Kat Stays Polished | Beauty Blog with a Dash of Life: Victoria Jackson - "No Make Up Make Up" Foundation Duo

Victoria Jackson - "No Make Up Make Up" Foundation Duo

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Hey guys! Are you ready for Thanksgiving??? Today I have a review of the "No Make Up Make Up" Foundation Duos from Victoria Jackson. I don't usually use foundations in a compact but this looked like it could be ok. It's got a really creamy formula so it's a breeze to apply. 

Here is a little bit about Victoria Jackson:
Having achieved success as a Hollywood makeup artist, cosmetics entrepreneur and TV infomercial pioneer, Victoria Jackson prefers to think of herself as “a goodwill ambassador for makeup.” When women embrace self-confidence, she says, they learn the key to success, and liking who they see in the mirror is a powerful first step in that transformative process. “My personal philosophy has always been, ‘When you look better, you feel better. And when you feel better, you can change your life,’” says Jackson, who in the last dozen years has volunteered hundreds of hours at women’s correctional facilities, hospitals and youth support venues, 
teaching inner confidence through outer beauty. 

A recognized trailblazer in the cosmetics and infomercial industries, Jackson has racked up eleven of them for her eponymous line Victoria Jackson Cosmetics, which has enjoyed an astounding billion dollars in makeup sales, and continues to grow. Jackson has also reached thousands of women through her two briskly selling books: Redefining Beauty: Discovering Your Individual Beauty, Enhancing Your Self-Esteem (Warner Books, 1993) and Make Up Your Life: Every Woman’s Guide to the Power of Makeup (HarperCollins, 2000), a deeply personal account of her experiences in the business which she calls one of her proudest achievements.

An active philanthropist, Victoria’s newest charity is near and dear to her heart. The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation is dedicated to funding basic science research to find answers that will lead to the prevention, clinical treatment programs and a cure for Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) Spectrum Disease. More information about NMO and the foundation can be found at www.guthyjacksonfoundation.org.

Married to husband Bill Guthy of infomercial giant Guthy-Renker, Victoria Jackson is a proud mom of 
three children and together they make their primary residence in Los Angeles.

Let's take a look at the packaging and then we'll move on to the swatches.

The foundation compacts are tucked nicely inside a basic box. Once you take it out and open the compact, you have your foundation duo on one side, a mirror up top, and an applicator on the bottom. For my review, I used my stippling brush and swiped it a few times on both color. I had to mix these because the light was too light for me. 

Victoria Jackson sent me both the medium tone and the tan tone to try. Since I get really dark in the summer [and live in Florida], I was worried that the medium tones were going to be too light for my skin. I found that the darkest of the medium and the lightest of the tan was good enough to not need bronzer.

Here are the swatches of each side of each duo plus a swatch of the two colors mixed.

Overall I really like this foundation. It blends nicely into my skin and it lasts all day. My face is generally oily so of course I had to blot throughout the day, but adding a setting powder to my face at the beginning of the day helps to keep my face nice and matte.

If you'd like to try this foundation for yourself, Victoria Jackson is offering my readers a 20% off discount! Just use code: BLOG2013 at checkout on their website! This is good until December 31, 2013.
