Beauty Buzz | Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation

IMG_9761

I’m so excited to finally bring you my review of the new Kjaer Weis Foundation! I’ve been getting so many requests to do a full review. This was a long awaited launch. I know many of us we were biting our nails waiting for the debut. When I first heard that Kjaer Weis would be coming out with a foundation I knew that I had to try it. I’m a huge fan of their products. I have reviewed their Sensuous Plum Lip Tint as well as featured them in many Green Beauty Makeup Looks.

The Kjaer Weis Foundation contains Sweet Almond Seed, Coco, and Jojoba oils which make it very moisturizing but not greasy. I know the price of this foundation can be a little steep for some and I do understand that. It’s not easy to spend nearly $70 on a foundation that you’re not sure is going to do what it promises. I have been asked constantly, “but is it worth the price?”, my answer is always “absolutely.” Everything I’ve tried from Kjaer Weis has exceeded my expectations and this foundation is no exception. This foundation is now my new holy grail foundation!

The entire line of Kjaer Weis products is not only exquisite in the formulations, but the brilliant colors and the luxurious packing are really sparking a cult following. I admit it, I’m addicted. When you hold the jewelry like compact in your hands and twist it open to reveal the content, you’ll agree with me. There is nothing like it on the market! One of the greatest things about this foundation is that it looks like you are not wearing any foundation on your skin. It’s honestly quite magical.

Also, the design of refill packaging is genius. Once you purchase the compact you can then just buy the refills as  needed. This is a great money saving solution as well a great eco-friendly option.

The Color:

My color is the lightest shade, “Like Porcelain” which Kristen Kjaer Weis describes as being “Perfect for a fair, rosy complexion, Like Porcelain refines even the most sensitive, delicate skin.”

Here I am wearing the Kjaer Weis Foundation in “Like Porcelain”

The Application:

You can apply this foundation with fingers, a beauty blender, the Kjaer Weis Foundation Brush. I personally like to apply the foundation first with the Kjaer Weis Foundation Brush where needed and then blend out using a damp Beauty Blender. I also prep my face with a moisturizer and if my skin is feeling particularly dry, a little oil or primer and then set with rosewater spray.

The Finish:

I have very dry skin and I have heard mixed reviews with this foundation concerning the finish. Some say it is drying while others say it is moisturizing. I personally find it to be a satin finish. It goes on creamy and then settles into a beautiful satin finish. This foundation doesn’t feel drying on my skin at all. With that said I always moisturize before applying foundation and if you have super dry skin I would recommend applying a primer beforehand. My favorite primer is Vapour Organic Beauty Stratus Instant Skin Perfector.

Ingredients:

prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) seed oil*, caprylic/capric triglyceride, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil*, zea mays (corn) starch*, cera alba*, copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax*,  simmondsia chinensis  (jojoba) seed oil*,  polyglyceryl-3 diisostearate, non-gmo tocopheryl acetate.  may contain + / – : mica,  ci 77891,  ci 77491,  ci 77492,  ci 77499. *Certified Organic. This product is gluten-free.

  1. Okay, now it has your seal of approval I feel like I can go for it haha

    Mayah x

  2. It looks great on you! Do you have blush on? If so, what shade is it?

  3. Where can you buy it? Looks amazing!

  4. It looks great! I was looking forward to your review on this product. I have really dry/sensitive skin as well. Its great to hear that it works well on that skin type.

    • I also have super sensitive and dry skin and this really does work wonderfully with my skin. It’s never irritated my skin or made me break out. I highly recommend it for sensitive skin types!

  5. So how does it compare to RMS? In terms of coverage, finish and moisture?

  6. The packaging is out of this world!

  7. Julia O'Brien says:

    I have been wanting to try it since it came out but I am nervous because of the coconut oil. The RmS beauty uncoverup did not work for me at all because of the coconut oil content. Any words of advice?

    • Hi Julia!

      Many people who have had problems with the coconut from the un cover up have not found an issue with the kjaer weis because the coconut oil is not the first ingredient like it is in the un cover up. Is your concern breakouts or something else?

      • Julia O'Brien says:

        Yes breakouts, hormonal cystic one’s, brought on by post-pregnancy and extended breastfeeding hormonal craziness. Good to hear that a lot of people have had luck with the KW foundation.

    • My concern as well … all my skincare is focused towards taming my sensitivity and blemishes and I’m petrified it would break me out!

  8. I’m tempted! This one looks so wonderful on you…
    I have very dry skin too and like a devo, natural finish, I was considering Vapour luminous foundation… How do the two compare?

  9. Can’t wait to try it! Would love to see a video of how you apply it.

  10. I have this and love it too. Great coverage, but natural. Do you follow up with a powder?

    I’m really glad you did a review on this! My skin is fair like yours, but do you have a pink or yellow undertone? The foundation looks great on you! My undertone is yellow, and I’ve heard that the Kjaer Weis foundations are best suited for those who have a pink undertone. I really want to try it out though…

  13. It looks flawless on you! The texture really intrigues me and I would love to try it. Judging from the swatch on your finger it does really look like a satin finish. I have medium olive skin though so I don’t think the colors would suit me very well. I hope they come out with new shades!

  14. This brand is new to me. Based on the ingredients it seems very moisturizing. I like how it looks on your photo.

  15. Great review, Britanie! I’ve been using the foundation this week and I have the same thoughts. I have really oily skin, though, so it’s a testament to how versatile and adaptive this foundation is!

  16. Loved the review! I currently use the RMS “un-coverup” in 22 and it is running out soon.
    I love the “un-coverup” but I might try something new. Should I try the lightest shade for this foundation?

  17. Oh it looks beautiful<3 And so do you! :) xx

  18. Do you feel it performs well in covering redness?
