When I first made the switch to vegan cosmetics, I had the hardest time finding a good foundation. Most drugstore foundations aren’t vegan and of the ones that were… Let’s just say that I was less than impressed. When I first heard about GlamNatural Hydrating Foundation, which is PETA approved as cruelty free and also vegan, I was a bit skeptical at first. So many vegan foundations had done me wrong by that point that I was near ready to throw in the towel and settle for a less-than-perfect option. However, I agreed to try it because I kept hearing amazing things. I am now SO glad that I did because this is easily one of the best foundations that I have tried, vegan or not.
GlamNatural Hydrating Foundation comes in several shades. Even though it’s sold online, the company makes it very easy to pick what shade is best for you. There is a color guide as well as descriptions. I selected the color Beige 1. Though I’m naturally pretty pale, I do love my vegan self tanner, so I made sure to pick a little darker of a shade. It matches and blends perfectly with my skin. The foundation is so smooth and easy to apply. I used it with my fingers as well as with a foundation brush and both ways of application worked well. Just like they warn you, this is a concentrated formula. It can be easy to end up with too much foundation at first because a little bit really does go a long way! I used 1 small pump of product and it gave me really great medium coverage that stayed smooth and lasted throughout the day.
Overall, I absolutely loved the GlamNatural Hydrating Foundation. Not only have they earned a customer, but I am going to be suggesting this great vegan foundation to all girls out there looking to make their cosmetics bag a little more animal friendly.
Don’t believe me about how great this stuff is? Even Total Beauty included it on their list of 12 Beauty Breakthroughs You Must Try in 2012!
