A’pieu Triple Wear Foundation

Hi there! It’s Saturday! It’s going to be about foundation today.

A’pieu has recently released Triple Wear Foundation, and it has 5 shades this time! As I saw that they have a shade in Sand I went ahead and bought one.

Product claims:

Makes sleek skin tone long-lasting while supplying moisture without stickiness.

Smell:
Smells like lotion, kinda like Jergens. I like it.

Texture:
Watery.

Finish:
Powdery, matte finish.

Packaging:
It’s in a frosted glass, black plastic pump and cover. Looks fancy.

 

 

My experiences

Upside:

  • It did not cause any irritations whatsoever.
  • I love how the pump dispenses the right amount of product.
  • It did not clog my pores πŸ‘
  • It’s very lightweight πŸ‘
  • It’s buildable and it did not look cakey πŸ‘
  • Wearing by itself it did conceal my dark circles πŸ‘
  • It wasn’t sticky while drying and when it fully dried.
  • It dries pretty quick!
  • Sheer to light coverage when using a foundation brush or a contour face brush I think it’s called.
  • When I used that brush it covered my larger pores on the nose.
  • I used it with a cushion puff and it looks like it has better coverage compared to that brush. But still light coverage. I prefer using this.
  • I really love the soft powdery finish.
  • It doesn’t feel heavy, cakey, annoying after hours of using it.
  • It brightened up my complexion.

 

Neutral ground:

  • Definitely transferproof πŸ‘ BUT when my nose started producing oil, it transferred.
  • It kind of covered the redness and blemishes around my face a little bit.
  • Smile lines were covered a little.
  • After an hour it looks almost like my skin tone (less white?) so that’s good πŸ‘
  • Using the Beauskin Makeup Base, it feels less drying on the skin and it gives a glow.
  • Since I have really yellow tone, this for some reason looks somewhat ashy on me but it doesn’t look weird.

 

Downside:

  • It settled on smile lines.
  • It also settled on dry patches.
  • Avoid flash photography! 😣 Since it has a little bit of a white cast. This won’t be a problem though if you blend down your neck and if you don’t have a strong yellow undertone.
  • Using a sponge it didn’t cover the larger pores on my nose.
  • It has a little pink tone to it.
  • It slides around on oily nose.
  • It made it look like my skin is so dry.

 

 

Let’s try to cover those stains left from the lip stains.

 

POV from Aaron:
No it doesn’t look too white, it looks nice.
I can see where you didn’t apply it (around the lips)

 

Used with a dampened sponge:

  • It was a little easier to blend.
  • Did not clog my pores.
  • It didn’t hide the bigger pores on my nose.
  • It accentuated my whiteheads πŸ™
  • For some reason it made my skin look like it was really dry πŸ™
  • It did feel a little dry
  • I used a primer on one side of my face to hide the pores. With or without primer it has the same results.
  • Larger pores aren’t covered πŸ™
  • Application with sponge or cushion puff is better than brush because the brush leaves brush strokes.

 

 

Oil Control:
🍺Worn alone – 4 hours and there was a little oil on the nose. But makeup is still there.

🍻Worn with Beauskin Makeup Base – 6 hours until my nose was oily.

 

APPLICATION:

  • Make sure to shake it well before using.
  • Pump and dot on the face and then blend with a brush or a sponge or a cushion puff. Your fingers of you want.

 

REMOVAL:

  • I recommend using make-up wipes or waterproof makeup remover for this product.
  • Afterwards use a micellar water to really make sure that there isn’t any left.
  • Then wash your face with your cleanser.
  • OR just use an oil to foam facial cleanser.

 

TIPS:

  1. Make sure to use a hydrating cream before using this product.
  2. Do not disturb it before it dries and settles.
  3. Work in sections because it dries fast.
  4. For better finish don’t use too much on one go. Build thin layers of it.
  5. Use a luminizing or hydrating base when using this product.
  6. Use a pore filling primer.
  7. For the peeps out there with large pores like me, use a pore blurring powder after.

 

Well I don’t exactly hate it, but I don’t really love it because of the pink tinge in it. It makes my face look white and a little ashy. I was expecting a little more yellow tone on this since it’s the darkest shade, but then this is the first time A’pieu released 5 foundation shades so let’s forgive them.

 

For reference:

My skin is combination type, sensitive, oily T-zone and the sides of the nose and eyelids, enlarged pores, acne-prone, cystic and cluster acne problems, acne scars, uneven skin tone, redness, dehydrated skin.

That’s it for today! I hope you found something helpful here πŸ™‚ What are your thoughts about this product? Share them down the comments! ❀
