I am loving the current wave of new-generation foundations. Using the snazziest technologies and most innovative formulas we can now expect to look better for longer, with easier application and often with added skincare benefits, to boot. They come at all price points: Clarins Everlasting Foundation (€29) provides lightweight, medium-to-full coverage for up to 15 hours; Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra 24H is out on February 1st priced at €35, and next month Avon introduce Ideal Flawless Foundation at €15.50.
And last week saw the launch of Perfection Lumière from Chanel. At €44 it's at the pricier end of the spectrum but for that, we're promised a longwearing, comfortable, semi-matte finish that delivers a luminous, flawless complexion -- for all skin types. Those are some pretty big claims.
Here's the thing though: it really delivers. Perfection Lumière is a lovely product that is fast becoming one of my all-time favourite foundations. It replaces the discontined Pro Lumière but is a very different type of animal indeed. I liked Pro -- I wore it on my wedding day -- but its dewy finish only lasted a few hours before sliding off my face. This stuff, though -- this stuff I absolutely adore.
What are your foundation favourites?
