betsybeanmd: I struggled so much with application of this foundation. Finally perfected
with the beauty blender. Thank you so much!!
cartelt: It's my pleasure! I'm just starting out on my channel but will hopefully
post a review once I get my hands on this foundation.
Rachel Anise: Completely understand and yes, I do like using this formula with the
Hourglass Ambient Powders (I have Dim and Diffused). However, to be fair,
this foundation stays matte for quite a few hours before requiring a powder
touch up! Thanks for your words about my blog...I love to swatch more than
any human should ; ) xoxo
Rachel Anise: Hi Hunger Theory...thanks for your question. I adore the Revlon Colorstay
Whipped for a drugstore option (and have effectively used two jars!) but
ingredients-wise, there are a few more preservatives and chemicals in the
CS than the Hourglass. All in all, I haven't had any adverse reactions to
the CS but was impressed that the Hourglass has some anti-aging ingredients
(will cover that in my blog post) and no preservatives at all. I'll try to
do an ingredients comparison ; )
xbluesky123: Hey Rachel, is it just me or does the shade nude seem darker than light
beige when blended onto the skin? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
Rachel Anise: Thanks for the comment...now I am curious which ex-student of mine you are!
At any rate, the Internet has a wild way of creating connection, no? Thanks
for your kind words...I hope your post-highschool life has been wonderful
thus far. Warm regards!
Rachel Anise: Happy to help! So glad you have the Mineral Veil...it fabulous! xoxo
gorgeous928: What kind of primer do you use with this? I have very oily skin and use the
Becca Ever Matte primer but I'm afraid it might be overkill with this
Rachel Anise: Thank you, Tracy! Hope your weekend is going well...xo
Marya: I love your blog and recently began loving your videos too! I appreciate
how thorough you are. I was wondering if this foundation flashes back in
Rutu Patel: i love your reviews on both youtube and your blog! this foundation looks
great on you! thanks for the video
Rachel Anise: Hi Jessica! What a wonderful thing to get...congrats! I love the idea of a
high-end beauty starter kit video...thanks for the suggestion. I will try
to work on something this weekend ; ) In the meanwhile, the first thing I
can think to suggest is the Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge...moisturizer,
illuminator, skincare, primer...it's amazing and I am on my third bottle!
More soon ; ) xoxo
Rachel Anise: Hello! Thank you so much...I appreciate the feedback on the
setting/lighting! The Beauty Blender is amazing and I love the we use it
the same way. So glad you liked the video...xoxo and talk soon!
Arleen Tishler: GREAT!!! Love the review and appreciate the occasional smile! Good job! I
need a bigger makeup budget:( thanks Rachel! ...Arleen
Lucia Terrones: Hi Rachel a new subscriber here! I just bought this foundation -after
seeing Gossmakeupartist review- and I have a question, although it sounds a
lil' silly but why in the package of that foundation, & the other one from
Hourglasss too, says application with sponge not recommended? I mean the
beauty blender it's a sponge & you had no problem with it right? Plus it
looks amazing... There's any problem with sponges? =S Because I was
planning to use it with my beauty blender too. Hugs from Spain!
Rachel Anise: I typically use Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge and sometimes one pump of
Hourglass Mineral Veil (if it is extra humid or sunny outside). Both create
a slightly dewy, luminous finish that work well with the matte quality of
xbluesky123: Thanks for your response! The swatches you provided on your blog is
wonderful! This is indeed a great product, but I find that the color
descriptions on Sephora.com can be a bit misleading when compared to other
foundations. Because of this, it's a bit more of a challenge to find a
suitable shade. I agree with you that light beige seems dark. I also find
that nude is more of a medium shade rather than light. Weird!
Rachel Anise: Thanks, Kellinicole86! Hope your weekend is going well...xoxo
cartelt: I'm a new subscriber and I can't stop watching this awesome review! I'm
lusting after this foundation :)
shuppet88: Haha yeah it's so tough making foundation choices XD Would you say this
works well with the Hourglass ambient powders? I just got mine in Dim
yesterday, and I had never tried Hourglass before so I figured it might
work well with its own brand of powder. I am glad you have awesome swatches
on your blog all the time.
Rachel Anise: Thank you so much for your comment and also for subscribing...welcome to my
channel!! I don't envy your decision...finding the right foundation can be
such a challenge. Unfortunately, I haven't tried the Givenchy Photo
Perfexion (only the latest Matte formula, which wasn't my favorite) so I
cannot weigh in on the differences between the two. The Hourglass is
fabulous for medium coverage and a long lasting matte finish...also great
for sensitive skin ; ) Hope that helps...xoxo
Rachel Anise: Hi Jessie...as I mentioned in the video, there was a bit remaining from
when I got ready for the day 10 hours earlier. Take care!
existencevs: Is it the TF LE summer collection nail polish you have on your nails??
Rachel Anise: Hello dear Elle! Always a joy to hear from you...so glad you liked the vid!
Rachel Anise: Thanks! No, I clean it with soap every couple of days and otherwise let it
dry between misting/foundation application. It seems to be an effective
process thus far...
Rachel Anise: Hi Arleen...thank you so much! It's crazy how much of my budget goes to
make up...totally know what you mean ; ) xoxo
Rachel Anise: Got it ; )
mantronixtube: do you watch josh colliers channel? great review!
existencevs: did I tell you I loooooove your hair?? yes I did! I love your hair!!!!!!
Prefer this background too! It's just the deep red color of the other
wall...Too dark for my taste...Did you ever try the Laura Mercier silk
foundation??? I love it!
HungerTheory: So I noticed something you said and I am curious about it because you
really didn't follow it up with a reason you said it. You mentioned
something about the Revlon foundation vs this foundation being better for
you in terms of ingredients soaking into the skin but you didn't really
substantiate that with any information as to why you say that so I just
have to ask - Is that something you feel like is true because this
foundation is so much more expensive or have you actually looked into this?
Rachel Anise: Hello Existencevs! Thank you so much for your sweet words about my
hair...good hair genes from my family (I can take no credit!). I am glad
you like the background as well! I have tried the Laura Mercier Silk
Foundation...it has beautiful coverage, but the lasting power for me was
just "ok" and I think it might have been too heavy for my skin overall.
You? Oh, and yes, I am wearing the LE Tom Ford nail lacquer in Vapor...you
have a good eye! xoxo
Rachel Anise: Thank you so much, Rutu! I always love hearing from you and your week is
noname5905: Seems that I have come across my high school speech and debate coach's
youtube and beauty blog. I am guessing more people will find you now that
GossMakeupArtist has posted a video about this foundation being one of his
favorites. For some reason I feel that this is SO weird, but at the same
time I remember I used to admire your style and makeup, so I guess it is
not so weird at all. I love that you continue to do such wonderful things,
you and your family were always so talented. Peace and Love
Rocksugar10: I always love to watch your gorgeous products
Rachel Anise: Hello Marya, Thanks so much! I always try to cover the details that I would
want to know before buying a product ; ) I haven't found this foundation to
cause any flashback whatsoever...it doesn't contain any SPF! Hope that
Rachel Anise: Of course! Thanks for your kind words about my swatches...I get
ridiculously excited about swatches ; ) Yes, the Sephora swatches are not
the most helpful...hopefully my true-to-life pics help to illuminate the
actual shades! xoxo
Rachel Anise: Hello! I haven't found that to be the case, because light beige is
surprisingly dark to me ; ) If you haven't seen them already, I have
swatches of every shade, side by side in order of lightest to darkest on my
blog...let me know what you think! xoxo and talk care!
shuppet88: Great video...I'm also a new subscriber :) Ugh, I have to choose between
getting this or Givenchy photo'perfexion during the Sephora f&f sale this
fall. Do you have any experience with that foundation?
Elle Martini: Always a pleasure viewing your reviews and tutorials. Thank you for making
kellinicole86: Great review! This foundation is def. on my list to try soon. Looking
forward to your blog post comparison with swatches.
Noblesse Oblige Beauty: Hi darling! Great review and great lighting! This is so much better. We can
see your golden undertones. I love the technique you use with the beauty
blender (I do the same thing) Thanks for inserting all the links in the
info box :-) Your viewers will appreciate it xoxox Giada
Jessica Ringle: Hi Rachel! I just got a gift card to Sak's for 300 bucks and decided to
invest in some higher end beauty products. Could you give me some
recommendations on what you think are must-haves? I'm open to anything
cosmetics-wise. In the skincare vein I have pretty normal skin, maybe a
touch dehydrated. Perhaps you could even do a video; a "high end beauty
starter kit" or something of the sort. If not that's ok too! Thanks for
your great videos! xo
Jessica Ringle: Great, thanks so much! I look forward to it:)
mantronixtube: oh..he works for hourglass...
Rachel Anise: Hi Cartelt! Thanks so much for subscribing! I am thrilled that you are
enjoying my tutorial. This foundation is fantastic! xoxo
Jessie Ding: Are you applying the foundation on top of you existing makeup from the day?
bcclee: Great review! Do you still pre soak the beauty blender in water prior to
spraying the evian mist?
gorgeous928: Ah you're awesome! I wasn't sure I would get a response. I'm using the
Hourglass Mineral Veil so I was hoping that would be your answer lol. Thank
Rachel Anise: I haven't as of yet...will take a peek. Thank you! xo
