Get Glowing Skin That Lasts All Day Long
Lately, my focus has been on trying to make healthy choices and use my time as efficiently as possible. No matter who you are – there is only so much time in a day. Frankly, I do not have time to think about my foundation. When Senna Lasting Illusion Satin Matte Foundation arrived with the promise of lasting 16 hours, I could not wait to give it a test drive.
Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation ($48) is housed in a substantial glass bottle with fabulous little pump. I love the packaging because it is not only pretty but, it is efficient. The pump assists with what I call portion control. It is easy to use, even when you just need a little more like a half or a quarter pump. This translates into less waste, mess and keeps everything more sanitary. Overall, I think it extends the life of the product and helps you get your money’s worth.
This is a high quality foundation and delivers the best of the satin and matte worlds. I know this sounds confusing but, it truly delivers. It captures and reflects light while diffusing skin imperfections like redness, wrinkles and fine lines. This helps those of us who are constantly negotiating with Mother Time to look a bit younger.
The other great news is that it does not settle into fine lines, pores, or anything else that you don’t want to draw attention. It is not exactly a full coverage foundation because I still needed a bit of concealer. Yet, the coverage is very buildable and easy to apply.
Tip: Senna recommends applying this foundation in the center of your face and blend outward with a sponge. I will confess I am not much of a sponge girl so, I used my fingers. If you can do a good job of blending with fingers it really speaks to what kind of product you are working with. This foundation passed the finger test with flying colors.
The new Senna Lasting Illusion Foundation is available in 7 shades:
Alabaster – pale ivory for fair skin tones
Buff – light beige for light skin tones

All in all, Senna does deliver its promise of a long-lasting foundation. It is very easy to use and with just a tiny bit of setting powder my face looks flawless and younger. Plus it has helped me save some time during busy days as my skin rarely needs a touch-up!
