My Review
Ever since I saw the Latina Bella Cosmetics display in Duane Reade, I was very curious about it. It's not too often that you see a company targeted towards Latinas. Actually, I've never seen one. So I was pretty intrigued. The first thing I wanted to try was the foundation. Aside from Revlon Colorstay, I have always had issues with drugstore foundations. it is usually near impossible to find a shade that matches my skintone.

The first thing I liked was how all the shades looked like they had olive or warm tones. Second was how just by looking at the swatches, I saw right away which shade I was most likely to be. You don't know how many times I've stood in the drugstore, contemplating which foundation better matches my skintone.

The first time I used this foundation was to go out to a party. It stayed pretty much intact throughout the night. I really liked it. Now I've worn it several times both with and without face primer, and I have become a big fan of this foundation. It doesn't feel heavy, has buildable coverage and blends smoothly and easily (I have applied with both a foundation brush and makeup sponge and have had no problems with both methods). I just don't like the semi runny formula but it's not a huge issue. It also comes with a tube opening so that you don't waste product. My favorite part about the packaging because it makes application so much easier.

Overall
Pros: very affordable, great packaging, buildable coverage, long-lasting, easy to blend and to apply, shade range, targeted towards WOC (mainly Latinas)
Cons: formula a little runny
Rating: 4.5/5

I would definitely recommend this product, especially to WOC. You don't have to be Latina, I find that women of mixed race or of different nationalities can also use this product. Latina Bella Cosmetics can be found at Duane Reade or you can go to www.mylatinabella.com to check out the foundation and shades that they offer.
