Ok, I know I’ve been going on and on about Clarins’ Autumn 2014 collection, but it’s seriously my complete favorite! I’m obsessed with the idea of ‘ladylike’ makeup, and it’s just filled with the most perfect neutral shades. It really is a collection to check out for an updated everyday look!
Even though I’ve not looked at a foundation since June, I know that as we get into autumn and winter I’m going to be looking for a new base, and Clarins’ True Radiance foundation will be it! It’s a rerelease of an old Clarins favorite, and although I’m not sure how long it’s been since it was available, I know a huge number of people will have a sigh of release to see that it’s back on the shelves.
The foundation has a lovely light, liquid texture, which completely melts into the skin. It has a subtle, almost parma-violets like scent which disappears into the skin, and it also has the all-important SPF 15. I apply it using my beauty blender sponge (see here) and it gives the illusion of perfect velvety skin. Even used without a primer, it wears for close to 12 hours on me, and it keeps my skin feeling hydrated the whole time. I don’t get shiny with it, and it doesn’t oxidize into a different colour either! The range will comprise of 10 shades, so most will be able to find their HG foundation!
The foundation will be launched this month, and costs £27
Thanks a lot for the review! I’ve been looking for a new foundation for summer, and I’ve just ordered this one thanks to you!
