If you’re anything like me, you’ve tried many different foundations and tinted moisturizers over the years (and more recently, many different BB creams). I’ve tried different products trying to find the right combination of coverage, skin beneficial ingredients, overall look and most importantly a perfect shade match. Each time, I typically describe my new makeup find as “the best so far”, “the closest match”. I’ve always thought it would be perfect if only it were lighterweight, it was just a pinch less orange, etc. – until now. Prescriptives recently launched Live Chat Custom Blend appointments with their Beauty Geniuses. Now anyone can have a personal consultation with an expert and have their own bespoke Custom Blend Foundation and Powder created. All you need is 20 minutes, hi-speed WiFi and a webcam.
During the Live Chat consultation with my Custom Blend Specialist, I was asked questions about the type of coverage for which I was looking, what did I like about past foundation products, what did I not like, etc. She also asked what current products I was using. Since I was in the convenience of my own home I was able to run and get them and tell her the actual shades to help her better pinpoint the ingredients needed for my recipe. I was also asked to upload a photo of myself since webcam quality, backlighting, etc. can vary. My Custom Blend Specialist, Nikki, was very knowledgable about not only the Prescriptives foundation and powder formulations, but also other brands which enabled her to recommend different skincare options (moisturizer) and finishes to add to my custom products based on the other products that I used in the past and liked.
After our Live Chat, Nikki took her notes from the session, along with my uploaded photo to develop my Custom Blend Recipe. The following day, I received an email indicating that my Custom Blend Recipe was available to purchase online. Custom Blend Foundation costs $65 and Custom Blend Powder is $48. Once Custom Blend items are ordered in takes 7-10 business days for processing.
As expected, my Custom Blend Foundation and Powder match my skin perfectly and have all of the features on my makeup wishlist - natural looking; enough coverage to perfect my skin, but not too heavy; oil minimizing and luminescent. As a bonus, the Custom Blend Foundation and Powder each come with a TSA-approved travel size so you can be photoready during your travels!
The consultation was fun, easy and most importantly resulted in spot-on products. I will definitely be consulting with one of Prescriptives’ Beauty Geniuses to have a Custom Blend Foundation and Powder developed to match by summer skintone!
