Clean and matte? Let’s see how this Lawless foundation performs.

If you’re into clean beauty, I’m sure you’ve realized there aren’t many matte foundations in that world – and, the ones that are matte, are powder formulas. Most of the time clean foundations have luminous, radiant finishes that perfectly capture the ‘clean girl makeup’ trend. Conseal The Deal from Lawless might just be the only matte foundation that’s formulated with clean ingredients (at least for now). Luckily, it’s one worth looking into. Let’s dive into Lawless Conseal The Deal Foundation Review.

Promises vs. Performance: How will this self setting foundation wear?

Lawless foundation ‘Conseal The Deal’ boasts long wearing, self-setting claims. The formula is serum-like, promising a weightless and hydrating wear. It features a natural matte finish, and is said to be good for all skin types, even sensitive with its clean formula. Conseal The Deal won’t just provide coverage, either. It features ingredients like nasturtium flower extract to limit the appearance of free radical damage caused by blue light, goji berry which has. anti-aging benefits, and bisabolo + ginger extracts to soothe dry, sensitive skin.

My Review Thoughts: Lawless Conseal The Deal Foundation

Starting the review with the shade range, the colors of Lawless Foundation are different online to in person. They are much lighter than they look online, so definitely pick up an extra to try out. It also isn’t very inclusive. Hopefully Lawless will improve on this in the future!

The application of the Lawless foundation is pretty easy. Using a damp sponge or brush, it blends evenly and gives a near immediate full coverage. However, it does dry down fast. It’s best to work in sections at a time rather than dotting foundation all over your face and then blending. But, this fast dry down time is because of the self-setting properties. Once dry, it transforms to a beautiful soft matte finish. I will say, it can cling to some dry patches, but it doesn’t accentuate them too badly, nor does it exaggerate fine lines, pores, or texture.

Overall, I’m happy with how this foundation wears. I do think it wears best paired with a primer (I like the RMS Re-Evolve Primer) and setting powder (HAUS LABS Bio Blurring is a great option). It wears for a solid 8-10 hours before it begins settling and creasing. As promised, the foundation ensures skin is nourished without feeling or looking oily.

Let’s Review How It Compares: Lawless Foundation is best matte foundation in clean beauty.

For all my oily skinned friends who can’t jump on the clean foundation trend because they’re just too glowy, I recommend the Lawless foundation, Conseal The Deal. It’s a long wear, full coverage foundation with a fluid texture. It boasts a weightless feel, natural matte finish that doesn’t look dry, and self-setting properties too. This formula wears a solid 8+ hours without breaking apart, settling, or looking/feeling oily. Finally, a matte foundation in the clean beauty world!

My holy grail full coverage, long wear foundation remains Estee Lauder Double Wear. If you’ve researched makeup any bit, I’m sure you’ve come across it is. I, and many others, dub it the industry standard for its performance. No matter what primer, what complexion enhancers, and what setters I pair with it, it withstands the test of time. As a whole, the coverage, finish, and longevity are unmatched.

Comparison to Top Performers

To really compare Lawless Conseal The Deal and Estee Lauder Double wear, we’ve got to start with the texture of the formulas because they are very different. Lawless is a thinner, serum like texture while Estee Lauder is much thicker and not as fluid. They both give instant medium coverage that can be built up to full coverage if desired. Double Wear performs time and time again, with 24 hour, budge-proof wear claims. And, it delivers. I can always count on this foundation makeup to withstand anything life throws at me, looking near flawless for at least 12 hours. Plus, it’s suited for all skin types!

Another great option is LYS Triple Fix (also a clean formula!), especially if you’re looking for something a bit more glowy. It provides solid buildable medium coverage, applies effortlessly, and wears beautifully for 6-8 hours. While it doesn’t have the longest wear time out there, it doesn’t break apart or look patchy. I only get a bit of creasing and accentuated texture around my smile lines. Even when I don’t powder or touch up my face throughout the day, I don’t get super oily – just a really nice glow. At $22, LYS Triple Fix is a great option for a serum foundation. Click here for a full review of LYS Triple Fix. >

Is there a Lawless Foundation Dupe?

The review would not be complete with Lawless Foundation Dupe. We do not think there is a great dupe for Lawless Conseal The Deal Foundation. However, there is a good drugstore alternative that is full coverage, with matte finish, and somewhat clean. We are talking about Neutrogena Flawless Matte CC Cream. Don’t let the name full you, it is way more than a cc cream, it is a full matte, coverage foundation at its core. Plus, it has the skincare benefits that you might be looking for, e.g. niacinamide. If you are on a budget, this foundation pick might work for you.
