This week on My Makeup Desk is a first impressions on a foundation. Woo hoo, I think by now you can tell I love foundations. The Touch In Sol Top Coat foundation* arrived on my desk a little while ago. I had never really heard of the brand so I thought I would try it and give you my thoughts.
The Touch In Sol flawless skin top coat retails for $49.99 AUD for 35mls which is a little more product than a standard foundation. It is available in Priceline stores and online. In my opinion $50 is a little on the pricey side for a foundation available in a drugstore, but after using the foundation I think the quality and size is worth the price.
First of all, lets start with the packaging, the foundation comes in a gorgeous glass bottle with embossed writing and a dropper applicator. The dropper gives a small amount of product which frustrated me at first as I couldn’t get enough out, I soon discovered its because you only need a little amount.
Considering the applicator I thought the foundation would be quite runny but it’s quite the opposite. It has a rather thick consistency, so you don’t have to worry about it sliding off your face when applying.
The biggest downfall of the foundation is definitely the shade selection having only two shades available. If you are on the pale side this may be a good choice for you. I have included swatches so you can see the 2 shades available.

Lets get on to the review. I applied a few drops to my forehead, chin, and cheeks. And buffed in the product using a kabuki brush I then went over with a damp beauty blender to take away excess product. This is the method I always use for any foundation application. After one layer the foundation was light coverage so I went in with a second layer to give me the desired full coverage with a natural finish. The finish is very matte and sets like a powder. I did set it with loose powder as I wasn’t sure how long it was going to last throughout the day. However, I feel like you don’t even need to set it with powder.
Overall I found the foundation had amazing coverage and lasted so well and looked flawless on my skin, I was super impressed and I had the foundation on for over 7 hours and I only had to touch up my nose area a little bit. I think this was from having a cold though.
Have you tried this foundation let me know your thoughts below.
