Beautylish is now selling Natasha Denona, and they started with her face glow products. I purchased the Face Glow Foundation in the lightest shade, 10 Neutral Porcelain. The foundation retails for $42 for 1 oz. From the Beautylish site:
This lightweight foundation protects the skin with an SPF of 15 and has brilliant staying power, making it perfect for all day wear or for a night-out. Its hydrating formula is suitable for all skin types and will leave your skin with an even, flawless, natural finish look.
The product is thick, so the pump can have some troubles getting the product out. I usually need to wipe the excess from around the pump nozzle. I also had troubles with the pump coming out very easily, just when I’d pull the cover off. I thought it was just me, but Jaclyn Hill mentioned this issue in a haul video too.
Since the foundation is pretty thick, I have a little bit of trouble spreading the foundation on my skin with my fingers. A beautyblender or brush does a better job, though it’s no easy task.
The finish is really beautiful – super glowy, but not shiny or oily-looking. Unfortunately, the “hydrating formula” isn’t quite enough for me. The finish ends up looking more normal-matte on me a few hours in, and clings to a few dry patches. I really like this foundation when I add a drop of oil to it though. I’ve been using Josie Maran Argan Oil. Not only does the beautiful finish last longer, I find the foundation goes on my skin more easily.

Shade 10 is not a perfect match for me, but it is the best match for me in the small shade range. It looks yellow in comparison to my very cool, pink skin. It works well on my face when it is sheered out though. It still gives a nice, medium coverage – it covers up imperfections, but doesn’t cover some of my darker freckles. It does feel like I have something on my skin, but it’s not too heavy.
This foundation is supposed to work for everyone, but I think someone with oily skin will need to set with powder or use a mattifying primer.
I really love this foundation when I add a drop of oil to it! It gives my dry skin a beautiful glow. It would be nice to have more shades in the range to ensure better color matching.
