SS16 Foundations: Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier
Besides the lipsticks, the other makeup product almost every brand is bringing out for SS16 is foundation. And while cushions and foundations with the dropper (BECCA, Stila, Kiko Armani, Rouge Bunny Rouge etc) are having a real moment this season, “classic” foundations are still going strong.
And here are three that caught my attention with the official description:
Chanel LES BEIGESHealthy Glow Foundation (£36 from Selfridges)
“An invisible foundation that creates a natural healthy glow by giving skin the radiance of a day spent outdoors, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The perfection of a natural glow. With a range of subtle, easy-to-wear beiges, CHANEL’s Healthy Glow Foundation frees women from their fears of using foundation and gives every skin tone a lasting healthy glow. The soft and comfortable texture glides over the skin and melts away. The texture becomes imperceptible and allows the skin to breathe freely, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The complexion is evened-out and enhanced with a sheer finish.”
“Everlasting 16-hour perfection from morning to night. A luminous matte finish, flawless correction and exceptional comfort, in all conditions. Day after day, the skin’s texture is refined by the new formula enriched with the Poreless Effect skincare essence. * Self-assessment after applying the fluid foundation.”
Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation ( $48 from Sephora)
“A mosaic of nature’s most luminous natural ingredients gives skin a candlelit glow at any time of day or night. A calibrated blend of radiant pearl mica, embedded in an ultra-lightweight formula, mimics the reflective glow of just lit candles. This mica mélange mingles with refreshing purified water to give skin a burst of hydration and help foundation glide onto skin for lasting smoothness and natural luminosity. A luxurious blend of lightweight oils locks in this moisture to leave skin balanced, soft and beautifully ignited.”
That Laura Mercier foundations sounds like a dream!
