Recently I had the opportunity to try out Addiction NV A Little Bit Of… Foundation in Pat. Addiction NV Cosmetics is a mineral makeup company from Huntington Beach that launched in 2006.
The Website Claims:
Do you go through foundation like you go through boys?
Addiction NV’s a little bit of… breaks that pattern and blends the best qualities of foundation, concealer, and powder into one perfect package that goes on easily and self-adjusts to your own skin tone. Whether you need full coverage or just a quick touch up, a little goes a long way with a little bit of… Its super light-weight, wet-dry, mineral-based formula easily hides, smoothes, and softens while it brings a wealth of health and radiance back to your skin.
Each shade is named after some of our favorite boys. Why? Because these boys have the same special traits:
Natural born leaders
Make us look and feel younger
Continuously pamper and protect us
The 6 shades available are:
Pat – very fair / light with natural undertones
Michael – fair / ivory with yellow undertones
Jesse – fair / ivory with pink undertones

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! It says it has the best qualities of foundation, concealer and powder in one, along with self-adjusting properties. I can’t speak to the self-adjusting properties , but Pat is an excellent color match on me. It is really good coverage without feeling heavy or cakey.
I apply A Little Bit Of foundation with either my Urban Decay Optical Blurring brush or my Beau-make flat top synthetic kabuki brush.. I dot it on my t-zone and under the eyes, then blend in circles. The result is great looking skin. I feel like this foundation gives me enough coverage that I don’t need concealer.
Because A Little Bit Of… only comes in 6 shades, I do feel the shade range is a bit limited. That said, it does claim to be color adjusting. As I’ve only tried the shade Pat, I can’t really comment on the color adjusting, though I do feel like Pat matches me nicely.
Wearing Pat with Soufflé bronzer to contour
After 8 hours of wear, it could use a bit of a touch up, but it doesn’t look awful.
