Black Up Matifying Foundation Review

RRP £27

I must be the only person, who hadn't until recently heard of Black Up. Black Up was founded in 1999 and are aimed at women of colour, although they do say that they cater to all skin types and tones.

I was persuaded by the girlie's in my office to check them out. Based on their recommendation I trotted down to the nearest department store to see what all the fuss was about.

It was a particularly hot day, so I was looking for a light foundation with staying power. The lovely lady at the counter recommended I try the Matifying Foundation.

I was really surprised by the texture it felt like satin with a hint of oil moisturiser. This worried me as I expected it to make my skin look and feel greasy. To my delight it was more satin and less grease.

Applying the product was a breeze it went on my skin really well and didn't at all feel heavy. I was super impressed when it managed to stay put all day. I've been using it off and on for a few weeks now and can genuinely say I'm impressed.

The only down fall I've seen so far has been with the packaging. It looks incredibly sleek and is a good size. However the pump is a little difficult to get going as it takes several firm presses to build up the pressure for the product to flow. To be fair I'm probably being picky as it's a great foundation.

So I'm a Black Up convert! I'll definitely be trying out more of their products.

Have any of you not been living under a rock (unlike me) and hear of Black Up? I'd love to hear about the products you've used and what you thought of them.
