Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.
Beauty Crew sent the Designer Brands Luminous Hydrating Foundation to women aged between 18 to 44 who are looking for a foundation that delivers naturally radiant and hydrated skin.
Here's what the Review Crew® loved about Designer Brands Luminous Hydrating Foundation:
How dewy it made the skin: Our Review Crew® loved the way this formula worked to illuminate their features. Additionally, many reviewers mentioned that they didn’t have to use their liquid highlighter as the foundation provided all the natural luminosity they needed.
How lightweight it feels: Testers were also impressed by the light formula, with many commenting on how it still provided a buildable and even coverage. Some also mentioned the foundation’s ability to cover problem areas and imperfections without looking cakey.
How perfect it was for everyday wear: Offering a natural and glowing finish, most reviewers found that this was the perfect option for everyday wear.
Good to know: While testers with dry skin were especially impressed with how hydrating it felt on their skin, a few testers found that the foundation wasn’t suitable for oily skin.
