Bcoz for the very first time I applied Mr. Time Plus Pro, I was like: What the Hell?? Did the SA screw up the shade again? Why does it look so white??
After 5 minutes or so: I murmured…It seems to be better now…But why still so white…I could so pass for a B Grade Ghost
And after a good amount of Fifteen Minutes: I took a look back in the mirror and thought to myself – So much better now, That Whiteness seems to have disappeared & I guess I am liking that Semi Matte Finish!
Bcoz Gurl….That is the amount of time it takes to seep in & make you look your normal self….15 minutes – That much time!
And then when you look all pretty to get clicked & photographed & when the Flash Fires, there’s the B grade Ghost in your Pictures again. …And then you’re left confused like the ending of Ring – As to what really happened – I swear I have watched that movie like so many time & I still have so many questions…But lets Keep those doubts aside & get into the indepth analysis of the Product in question….Shall we Gurl
Colorbar Time Plus Pro Foundation Review
The Product Claims the Formula is:
- Long Lasting
- Oil Free
- SPF -15
- Enriched with Vitamin E
- Non comedogenic
Packaging: Colorbar Time Plus Pro Foundation comes in a Beige Squeezy tube that is fitted with a Silver Screwcap. The Packaging is nothing fancy but The Squeeze Tube is very convenient & it easily delivers the required amount of product for application. The only downfall of the packaging is that the tube leaks when left freely in your handbag and that can create quite a messy situation in your traveling bag.
Finish: After the foundation settles in, It delivers a Semi Matte Finish to the skin. It does not turn oily even after long continuous hours of wear. We are talking 7 hours on an average. The foundation does helps to control the Oily T-zones. But the Problem can be with the Whitish Cast it creates which could be due to SPF 15. The Whitish Cast seeps in allmost after 15 mins to give a Natural Semi-Matte Finish to the skin. But It is definitely NOT photo friendly because the added SPF fires back under the influence of Flash Photography making me look all very ghostly in the pics.
Coverage & Staying Power: Colorbar’s Time Pus Pro delivers Medium Coverage. For anyone with a light to medium coverage needs, this will work well but If you’re someone looking for help with deep acne marks/blemishes, then this one is definitely for you. The foundation has an amazing Staying Span of 8 + hours.
Bonus Additions: It comes with 2 bonuses -Vitamin E which is great for reduction of skin damage & SPF 15 to prevent from sun’s harmful rays.
The Sweet Aspects
Gives a Matte Finish
- Looks Natural 15 to 20 minutes after settling in
- Controls Oil in the T-zones
- Has a SPF of 15
- Vitamin E
Easy to Blend
- Offers Medium Coverage
Staying Power of 8 + Hours
The Not so Sweet Aspects
Takes Time to Set & Seep in (Approximately 15 Minutes)
Comes only in 3 shades
Squeezy Tube leaks – Not travel friendly
The Snapshot: Colorbars Time Plus Pro is a decent budget buy, It kind of serves the purpose but it definitely does not climb up the ladder to my Holygrail needs. It will be best suited for someone who is looking something for a daily wear foundation that is not too heavy on coverage but has an all day Staying Power. It offers a Semi Matte Finish & can suit all skin types – especially from normal to combination-oily. The downfalls really are that it takes 15 to 20 minutes to settle in & is definitely not photograph friendly.
