Beauty Blast: Avon’s ExtraLasting Cream-to-Powder Foundation



As the summer draws to close, I’m already looking ahead to Fall and how to I can transition my style for the upcoming season.  The heat was extra brutal this summer, putting my tinted moisturizer to work but milder weather is on the horizon and I’m anxious to change things up.

Enter Avon’s ExtraLasting Cream-to-Powder Foundation

Before I go any further, I must tell you, that I’ve been using the same foundation for the past three years.  I’ve always been reluctant to try anything new (my skin is super particular when it comes to that).  However, I’ve always been a fan of Avon’s products and they rarely disappoint.  So I stepped out of my foundation box and gave this foundation a try!  With this product, Avon promises to give your face a flawless matte finish, withstanding sweat and humidity for up to 18 hours.

The verdict?

I was quite impressed! 


The shade I used (Dark Cocoa) matched my skin tone perfectly.  The formula goes on smooth with the powder keeping my T-zone so under control I didn’t have to follow up with my regular powder.  It gave me the medium coverage I needed without feeling heavy and drying my skin out.  I also didn’t have to pile of ton of it on, which is something I never like doing with it comes to foundation. It stood up to his Florida heat and humidity quite nice, staying put for most of the day. The compact itself is super cute, with a separate compartment for the applicator.  My only tiff is that the dark shades do not have SPF 15 protection, which is a bummer because we darker skin ladies need just as much protection from the sun.

 As loyal as I am to my foundation, I found this one to be great product to use when transitioning to the Fall.  It gives you the same results you would get from using a foundation while feeling light enough to use while the temps are still up there.

How are you transitioning your beauty routine for the Fall?

    i love that it seems lightweight on your skin. It looks really great on you. I have a hard time finding my colour match because of the yellow undertones in my skin, so I usually just use tinted moisturisers or even light bronzer. Good review! xo

      Thank you! Yes, I have a hard time finding a match for my skin too so I was very shocked to see how well this matched mine. I also like the fact this product has a few darker shades as opposed to just one or two
