Askmewhats Reviews: I Nuovi Litebase Foundation

Gorgeous friends!
Happy start of the week! I am not on my usual Monday Blues because I am glad to be back to work! Meaning, I don't need to take a leave from work to be in the hospital! I am happy to be hospital free! I am happy I don't see nurses and doctors for now!!!!
THANK YOU again for all the well wishes, I can't thank everyone enough for the love and concern!!!!

Now, Manic Monday seems like a thing in the past! ....for now :P

Let's get down to business! As seen on my previous "Askmewhats Version: My I nuovi Face" post, a lot of you emailed me and asked me about the foundation. A lot of you complimented about the glow of my skin and I wasn't even aware of it til I saw the photos!

This is the reason

I Nuovi Litebase
Light Diffusing Liquid Foundation

Inuovi Litebase Light Diffusing Liquid Foundation says ---

A lightweight foundation with light diffusing action that blends magically from liquid to powder finish.

How to apply

Squeeze adequate amount onto the palm of your hand. Dot foundation on t-zone, under the eye and blend well onto the skin. Apply foundation on the remaining parts of the face. Blend well. Set with powder if desired.

Askmewhats says ---

  • super lightweight
  • easy to blend
  • non-drying
  • very pretty on photos
  • no weird smell, imagine the scent of MAC's Studio Fix liquid foundation but 5x lighter
  • packaging: because it's made of plastic, you can carry this around anywhere
  • absorbs to the skin within matter of 5-10 seconds
  • gives out a nice healthy glow
  • at first glance on the price, it looks expensive but there's actually more product compared to other liquid foundation, 35ml for I Nuovi compared to most brands 30ml
  • light coverage, needs concealing
  • they could do better with the look of their packaging
  • not easily available locally

Because of my dry skin, I was to use Litebase as it moisturizes my skin and gave me the soft dewy look. If you are on the oily side, I believe I Nuovi has a different formulated foundation callled Gel Base Sheer Finish Gel Foundation that can control oily skin.

I believe a lot of us are too lazy to use liquid foundation daily due to it's messiness and heavy feel. With this foundation, it finishes up like a press powder, it feels like a tinted moisturizer with a bit more coverage.

I really like this for daily use!

  • correct or conceal spots before using this foundation due to it's very light coverage
  • use a sponge or in my case, I use a stippling brush to apply
  • for very dry skin: No need to pat on face powder as it finishes up non-oily and has a nice glow
  • if you are afraid to oil up at the end of the day: pat on loose powder or blot your face with oil film
Will I repurchase?
