REVIEW | BOTTEGA VERDE BASE TRUCCO PERLESCENTE - ILLUMINANTE

Hello lovelies~!
I wanna share to you my review about Bottega Verde Base Trucco Perlescente - Illuminante (Luminous Pearly Makeup Base).



DESCRIPTION
It gives the face a radiant appearance thanks to the light refraction effects of Mica. It hides imperfections and makes the complexion look perfectly even. Light and rapidly absorbed, it can be used alone or mixed with a normal foundation. The decorative function is combined with the moisturizing action, of vegetable origin glycerine, the softening action provided by the presence of Peach Nut Oil and the anti-oxidizing, and therefore anti-age action, provided by the presence of Vitamin E.
Skin: for all skin types.
Actions: gives radiance and hides skin imperfections on the face, softening action.
Directions for use: apply an amount of the size of a nut to a well cleansed skin and massage well to make sure it is perfectly even; then apply your normal make-up products.
Scent: delicate talc-based fragrance
Suggestions: for those who want a radiant and even complexion and visibly improve their daily make-up result.
Characteristics: easy to apply emulsion with a pearlescent effect.
Texture: medium consistency cream.
Application area: face and neck.


The packaging is a simple tube made of plastic and the cream has a medium consistency, as it is described by the brand.



MY OPINION
It is my first time to use a makeup base, I have always use my daily face cream before applying a BB Cream or a foundation.
This makeup base has a delicate scent and it really gives radiance and hides skin imperfections on the face and has a softening action.
It is also perfect to use it alone - you don't need to wear on a foundation if you want to have a "highlighted" effect on your face.
I bought this product for €1.99 and it normally costs €15.49 and it contains 30 ml.
There is only one available shade of this product, and the colour is peach, though in this image below the colour is more like bisque - and it contains some micro glitters.

This is how it looks when you spread the product.

You won't see any trace of the product if you spread it well on your face - you only need a small amount of it to apply on your face - and its creamy texture makes it easily absorbed by your skin.

WOULD YOU BUY IT AGAIN? WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT TO A FRIEND?
Yes, I will definitely buy it again. I will recommend it to a friend unless she doesn't have oily skin type because it will make a "glowing" effect on her face.
