4 Editors Put the Lys Beauty Foundation to the Test, and It Won Their Unanimous Approval
Unlike lip products or even eyeshadow, foundations can be a hit or a miss for people. Because everyone has different skin types, undertones, sensitivities, and preferences on finishes and coverage, it's rare to find a foundation that pleases a large group of people equally — but we found a formula that did just that.
LYS Beauty is a new brand that just hit the market at Sephora as the retailer's first Black-owned clean cosmetics brand. It launched with six products — a blush, bronzer, setting powder, primer, lip oil, and foundation — all vegan, cruelty-free, and under $30. With diversity and inclusivity at top of mind for the brand's founder Tisha Thompson, the Triple Fix Serum Foundation ($22) comes in 34 shades, ranging from the lightest porcelain to the deepest espresso.
The liquid foundation formula offers light to medium buildable coverage with a natural finish. It boasts ingredients like hyaluronic acid for moisture and turmeric to brighten skin so not does it offer instantaneous cosmetics benefits but it has long-term skin-care benefits too. It may only be a week old, but it's so good it already won for the "best foundation" category the February POPSUGAR Beauty Awards.
