Hey lovelies! How are you all on this Friday? I'm having a hard time formulating this intro, so why not just dive right into the review. First tell me something, do you have any experiences with an American brand W3LL PEOPLE? Based on my experience it is a brand that I definitely suggest you look into it. W3LL PEOPLE is a makeup brand with a mission to create super premium quality cosmetics without using the potentially harmful artificial chemicals found in most conventional makeup. Their approach to beauty is built on simplicity, authenticity and performance. State-of-the-art, all-natural formulas effortlessly deliver flawless coverage and soothing protection that's unbelievably light. They said that you'll find their delightfully stylish products unmatched in delivering a natural "no-makeup" look. That is what I like to hear - natural yet effective makeup products. Yas!
I've heard so many great things about the products and I've been really intrigued by them, so you can only imagine how excited I was when the lovely Rayna from Reina Organics asked me if I would like to try their Narcissist Foundation Stick*. Well yes please! But if you've ever ordered foundation online, then you know it can be a pain in the bum to pick the right shade match. We agreed on the second lightest shade, the 01 called Fair Pink. It's not the perfect shade because it is a tad too pink for my skin tone but it is a great match and I can easily make it work. If I'd want a perfect perfect match, then I'd have to mix the 01 and 02. But I can't be bothered with that. The foundation, and all of their products, are 100% natural with an emphasis on organic ingredients. At W3LL PEOPLE are proud that their makeup contains an advanced botanical complex of organic aloe, organic chamomile and organic green tea, which have nourishing and protecting benefits to the skin.
The foundation has a gorgeous creamy consistency which gives a satin finish to the skin. It makes it radiant, fresh and healthy looking. It seamlessly and beautifully melts into my skin, it's not sticky, oily or greasy, just lovely. At the beginning of the application it can feel a little heavy because it's a cream formulation, but after you blend it in, that feeling immediately disappears and it doesnt't really feel like you're wearing a foundation. It has light to medium coverage and it is buildable without looking like you're wearing a ton of foundation. A great thing with its creamy consistency is that can be also used as a concealer. If I have an angry spot to cover up, I also use another concealer but if not, it's perfectly alright to use just the foundation. But I always like to use something else under my eyes. It's quite long lasting, but I always add a little bit of powder on top just to make it last that more longer.
Here is my bare face.

You should apply this foundation with fingertip or brush and not directly to face, but the later is so convenient and quick. I know, I know, it's not hygienic but it is what it is. So, I applied it straight from the bullet and blend with Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Sometimes I also tap it in with fingers.
