Update: I am no longer actively selling SeneGence, BUT I still swear by this foundation (as well as SeneGence’s Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer). I continue to use it and have not found anything that works as well as it does yet. #reallifereview 😉
LipSense is my makeup game changer, but there are a ton of other products from Senegence that I’ve been adding to my wish list.
The perfect foundation is something I’m always on the hunt for. So, when I saw multiple rave reviews for SeneGence’s Advanced Anti-Aging MakeSense Foundation, I had to give it a shot.
What makes SeneGence beauty products unique is their ability to last an extra-long time. Like LipSense, their other products are meant to last all day, too. This has always been an issue for me because I have oily skin (especially in my T zone). I’d come home for my lunch break only to see that I had to do some major touching up because my foundation was nowhere to be found on my chin and around my nose.
THE DETAILS: The foundation is formulated with SenePlex Complex+ and SeneShield, two of the most advanced anti-aging and skin protective products around. It includes ingredients that actually help to minimize damage previously caused by exposure to daily toxins. It is mineral free, oil free, and water-resistant so it doesn’t clog your pores like other foundations will.
THE REVIEW: I have used Advanced Anti-Aging MakeSense Foundation almost every day for over two weeks now. I have not seen improvements to my skin overall (as far as diminishing fine lines or tightening anything up), but I didn’t expect it to this quickly.
I used the foundation with products from other brands. I applied moisturizer, primer, MakeSense foundation, concealer, translucent powder, and setting spray. I used a damp Real Techniques beauty sponge to blend in the foundation. It has a medium to full coverage, but I added a little more because I like to cover up my acne scars.
The MakeSense foundation did not prevent my skin from getting oily, but I did notice a significant difference in how long the foundation stayed on my skin. It lasted all day (roughly 7a-8p) and it did not disappear on my chin or around my nose where it normally would have with other foundations I’ve used in the past.
I have been wearing Milani’s Perfect 3-in-1 foundation for the past few months. It has previously been the best foundation to fit my needs, but I can say that SeneGence’s Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation has replaced it. Not having to worry about reapplying my foundation throughout the day is such a relief!
