G’morning, ladies! How was your night?
SIDE NOTE: Okay, I have to ask: did you watch Glee? OMG, right? The shizz hit the fan!
Oh! A few of you asked about the foundation I wore in Monday’s office holiday party look. Well, it’s my new (although the product itself has been around for a while) foundation favorite, DuWop Foundation of Youth ($38).
I discovered it some time last spring but sorta forgot about it for months, oops (makeup ADD)!
When I noticed it sitting on my counter last week, I remembered how much I liked it.
Do you ever do that? — completely forget about products that you actually loved, only to remember how much you loved them many months or years later?
I’m so glad we reconnected, though, because I’d forgotten just how natural it feels on my skin and how beautifully it photographs (takes very well to the flash).

What do I love about Foundation of Youth? Let’s see…
- Its sheer-to-medium, buildable coverage feels light, and my skin can still breathe with it on
- It doesn’t settle into my fine lines (HALLELUJAR!)
- Imparts a lovely, subtle glow
- Color that lasts all day
- The moisturizing formula doesn’t aggravate my combination dry/oily skin
- Has a natural, semi-matte finish
But nothing’s perfect (not even makeup), and the product comes in just six different shades (I have Beige). If I remember correctly, the colors lean a little toward yellow, so girls with red undertones may not be able to find their perfect match.
As for the funky brush-ish thing-a-ma-bob attached to the tube, yeah, it’s annoying as all hell. I’d love to see a version of the product come in a glass bottle with a pump (and maybe while DuWop’s working on the bottle/pump, they could bring down the $38 price!).
Despite having a few negatives, Foundation of Youth is still one of the best foundations I’ve tried in recent years. Next time you’re strolling through Sephora, think about giving it a try.
