Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Flawless Serum Foundation
Today's post is an update on the new Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Flawless Serum Foundation. I have a first impressions video on this product on my YouTube channel, which you can watch here.
I was super excited when Juice Beauty released their new Phyto-Pigments makeup line in collaboration with Gwyneth Paltrow. I was beyond happy to learn that the whole Phyto-Pigments collection is 100% vegan. I knew then that I wanted to try everything! I did pick up a few of their new products and will be doing separate posts on those later on.
Alright now on to the review.
Now that I have used it several times and have a better feel of it, I felt it was time to do a post on it. Here are the specs of this product:
This foundation is cruelty-free, vegan and organic. Also rich is antioxidants, has an age-defying serum built in. Formulated without silicones, talc, parabens, synthetic fragrance, artificial dyes and other nasty ingredients that you don't want to be slathering on your skin.
Price: $42 for a 1oz sleek glass bottle, depending on where you get it from. I got mine the day that it was released on the Juice Beauty website for 15% off with a coupon code. If you are new to Juice Beauty you can sign up to their email list and they will send you a 15% off coupon for your next order. If you buy it at Ulta I'm sure you can use your points to get it cheaper.
Finish: Flawless dewy, healthy looking finish, depending on your skin type. It's definitely dewy on me, due to my combo skin.
Coverage: Claims to be med to full, but on me is light to med. Can be a full coverage if you apply more layers. Of course, this also depends on what your definition of full coverage is. Since my skin is fairly clear I only use one layer and I get my desired coverage.
Lasting Power: I get around 8 hours of wear, I don't normally keep my foundations on for more than that.

Now let's get to the Pros & Cons.
* It's Vegan, Natural & Organic!!!
*Lightweight, very comfortable to wear.
*It goes on smoothly, blends nicely.
*Reduced my redness & fine lines.
*Does not settle into my fine lines nor does it cling to my dry patches.
*Love the flawless finish, although there is no shimmer, it gives a radiant healthy looking finish.
*The packaging is very nice, with a frosted glass bottle and gun metal finish cap (has a pump).
* Free from lots of toxic ingredients.
*They got 10 shades from very fair to deep skin tones. The photo below isn't a great swatch photo, but I tried my best.

I only found one con, it gets pretty shiny at the end of the day. Maybe after 4-5 hours of wear, I notice that my skin looks shiny but not extremely oily. My t-zone is what gets the shiniest, due to it being oily to begin with. I'm sure if I were to set it, I would not get as shiny, and of course, some blotting papers help with that issue. It is not a deal breaker for me but if you are very oily, this foundation might look super shiny on you.
I didn't know if these were a cons or pros so I'm just leaving them here, just FYI.
*It sets fairly quickly.
*It did oxidize on me, meaning it got darker about an hour after I applied it.
*Shake well before using it to mix the serum and pigments together.
Overall, this foundation is an amazing everyday base. It has become one of my favorite foundations for sure. I did stop using it because it's darker than my skin tone at the moment, but I will be using it in the summer. I forgot to mention that I bought the shade, Medium Tan. I definitely recommend this product, so check it out for yourself.
Have you guys tried this foundation? If so, what are your thoughts?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Remember to shop cruelty-free!!!
