Light-diffusing complex to give your skin #nofilter perfection. YES PLEASE! Finally got my hands on this inexpensive cult favorite foundation! On this review, I will be wearing the foundation for a total of 5 hours. So if you wanna know my thoughts on this foundation, let’s keep scrolling shall we?
Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation
GOODBYE PHOTO FLASHBACK: Tested Under 7 light conditions and with top smartphone models.
Clear Blue Sunlit Sky
A panel of women were tested in a controlled environment simulating seven different lighting scenarios, with professionally-applied concealer, foundation and/or powder, and took their own selfies with iPhone 6S and/or Samsung Galaxy smartphones. The majority of study participants said that the resulting picture was ‘no flashback’ or ‘flawless’ or ‘perfect’.
‘Flashback’ occurs when white particles in face makeup reflect light released by flash photography, creating a white cast in photos; eliminating these particles combats that flashback. ‘Flawless’ or ‘perfect’ represents one’s self-assessment of the picture having all the desired qualities.

The foundation came in a glass container with a spatula type applicator. It contained 30 ml of the product or 1.0 fl. oz. With 20 shades to choose from. Price $5.99 each.
Golden Beige and Soft Beige
Purchased two shades because I was not really sure if the golden beige would match my skin. On natural light, the Soft beige seemed to be quite yellow but once exposed to natural light, it came off a little bit pink. On the other hand, the Golden Beige had the most yellow undertone from my local drugstore. It was really a challenge to pick up shades because they were always out of stock on shelves.
Started with a clean face then primed to make the foundation last longer.
I opted to use the Golden Beige instead since the Soft Beige was too light for me. I applied the foundation with a sponge to evenly cover my skin. The formula of the foundation was creamy and blendable. It had a typical foundation scent and does set quickly once applied to skin. It had a powdery finish but not totally matte so I had to set it with powder especially on my T-zone. The coverage was light and buildable to medium. My blemish spots were covered as well as the red patches. It did cling to some of my dry patches though.
On flash photo, the foundation did great although I noticed the foundation oxidizing making it look a bit “pink” on me.
Okay so now finally do you guys see what I mean by “pink”? It looked really light on my skin! I almost thought that the shade was perfect for me but apparently, I should have gone a shade darker than Golden Beige. Indoors my face looks pretty awesome considering the fact that it stayed on despite the cali’s heat! I did not oil up as much which is another plus. Now I can see why this foundation is a cult favorite!
What I like:
-No flash on photos.
-Affordable at $5.99
-Long lasting. It didn’t fade despite the my skin sweating like crazy.
-Lightweight and natural finish
What I don’t like:
-Oxidizes to pink!
That’s all for today’s post! Thanks for stopping by! Until the next one!
