The Jane Iredale Glowy Base Combination – Review

It’s not often that I get too excited about a foundation combo – why? Because I rarely change my routine, but given the ridiculously hot weeks, my usually super ridiculously bright foundation was making me look even more like a sweaty mess, so something had to give. Cue going back to an old Jane Iredale favorite and introducing something game-changing into the mix.

About two weeks ago I posted on my Insta-stories how I’ve always loved Jane Iredale Glow Time, but I find it super thick and a little annoying to blend. It’s the kind of foundation product you hate but love all at the same time. Being the era we live in, obviously, the social media babe at Jane Iredale responded with a very helpful answer within minutes. I may be using too much, different tips to apply and then the offer to send the Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Basic Manual (gifted) because it’s bound to be a match made in heaven…. And guys, let me tell you.

I am so obsessed with the base combination.

I don’t remember how I was told to apply it and to be honest, I don’t care. My favorite way is to mix these two together and it creates a super creamy consistency that is super blendable. A little goes a long way, so less is more with these two, especially the BB cream as the pigmentation is next level. I find it offers a decent medium coverage that’s removable and lets the skin breathe so you don’t feel like you’re wearing a mask. Exactly what I want in the 40 degree heat we’ve been having.

Essentially, it’s a dream blend that gives me full coverage without looking cakey AND lasts well throughout the day.The best part? You still get a really beautiful glow without it being too intense, so I find I’m less sweaty and more like ‘oh hey girl, you’re shiny AF’. My top tip is: don’t give up products you love for a feature, experiment with the combinations you’re using it with and be patient because sometimes you really do find the best thing since sliced bread.
