It’s officially Springtime!
In this in-between of winter foundation and summer foundation, I have finally found the perfect addition to my beauty line-up: The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops.
These drops are total life savers. They retail for $20 a bottle, and they will transform any foundation into the right color. They also do not change the finish or the coverage of many foundations, however, with a very matte foundation (such as Kat Von D) the drops may alter the finish a little bit (but I haven’t tested it out on anything very matte yet).
I recently picked up the Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme in the shade Buttercup, which is just a teensy bit too dark for my skin once it oxidizes. I added two drops of the Lightening Shade Adjusting Drops and was able to create my perfect color. And although the Lightening drops are pink in tone, they did not affect the yellow undertone of my foundation.
The actual dropper is not the greatest. It blows out air bubbles with the drops, so prepare for a little bit of a mess.
If you are looking to adjust your foundation color without purchasing a new shade, then these drops will definitely work for you!
