Sales blurb:
A 10-piece light weight palette that comes in light-to-medium and medium-to-deep sets. SACHA’s Cream-to-Powder foundations transform from an easy-to-apply cream to a micro-fine powder upon application to enhance your natural beauty. This light-weight formula provides medium coverage with natural sun protection. Recommended for normal/ oily/ combination skin types.

+ Great shade range for medium to dark tones. Sacha do carry lighter shades in the light to medium palette. I find that the lightest shades are a little too yellow for very fair caucasian skin. This can easily be remedied by applying a small amount of dark peach or orange colour corrector underneath foundation.

+ Highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. Either apply with a damp sponge or damp foundation brush. If using a brush, use the smallest brush you can get away with. That way you’ll apply sparingly and only where you need it, for a more natural skin finish. I tend to use my Real Techniques setting brush with this foundation.

+Longwear of up to 18 hours. This was tried and tested by me and it really lasted beautifully all day and late into the night.

+Natural SPF due to Titanium Dioxide. Usually I hate Titanium Dioxide in foundation as you often get an awful ghostly pale flashback effect. Oddly enough there is no flashback with this foundation. Here are a few pictures to prove it.

Price vs quantity is an issue. RRP is $80 (circa £51) and it’s not full sizes of each shade. If buying a single shade, you pay $30 (circa £20) for 10.7g/ 0.37oz (full size).

Yay or nay 
YAY!
If you’re a pro make-up artist working on women of colour regularly, then this palette (medium to dark) is definitely worth buying. Sacha Cosmetics also offer a 20% pro discount upon application.

If you’re a regular make-up wearer then buy a sampler pack to determine your shade. Once you know your shade, I recommend that you buy the $30 full size cream to powder foundation. You won’t get enough usage out of all the shades in the palette and there is a smaller volume of each shade in the palette compared to the full size foundation.

If you want more shades for contouring & highlighting, then keep an eye out for my forthcoming review of the Sacha Cosmetics contouring palettes.
