I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but there’s a growing number of serum foundations in the beauty market lately. We have Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Foundation With Comfort Serum, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation, Bare Minerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation, Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation and many more. Some of them have the word “serum” in their names for the serum-like texture and some of them actually have serums with skincare ingredients in them. And then we also have Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist Youth Infusion foundation, which actually has their Perfectionist serum’s ingredients infused with the foundation.
With all these serum + foundation thingamabobs, I smelled an experiment coming on. So I gathered a few bottles from my foundation stash and a few serums that I have, and I wanted to know: does mixing serum with foundations work? Does mixing of serum with foundation actually make the foundation better? Does it help improve our skin?
