Maskcara IIID Foundation Review

Maskcara IIID Light Foundation Review and Swatches

I wanted to share my Maskcara IIID foundation review with you. I sat on this review for a very long time because I kept trying to find a way to make this foundation work for me and finally I just gave up. I think this foundation is a great idea in concept but not in practice.

You’re supposed to apply the highlighting portion to the center of the face, then apply the contouring portion to the outer edges of the face and blend the two together.

I found this to be light to medium coverage. I felt like it looked awful on me in person but it looked nicer in video. This is definitely warm toned, and too dark for my complexion.

I’ve tried to apply this a ton of different ways, none of which worked for me. I’ve tried it with primer, without primer, with setting powder, without setting powder, with the It Cosmetics duo ended foundation brush, stippling with the Goss foundation brush, and none of it worked. (I go into more details in the video above.)

I truly believe I’m not using this foundation correctly, but I’m at a loss for how to try and use it at this point.

This foundation just did not work for me.

If you’ve tried this foundation and love it, how do you use it? Please share your tips below!
