The JCat HD Perfection Skinsealer foundation has had my attention since its launch. JCat products deeply impressed me with its pigmentation and staying power. I assumed even before trying that it would be one of those full coverage foundations that will stick to skin for good 18+ hours, well I was totally wrong about it and it is a good thing, read my complete review as it is one of a kind in JCat products that is not full coverage or has that punching pigmentation!
Having tried this foundation for over 3 weeks I can tell that this is more like Nars Sheer Glow foundation. It is a light coverage foundation which can be built to light-medium coverage–definitely no more coverage than medium coverage at most. I was sent 2 shades 104 Warm Honey & 105 Almond Toffee and my correct match was 105 Almond Toffee so I am reviewing this shade.
JCat Skinsealer foundation comes in 10 beautiful shades but I think it really caters for medium to dark skin complexions. Pale skin really have very limited shade selection. The packaging is nothing fancy, comes in a plastic bottle with a pump, which makes it perfect for traveling! Considering the texture, I’d say the foundation it’s not watery or creamy its in the middle of both. Though this is a water based foundation that definitely gives a refreshing and rehydrating feel on skin.
Truly, the coverage of this foundation is the best thing I admire, not true to its name this is lightweight medium coverage foundation that cancels out the appearance of redness, blemishes and visible pores without concealing skin’s natural beauty. Skin looks fresh and glows with sheer perfection.
This product gives my skin an instant glow, and makes me look fresh and healthy. It even works when my skin is the worst, where I usually have to stop wearing make up to recover it. If I have to say something bad about it, it is not a full coverage product, but that might actually be why it looks so great. This skinsealer foundation allows your natural unique qualities, like freckles, to shine through while still evening everything out. I’ve personally found that sheerer products, or even tinted moisturizers, provide my skin with a super healthy glow.
If you want to build to full coverage or want to cover up major flaws then use color correcting and concealer before because you will be disappointed if you try just this foundation. Anything over medium coverage after 2 layers then I suggest tinted moisturizer on top so you still retain the natural finish and have some extra coverage. I get about four to six hours of really great wear with this formula, but it does start to wane by the eighth hour. I think a little blot powder or pressed powder at lunch time helps to keep it working all day. I just wouldn’t describe it as a long-wearing foundation.
Final Thoughts: Recommend, I truly love it. For under 8$ this is a steal in drugstore foundation. What I love most about the foundation is the texture its medium coverage but feels super light. Depending on how you apply it you can change up the look from light to medium. It blends beautifully and the look can be changed for soft and glowy to medium coverage and dewy. Color range is great so all you brown girls who can’t find your color, check out JCat HD Perfection Skinsealer foundation.
