Essence: Soft Touch Mousse

This mousse is so squishy and soft that I apply it on a daily basis just for the heck of feeling its texture. Most liquid foundations leave cracks and flaky patches on my face, so I recently thought of giving mousse foundation a try.

Make up moguls suggest that liquid foundation is great for better and smooth coverage, but mousse works wonders with oily and combination skins and also gives a matt finish.

You know what’s the best thing about it, apart from being soft as cotton candy? It’s for Dhs 20. THAT’S RIGHT! This drugstore product is all of Dhs.20.

I don’t often use foundation for the reason that I like my natural skin tone. Luckily, this Essence Mousse shade O3 Matt Honey blends right in with my olive skin.

However, the only issue with this mousse is the odour that it has. It smells of plastic. But most base makeup products have the same down side to them, I wouldn’t complain so much, considering the texture, price and quality of the mousse.

I highly recommend this product to all budding make up addicts out there in the world, who don’t want to spend a fortune on their new found love for make up, much like me and also, to those with combination skin.

I do advice for you to experiment this: Use Benefit Porefesional or Maybelline Baby Skin face primers before applying the Mousse by Essence. A duo of matt primer and matt mousse increases the chances of an overall matt finish look, and for a longer period of time, especially for those with oily skin.

Since the cost of Essence Mousse is pretty much next to nothing, you don’t have to think twice before purchasing it, and even if it doesn’t suit your skin for some reason, it’s not too challenging to recover from the financial loss.
