Korres Wild Rose Foundation

Korres says: Long lasting foundation for a flawless, radiant finish. Smooth to apply and easy to blend, it offers natural looking coverage and sun protection. Wild Rose, a natural source of vitamin C, works to repair fine lines and brighten uneven skin tone.

I've only been using this for a month so it's too soon to say if it's working to repair fine lines and brighten my skin tone, so I'll do a follow up review in a few months to report back on that.

So far I'm really happy with this foundation. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle is that it has a lovely soft rose scent. I can't smell it once the foundation is on, but it's a lovely smell.
This is a lovely foundation. It gives a sheer, long lasting finish and makes my skin look smooth and luminous.

I apply my Wild Rose Foundation with my Beauty Blender when I want a sheer finish and with my fingers when I want a heavier coverage. I normally set it with a light dusting of powder, which gives a more matte look, but it can also be worn without powder for a more luminous look. I have this in WRF1 which is the lightest shade.

Would I buy it again? Yes, it's a lovely foundation.

  1. thanks for the review, this sounds like a great foundation!

  2. Reading all your Korres makeup review makes me want to try some. I don't think they stock them in my neck of the woods though. :(
