Edward Bess Black Sea Mousse Foundation with Brush
Not What I Expected
After watching the demonstration and hearing this was a great cover all which would go on so easily without filling in lines, I decided to try it. I immediately felt that it was heavy on my face and in the mirror seems to accentuate the lines and pores rather than hide or diminish them. I couldn't wait to take it off. I also was not happy with the color as it appeared too light even though it was the medium. I must say I didn't realize I would need to use some type of prep such as a moisturizer first to truly get the smooth look and airy feeling, but I also was not looking for something that required steps beforehand, especially at this price. Sadly, this is not for me.
I would like to see what the make-up does for women of color. I wear Bobby Brown and her make-up is great and when she is on QVC she uses ALL models to represent her make-up. Here's a tip: if you say that your make up cover all skin colors then show your make-up on ALL skin colors Mr. Bess.
I am African American and I absolutely love this foundation. I use the Tan. The coverage is absolutely flawless and is very lightweight. I have never spent this much on a foundation before, but it is very much worth it and a little goes a long way. I don't need to use much of this foundation because it covers/blends so well. It also lasts a long time. I'm still on my 1st container and I initially tried this product about a year ago. How's that for value? I'm ordering another today and I'm so glad it's on easy pay!
Not for me.........
I am not as crazy about this foundation as everyone else is. It feels heavy on my face and makes my face feel dirty. I was looking for something new to use but will stick with my foundation from IT...... For the price of this, I thought it should be better than what it is.
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.
