Ideal Flawless is a new line by Avon. It consists of a liquid foundation, cream-to-powder foundation and a concealer in a stick form. I’ll review all three products today.
Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation (in Shell)
Satin finish. Tiny silver sparkles make your skin glow.
Very easy to apply. It even looks nice applied with fingers, although I got the nicest and the most airbrushed effect when I applied the foundation with the stippling brush (Real Techniques).
Glass bottle with pump. There’s 30ml of product in the bottle.
In Slovenia right now 14€.
I really like this foundation. It makes my skin glow, but at the same time the skin is not shiny. What I love about this foundation is that it’s so easy to apply and it doesn’t sink into my large pores. It make my skin look healthy. Another thing that I love about this foundation is the coverage. The coverage is good with only one layer.
If you have similar skin than me, than I really recommend this foundation.
Ideal Flawless Cream-To-Powder Foundation (in Shell)
Satin to matte finish.
I had a lot of problems with the application of this foundation. It just never looked nice on my skin. Sometimes it looked cakey on me, sometimes patchy. And I tried different techniques (sponge, stippling, foundation, buffing brush). Nothing actually helped.
Light to medium.
Plastic container, with a separate compartment for the sponge, which is great! There’s 9g of product in the container.
This foundation didn’t work with my skin type. I’m not actually sure if the problem lies in the foundation itself or it just didn’t work with my skin type. My skin is normal to dry and this foundation was a bit too dry for me. But the main problem was, that it didn’t give me enough coverage. I had to put several layers to achieve a good coverage. And also a huge problem for me, it sunk into my large pores. Although that’s not visible in the photo below, this foundation was sitting in my pores rather than hide them (looking from close distance). While the liquid foundation did better job at hiding my pores.
If you have similar skin than me, than I don’t recommend this foundation.
Below is the photo of me before I applied the foundation (so with just the moisturizer on) and after I applied both foundations on. On half of my face cream-to-powder foundation and on the other half the liquid foundation.
Ideal Flawless Concealer (in Fair)
Concealer in a stick form.
Easy to apply with fingers or with a brush, but can sometimes look a bit patchy.
Black plastic. Nothing special and it feels a bit cheap.
In Slovenia 6,5€ right now.
An OK concealer. The shade is to light for me and sometimes it looked patchy on me. It covers nicely. I wouldn’t recommend using it under your eyes to cover your under eye circles, because it will probably crease. Other than that, it’s an OK concealer, but I wouldn’t repurchase it.
Swatches of all three products. Concealer in fair is quite light. It’s actually a bit to white for me. The foundations in Sheel are a bit too dark for me at the moment and they are ornange-y, which is OK for me, because I get orange-y when my skin is a bit darker, but I know for some people this can be a problem.
Have you tried any of the Avon’s foundations before? Which ones do you like?

Sem probala že veliko njihovih podlag pa so mi vse nekako pretemne/oranžne, tako da mislim, da mi tudi tale ne bo ustrezala (moja koža je kar precej svetlejša od tvoje pa še mnogo bolj roza, kar ne paše skupaj z oranžnim podtonom podlage).
Tale odtenek je res precej oranžen. Mislim, da je v Calming Effects liniji nekaj odtenkov, ki potegnejo na roza, ne vem pa, ali bi bili dovolj svetli zate. Sicer pa če bi ti slučajno bilo kaj v pomoč, sem tukaj objavila fotko nekaterih odtenkov, ki sem jih dobila kot testerje: http://www.parokeets.com/sl/2012/03/playing-around-with-avon-stuff-notd-fotd/
Res škoda, da ni več odtenkov, ker tale zgoraj opisana tekoča podlaga je res krasna!
What shade are you in MAC?
In the photos above I’m somewhere between NC15 and NC20 (Studio Fix Fluid). You can read more about my skin here: http://www.parokeets.com/en/2012/04/project-foundation-introduction-post-by-maestra/ ;)
