The Unsung Hero Series, ahhh I nearly forgot about this! But yeah, it's been awhile since I found a product worth including in this series! And finally, I'm ready to update this segment with the new Artistry Exact Fit Longwearing Foundation.
I've had this foundation in my makeup kit for quite some time, more than 3 months to be exact! I've been meaning to post a simple review about this but I can't help but try it on different occasions, telling myself there is something unique about this product.
According to Amway ---
"Lock in the 24-Hour Look of Flawless Perfection. Your key to round-the-clock, natural-looking perfection begins with our breakthrough Color Lock technology. No matter the activity, heat, or humidity, perfectly calibrated pigments are expertly time- and climate-controlled to constantly know their place, and stay there for up to 24 hours of comfort wear. Now, every minute of every day, it’s always your moment to look perfectly flawless."
It comes in a glass packaging with pump that won my heart. Now let's talk about the foundation itself.
Based from box and bottle description, seems this is meant for Japanese Market, everything's written in Japanese but the packaging says: Made in USA. With manufacturing date clearly printed, this can last for a year once you open the product.
The shade I got is in Natural which is a tad bit darker than my original face color but matches perfectly when you compare it on my neck! Yes guys, my love for brightening skincare products work! My face is indeed lighter as compared to the rest of my body! *laughs*
As for first impression upon application, I felt the product is too thick for my liking! Yes, it gives an instant medium-heavy to full coverage in just a few amount of product but I felt like I have something on! So yeah, first impression wasn't as positive as most makeup products I've tried. But after leaving it for a few minutes, the product sets and appear flawless against my skin!

Before and After
As you can see on photos, the foundation matches the rest of my body completely. It gives of a matte finish but never the "dry effect". It covers undereye darkness and red spots.
Now let's talk about moisture, the foundation would work on most skin types I would say! Even with dry skin, this doesn't create dry patches. If you have extremely oily skin, this may give a bit of oil-control but an extra help from an oil-control primer or a bit of oil-control powder to set the foundation may do!
Honestly speaking, this product took time for me to really fall in love with! I guess it is the thickness in texture that put me off but after wearing it for a couple of times for SO MANY OCCASIONS, I find that the longer and the more times you wear this, the more you'll fall in love with this.
With the Artistry Exact Fit Longwearing Foundation, the name longwearing isn't a joke! I wore this for 10 hours straight without retouch and my skin looks as healthy as fresh! I may need to apply a bit of powder on the undereye area and the center of my face for "security" but overall, it holds until makeup removal!
So definitely a foundation worth giving a try if you're aiming for full coverage that lasts the whole day!
