Origins Plantscription Foundation - Review

For the first time ever in my history of blogging I am not going to mess around chatting about the packaging
of this foundation (simplistic, modern and typical foundation squeeze tube that is robust...I can't help myself.)
and just crack on (no more Geordie Shore for me) with the review.

"This patent-pending, anti-ageing foundation with Anogeissus floats effortlessly over skin to deliver instant age-and-pore-correcting perfecting SPF helps prevent future ageing signs.
Colour stays true for hours."

Origins is a brand most us associate with skin care but they do have a range of make-up items
all of which are fabulous and the product I have been getting to grips with is their anti-ageing foundation
which comes in 11 shades that range from light to dark and warm to cool...I love when brands do this!
The formula is light and quite a loose but it has just the right amount of moisture, not so hydrating that
us with oily skin need to worry but enough to quench dry skins and prevent the foundation from clinging to
any dry areas on the face nor does it settle into fine lines or enlarged pores but glides over imperfections,
concealing and evening the skin tone as it goes.

The coverage is essentially in the mid range but you can easily build it over any area that needs a little more
help without it caking all the while being extremely comfortable to wear and staying in place for at least 8 hours with the aid of primer and powder in my case (oily skin).
I truly do like this foundation as it feels like a second skin yet covers so well with a natural finish that isn't 
overly matte, the shade I have shown above is very light which is a tad too light, I will be ordering
medium cool so expect to hear more about this foundation across various posts in the coming months!
