Time for some illuminating radiance




 


OUTER BEAUTY
Autumn means time to get back to foundation. I am a firm believer that this is one of the makeup products that makes the most difference. Even for those with almost perfect skin. The trick is to choose the right foundation for ones skin and need. I´m always on the lookout for new product launches. The foundations seem to get better for every year and it´s an area that is highly prioritized by all major brands within the cosmetics industry. Recently a much anticipated foundation was launched. The Le Teint Touche Eclat from YSL. As you can tell by the name, this is a foundation spin-off from the worlds most famous concealer Touche Eclat. According to Tatler Magzine this is the one "people have gone on waiting list for, it´s also the one that seems so obvious we can´t believe they didn´t do it YEARS ago. And it´s great. Illuminating and light, faking that 10-hours-of-sleep radiance that´s practically impossible to achieve in real life." Tatler also gives out a special gold star to Estée Lauder's Invisible Fluid Makeup and Giorgio Armani's Maestro. With this article in hand and raving words, while still on holiday in Spain at the time, I headed to departement store El Corte Ingles, and tried the three of them out. On spot, the first one that seriously got my own gold star, was the Estée Lauder, since it just seemed to melt in, and gave that perfect coverage and illuminating shine. I will try the YSL Le Teint again though, since I think it deserves a second chance to impress. And I am pretty sure it will...

  9. Har du provat armanis? Den är fantastisk. Har även haft Dior som jag gillar. Ska prova estee lauder. Bra foundation är viktigt. Funderar annars att gå till cow för jag tycker att de är superproffsiga och vet vad de pratar om. Kanske blir en laura mercier istället. Ha en fin helg.
