Yana Foundation Review

The lovely people at Yana Cosmetics London sent me a couple samples of their foundation to try out. They do make-up for all skin tones which is great because there are a few brands out there (not naming any) that do really nice products but only cater to a niche.


They've got a really handy system for you to select which foundation shade is right for you. All you need to do is pick from their selection which celebrity skin tone is similar to yours. This is a great (and quite accurate) system, particularly when buying from them online for the first time. I'm sort of in between 9 and 10 which is Oprah Winfrey and Missy Elliot. The difference is subtle. I tested both:




Verdict: Now, I'll be totally honest. I'm new to this brand of make-up, but I'm impressed. I like the foundation a lot. It feels light on my skin, unlike a lot of other foundations out there and it's really easy to blend in evenly. It's not messy or really staining either and dries quickly. My face is naturally oily but I was relieved that the foundation didn't make it worse. It gave me a lovely, even glow rather than a shine, which is exactly what you want. It's also suitable for sensitive skin, which is another bonus. Although 9 didn't look bad on me at all, 10 is my shade. It's an exact match- I guess that's one thing me and Missy have in common then. The foundation is a little pricier than the one I currently use (Mary Kay Medium Coverage) but the professional finish really is worth it.

Yana Foundation gets 9 pearls out of 10 (I never give 10 but this is very close) from me.

Where can I buy it?: Online at Yana Cosmetics London, specifically here.
Price:  £20.50 each (Foundation sample testers are £1 each)
