Review: Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation

With perhaps the most stunning packaging on the market, Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation has caught the attention of beauty lovers everywhere. Made of white bronze, these refillable compacts are both sturdy and sustainable. Unfortunately, they are also quite pricey. At $68 for 0.26 oz. (7.5 g) of product, this foundation is an investment. However, if you don't mind foregoing the gorgeous compact, Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation Refills can be purchased for the slightly less breathtaking price of $40 and can easily be popped into a Z Palette.

Finish

Although this cream foundation is silky to the touch, it is also quite firm. The first time that I used this product, I felt like I really had to show my brush who's boss in order to pick up any foundation. Needless to say, I have now resorted to using a Beauty Blender and I find that it works perfectly. The semi-matte finish of this product is reminiscent of a cream-to-powder formulation, but I find that this foundation remains dewy on my dry skin throughout hours of wear.

Application

Moisturized skin is key to the successful application of this foundation. I recommend a light beauty oil, but a generous amount of your favorite moisturizer should do the trick. After my moisturizer has had a minute or two to sink in, I just bounce a thin layer of this foundation on with a Beauty Blender and then go back in with my fingers to conceal the darkness underneath my eyes. What I enjoy most about this foundation is that it takes so little effort to look phenomenal. Because it is so quick and easy to apply, this foundation is also compatible with my morning "get out the door dash." I even find myself admiring how beautifully, airbrushed my skin looks throughout the workday (commence happy dance!!).

Wrap-Up

This is an incredibly luxurious foundation and I find that it wears exceptionally well. My skin doesn't dry out or get greasy throughout the day, and the finish remains even and flawless. The coverage is easily buildable and I love that I can conceal by adding just a touch more product. Additionally, this foundation blends well with other products, especially other creams, but also plays nicely with the powders that I have tested out. This is not the most hydrating foundation on my naturally dry skin, but a generous application of moisturizer prior to use really helps. Overall, I am quite pleased with the performance of the Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation and I plan on keeping it as a staple in my makeup arsenal.
