Reviewing Beautycounter’s new featherweight Skin Twin foundation, available in 27 gorgeous, breathable shades, EWG-verified formula, & truly feels like your skin!
Hi everyone! This week Beautycounter launched a NEW & improved foundation called Skin Twin, which is actually replacing the fan favorite, Tint Skin, which was a hydrating, lightweight foundation! Skin Twin is a total upgrade though…this new formula is breathable, way more buildable than Tint Skin, & is PACKED with skincare benefits which helps to leave your skin feeling SO hydrated, while also helping to smooth & even out your complexion! I’ve been wearing it for little over a week & absolutely love it & love the way it feels on my skin, so of course, I wanted to share my full review!
Q: What’s so great about this new Skin Twin foundation?
It’s 100% my new makeup go-to, here’s why!
- Second-Skin Wear – Seriously feels like your skin!! It blends seamlessly into your skin, providing a beautiful, breathable, natural finish!
- Lasting Coverage – Lasts all day!
- Skincare Benefits – Packed with skincare level hyaluronic acid which helps to visibly plump, smooth, & even your skin while you wear it! Also helps to minimize fine lines & really helps your skin hold in hydration throughout the day!
- Safe Ingredients – Not only is Skin Tint tested for traces of heavy metals, but each & every ingredient is meticulously screened & formulated without the use of over 1,800 harmful ingredients!
- EWG-Verified – Meaning this foundation meets the strictest standards safe for human health!
- Sustainable – Comes in a beautiful frosted glass bottle, which contributes to Beautycounter’s sustainability initiative, helping to reduce plastic when possible!
Q: How does Skin Twin differ from Tint Skin?
A: Tint Skin, which is what the new Skin Twin foundation is replacing, is our old formula & will still be available on the Beautycounter site under “Last Chance” until it runs out. For any Tint Skin lovers out there, this new Skin Twin formula has improved wear time, coverage buildability, & has 9x more hyaluronic acid! It also comes in elevated, sustainable glass packaging, & is EWG-verified!
Q: How many shades are available?
A: The Skin Twin foundation is available in 27 beautiful shades!
Q: What’s the coverage like?
A: The coverage is definitely light to medium depending on how much product you use. One pump of the foundation will definitely give you light, natural looking coverage & two pumps, which is the amount I’ve been using, will definitely give you medium coverage. Since this foundation builds nicely, I’m sure you could add another half or full pump if you’re looking to achieve a fuller coverage look! I personally really like the coverage two pumps gives me. My skin still looks like my skin but my redness & acne scars are able to be covered, especially with the extra help of my concealer!
Q: What is the finish of this foundation?
A: The Skin Twin provides a natural looking finish that literally feels like your skin, only better! When I wear my Skin Twin, it seriously doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing anything on my skin, which is the best feeling!
Q: Is Skin Twin suitable for all skin types?
A: Yes! If you struggle with excess oil, try applying our Mattifying Powder on top! And if you have dry skin, this foundation should help you with hydration due to the hyaluronic acid, but if you find that you’re looking for a bit more hydration, try adding in a drop of one of our face oils! I love adding a drop of our Balancing or Vitamin C oil, not only does it help with hydration, but gives your skin the prettiest glow!
Q: Best way(s) to apply Skin Twin?
A: I love to apply my Skin Twin foundation with a damp beauty sponge. I start with one pump of the foundation on the back of my hand & with my Better Blender, apply it directly to my face. I like the coverage that two pumps give me, so with my sponge, I’m able to build the foundation up to meet my coverage needs!
You can definitely apply it with your fingers too, especially if you’re going for a more natural coverage look! The third way to apply Skin Twin would be to use a brush! The Retractable Foundation Brush is a favorite within the Beautycounter community, it’s perfect if you’re looking for a feathered out & natural application!
Q: How can I best find my shade?
A: If you head over to the Beautycounter site, you’ll find an amazing Shade Finder tool! This tool will help assist you in choosing the best shade based on your skin tone! You’ll want to first identify your shade category (fair, light, medium, tan, dark, or deep) which will then make it easier to single in on the right shade!
Q: What shade of Skin Twin do you wear?
A: I wear shade L210 & L230.
Q: Can I wear this with an SPF?
A: Yes, of course! You can apply sunscreen to your face prior to applying your foundation OR my favorite…add a little Dew Skin, which is our sheer tinted moisturizer with SPF 20, & then go in with your Skin Twin!
Q: Does it have a scent?
A: Nope! This foundation is fragrance free!
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Skin Twin costs $50 USD | $62 CAD.
Q: Will it be a part of the Flawless in Five?
A: Yes! So since you’re able to choose base product within the Flawless in Five makeup bundle, you now get to choose between Dew Skin which is our tinted moisturizer & the Skin Twin Foundation! I definitely think this is the way to go, especially if your makeup bag needs a little revamp! You can read my Flawless in Five Makeup review here!
