I told you all of my foundation-quest related trials, and promised to bring you the news on a couple of recently launched products I'd found that I felt really did the trick. One was Lancome's new Photogenic Luminessence, and the other I really like is Make Up For Ever HD Foundation.
Anyone with an interest in gadgets or technology will have heard about High Definition (HD) TV. Put simply, HD gives us a picture that's 6 times clearer than yer average TV pic, and that means things like blemishes, wrinkles and spots will all also be six times clearer. Yikes, I'd hate to be Anne Doyle when RTE get off their arses and launch a HD service - but in reality, she's probably safe, as no doubt it will be 2045 by the time they arrange it.
What this means for us, as consumers, is that new cosmetic technologies created for use on HD broadcasts are trickling down to over-the-counter products. One such product is this new HD Foundation from pro brand, Make Up For Ever. It's an oil-free formulation that gives a lovely soft-focus finish which diffuses the light, thus minimising imperfections.
I got on great with it - good range of shades, a smooth, moisturising finish and longevity all garner it a big thumbs up from me, and it's a staple in my daytime foundation arsenal now. Ideally, say MUFE, you should be finishing it with their special HD powder, to be buffed on with their special Kabuki brush. I've tried that, and I've also tried it with my fave Laura Mercier finishing powder, and gotten great results either way.
So, I'd say it's up to you how you set it, but the last word from me is, at €33, this is a great value foundation that gives excellent results.
