I am a big fan of Doll 10 makeup and I know I keep saying this, but really QVC needs to give them more hour shows (and a Today's Special Value) but back to my review.
Here is how the Doll 10 HydraGel Foundation is described on QVC.com:
"A breakthrough in the world of complexion, Doll 10's HydraGel Foundation provides weightless, full-coverage foundation that instantly smoothes visual imperfections. High-density pure pigments are suspended in an exclusive gel formula, while soft-focus microspheres help transform your complexion and create a more radiant-looking finish. From Doll 10 Beauty."
I like mostly everything about this foundation. The one thing I am not crazy about is it does not contain SPF. But the way this product performs, that is not a deal breaker for me since I wear the SuperGoop SPF50 under my makeup 365 days a year anyway.
This foundation is beautiful. The color of the actual foundation comes out a bit darker than the color of the bottle. A little goes a long way and it is buildable coverage. I can actually get pretty full coverage with this alone! I took a picture mid makeup applying to show. The only makeup on my face in the picture below (aside from the obvious mascara) is a clear primer and this foundation:
Having highly acne prone skin, I was extremely concerned that the silicones in this foundation would cause break outs. I am thrilled to report they did not!!
The finish is very natural- not overly dewy but also not extremely matte, I like to set it with a powder to help control my shine, which has been extreme lately thanks to the heat. It applies very effortlessly and smoothly and I get an even quicker application using Doll 10's blendsmart brush. That brush is not included but they do include another great super soft, excellent brush with the foundation on QVC.
It wears over the primer a good 7 hours before I felt the need to touch up a bit. I think when the weather cools down and I don't sweat as much, it may even wear longer. It feels like I have nothing on my skin and I am impressed how it covers some redness and my sun freckles before even applying concealer. Even before applying the rest of my makeup, it gives my skin this awesome airbrush effect.
Here is my full face of using mostly Doll 10 makeup today:
Here is the rest of what I'm wearing:
-Finishing Touch Blending Powder
-Blush & Go blush, highlight & lip gloss in shade "Love At First Site"
-Cheek to Chic Blush & Contour Palette- "Sculpted" contour shade ton contour & "Glow" Highlighter over dark circles and under brows. "Shady Lady" shade as eyeshadowlid color. This palette is coming to their site soon.
-Conceal It Concealer in shade LIGHT
-Brow Fix in shade BLONDE
I also used the blendsmart brushes to apply foundation, powder and blush. If you missed my review on this amazing beauty tool- check it out here.
I already was a big fan of the Hydro Drops foundation by Doll 10. I ran out of it a while ago so I can't direct compare but I think as much as I liked that one, I like this one even better because of how lightweight it feels on my skin but still does an excellent job covering!
You can find this right now on QVC here.
I hope it also comes to the Doll 10 site soon.
Speaking of the Doll 10 site, I found a promo code for 30% off I wanted to share!!! You can use code "IPSY30" to save 30% on any Doll 10 purchase!!! I highly suggest trying the Conceal It Concealer, CC Powder (which I need to get more of) and any Doll 10 lippie. Doll 10 lippies are some of my absolutely favorites! Happy Shopping!
