Review | Avon Ideal Flawless Cream to Powder Foundation

Hi guys!
Today I'm reviewing the Avon Ideal Flawless Cream to Powder Foundation.

Brand| Avon
Price| £12 currently £6.50 on offer
Size| 9g
Colour| Shell
Packaging| Black plastic compact style, with a mirror and sponge included
Would I re-purchase| I don't think so

So I've had this for a few months now and I have bit of a mixed view on this. Its meant to apply as a cream and turn to a powder and in my experience there is no powdery finish. 

The colour match with my skin tone is OK although is a little on the orange side for me. In the catalogue and online it shows much lighter than it actually is, I would say it was more on the Soft Honey side rather than Shell.

The foundation is of light to medium coverage and does a pretty good job of covering up my blemishes and open pores and evening out my skin tone. I apply this with my little orange sponge and it just glides on to the skin like butter and has a super creamy consistency which gives a soft dewy finish making the skin look so luminous and healthy, but I do have to set this with a powder. Powder is a must for me with this foundation, if I skip it, its not long before my whole face begins to look overly dewy, and by that I mean an oil slick. I think if my skin was dryer this would be an amazing foundation, but I really wouldn't recommend it to someone with oily skin. 
Overall I've found this to be bit of a hit and miss. It works really well with my skin some days and not so well other days, but I guess that's really just to do with my skin type. I was a bit disappointed that it doesn't turn in to a powder like the packaging says it should but what can you do! I don't think I'll be repurchasing it any time soon. 

Have a great weekend!

  1. Hi! I'm so glad I read this review as I feel exactly the same way! There are some days that quite like it, and other days I don't. Also i try different ways to apply and it does not always go on so well! Unfortunately I bought 2 extra containers when I thought I liked the product-but now not so much. Also I find it doesn't really turn into a powder on my face and the brochure says its meant for oily/combo skin. Overall I'm a little bit disappointed in the product itself-but then again I don't fare very well with MOST compact foundations on the market.. Any way, I find I use it up quite quickly and will finish it by wearing round the house indoors. Will NOT repurchase again!...
