Hello lovely ladies,
We all love to attend weddings, parties or any event because it means good clothes, good food, fun, gossip and good company. But getting ready is the most difficult part, no? If you have a good makeup look, you feel confident throughout the function.
So, Today I am here to review one such amazing foundation I purchased for my sister’s wedding. Its Swiss Beauty High Coverage Waterproof Base Foundation (SB-05).
I wanted to have a really good base foundation. I searched a lot online to get the best product but I got confused which shade would actually go well with my skin. And just to avoid the shade mismatch I decided to buy it from a local beauty store. There I found this lightweight, natural matte finish and waterproof foundation by Swiss Beauty that provides medium to high coverage. It claims to be high coverage but for me, it turned out to be a little darker than my skin tone. So, I use it for medium coverage.
Product Name: Swiss Beauty High Coverage Waterproof Base Foundation (SB-05)
Shades: It has a range of 6 shades. My shade is 04 – Natural Nude.
Price & Quantity: There is no MRP mentioned anywhere. I got it for Rs. 350 only. It comes in a bottle of 60 g.
Shelf Life: 5 years (That’s’ what expiry date says!)
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, CI 77891, Mineral Oil, Ceteth-20, Macadamia, Ternifolia Seed Oil, Tocopherol, CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499, Niacinamide, Ascorbic Acid, Panthenol, Xantham Gum, Methylparaben, Fragrance

Packaging: The packaging for this product is beautiful.
It comes with a pump in a translucent bottle, featuring classy gold and white writing on the bottle and a transparent cap.
The pump dispenses the perfect amount of product.
The bottle doesn’t have much but enough details. It has a shade sticker and few words to describe the product along with the weight. All the detailed information is provided on the box.
Texture: The texture isn’t thick but it’s definitely creamy. It does not run down. The consistency is light, smooth and easily blendable.
Application: Its really easily to apply. It works well with fingers, beauty blender and foundation brush. I have tried all three and it gives even application. I like using my beauty blender most.
Coverage: It claims to be high coverage foundation. It does work really well, provides an awesome coverage. When applied a thin layer, it gives my face an even skin tone and hides most of the dark spots or blemishes. The second layer can do wonder!! It hides all the acne marks and gives flawless face. But I personally avoid the second layer as it gives my face very orangish look and my face looks really dull.
Finish: It gives a smoother, flawless-looking finish on skin mattifying the oiliness, hiding dark spots and acne marks.
Staying Power: It stays well for about 5-6 hours in winters. In summers, it might be less than 4 hours.
Fragrance: It has a very mild-pleasant fragrance which I absolutely love!
Availability: It might be available at the beauty stores. For online shopping, its not very common product yet. It’s available only on Amazon.

My Experience : I am very much satisfied with this foundation. It’s a value for money product. I get a little bit oil in my T-Zone and have few blackheads on my nose as well. This foundation really gives me a natural matte finish hiding most of my flaws. It moisturizes my skin without leaving it dry. I apply two pumps with my beauty blender and it blends in easily. It does not feel heavy on the skin at all. I set it with pressed powder to make it last longer. Although it’s transfer resistant but I feel its a bit transferable. Setting with compact makes it fine.
Will I recommend?
Definitely!! I would recommend to try it once. Its good for people with normal to combination skin.
Will I re-purchase it?
Yes!! For sure. I purchased mine in the shade Natural Nude but it’s a bit darker than my skin tone so applying a thin layer works perfectly for me.But next time, I’ll go for the shade lighter than this.
My Verdict: 4.3/5
Overall Summary: In my opinion, it’s one of the best foundation I have ever used under 500 bucks. It doesn’t give that cakey finish. With this foundation, I feel confident as my skin looks even-toned yet natural. It helps to conceal flaws, dark spots, skin discoloration and under-eye circles to a good extent. Also, I never faced any issues like irritation or acne after using it. That’s a big relief!
