Face Atelier Ultra Pro Foundation 20ml
FACE atelier is strongly against animal testing. Period. Approval by CCIC and PETA is the industry gold standard and the best assurance for consumers that no animal testing is used in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or suppliers. Even without the approval of PETA and the CCIC, we still wouldn't test on animals. Because at FACE atelier, we want to sleep at night.
FACE atelier Ultra Foundation Pro features all 19 shades of our beloved Ultra Foundation in a smaller, lightweight and unbreakable container that’s ideal for travel and perfect for a makeup artist’s kit. Definitely a Pro must-have! Especially the Full Set that includes 19 shades, including the 5 adjusters.
Ultra Foundation, the heart and soul of FACE atelier and the star of the line, is an innovative approach to foundation that allows you to be in control. It’s a highly pigmented, long-lasting innovative foundation that provides buildable coverage with a natural-looking, dewy finish. Silicone-based Ultra Foundation is sheer enough for younger women, yet can meet the needs of anyone that requires more coverage. It’s an out-standing performer on mature, troubled or sensitive skin. Due to its unique blend of silicones in the formulation, Ultra Foundation forms a delicate, lightweight and flexible second skin with a natural breathing ability. Read more about silicones.
No primer needed! It's built into Ultra Foundation, thanks to the super sophisticated, silicone-based formula. Another bonus - it sets without powder, preserving the dewy finish - and has soft-focus properties that diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Offering 18 shades, Ultra Foundation is AGE and RACE NEUTRAL, unique color adjustors - Zero Minus, Zero Plus, Zero Plus Plus, Heat and Blaze. The adjusters will lighten or darken a shade as desired. Superstar Heat can be used to warm them up and doubles as an ideal blush for women of color. The result is your very own custom foundation all year round, even as your skin tone changes with the seasons. Moisture, heat and sebum resistant.
Cylcomethicone l Cetyl Dimethicone - Silicones are derived from silica that is derived from quartz, the second most naturally occurring mineral on earth. They impart emolliency and significantly enhance a product’s lifespan and effectiveness. They create a soft, smooth product that is pleasant to apply and, in the case of cyclomethicone, impart a unique skin feel. Silicones are naturally water resistant while absorbing sebum (the oily substance produced by certain glands in the skin), thus reducing skin shine. Their molecules are larger than human pores, preventing them from settling into them upon application. The unique molecular structure of silicones (larger molecules with wider spaces between each molecule) allows them to form a breathable and protective barrier between skin and the product. They also have unique healing and protecting properties. Silicones ensure an even application of other ingredients and leave behind a silky, almost imperceptible feel that noticeably enhances the skin's texture and appearance.
Glycerin - present in all natural lipids, it’s a humectant that helps prevent dryness and scaling. When combined with other emollients like silicones, it moisturizes while helping skin heal, reduce associated skin conditions as well as enhance the skin’s natural protection. It also helps skin cells mature properly and may heal wounds more quickly.
