Here is an image of the product and as you can see I have nearly used this up. Tje product comes in a glass jar with a black lid that screws off. I do find this quite bulky to store and the lid is looking pretty grubby so I’m not a huge fan of the packaging. The price of this product is £10.50 which I think is on the expensive side of drugstore and a little overpriced for this product.In terms of the formula this is strange, I apply this foundation with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge as I didn’t think fingers would work too well and I didn’t want to ruin one of my brushes by clogging it up with this. I think the sponge is a better way to apply it on evenly.
The mousse formula does cling to dry skin rather than glide over it which disappointed me and I did find that even with a sponge this cakes on so I always have to blend it in with my fingers after to prevent flakiness or cakiness.
This disappointed me in the fact that despite such a thick consistency of product, when I apply this to bare skin it is horrible, so I do need to apply a thin layer of my Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation underneath before applying this.

What does save this product from being a failure is the colour Ivory which actually matches my skin and goes on paler than it looks in the photo, and the fact that this has a beautiful matte finish and even coverage. No sweaty looking dewy face for me.
This wears relatively well but does start to go a bit patchy towards the end of the day. I’m also not a fan of having to use another foundation underneath this one, to me it just kind of defeats the purpose really.
I wouldn’t repurchase this and despite the nice finish I wouldn’t recommend it simply because it’s too much of a faf especially if you are in a rush in a morning.
The Avon Ideal Flawless Matte Mousse Foundation is available here for £10.50.
