Calléndra Intense Cover Foundation Review

Calléndra Intense Cover Foundation Review

Have you heard of Calléndra Intense Cover Foundation? I have to admit I did not know anything about Calléndra Intense Cover Foundation which is quite embarrassing since I am a beauty blogger. My friend Leandra from Leandra-online surprised me and ordered me the Calléndra Intense Cover Foundation and Powder set.

When my parcel arrived I was a little taken back at the size of the foundation. Leandra reassured me that this little pot packed a punch. Here was me hoping that true as I have quite a big surface to cover let’s be honest and I am all about that full coverage foundation.


The brand is woman, for woman, creating products that all woman can relate to. Calléndra mission as much as it is there passion to create affordable make-up for every class lady to achieve that red carpet look. The foundation is:

  • Cruelty-Free
  • Lightweight
  • Intense cover
  • 18HRS
  • Matte Finish
  • Non-Transferrable – intense cover powder and foundation
  • All-natural

They have 10 colours in the range from Very Fair to Chestnut.


The foundation is very hard and it difficult to get some out, I followed Leandra’s suggestion and warmed it up with my hairdryer. I applied a small amount of foundation to the back of my hand and blending the foundation into my skin. A little goes a long way. Amazed at the coverage is an understatement. Struggling with red undertone the foundation covered this undertone completely. The Calléndra Foundation is extremely lightweight and the coverage is flawless. Calléndra leaves my skin looking natural with a matte finish looking and feeling fresh all day.


We would love to share this amazing product with our readers, Leandra and I are giving away 2 Foundation and Powder sets (in the shade of your choice).

    I have never heard of this product until.i come cross this blog and post…what I love about this product is that it’s affordable for the set-YAY!
    The word INTENSE got me interested with regards to coverage but judging by the pic its justified…also non-transferabke is a big plus as well

    I would really love to try Calléndra. I bought and used another high coverage foundation in the past. Uneven skin tone, freckles… Currently don’t use foundation. I am considering switching to Calléndra instead.

    Eerstens sal ek in die 7de hemel wees om so Amazing produk te wen. Met 40 wat nader kruip moet n mens op jou beste lyk. Dis wanneer al die plooie, vlekke en aartjies wys. Met Callendra kan ek elke dag pop mooi lyk en die beste van alles dis bekostigbaar en natuurlik. Ek gaan nou al my duime en tone vas knyp vir die Amazing prys. Toedoels xx
