Sponsored Review: DrGL Foundation All Skin Types

I'm not sure if you guys know this, but foundation is never part of my daily makeup routine. Simply because, I do not like how heavy/thick foundation feels on my skin, and two, I don't need much coverage at all. Even when I go for my photoshoots, I don't use foundation too. I either use a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream. So it's a peculiar thing really, that I decided to accept this product for a review. Somehow, it roused my curiousity. And I think it's because of the brand.

If you don't know, DrGL is a range of custom skincare personally formulated for Asian skin types and climates by Dr Georgia Lee. So, of course I had to try it!

"DrGL All Skin Types foundation is a liquid foundation with an elegant texture that glides smoothly over your face for a soft and dewy finish. Pores and lines seem to disappear instantly and skin looks like it's lit from within. Also provides skincare and sun protection benefits so skin not only looks better but actually gets better."

When I took the bottle out, the first thing that came to my mind was that I thought it kinda resembled nail polish. And so, imagine my surprise when I unscrewed the cap and out popped a wand. I really wasn't expecting that haha.

So you either just dab it on your face and then blend from there, or dab it on your fingertips and blend. Whatever suits your fancy. :)

Do you see the difference? The part where you hardly see any lines, yeap that's where the foundation is. It pretty much erased all the lines on my hand. I swear I didn't photoshop the lines away, in case you were wondering! Imagine what it can do to the visible lines and pores on your face (if you have them). Sounds good yes?

Here's how it looks like on my skin after a 3 hour photoshoot and 2 hours in the sun/heat. I know it's not really clear (because it's bright behind me) but it stayed on fine! I like how it didnt feel too heavy on my skin and how smooth it makes my skin feels. I have one grouse though, that it's not really in my shade. I was given medium and it's a tad dark for my skin tone. I'm quite fair to begin with, but I think I should be able to work around that - by wearing it to my shoots since makeup tends to get a little washed out under the studio's harsh lights. 

The foundation is retailing at $98 and you get more information about the product (if you would like to) from the website here.
