Want to use less product and still get a flawless complexion? Who doesn’t? There are lots of different types of skin-perfecting products on the market from CC creams to cushion compacts but foundation drops are one product that everyone is talking about. They are extremely lightweight but packed with pigment so you only need a drop to cover you entire face, which is why almost all of them have pipet applicators. Foundation drops blur imperfects and don’t give you that dreaded cake face look. Can you see why they are getting a lot of buzz?
