The Dual Identity foundation retails for $28 and is available in the following shades: Bisque, Cream, Linen, Natural, Sand, Wheat, Praline, and Raw Sugar. I received the Natural shade, Revitalizing Day Serum, and #3 Domed Foundation brush to review.
Before I get to the foundation and serum I have to talk about how much I love this brush! I've tried other powder foundation brushes before that seemed too "loose," for lack of a better word, and due to this all of the powder would just fly off into the air when I would go to apply it. The bristles on this brush are super soft and nice and dense so they pick up a lot of the powder without releasing too much into the air, resulting in a lot less waste.
The Revitalizing Day Serum is also quite nice. It has a silky texture and felt a bit heavy when I first applied it, but it absorbed into my skin quickly and didn't leave my feeling greasy or anything. I used this as a base for the Dual Identity foundation.
Here's what I look like before and after using the powder. As you can see from the before photo, I have some patches of redness on my cheeks, nose, and forehead. The Natural shade was a perfect match for my yellow undertones and medium skin and pretty much erases the redness. I only needed one coat for pretty full coverage, and I loved this because, like I said previously, I don't want to have a ton of makeup on my face in the summer. I was so impressed by the coverage that this powder gives, it's far above any other powder foundation I've tried! It also has pretty good staying power; it lasted through a full eight hour day at work for me.
I didn't try mixing the powder with the serum, but that's definitely a technique I would try once the weather starts to cool off.
