The little NYC Smooth Skin double act popped through my door and I finally got my chance. Consisting of a primer and a foundation mousse the two aim to give flawlessly smooth looking skin .
The primer is supposed to even out skin tone. I imagine this is from the white illuminating particles, when you then pop the mousse on top it seems to run over the skin much easier. One thing I noticed when running the mousse over my hand for the pictures is that the velvet feel is very non budge, the primer is actually a real help in making it spread. Without a primer or moisturiser you would end up using a lot of the product trying to get it to easily work over the face. The stay put nature of it like all foundations of that ilk do require a conduit to spread them so have the primer or a moisturiser on hand.
When I popped this on I took one look at the colour and went 'erm that's a bit dark for me' but put it on over my primer and it just went on. You don't need very much and it gives a nice matt finish. I kept it light used a little extra in any areas that needed a little extra colour and it was done. It actually was fine on my skin which I was surprised about.
So what do I now think of mousses? Well for this, definitely a primer is a must to make it stay put and spread well. But I've been able to wear this and it's stayed put for quite a few hours. Definitely worth a punt if you want to try out mousses as the texture is lovely. Also as always with NYC such a bargain coming in at only a few quid. Great value for money.
Much love as always
