The Best Foundation I Have Ever Used! Great For Older Skin Too.
Env: developmentI don't like foundation. You know why? Because I can see it on almost everyone who wears it. I know, I know. If you are a foundation fanatic, you are probably saying to yourself, that I just don't know how to apply it. Or maybe that I never met anyone who knew how to apply it.I have heard it all. Seriously. You don't know HOW many times I have allowed someone that said those very things to me to SHOW me how to do foundation the right way. They proudly take the time to apply the foundation in what they assure me is the flawless correct manner.I watch carefully as they give me the best they have, and you know what? I can STILL see their foundation.I work on a lot of older clients. Older people have a lot more challenges when it comes to foundation. They have pits, and creases, and wrinkles, and oftentimes craggy skin and enlarged pores.I came across a foundation that professionals use which is designed for the HD market so that you can even use it in front of the unforgiving HD lenses which magnify all sorts of imperfections and problems with makeup so EVERYONE can see it up close and personal.**Product Details**Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour foundation comes in various forms. You can get it alone in a round container. You can get it in a long narrow container with five selected colors which fall in a particular range from super Snow White pale to Dark Ebony beautiful. You can also buy it in super palettes which will give you 18 colors in a selected range of either neutral, warm, or cool.The texture of Graftobian is a cream yet pretty firm. The prices range from $12.50 for a single color to $19 for a five palette to $260 for three super palettes, a corrector palette and a instructional DVD.**Product Performance**At first I was rather put off by the Graftobian palettes. I have all three super palettes as well as the corrector palette and their lip color palette. The squares seemed to be so small, and the colors seemed to be so odd to me, having never dealt with this line before.However, as I have used them over and over on various people, I have found that the colors are easily adapted by mixing and using combinations of on various people and skin tones.What impresses me most of all about this line of Hi Def Foundation is that if warmed up with fingers and applied carefully in a patting motion on the face, I have been able to put this foundation on the most difficult of skin textures with it being completely undetectable. I even put it on men who refuse to wear makeup to cover up bruising coloration and dark circles, and who had enlarged pores, lots of wrinkles and creases and blemishes and discolorations. This foundation is the only foundation I have been able to use in such a case where it is almost impossible to see that the person is wearing any foundation at all.The finish was set with mineralized skinfinish powder from MAC or similar mineral powder and the foundation lasted all day long and into the night with no trace of foundation settling or creasing being seen.The trick with this makeup is that it is firm and has to be warmed up with the finger (after using hand sanitizer, of course) and then patting it around the entire face gradually and lightly. It makes fantastic contour, eye contour, and even highlighter, making it easy to sculpt the face beautifully.I have never worked with such a nice foundation that looks good on any skin from older to younger and stays that way if applied carefully.I have also not seen too many lines of foundation which carry very dark neutral colors that are not orange or red in tone as well as very light colors in various tones which look good on even the lightest of skintones.**The Bottom Line**Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Creme Foundation is the best foundation I have ever found for young and older skin. It goes on virtually undetectable if carefully applied and covers up most intense discolorations too. Long lasting and wide variety of colors are only a few reasons why I really love using this foundation.Although it is not like most of the foundations I have used in the past, it is the best performer for photographs as well as daily wear.You can get Graftobian products at www.paintandpowderstore.com and www.camerareadycosmetics.com.For the record, foundations I have worked with in the past are MAC, Estee Lauder, Maybelline, Cover Girl, Revlon, Almay, Ulta, Lancome, Loreal, Elizabeth Arden, Bare Escentuals, Chanel, Clinique, Dior, Mary Kay, Avon, Laura Mercier, Too Faced, Makeup Forever.Env: development Less
