In 2004 a line of cosmetics designed for the eyes and face boasted the ability to blend perfectly and flawlessly with 97% of skin tones. Impossible you say? Those that have been using these products for the last four years beg to differ. They report that they are never without their seamless coverage foundation.
Here’s how it works. These products feature a pigment system created with chroma color spheres that, when applied to your face, join together with your skin to imitate your exact skin tone color. Chroma color spheres work to balance colors – even opposing colors such as blemishes and dark circles. This “technology” is old news in the art world, but a hot new trend in the beauty industry. This technology of advanced color-matching allows makeup to adjust itself to the tones of the skin. The results are touted as makeup that looks and feels natural because it leaves no streaks, no lines and no distinct signs of makeup use on hard to cover combination skin.
After studying close to fifty reviews of these perfect-blend products we found that an above average number of users found the claims to not only be true but to deliver even more than promised on all counts but one. It seems that the answer to the question, can foundation really blend itself perfectly with your skin, is yes it can. Satisfied consumers say that the technology truly works. It blends easily and smoothly and it does not leave any sign of makeup use. It finishes to a satiny powder finish that is repeatedly described as lightweight and airy. Remember, this is not a review of a specific product, but information on the technology used to create these products. The difference that these cosmetics boast is the ability to blend with your skin as opposed to other traditional foundations that sit on top of your skins surface – the result: caked on, streaked foundation. The difference you see is a less made-up look and a glow that looks more like bare skin.
For those who were not happy with these products, the real problem seemed to be in lasting results and coverage of problem areas, not in how well the products blended. Most reported that they had to retouch, sometimes more than once throughout the day, any problem areas like breakouts or dark circles. The other repeated con was that, while skin tones might have been balanced, the skin’s pH was not.
So the verdict appears to be in on finding the path to perfect blending and nearly undetectable coverage. Enjoy fooling as many friends as you can with your, “What makeup? I woke up looking this good!” look.
