Review:Avon Calming Effects foundation (Ro+En)

002Revin cu un nou review axat pe fondurile de ten; este vorba, in acest post, de fondul de ten de la Avon-Calming Effects. Altfel spus, o surpriza placuta.

I’m back with another review based on foundations. This time, it’s about Avon foundation-Calming Effects. A.k.a. a good surprise.

As spune ca il am dintr-o intamplare. Sincer, initial nu l-as fi cumparat, pentru ca eram reticenta in ceea ce priveste fondurile de ten de la Avon/Oriflame, cu atat mai mult in cazul acestuia, care nu beneficiaza de foarte multe review-uri pozitive; multe fete afirma ca le-a iritat pielea si le-a provocat acnee. La asta se adauga si faptul ca l-am vazut pe fata unei prietene si avea un aspect de masca, foarte urat. La prima aplicare nu mi s-a parut cine stie ce. Dupa 2-3 minute, cand m-am uitat din nou in oglinda, am fost placut surprinsa.

I would say I descovered it acidentally .Honestly, firstly I wouldn’t have buy it, because I was skeptic concerning Avon/Oriflame foundations, mostly about this one that doesn’t really have that many good reviews.;many girls says that this foundation caused them irritations and acnee. Another thing that made me not to buy it was the fact that I’ve seen it at one of my friends and it had had a mask aspect, very unaesthetic. When I first applied it, I didn’t thought it’s such a big deal. After 2-3 minutes, when I looked again in the mirror, I was surprised in a very good way.006

Ce promite?
“Fond de ten calmant cu extract de mușețel, levănțică și aloe, netezește și revigorează tenul obosit și lipsit de energie. Formula îmbogățită cu vitaminele A și E hrănește în profunzime pielea și uniformizează nuanța tenului.Potrivit oricărui tip de ten , recomandat chiar și pentru tenul sensibil.
Efect: catifelează și luminează tenul obosit, facându-l să arate proaspăt și hidratat întreaga zi.”

What does it promise?
Gentle creamy foundation refreshes the appearance of stressed skin and helps give a natural, dewy look. Vitamin enriched. Dermatologically tested. UVA and UVB protection. Enriched with a vitamin complex, aloe and lavender. „

Este disponibil in 5 nuante, a meu este un Ivory, cel mai deschis. Am obisnuit sa il folosesc destul de des, iar asta se poate vedea si pe sticluta, caci scrisul a disparut complet :)) Legat de nuante, in poza nu par foarte diferentiate, dar nu pot fii sigura de asta. Numai prin aplicare pe tenul tau iti poti da seama daca ti se potriveste sau nu._vyrd11_6382426-5

It’s available in 5 shades, mine it’s Ivory, the lightest one. I used to apply it very often, and that can be seen even on the bottle, as the writting have completly dissappeared.:))
About the shades, in the picture they don’t seem to be too different, but I can’t be sure about it. Only by applying on your own skin, you can realise if it’s a good optin for you.

Ambalajul este unul foarte practic. De la experienta cu Stay Matte Perfect Stay de la Rimmel London, pe care o puteti citi aici, mi-am zis ca cea mai proasta idee e un fond de ten intr-un tub. Calming Effects vine intr-o sticluta si este prevazut cu o pompita de dozare, pentru a nu irosi produsul. Pompita poate fi si scoasa, asa incat sa poti vedea cat produs ti-a mai ramas, sau sa iei o cantitate mai mare.005

The package is a very practical one. From my experience with Stay Matte Perfect Stay from Rimmel London, that you can read about here, I said that  the worst idea is a foundation in a tube. Calming Effects comes in a bottle and it also have a little dosing pump, that can also be took out, if you want to see how much product it remains or if you want more product for an application.

Consistenta este una lichida, dar nu intr-atat incat sa curga. E foarte usor de aplicat, se intinde bine, se absoarbe ceva mai greu in piele fata de fondurile de ten cu care eram obisnuita. Adevarul e ca de la un fond de ten spuma, consistent, la unul spre lichid, diferenta e foarte mare. Este si motivul pentru care spuneam la inceput ca initial nu mi-a placut. Intr-un minut, doua, se aseaza perfect pe ten.
Trebuie sa recunosc si ca imi place acoperirea. As spune ca e una medie, dar poti acoperi cu succes orice imperfectiune daca insisti intr-un anumit loc, in loc sa il intinzi. In general, eu folosesc un singur strat si mai adaug si corectorul de la Oriflame, (mai multe detalii despre el, aici). Imi place ca nu are aspect de masca, asa cum credeam. Atata timp cat il aplici bine, nu ai probleme cu el. La fel de mult imi place si mirosul, care persista putin timp. Ca veni vorba de rezistenta, eu port acest fond de ten si 10-12 ore. Nu mai are acelasi aspect, dar arata foarte bine. Inr-adevar, uniformizeaza nuanta tenului.004

The consistence is a liquid one, but it doesn’t  leak. It is very easy to apply, it can be easily spread, it is a little bit harder to absorbs into the skin, compared with the foundation I was used to. Truth is that from a mousse textured,consistent foundation to a liquid one, is a great difference. It is also the reason why I said, in the beggining, that initially I didn’t liked it. In a minut or two, it perfectly fits on the skin.
I have to admit that I like the coverage. I would say it’s a medium one, but you can succesfully cover any imperfection if you insist in a certain zone, and not spread it.Usually, I use only one layer and I also add the Oriflame concealer.(more details about it, here). I like that it doesn’t have that mask aspect, as I thought. As long as you apply it well, there’s no problem. That much I also love the smell. It is a beautiful „fragrance” that stays for some time on the skin. Talking about resistance, I wear this foundation for like 1- or 12 hours. It doesn’t have the same aspect, but it looks very well. And it’s true, it smooths the skin.

Sticluta are 30ml, iar momentan costa 36 lei. Oricum, cred ca il puteti gasi si mai ieftin in perioadele de reduceri.

The bottle has 30mL and now it costs almost 9$. Anyway, I think you can find it at a lower price in sales periods.007

In conclusie, imi place! Chiar foarte mult si sunt multumita! De cumparat, insa, nu stiu, asta pentru ca vreau sa mai incerc si alte tipuri, si mereu caut acel fond de ten..

As a conclusion, I like it! I actually like it a lot! Am I gonna buy it again? I can’t tell you for sure, but only because I want to experience more and find that foundation..
