Today I am going to share with you a review of the EX1 Invisiwear Foundation. If you follow me on Instagram (follow here), I posted a picture of this foundation 18 weeks ago (Instagram told me so), telling you guys I would do a review of it… well 18 weeks passed and I’m now on my second bottle, so I thought I should really do a review this time. Keep reading for a review and demo on this foundation.
EX1 Invisiwear Foundation Review+Demo
What it is:
“Say hello to a flawless complexion with EX1 Cosmetics Invisiwear Liquid Foundation. This lightweight foundation is specially formulated for Asian, Middle/Far-Eastern or Mediterranean complexions, and is enriched with light diffusers to cleverly detract light away from lines, wrinkles and blemishes. Formulated with ‘true colour’ pigments, it blends perfectly with your skin tone, creating a natural, skin-on-skin effect.
The non pore clogging formula is 100% oil and fragrance free, making it suitable for even the most sensitive of complexions. Smooth and velvety, this luxurious foundation will banish imperfections to leave you with even, clear and radiant skin.”
I like the packaging a lot! I love that it has a pump for easy use, and the copper details give it a nice chic look. I will say I keep my makeup in a drawer, so this foundation has to lay down, and I noticed when the product started getting low it was pretty hard to get out of the bottle and I still have some left from my first bottle that just will not come out. Not a deal breaker though.
Price & Where to Buy:
Right now this foundation is $18.87 but I swear that changes every time I look at it. Both times I’ve bought it I paid $15. It is only available on lookfantastic.com (a UK beauty site) and they always have some coupon code and FREE shipping worldwide! I’ve only had one issue where my order got lost, but after contacting them they expedited another one.
This foundation is a lightweight flawless looking coverage that actually covers what you don’t want seen but still lets your skin breathe. You won’t look or feel cakey at all, it won’t feel heavy or greasy. It’s just a really nice finish. I have really oily skin and this lasts on me for a long time before I need to blot. This foundation looks really great in pictures, so it’s perfect for events where you may have your picture taken a lot, or if you just like to take those selfies! :)
As you read above this foundation is geared towards Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean skin, and you are probably looking at me and thinking I’m not any of those, but I do have some yellow undertones in my skin. If you have olive or yellow undertones this may be a great foundation for you, if you are a really fair with pink undertones unfortunately it won’t work. The color choice is pretty limited with only 5 shades.
Sorry the lighting is a little different in some of these pictures, I think my neon shirt was throwing it off. :)
I’ve already moisturized and primed my face (post on that soon), and have done my eye makeup as well.
I apply 1 1/2 pumps of the foundation onto a Sigma F80 (holy grail brush for me).
I dot the foundation onto my face before buffing it in.
Start buffing in the foundation all over the face with the F80.
Foundation is all on, if you want more coverage you could go back in with another coat. I typically keep it at one coat.
I applied the rest of my makeup and as you can see it gives a flawless finish and looks really great in pictures. For reference I am currently the lightest shade which is F100, I started wearing this last summer and I was F200.
I absolutely love this foundation, if I didn’t I wouldn’t have purchased it twice. It really looks flawless on the skin without being heavy. I have been asked several times when I’m wearing this what foundation I use. I wish this was formulated for more skin tones because it is such a gorgeous finish, but not everyone will be able to wear it. I highly recommend this to anyone with olive or yellow skin tones though! I can see this being a staple in my makeup collection for years to come!
