I’m always interested when my favourite brands release new products. Today I was having a snoop around looking for new foundation releases. Here are four that I’m excited about.
1. YSL Radiance Flawless Foundation SPF20
This foundation is designed for dull skin that is in need of a lift. It has a satin, fine texture. It contains light diffusing particles and illuminating pigments that bounce light off the skin. It’s said to soften the appearance of lines and add a glow to the skin. The SPF is also a bonus for environmental protection but not so great for photography. It was released last week and costs €42 / £28 / $48.
2. Clinique Redness Solution Makeup SPF15
Clinique has a whole Redness Solution range but are finally adding a foundation to the collection. It is designed to cover flushed skin and counteract the redness caused by flare-ups and Rosacea. It contains Mushroom Extract which has a calming effect on the skin. It also contains yellow tones which help reduce the appearance of the redness. Contains SPF15 which is great for day to day wear but makes it unsuitable for photography. It’s on sale in October and will cost €28 / £20 / $24.50
3. MAC Pro Longwear Foundation
This one claims to have a long-wearing foundation that gives up to 15 hours of wear in any environmental condition. It’s lightweight and creamy, applies smoothly to provide sheer to medium coverage. This foundation is supposed to last in hot and humid conditions, control oil to keep skin fresh, natural and flawless. We’ll see. Out now in UK for £22. At the time this post was published this foundation was not available on MAC’s US website.
4. Mac Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation
This foundation is designed for those of us who want cake free coverage but a a blemish free appearance. The texture is lightweight and whipped and contains Jojoba oil. Like most foundations it’s main job in to even out the skintone. This one is out in October and will cost £12.99 (it will costs around €20).
The YSL foundation appeals to me most. I’m also quite interested to see if the Clinique foundation will actually work on clients with Rosacea.
