My Sustainable Journey: Flawless as a… Wild Rose?

The brand Korres prides itself on harnessing the power of nature to make us look our very best, without the side effects of harsh chemicals and preservatives. What began as a skin care line for the face and body, has since blossomed into a makeup line that promises to be as responsible as it is effective.
I’ve used the eyeshadows before (small, but lovely), but have never really given the foundation much of my time before now:
The Wild Rose foundation promises easy application and a flawless finish with sheer to medium coverage. It also contains an SPF 20, for added protection from the sun. My shade is WRF7. For comparison, I’m NC43 in MAC foundations.

The bottle is not that big… just a little over an ounce. That’s not much product for a $30 price tag. The good news is, you don’t need much of this foundation to cover any given face.

More bad news: this bottle comes with no pump. That means it has the potential to be messy and (for professionals) unsanitary. But this foundation redeems itself in the finish…

This is my very oily skin with just the foundation, applied with my fingers. No setting powder, no color correctors, no concealer. As a base product, it’s impressive. And I’m sure the finish is even better with a brush or sponge. It blended quickly and set softly. 
Another angle:

I’m interested in testing the boundaries of this foundation on a personal and professional level. If it stands up to its luxury counterparts, I can see making it a staple in my foundation rotation. BUT it would be nice to have a more sanitary means of dispensing the product. A bigger bottle wouldn’t hurt either. I’m just saying.

    Oh I like the finish on that one. Of course it won't come in my shade, but I really really want to try this one. How was the overall wear throughout the day?

    It DOES come in your shade! You're either 7 or 8. I really want to say that you're 7. It's pretty warm so it'll work well with your undertones.

    The coverage and the wear are noteworthy. A little bit does ACTUAL medium coverage… not really sheer at all. It wears soft for about 8 hours. After that, I noticed a little creasing on my very oily skin. To wear it in real life, I set it with MUFE HD powder.

  4. Hmmm. It's still me, new name lol. This is on my list then. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
