Dr. Hauschka fans may be familiar with the brand’s Translucent makeup, a sheer coverage liquid foundation that enhanced skin’s radiance, but still lacked a little something. The lightweight product left us longing for a little more coverage and recently our wishes were answered. Meet the new upgraded complexion perfector that is kicking the former to the curb: Foundation. The new and improved formulation, while wonderful in its own right, is as simple as its name — in the best way possible. And it’s quickly rising through the ranks and becoming a new favorite.
Not only did Dr. Hauschka’s formula get a makeover, but so did the shade options and packaging. The glossy black tube houses the new medium coverage foundation that comes in five different luminous shades. Upon opening the mini tube, we were immediately hit with the soft, summery scent of coconut and citrus, which, in our minds, is a pleasant surprise early in the morning. The consistency is in between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation — very smooth and silky to the touch. Nourishing ingredients, including shea butter, macadamia oil, coconut oil and anthyllis and pomegranate extracts work together to infuse skin with moisture, while providing it with even, natural coverage. Finally, a well-rounded option to cover up on warmer days that isn’t heavy like most foundations, but will hide imperfections and redness seamlessly.
The synthetic-, preservative- and fragrance-free foundation (yes, that lively smell is au naturel) has been our go-to makeup since the summer’s start, not just because of the awesome benefits and ideal everyday coverage, but because it has stayed put all day long, through the downpours and sweltering heat we’ve been treated to in the Northeast. All while helping keep our oily skin at bay (we kid you not). Maybe it’s just us, but with even more humidity and high heat on the horizon this summer, Dr. Hauschka’s reformulated foundation is undoubtedly our new makeup must.
