This Danessa Myricks Beauty Foundation Is “Glass Skin” In A Bottle


Danessa Myricks Beauty has been gaining popularity since its launch in 2015 and is now commercialized big brands like Sephora. Fans of the brand marveled at its innovations like the Chrome flake eye topperswhich received rave reviews from makeup artists and editors alike, as did her latest launch, the Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Serum Foundation ($34). The latter was met with immediate fanfare, with some of the videos reviewing the foundation cumulating more than 400,000 views and thousands of comments.

The brand describes the foundation as a “makeup and skincare hybrid” that contains jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid and squalene — all proven moisturizing ingredients. The finish is meant to be dewy, which seems like the perfect base for the “glass skin” trend. As this is the effect that I look for in my foundation products, I immediately knew that I had to test this foundation.

As excited as I was to try the product, I was also excited about the packaging, which is refillable and easy to recycle: the foundation is housed in a plastic tube that unscrews and can be replaced with a brand new one when finished.

As for the foundation itself, the range comes in 26 shades, which the brand says are extremely flexible to cover different skin tones. For my part, I chose the shade 16N, a deep neutral color.

Using my NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation Brush ($15), I applied the product to my skin and was immediately impressed with the coverage. The color match was also very good for my slightly complicated undertone, and the formula blended easily and quickly. As I continued to blend, I noticed an instant glow on my skin, like I had just put on my favorite moisturizer.

After I finished applying foundation, this product immediately established itself as a staple in my makeup collection. Not only was the color match exquisite, but the coverage was also out of this world. I have quite a few post-acne marks and scars, and they were camouflaged with just one coat of product. The dark mark above my lip (which I usually use as an indication of coverage levels) still stood out a bit, but I was blown away by the fact that it was covered in just one layer.

Although not a negative for me, this foundation may need adjusting if you are an oily skin person. My favorite trick is to only define my T-zone with powder, and when I did, I was amazed that a subtle glow was still present in the areas I had mattified with powder.

Not only is this foundation perfect for spring and summer, but honestly, it might also be my go-to foundation all year round due to its versatility. Needless to say, this product quickly achieved holy grail status for me, and it will never leave my makeup collection.
