The New Base

I was lucky enough to get a Space NK voucher for Christmas (thanks, Mum) and I’ve actually been spending it wisely. Recently I’ve been on the hunt for a new foundation. I’m using my Smashbox Water BB Cream in the daytime but it’s not enough for evening. I went into my local Space NK looking for a new foundation and concealer and here is what I came out with…..

So, like I said I wanted a more full coverage foundation. WELL, this does the trick. It’s a lovely, silky (as the name suggests) full coverage foundation that somehow looks natural on the skin. I think thats down to the perfect shade for me, I got Porcelain. I much prefer this to Nars Sheer Glow, L’Oreal True Match and MAC Studio Finish as it just looks the most natural YET it covers all of my redness and unevenness. If you’re in the market for a new foundation, this could be the one.  One thing to note, it has the most perfect old fashioned makeup smell which I love, but some of you may not like that.

I’d seen this concealer across the blogs and I have to admit that I had no interest in it. The word matte almost immediately turns me off a product as, in the words of Sali Hughes ‘I like to baste my skin like a turkey.’. When browsing Space NK though the lady recommended this to me so I tried this on one eye and the Laura Mercier Candlelight Highlighting Concealer on the other and I was convinced I would prefer the later. That said, I really like this concealar, Kind of like the foundation, it’s high coverage yet it looks really natural and doesn’t cake up. I love this and I just for reference, I got the shade Vanilla.
