Complexion, Etsy, Reviews - November 25th, 2011
I am in need of a new foundation, so I decided to try a new company (new to me and new in general): Pumpkin & Poppy Cosmetics. The color range is small, but looking at the shades I figured I’d get a match from at least one of them. Result? Success!
The shop offers a sample set for foundation with your choice of three shades for $2.75. Each sample contains a teaspoon of product, which is more than enough for several applications. I chose Rice Paper, Creamy Peach, and Cashew. Rice Paper is too light for sure, but Creamy Peach and Cashew are both about the right tone. Creamy Peach is the best match out of the three and I’ll be getting a full size of this one.
I really like the formula. The one I have been using has silica in it, so I was looking for a replacement that contained silica as well. This one does! It has a really nice silky texture, buffs on evenly, and is definitely full coverage. It doesn’t cake into my wrinkles though, yay! It wears well, no fading or weird unevenness.
My order shipped very quickly, and arrived well packaged in a padded mailer. The samples were labeled with ingredients, and my order included an invoice. The presentation is well done.
Overall, I’m looking forward to switching to this foundation and also trying other products from the shop.
