A good day to all of you girls! here is my FOTD: Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation…
For an incredibly natural complexion, the hydrating foundation with the refreshing feel of water which smoothes, evens and enhances the complexion, and delivers a spectacular ‘bare skin’ result.
This is going to be quite a convoluted explanation for something that doesn’t particularly need an explanation, but I came across the new Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation when I, in my miserly way, saw Clarins Everlasting Foundation on sale onStrawberryNet and decided to get colour-matched at the counter before I went away and bought it online (I AM GERRY HARVEY’S WORST NIGHTMARE). I asked for a sample and the sales assistant didn’t have one, so she (in her blazer-y wisdom) gave me a sample of Clarins new foundation instead. In a shade that is clearly too dark for me.
… But yet somehow it works. I don’t know why. It’s like, when it’s on my face, I can recognize that it’s slightly darker than my skin, but it just… looks nice. I think the warmth in the colour makes me look less corpse-like. I think this foundation’s pretty rad, generally: it’s lightweight, medium coverage, and lasts fairly well (but not as long as I’d like it too) without being drying (I think this’d be a great foundation for someone with normal-dry skin).
Here’s my face (a little washed out by the camera, so it looks like my PERFECT MATCH):
Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation in 107 Beige
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Porcelain
MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC15
MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Brunette
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
MAC Eyeshadow in Brulee
Covergirl LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara in Black
Bloom Lipstick in Nude
P.S. I did end up buying Clarins Everlasting Foundation in the next shade lighter, 105 Nude. And now I can’t help but feel it’s just a tiny bit too light. Why is my life so difficult.
