The amount of money I have wasted on foundation over the years is quite possibly ridiculous. I am pale, if you’ve read any of my previous foundation posts you’ll know that I’m paler than pale. (My boyfriend sometimes calls me a ghost, and he’s not far wrong) So I’ve been after a white foundation to mix with my regular ones, that was until I saw these Shade Adjusting Drops from The Body Shop.
This magical little bottle contains a concentration of white and pink pigments which you can add to your existing foundation. According to The Body Shop, 1 drop = 1/2 a shade lighter. I have a couple of foundations which I just decided to chuck because it took about 7 drops to change them to the right shade, and yes these were the ‘lightest’ shade available! However, you will be amazed at how quickly you see the shade transform. The pigment in the drops needs mixing which I usually do with my finger or a q-tip, yes you end up wasting some of your foundation but you don’t have to throw it away so it is basically a win in my eyes.
I am really happy I got them, they weren’t the cheapest at £10 for a bottle but as a little goes a long way, (and I got a spend £25 get £10 off voucher which I inevitably will spend.) Also this little bottle allows me to save foundations that otherwise would be wasted, such as my ‘light’ Clinique BB Cream!
The Body Shop also do darkening drops too, so if you find your foundation too dark you can use it to darken the foundation, also some people use it to contour. Have you tried them, would you plan to?
