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 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.
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.”
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.
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.
