First thing’s first:Edward Bess, Thank you dearly for inventing the most perfect purse, foundation/concealer/powder all in one, magical compact. TY xoxo
Also- It needs to be said, I hate the word compact. It’s so old lady or even working girl sounding. Not stripper working girl, like 80’s hair, chewing gum receptionist, working girl sounding. Sorry I’m not sorry.
Lets get to it- the product:
Edward Bess Flawless Illusion Foundation with Brush
ALL OF A SUDDEN THE CLOUDS PARTED AND A BEAM OF LIGHT DIRECTED ME TO A CORNER OF THE QVC STORE WHERE EDWARD BESS AND HIS MAGICAL FOUNDATION
SO, um, yea I walked by it, touched it, saw the retractable brush with lid (impressed) and then swiped it on the bacl of my hnd and thought, shit- this is nicely pigmented, and not oily or chalky, actually, it feels kinda perfect- holy crap and this color really matches me. This is the point where I considered flagging the QVC chick and asking her to put every last one they had on this credit card immediately. Kinda kidding but not really.
I don’t own anything by Edward Bess, how is this? I had heard of the line, seen it in a beauty blog here and there and on Bergdorf and Neimans beauty sections. But nothing ever made it into my stash- until now. Thanks QVC. So NOW my biggest concern is it being discontinued (thats just how i work), so please Edward Bess, don’t do it unless you make it better, which would involve it giving me perfect skin without the product, But whats the fun in that, and this stuff is actually kinda fun to put on. You swirl the brush in the
compact (shit we really need another word), foundation, and buff it into your skin. I actually use it as my concealer too. Another star next to this product from me. Doubles as a concealer and eliminates shine? I’m feeling weak.
There are 5, so not a ton, but don’t fret, the shades are totally universal, seriously. I used it the day after I purchased on a friend that really doesn’t have my skin tone at all- and it was some kind of magic, because it totally worked, like, she looked good (wink, wink babe)
TO PURCHASE ON QVC
I’ll sign off with this- this product IS a foundation which is nothing to be afraid of. The brush makes for super easy application, which is why i think many people shy away from foundation, fear of applying incorrectly. What I am trying to say is, this is not a bb cream or a tinted moisturizer but guess what- those are foundations too, kind of.. ones that you apply with your hands.
If you are like me and accepting of products with good coverage, and are constantly searching for a perfect travel buddy aka purse
compact foundation/concealer/miracle flawless face creator.. this one might be for you. It most definitely was a game changer for me. And if you are wondering, YES, I did buy two – one for my vanity and one for my purse.
This product truley lives up to Edward’s passion for making the world a more beautiful place, one woman at a time, and more specifically, lies at the heart of his “less is more” approach to beauty.
