Ahava Light Foundation

2011-11-02 12.17.32.jpg


I've been wearing the Ahava Light Foundation on/off for almost 4 weeks now. I really had no expectation for it's consistency or formulation. I don't really wear mineral makeup so I didn't have much to compare this foundation to expect for my everyday foundation, MAC's Studio Fix Fluid (currently in NC20). I have come to adore this foundation! When I first wore it, I squeezed a small dot out onto my finger tips and began smoothing it over my skin, all over my face. It feels amazingly smooth, almost airy. It applies like butter, it doesn't streak or smear, it's literally a pleasure to apply. I've applied it with a paddle foundation brush and stippling brush, I prefer the stippling brush because it's quicker to blend into my skin - the paddle brush created a more medium to full coverage.

What I love most about this foundation is that it lasts all day and all night. At about half way through my day, the foundation and coverage begins to look even better than when I applied it in the morning. It begins to melt in with the natural oils in my skin and almost looks like my-skin-but-better! By night time, my skin looks glowy, fresh, supple, all the amazing good things you wish you foundations would actually do for you! I was utterly shocked that I could love it when first applied, and then love it even more 6hrs later! Another fantastic quality, when it begins to fade away after 10+hrs of wearing, it doesn't fade away in a splotchy type of way, like many liquid foundations can do. It begins to just fade into your skin, leaving you with a sheer coverage but still making your skin look alive.

I've worn this foundation on its own majority of the time. A couple times I used the Ahava Compact Powder just to mattify and add more coverage, but I truly do prefer to wear this Light Foundation on its own.

I meant to get a photo of my skin after 8hrs of wear - but being a mommy means when I'm tired at the end of the day - the last thing I want to do is photograph myself ;) But trust is looks just like the last photo of my face, but glowy and perfect!
