The blue heaven florina foundation comes in a cute little glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The glass bottle comes in an outer cardboard that has all necessary information in it. The foundation bottle is cute but not travel friendly. The cap of the bottle is not at all tight and it opens easily. So if you travel with this foundation then it will be a great mess. The cap doesn’t shut properly. The glass bottle is heavy so , it is not apt for travelling.
Packaging rating 3.7/5
The blue heaven florina foundation comes only in 2 shades. The shades are saffron glow and natural glow. There is not much difference between the 2 shades and they both look almost similar on your face. Am in the shade saffron glow. Initially I thought it will have pink under tone and it won’t suit my skin but it is not at all pink and it is slightly on the orange undertone. There is no shade for even wheatish skinned beauties let alone the dusky skin.
Shade range rating 2.3/5
The blue heaven florina foundation is worst in this part. I read great reviews about this product in nykaa, some said that it melts into skin like butter. Oh God !! It is not at all true in my case. This foundation never blends quickly. I have tried this foundation on all skin types in order to review this properly, but it took time to blend irrespective of the skin type. I tried it on my oily skin, my mom’s dry skin and also on one of my cousin who has normal skin. This blue heaven florina foundation took time to blend on all skin types.
It just settles into your pores and fine lines and it becomes really tough to blend properly.It dries of quickly. So you must be an expert in order to blend this or you should have patience to blend this. Don’t ever blend this with your fingers as mentioned on the packaging.It just makes your skin look pale and patchy. It blends only with sponge. So don’t try to blend this with brush or finger. Try to use blender or foundation sponge.
Blend ability rating 1.5/5
After blending this blue heaven florina foundation settles to a semi matte finish. It is not completely matte nor dewy somewhere between these. I personally like matte finish since I have super oily skin. Since this foundation is semi matte. This suits all skin types.
Blue heaven florina foundation is nowhere near high coverage foundation as claimed. The coverage is between sheer to medium. Since I blend this with colorbar peppy duo foundation sponge, this gives sheer coverage. This foundation will just even out your skin. It doesn’t hide spots and scars as claimed. I have acne scars on my cheeks, it doesn’t cover them nor I expect this to do. It gives coverage that garnier BB cream gives. You can’t built this foundation’s coverage since it goes cakey and patchy with layering.
Rating 2.5/5(-2.5 for false claim of high coverage and concealing spots)
The staying power of this foundation is quite decent. This stays on my oily skin for about 4 hours without primer and stays 6 hours with primer. After which it starts to crease. It stays for quite long time on dry to normal skin
I don’t think that this blue heaven florina foundation is a must try product. Your base should be proper and flawless, so that your whole makeup look is flawless. So i would recommend you to spend some extra bucks and try some good foundation. If you are in a tight budget then you can give this foundation a try. If you want any base product in this price range I would suggest you to go for BB creams rather investing in this foundation.Beginners will find this to be difficult to blend. So this foundation is not recommended for beginners.
OVERALL RATING 3/5
