Even though the product has some good qualities overall, such as using it while applying a thick, coverage foundation, and being oil free!

Beauty Hooked Rating: 7/10

Is it Beauty Hooked Approved?

Overall, this foundation is great because it is full coverage and oil-free! It comes in various different skin tones to suit the average Pakistani skin. It is paraben and gluten free, which most foundations aren’t! It is Beauty Hooked Approved.

 

SO WHAT IS OUR OVERALL VERDICT?

Overall, the products are a fresh breath of air, however, there are little improvements that can be made here and there. We personally loved the ‘Underglow Enhanced Light-Diffusing Gel’ as it is multipurpose, and it leaves that perfect natural and radiant-looking, youthful glow. The ‘Velvet Perfection Foundation Primer’ is as mentioned, one of those products that require some improvement. It’s a little difficult to handle (the pump sprays the product everywhere), and the consistency of the primer isn’t at all gel-like, nor does it make the foundation stick. Although, the ‘Moisture Complex Foundation’ oxides rather quickly, however, if paired with a primer it gives a natural and flawless finish. It’s also great for dry skin and comes in various different shades to suit the Pakistani Skin tone.

Overall, our pick of the day would be the ‘Underglow Enhanced Light-Diffusing Gel,’ which is a must try.
