Pros: Makes your skin look great.
Cons: I honestly can't find a one.
I want you to know that I have betrayed my Elizabeth Arden Sponge On Cream Makeup Flawless Finish Vanilla. About six months, ago, I purchased Avon Beyond Color Skin Smoothing Compact Foundation. The main reason is, I wanted a mirror for my purse. I had never even tried the foundation until a month ago when I ran out of my Elizabeth Arden foundation. I wasn't sure that the color I had would even match.
The Avon Beyond Color Skin Smoothing Compact Foundation comes in a silver like box and when opened, you see an oval shaped silver like compact which is plastic with the Avon Logo in gold on the lid.
On the side front of the compact is a button that you push and the lid opens so easily and reveals the mirror and the foundation. You then lift up on the button and the foundation pan lifts up and there is a round sponge in the bottom. This is wonderful because you aren't always dropping the sponge on the floor when you want to check your makeup.
The Avon Beyond Color Skin Smoothing Compact Foundation is a nice creamy foundation and has a lot better coverage than a liquid. While this doesn't go on sheer, it doesn't go on like a glob of pancake mix either. Its very smooth and there is no scent. You can go heavy or light, whatever your choice. Just gently slide the sponge over the makeup and put on your face. It goes on smooth and so easy. Never looks fake, and covers well without making you look overly made up. You skin feels so smooth and looks so good after you put the Avon Beyond Color Skin Smoothing Compact Foundation.
The Avon Beyond Color Skin Smoothing Compact Foundation keeps you skin well moisturized and feeling so soft, all day long.
I am using the color nude, which is a great match for me. If I can't see the makeup in person, I usually have a hard time getting a great match, but not this time. It seemed the color, in the book, was pretty close.
There seems to be a shade for every skin color.
Almond (N), Cream (N), Porcelain (W)
Beautiful Bronze (W), Mahogany (N), Toffee (W)
Bisque (W), Ivory (C), Nude (N)
Buff (N), Honey (W), Warmest Beige (N)
After using the Avon Beyond Color Skin Smoothing Compact Foundation for a month, I find that my skin looks alive and has some actual color to it, not that inside florescent light color, but natural, healthy color.
The Avon Beyond Color Skin Smoothing Compact Foundation doesn't settle into the fine lines, it seems to smooth them out instead. Your skin looks wonderful when using alone or with a loose powder. To me, this is one marvelous product and it won't break the budget. Get a couple when they go on sale and always have one on hand.
