Review: Sephora Teint Infusion Ethereal Natural Finish Foundation

Last week I had a few bucks burning a whole in my pocket (some leftover Christmas money), and decided to head to Sephora.  A bad idea usually, but I managed to control myself and came away with only one thing… the Sephora Teint Infusion Ethereal Natural Finish Foundation. Whew!   What a mouthful!

I was aching to try it because I love lightweight, breathable foundations.  I was also attracted by the dropper dispenser.  I purchased the shade 10 Ivory.
My first impression was that I LOVED the consistency and application!  I would dare to say I liked the initial application more than my Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet…  probably the best feel of any base I have tried.  I applied it with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, and was blown away by the extremely silky, smooth feel.
It's 7:30 AM and  I'm ready to start my day!

I wore it with a primer, and it did last quite a while… I would say seven or eight hours, so I would rate the wear time as good.  However, on my skin it left me with too much shine.  I would classify my skin as oil prone anyway, so after only a few hours I felt like I needed to powder and by five o’clock I wanted to wash it all off!  I tried very hard to make this foundation work because I liked it so much.  With regular touch-ups (every couple hours) I think I could possibly wear this for short days during the winter months, but for me this would be absolutely IMPOSSIBLE in the summer!
It's noon... the foundation is beginning to shine and pores are becoming very visible.

It's now 7:30 PM.  I have not powdered, and you can see the shine on my forehead and cheeks.  Sorry for the poor picture quality, I had very bad lighting.

So, the verdict?  I liked it, and think it is a high quality foundation.  Especially for the $24.00 price tag, which comes in about half the price of similar quality high end bases.  I think it would be great for those with normal to dry skin.  A must try if you get the chance, but shiny girls beware!

Have you tried the Teint Infusion?  What are your favorite foundations?  I would love to hear!
