Review: DeVita Absolute softBlend Creme to Powder Foundation

Liquid and powder foundations are quite common, but did you know that there are also cream foundations? They are occasionally seen in professional and department store lines, but it is rare to find one that's vegan. DeVita, however, makes a vegan creme to powder foundation in nine different shades.

  • Vegan formula
  • Available in several shades
  • Blends well
  • Dries quickly but not immediately
  • Natural matte finish
  • Gentle formula
  • Fairly expensive
I love the luxury feel of this compact; it is reminiscent of many department store cosmetic lines. While I don't use a lot of cream foundations in my work, this is one of the only vegan versions I've seen, and I consider it high enough quality to use on photo shoots and film sets. As a makeup artist, sometimes you want a foundation that provides a medium to heavier coverage, and this fits the bill. The foundation goes on creamy, and doesn't dry immediately. While it is drying, you can mix other creamy products, such as concealers or blushes, before it is set. The foundation didn't appear to dry completely on its own , so I'd still recommend sealing with a finishing powder. The price is a little steep, but due to the quality presentation and gentle ingredients (it comes in around a 1 on the EWG Skin Deep database), it is justified. If you're looking for a foundation with better coverage than a powder or a tinted moisturizer, I recommend checking out this creamy foundation.

  1. I've just purchased this but am wondering how to use the two colors included in the compact. SHould one be put on first or should they be blended together?

  2. Hi Anne-Marie,

    There is actually only one shade in this foundation. The left side is the foundation and the right side is a sponge. Hope you enjoy it!
