at blushgarden, we think differently about reading and writing beauty product reviews. we believe product reviews should provide you with detailed information, let the writer quickly and easily share their thoughts, and be a fun experience for all. to achieve this, we provide a ratings scale for distinct criteria, alongside traditional written comments. this format gives reviewers a way to provide an in-depth review of the same specific aspects of a product, allowing you zero in on the criteria that are most important to you.
without the need for long-form written text, everyone saves time. don’t let us discourage you from waxing poetic if you are so inclined, some people are gifted writers and should share if they want to. we just want to encourage and provide great reviews without that particular barrier to entry.
as an example, one rating criteria for foundation is formula thickness. formula thickness ranges from thin to thick. Thin might be a desired quality for you, while thick might be desired for someone else. there isn’t a right answer, only your opinion.
an added benefit to the scales is quickly seeing how a product might perform. you can identify that a product is rated highly for formula thickness without reading a lot of text. easily compare and evaluate similar products based on identical criteria. apples to apples, if you will.
we would honestly love to hear your feedback, if you have an idea for a new rating criteria, let us know! post in the feedback forum, or send us an email to .
This medium with cool undertones, buildable, weightless, medium-to-full coverage foundation delivers a glowing finish that will look luminous in any light. Included in the formula is Vitamin C to help reveal brighter, clearer, more even toned skin over time so that even on no makeup days, your skin is naturally radiant. It also helps to visibly smooth and soften skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Flexible polymers melt onto the skin to create long-wearing, comfortable, second-skin color that resists oxidation. How to Use: For best results, apply to clean skin with a makeup sponge over your foundation primer. Laura’s Tip: It’s key to avoid over-applying foundation to the middle of the face—where too much formula can accentuate lines and other imperfections. With liquid foundation, she recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inward towards the nose. Focus on one area at a time, being sure to blend well. Avoid excess application around eyes or the contours of the face. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved. Remember, use Foundation to even out your skin tone, and Concealer to camouflage imperfections.
