. Looks very dark in jar, but you use a tiny amount and it blends perfectly and does not apply as dark as it presents in the jar. It is luxurious to apply with my own brush or fingertips/sponge . Wears all day, don't need to finish with a powder or mattifier.
The jar will last a long time so money well spent. I am glad I finally tried it. Now I am a believer and looking forward to experiencing his other products. Thank you Q for introducing me to this as I probably would not have ever known about it.
This is the BEST foundation EVER! Why? For one, a little goes a log way. The mousse texture is light weight, but the coverage is terrific. Hard to believe such flawless coverage can be achieved with so little product. Stays put all day, too. I normally wear a medium shade and that's what I ordered in this line. The shade in the container and the example online look a little darker than a medium, but is was a perfect match to my complexion, below the jaw line, and all. Expensive, but worth it. Edward Bess should change his last name to BEST!
Very surprised and pleased with the mousse foundation. This foundation is light and goes on smooth for a flawless finish. My uneven skin tones became balanced, my skin looked flawless, evenly pigmented, soft, smooth and hydrated. I have never had such a light feeling foundation provide such impeccable coverage. I went back and ordered the concealer, it is as good as the foundation. The brushes are gorgeous and are the means to such a flawless finish. Highly recommend this product, my skin looks beautiful.
BEST FOUNDATION EVER **********
I'm in my 60's w/oily skin my entire life. I do need to put a primer on underneath this foundation and found that I only need a very tiny bit to do my entire face. A little goes a long way. While the brush is nice, I prefer my fingertips and it just glides over my primer. My make-up now lasts the entire day and controls the oil. I don't have to touch-up at all. I have to keep looking at myself when I pass a mirror because I can't believe it still looks as good as it does by the end of the day. I'm fair and burn easily and the light is perfect for me. I need a little color to me and the fair would have been perfect but I needed more. Also, the concealer is fantastic. Again, a little goes a long way.........Thank you Edward Bess for finally giving me a foundation that not only gives me as much coverage as I want and stays all day...................I threw all my other foundations away. Also, these containers will last a very very long time..................Good buy for the money.
not too cracy about it!
the coverage is great! I have very very oily skin, I feel like this foundation makes my skin more oily. during the day I feel like it melt down. the foundation brush looks like a high end brush but it feels like is craping my skin. I am using chanel foundation brush better and the makeup blend better. i am a medium and i feel like i should had taken the one before medium. other than that i don't break out!
I am not and have never been a big person on makeup. Never liked the heavy feeling. With this, it never feels like I have it on, and it blends beautifully.
I am just astounded with this foundation. I used the tiniest little dot and it covered half of my face, but the finish is the real amazement.
It's matte but not dry, covers like a dream - including the pores on my nose! and is sooo light, lighter than mineral foundation.
The color match is incredible too. I'm very fair, but not porcelain and the light is the exact match. I did half my face and you literally cannot see the foundation. It just looks like the EB side is 15 years younger!
This foundation is better than Chanel AquaLuminere, which had been my Holy Grail foundation.
Edward Bess, you are a genius.
