betsybeanmd: I struggled so much with application of this foundation. Finally perfected with the beauty blender. Thank you so much!!
Rachel Anise: Happy to help! So glad you have the Mineral Veil...it fabulous! xoxo
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 you!
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 the foundation!
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 foundation.
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 helps...xoxo
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 photos? Thanks!
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
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
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?
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
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: 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!
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!
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: Hi Cartelt!
Thanks so much for subscribing! I am thrilled that you are enjoying my tutorial. This foundation is fantastic! xoxo
cartelt: I'm a new subscriber and I can't stop watching this awesome review! I'm lusting after this foundation :)
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: 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!
