Essence Soft Touch Mousse Foundation

I am trying out lots of different foundations at the moment. Like I have said my usual favourite foundation is Estee Lauder Double wear but seen as it is quite pricey I have gone in search of some cheaper alternatives.

I noticed my mom using the Essence Soft Touch Mousse Foundation and decided to give it a try. I have heard great things about the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation and wondered how it would compare.

I tried out the colour- 02 Matt Beige.
I use a Real Techniques Stippling Brush to apply the product.

Good News-
Very affordable at approx. €4 for a 16g jar.
The packaging is quite dainty, with a lovely glass jar. Also very compact, great for throwing in your handbag.
Foundation is light weight and feels like silk on the skin.

Bad News-
Lasting power is not great, probably lasts about 4/5 hours on my skin.
Not much colours to choose from- 5 in the range.

Even though the foundation does not last as long as other brands, I really loved the colour and the feel of the foundation on my skin.  I simply touched up the foundation throughout the day to keep up the coverage. The small jar is still lasting me after 2 full weeks of use.

Has anyone else tried out this foundation?
