Speed Review: Accessorize Picture Perfect Long Lasting Foundation

Wow, what a week- sorry for my silence readers. On with today's post...
I'm a big fan of Accessorize. I find it odd that there's not really any other shop like it on the High Street, offering affordable, trend-led accessories. Having said this, I wouldn't think to buy foundation from Accessorize but I was recently sent a parcel of products from the makeup line to try.
My first impression was how pretty the packaging is. Admittedly, you can tell it's budget but it's functional nonetheless and I like the fun, whimsical design.

The foundation itself has quite a thick creamy formula that almost has a waxy quality. I found it smooth to apply albeit a little difficult to blend. I found there to be quite strong yellow undertones to the shade I was sent but it was a pretty good colour match. It's available in five shades: Sandcastle, Soft Fawn, Warm Honey, Wheat & Biscuit so not a particularly extensive range.

For me, the finish is quite "done" so it's not one for those who like a very natural finish. I found the coverage to be medium and I could feel it on my skin which might be due to the inclusion of SPF20. I liked the dewy finish it gave my complexion and I was impressed with the lasting results.
I'd definitely recommend checking this out if you're looking for a new foundation on a budget. It costs £8 which I feel is a fair price.
On a final note, I was also sent the Collagen Mascara. I love discovering a fab new mascara and when I clapped eyes on this one, in its bright pink Union Jack packagaing, I had high expectations so I was really disappointed with the results which barely made any difference to my lashes.
