{Review} 2 Avon / Justine Cream to Powder Foundations & Justine Silken Pressed Powder Review

Hi guys ! Happy Monday. How was your weekend ?? I got Saturday off - and really enjoyed just sleeping late and chilling that one extra day. 

A little while back Avon send me a few goodies to try out and review on the blog. I will slowly start sharing them from today and share what I thought about the products. 

It's no secret that I love Avon products - so I was really excited to try them out. Today's post will concentrate on mostly the 2 Cream to Powder Foundations as well as the Justine Silken Pressed Powder. 

I have dry - dehydrated skin at this stage but it does get a little bit oilier during the day in my T-zone. Just so you have an idea about my skin type. 

Justine Smooth Velvet Cream to Powder Foundation SPF 15
This was the first foundation I tested out. The Cream to Powder does come with a little round sponge in the bottom ( I prefer to use my own beauty sponge instead) and has a pretty decent mirror - making touch ups on the go super duper easy. This foundation blends into the skin pretty decently and the coverage is a decent medium . I do however notice on days where I don't use a facial oil before hand - this dries out my skin a little bit (since it is a pretty matte finish ). This will be perfect for someone with a little more normal / combination skin - as this will work so much better for you. Another bonus - this one contains some SPF - I always wear SPF daily and like it when foundations include it. 

Avon True Colour Flawless Cream to Powder Foundation 
Hands down this is my favourite foundation of the two. Again - this is another cream to powder foundation. The mirror is pretty nice and again it comes with a little foundation sponge. This formula just blends into my skin making it look smooth and flawless. I love the light to medium coverage and how - easy and bendable this formula is. I don't need to use a facial oil beforehand - and it gives such a nice satin finish. I do set it lightly with some powder - but it does dry down pretty nicely on it's own too. Overall - while I don't LOVE cream to powder foundations - I LOVE this formula and will be reaching for this one over and over again. 

Justine Silken Pressed Powder
First off - I prefer to mostly use loose powder - but this powder has blown me away. It looks and feels super luxurious - making this the perfect powder for your handbag or work bag for touch ups. The mirror is HUGE - which I do like.  This is a ultra fine powder infused with white Sapphire and silk to create a soft , flawless looking coverage for a natural soft focus effect . I love using this powder in combination with the Avon Cream to Powder foundations - or my Avon BB cream as it creates such a soft flawless effect .

Have you tried any of these products yet ?  How was your weekend ?
