Recently I’ve been going through an obsession with being healthy. This is not just in my home with the food I eat, but also with the products that I use. I don’t know how long this will last for;) But while it does, I’m enjoying discovering more natural products that I didn’t know about before. This Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation is one such product. Their whole range looks truly delightful but the baked foundation stood out the most to me. I knew I had to get my hands on it…
What is a Baked Foundation?
Many of you may not be familiar with baked products. So let me explain what they are. They are exactly like they sound – baked. They are usually creams that have been baked for a period of time transforming them into a solid powder. The solid powder is often marbleised in appearance making them really pretty! These products have a beautiful creamy texture to them. The advantage of baked products is that they often have fewer ingredients. This makes them healthier for our skin. You can apply baked products either wet or dry due to their origin of being a cream. They are also known for their ultra-smooth application. Its definitely worth giving these baked products a try! I am already a fan:)
Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation
I’ll start with the packaging because I am oh so obsessed with it. I have this thing for cute packaging and this one scores high. It comes in a lovely wooden box which screams out organic and natural. I love how appropriate and fitting the packaging is for an organic product. Not only that, it’s incredibly pretty too:)
So what is this foundation all about? Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation is a luxurious baked powder foundation. It provides uniformity to the skin and brightens the complexion. No jokes here, it really does all that. The foundation offers light refracting properties to cover up any imperfections. It covers the imperfections really well and at the same time it looks really natural. Go figure! It blends beautifully and gives the skin a flawless finish. I love the texture, it feels so luxurious and lovely. It has a beautiful matte finish, that stays matte even in hot climates which is quite an achievement.
Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation comes in 5 shades.
- Light – Ideal for fair to light skin tones.
- Medium Beige – Great for light to medium skin tones.
- Medium Dark – Great for medium to tanned skin.
- Nude – Perfect for tanned, golden skin.
- Dark – Perfect for deeper skin tones.
Usually when there are only 5 shades, I complain that it is no where near enough to suit everyone’s skin shades. But, with this product its different. You see, the shades are made to adapt to the skin and they do exactly that. They add natural colour to your face, giving you a look like you’ve just been to the beach. This baked foundation is the perfect product for these summer months.
How to apply
There are 2 ways to apply the Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation. You can either use it as a setting on top of your foundation, or you can use it as the foundation itself. If you are using it as a foundation the best way to apply it is with a kabuki brush. Make sure you are rubbing the foundation into your skin with the brush. This will keep the foundation lasting longer. Another way to keep it lasting all day is to dampen your face before you apply your foundation. This created a base for the foundation to stick to. If you are using it as a setting for on top of foundation, apply lightly with a powder brush.
It feels really light and silky on the skin. It’s very build-able so if you apply a lot of layers it’s high coverage. It lasts really well throughout the day and stays matte too.
This is a must have product! It does everything a foundation should do, with the added bonus that it’s good for your skin. Not only is it good for your skin, it also looks beautiful on. This product is quite similar to the Laura Geller Balance n Brighton but without the unnatural ingredients and chemicals. If you like that, you’ll love this! The one downside to the foundation that I can think of is that the packaging is a bit bulky. However, if you have space, then it shouldn’t be an issue. If you don’t have space…make space! It’s THAT worth it!
I love it that with the Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation you can achieve the ultimate flawless skin without it being at the expense of your skins health. This was the philosophy that inspired the brand Antonym and a philosophy I would love to see more of in the beauty world:)
