Today let’s chat about the first certified organic product I’ve ever shared on this blog: Antonym Cosmetics Certified Organic Baked Foundation in Medium Beige. FYI: this is my new favorite powder foundation, it’s amazing! Let’s breakdown the cost, packaging, what it is, and more!
This foundation costs $38.00 and is available in 6 shades. You can purchase it on:
This is on the pricier side, but considering the packaging, ingredients, and quality I think that $38.00 is a very fair price.
This baked foundation is beautifully packaged in sustainable bamboo. The inside of the bamboo shell has a mirror for on-the-go touch-ups. It is a bit bulky, but I’ll forgive that since the packaging is sustainable and the foundation itself is domed and requires some extra room.
The bamboo compact is sold in a sleek black box with Antonym printed in white lettering and clear shiny lettering on the front. I like the look of it, but it is a stark contrast to the natural casing inside. I’m curious as to whether this is on purpose or not.
WHAT IT IS
As it says right on the back of its packaging, 99.16% of total ingredients in this certified organic baked foundation are from natural origin. 12.4% of the total ingredients are from organic farming. Being organic, you may have guessed that this baked foundation is also cruelty-free and vegan. Good qualities like being organic, cruelty-free, and vegan tend to go hand-in-hand.
This powder foundation provides medium coverage and can be worn alone or over a liquid foundation as a finishing powder. Either way, you wear it it will give you a long-lasting matte finish.
WHAT I THINK
I love this foundation! I was skeptical about the coverage and application at first, but after using it on a regular basis for several weeks I can confirm that it glides on smoothly and provides medium coverage.
In the above screenshot from my review video, it is the only foundation I’m wearing. In addition to the Antonym Cosmetics Baked Foundation, I’m wearing a tiny bit of concealer, blush, and a highlighter.
AntonymCosmetics.com suggests applying this baked foundation with a Kabuki brush and I agree. I’ve only applied this foundation with a kabuki brush when wearing it alone and looking for a matte, medium coverage.
For maximum coverage, you could use this as a setting powder over liquid foundation. In that situation, I would recommend brushing it on lightly with a powder brush or bronzer brush.
Either way, the biggest thing I’ve noticed about this foundation is how it fights off shine. Having combination skin, if I’m not careful with the products I use I can get a little bit of shine on my cheeks in the afternoon. Since using this foundation, alone or over a liquid foundation, my skin has been completely matte. Not dull, just beautifully, naturally, matte.
I’ve put together a quick review video based on this post so you can learn a little more about this foundation and see it in action. Take a look!
