This was somethingI ordered on a whim, and I am so happy I did. This is supposed to be used to lighten any foundation you own if it is too dark for your skin tone. I have always wanted to pick something like this up, I looked into The Body Shop’s version of this, and the NYX one, but I last minute decided on this one. Kathleen Lights raves about this, which always heavily influences me we all know. I really wanted a product that was thin enough not to completely change the finish of feel of whatever foundation I add it to. This is both thin and crazy pigmented at the same time, and it barely changes the consistency of whatever I mix it with.

When choosing a foundation mixer, I went with white instead of a darkening one, as I tend to accidentally buy darker foundations much more often than ones that are too light. It is much easier to make a foundation a shade too light look natural (bronzer, blending, etc.) than it is to make a darker one, so having a white mixer felt neccessary. I think this would also be a great thing for make up artists to have in their kits, to help adjust their shades perfectly to all different clients.
This is pretty cheap, which is great! This is cheaper than a lot of my drugstore foundations even.
Standard, usual amount, no complaints here.
This does not really change the coverage and finish of whatever foundation I am adding it to. It might make it a tiny bit more opaque, but not in a noticeable way at all.
I haven’t notice this change the wear time of any of my foundations yet, but once I play around with it more with different foundations and concealers, I will update!
Let me know your favorite mixing products, especially if you have a darkening one, because I would love to pick one of those up next!
