Vasanti Cosmetics Foundations? Yes please!

I have been a long time fan of Vasanti Cosmetics as you can see from my post on their "Cancun" tinted lip balm & a "USA" lipstick, still 2 of my favs.

It all started at the 2009 Suhaag Bridal show where my makeup school was doing the hair and makeup for the fashion show. I was behind the scenes for the most part but did get a chance after the runway show to walk around a bit. I headed straight to the Vasanti booth as I had heard many great things about them in the past. It was packed! As I waited to speak to one of the artists I glanced at all the fun products but was mostly drawn to the foundations and powders because at the time I had such a hard time finding a perfect shade for me. An artist's chair opened, I was greeted very warmly and asked if I wanted to try any of the products.... I sat down right away and with a huge smile said "I sure would!"

Well that was a year ago and Ive been hooked ever since. I'm a HUGE fan of their Liquid Cover-up foundation and their Face Base foundation powder. Not only because they match my skin tone to a tee but because they feel ultra light which for me is important.



I start each morning with my Liquid Cover-up Foundation in the V3 shade (for reference im a NC35) which Ill sometimes only wear it under my eyes and other times all over my face. Its easy to apply with its attached brush and acts as a concealer and foundation in one. It blends into my skin so well I often forget I'm wearing it and is oil free which I prefer.


It comes in 15 different shades, cost approx $23.00 and a little goes a long way with these foundations and since they are buildable the possibilities are endless!

I finish off with the Face Base Foundation powder which can be used with the sponge provided for a fuller coverage or with a powder brush for a light dusting. In my case I generally don't need more coverage after the Liquid Cover-Up so I just use a fluffy brush and it keeps my face nice and matte. The Face Base is oil free and oil absorbing, non- comodogenic and light weight. It also comes in 15 different shades, cost approx $25.00.


I love the colorful boxes and sleek silver packaging that helps the line stand out and I find the more I try out the brand the more I love the products. Vasanti Cosmetics products are available in select Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall's (click here to find a location near you) as well as online at Amazon.com and on their website vasanticomstics.com.

Check back soon for my review of their new spring line set to hit stores at the end of March.

Now I can see the Liquid cover up in action :-) Lovely love story, lol

I'm NC35 as well - so I guess I'll be a V3 as well. I need a liquid foundation, so I'm definitely going to check the cover-up out.

I like how the 2 items are packaged -it looks like it will be easy to travel with - without worrying about making a mess!

You may be a V3 but best to check it out in stores first to be 100%!

Also yeah the items travel very well no worries about bottles breaking or stuff leaking.

I'm a V3 too! I use my liquid coverup as a spot treatment under my face powder - I was hesitant to try it because I never thought I needed a concealer, but WOW I totally see the difference and love how light the liquid cover up is :) Great post mamma!
