Hello beauty junkies!
I want to tell you about professional makeup.
At first, I want to write a review to all those people who are like me. You see, before purchasing this palette, I was looking for the reviews of this Cinema Secret Ultimate Foundation 5 in 1 Pro Palette. There’s some info on the internet but not much.
I bought this palette for my job. It’s a discovery for a makeup artist, who doesn’t want to carry around a thousand different vials.
The palette isn’t big at first sight and it might even look like there isn’t much product in there but it’ll go a very long way and will quickly outweigh the costs, I bet. All in all, there are 12g in the palette and each refill offers 2.5g.
The palette consists of 5 shades, which range from fair to dark.
In fact, there are 6 shade options available from the collection:
100 - deep red undertones
200 - medium to deep golden olive undertones
300 - light to medium yellow-beige undertones
400 - medium peach beige undertones
500A - light to medium pink-beige undertones
500B - medium to deep pink-beige undertones.
I decided to take the risk and bought the palette in the shade 500А for my job because it’s seemed to be the most flattering for my clients. Besides I can always mix some shades together for a unique color combination.
500А is a rather fair palette, which also offers pink-toned shades. And thanks to that beige color, the pink tone doesn’t stand out that much.
Let’s have a thorough look at each shade - from the fairest to the deepest. I tried to find the official description of every color, but didn’t manage to do so.
501-11 is the fairest here:
505-31 is the darkest in this palette:
The foundation is pretty thick, so I only need the tiniest bit for the entire face.
Bloggers suggest buying a special makeup spray along with this palette, which is Moisture+spray Hydrating for dry skin and Super Sealer Mattifying setting spray for a more oily skin type.
And of course, I bought these sprays as well, because I don’t know how to get by without them. The spray is a need here for a less problematic blending because the texture is so thick that it’s tricky to blend out well, especially over dry skin.
I also tried applying it with the MAC Prep+Prime Fix+ and can say that it also performs well.
The official site informs that this foundation flatters all skin types and it’s long-wearing.
It’s true. The product matches everyone, regardless of age or skin type, if you apply it right.
I applied the shades 503-29:
So, I do it the following way. I take up a little bit of the formula, warm it up between my fingers and then apply in on the back of my hand with a brush.
This amount it usually enough:
I also spritz the face with a spray afterwards and start applying the foundation with dabbing motions using a brush. After I’ve done the foundation, I spritz the spray once again and blend out the coverage this time using circular motions. You can see the product coverage from the photo.
I used the same product to apply over my under eye skin as well.
There’s one disappointing con about this foundation. You see, it settles into the pores. So, if you have a pore minimizer in your stash, then I highly recommend you using it as well.
Have a nice beauty shopping day and stay inspired for gorgeous makeups.
