Review*: MeMeMe Flawless Finish Cream Foundation

Friday, November 28, 2014

Hello ladies,
last month I was lucky enough to receive a package from MeMeMe and now it's time to do some reviewing of the products I got.

Pozdravljene punce, 
v novembru sem kot ena izmed blogerk imela možnost sodelovanja s podjetjem MeMeMe in Mojo Drogerijo in danes je na vrsti ocena njihove Flawless Finish Cream tekoče podlage v odtenku 02 Beige Blush. 




I got two products in the package; their Flawless Finish Cream Foundation in the shade 02 Beige Blush and a Long Wear Satin Lip Cream in Chara Tuscan Red (review coming next week).
It all came nicely packaged in a sleek black box with a little note that said 'Free Spirits Only!'
I currently own only one MeMeMe product that I got from Moja Drogerija last year; their Eye Inspire Baked eyeshadow in Fire eyes (here) and I quite like that one, so of course I was very excited to try some more MeMeMe products.






















The first thing that popped to my mind when I saw this foundation was; I'm in love with the bottle.
It looks so sleek & elegant, and although the bottle isn't made out of glass, it feels very well made. The matte black lid and all the details make it look so classy and elegant, but I did noticed that the lid gets dirty quite fast.
It also comes with a pump, which works great. One full pump dispenses too much product, but since the pump is really easy to work with you can easily get out just the right amount of product.
You get 30 ml in the bottle and it expires in a year.

Že na prvi pogled sem se zaljubila v samo embalažo tekoče podlage; kljub temu, da steklenička ni narejena iz stekla izgleda zelo elegantno, prefinjeno in kvalitetno. 
Vsebuje tudi priročno pumpico, ki jo je zelo lahko upravljati in lahko na ta način dobimo ravno pravo količino tekoče podlage.

















The second thing I noticed was that the foundation looked very dark in the bottle, but I was hoping it would come out lighter. I got the shade 02 Beige Blush and unfortunately, the shade really is too dark and too orange for me (You can see that on the photos below. On the left photo I'm wearing the foundation only on the right side of my face, while the left side is foundation free).
I went to investigate and I found out that there are only 4 shades in total, which is quite a downside because I'm thinking that a lot of girls would probably have to mix different shades to get the perfect one. 
Now before I tell you my experience with this foundation, I would like to tell you what MeMeMe is saying about it: A long lasting satin finish velvet cream foundation. Rich in microspheres and light-absorbing pigments to deliver a smooth, even and revitalised complexion. Hydrating enriched formula with antioxidants and SPF 15 to give your skin essential environmental protection. 
It also claims to be for all skin types and have a medium coverage.

Naslednja stvar, ki sem jo opazila je bila, da odtenek v sami embalaži izgleda zelo temno. Odtenek 02 Beige Blush se je tudi ob samem nanosu na žalost izkazal kot pretemen in preveč oranžen odtenek za mojo polt.


Truth be told, testing out this foundation wasn't an easy task because I couldn't really leave the house with it, so I had to make sure I wasn't supposed to be anywhere on the days I was wearing it.
The consistency itself is quite thick yet creamy, and I can't smell any noticeable scents. Although the consistency is one the thicker side, I hadn't had any problems applying it. It applied nicely with a brush, with Real Techniques Miracle complexion sponge and with my fingers. 
I would definitely agree on the claim that it has a medium coverage. It evened out my skin tone, concealed the redness, but it didn't cover a few pimples that I had. I also noticed that it didn't cling to a few dry patches that I had around my nose and mouth due to a cold.
I also really like the semi matte finish that it has, and it feels really nice & smooth on the skin, not heavy at all, which is a problem I have with a lot of foundations.
I was quite surprised by this because I didn't expect it to be so lightweight since it comes out quite thick.
I also wanted to see how it would perform if I didn't use a setting powder with it as I always do.
So one day I decided to set only half of my face with a powder and leave the other one with only this foundation. I noticed that the foundation started to settle into my fine lines after around 3 hours, the redness started poking out on my cheeks and my T-zone started to get quite greasy, while the powdered side still looked exactly the same as when I applied it. 
At the end of the day the non-powdered side was extremely greasy and the foundation looked quite faded, but on the powdered side only my T-zone looked a bit shiny. 
I can definitely see that this foundation could work with any skin type, you would just need to set it with a powder if you have a combination/oily skin like me.

Zaradi pretemnega odtenka je bilo testiranje te tekoče podlage dokaj zahtevno, a vendar nisem želela da bi mi napačen odtenek onemogočil, da tekočo podlago dodobra preiskusim.
Tekoča podlaga je dokaj gosta, a zelo kremasta in se brez problema nanaša tako s prsti, kot s čopičem ali z gobico.
Lepo izenači ten kože, prekrije rdečico in se ne ''obesi'' na suhe madeže na obrazu. Opazila pa sem, da ne prekrije nekaterih mozoljev, tako da bi se definitivno strinjala, da ima ta tekoča podlaga srednjo prekrivnost.
Ima semi-mat finiš, občutek na obrazu pa je zelo prijeten saj mi tekoča podlaga ne deluje niti malo ''težko'' in ob testiranju nisem imela občutka, da na obrazu nosim tekočo podlago.
Ker imam mešano/mastno kožo sem opazila, da moram ob tej tekoči podlagi definitivno uporabiti tudi matirajoči puder v kamnu, saj tekoča podlaga drugače ne zdrži skozi celoten dan.

Here's a shade comparison between all the foundations I own.


Although the shade isn't a match for my current pale skin, I actually really like the foundation itself. I like the finish it gives, how it looks and more importantly, how lightweight it feels on my face. I'm sure I'll get more use out of it in the warmer months when my face gets a bit of colour. 
You can get this foundation on the MeMeMe site for £12,50 or on Moja Drogerija for 18,79€.

Kljub temu, da je sam odtenek pretemen za mojo svetlo polt, mi je sama formula in izgled tekoče podlage zelo všeč. Zaenkrat bo morala počivati v predalu, svojo drugo priložnost, da me navduši pa bo dobila poleti. 

Have you tried this foundation? What did you think about it?

    1. Ti povem, da mi je na žalost tudi tisti odtenek čisto mimo :/
      A res? Jaz sem pa mislila, da mi bo pretežka, ampak se mi je presenetljivo lepo ''vsedla'' na kožo.

  2. Očitno smo dobile vse isti odtenek in kot sem videla na strani, obstaja še en svetlejši odtenek, tako da me sploh ne čudi, da mi je pretemen. Na meni, ki imam normalno kožo, se je ok obnesel tudi, če nisem nanesla pudra v prahu čez njega, tako da mi je res škoda, da je tako temen, ker drugače mi je kar všeč.

    1. Res je škoda, da je tako temen ja. Čeprav sem pa na nekaterih slikah gledala za ta svetlejši odtenek in se mi zdi, da bi mi pa tisti znal biti presvetel. Ne vem no :)

  3. Looks so nice on the skin :)

  4. Mogoče bo to zvenelo malo žleht, ampak v čem je fora, da podjetje pošlje/podari pretemen puder? Če odtenek ni ustrezen je zelo težko res dobro ocenit puder. Meni to pokaže kako nihče v tem podjetju ni pregledal bloga dlje od koliko sledilcev nekdo ima. But hey, that's just me. Še vedno sem malo našpičena zaradi odtenka Catrice-vega Velveta, so forgive me for my outburts. Drugače puder po teksturi zveni v redu in kljub napačnemu odtenku si dobro spisala tole :)

    1. Ne, sej v bistvu si čisto prav napisala. Se mi zdi, da se tudi ne bi nič zamudili s tem, da bi recimo napisali mail in povprašali po odtenku. Drugače pa tudi mislim, da če bi malo samo razmišljali, bi lahko vedeli, da nas je večina tu bolj svetlih :D
      Drugače pa hvala, nisem hotela, da bi mi napačn odtenek vse pokvaril, ker mi je puder drugače res ok :)

    2. Se moram strinjati z vama, da je zelo težko testirat, če ti odtenek ne ustreza (in zoprno, da potem izdelek stoji na polici, ker ti je neuporaben), je pa tudi res, da vzame ogromno časa, da preveriš vse bloge ali da se dogovarjaš individualno. Meni je vredno, zato vas vedno prosim za vaše želje, je pa res, da si moram rezervirati minimalno 1 pisarniški dan, da vse uredim in da vsaka res dobi tisto, kar je napisala. Izgleda malo, ampak je res veliko dela... Bom pa za naslednjič prosila, če se lahko vnaprej dogovorimo za odtenke in da vam ti žal niso ustrezali, brez problema prevzamem to delo nase, samo da res dobite izdelke, ki vam bodo ustrezali.

    3. Jaz tudi tebe čisto razumem, da vzame veliko časa, sploh ker nas ni tako malo. Ampak zdaj tako mislim, da se bo vedelo, da rabimo verjetno vse najsvetlejši odtenek :D
      Drugače bo pa pri meni tale odtenek definitivno uporaben poleti, samo malo bo moral še počivati v predalu :D

  5. I've tried this but sadly it didn't work with my combination skin, just looked way too greasy on my t-zone even with powder :( x

    1. Oh, that's a shame. I find that it works great with the Catrice Prime & Fine mattifying powder or with the Essence All about matt loose powder.

  6. I've never heard of this foundation before. Looks good though :)

    1. I haven't heard of it before I got it either. I feel like MeMeMe brand isn't so recognisable here in Slovenia.

  7. O, škoda zaradi odtenka. Tudi mene paketek čaka doma in sem se ful veselila testiranja med prazniki, ampak ne vem, če bo zdaj kaj iz tega... Je pa res, da sem jaz malo temnejša/bolj rumena, tako da še vseeno držim pesti. :D

    1. Potem bi pa mogoče celo znal biti vsaj približno odtenek zate :D
