Clarins/True Radiance Foundation

I've always been true to my foundation, I've used Estee Lauder Double Wear for years, never found anything that comes close to it. 

I've been reviewing the True Radiance Foundation* lately and I think it's perfect for this time of year. I may be wrong but I'm sure this is a re release of the 2009 version, which at the time was limited edition. The formula is creamy and light making application really easy, it gives a flawless finish using a foundation brush.

I would say this is light-medium coverage, one layer is fine for day to day wear and 2 layers would be perfect for a night out. As the name suggests this gives you 'True Radiance' thanks to Clarins 'Radiance Booster Complex' it boosts skins natural luminosity using specially shaped pigments in the formula which optimise the light and gives a real healthy, dewy glow.

This foundation is perfect for drier skins as it's packed with hydrating ingredients like Moringa Seed, Tara Gum, and SPF 15 for daily protection.

It's designed to give you a natural looking complexion without feeling heavy or cakey on the skin, I personally cant wear this every day, after wearing it for a week straight it broke me out so bad which is a real shame, I will be taking it on holiday though as my holiday always clears up with a bit of sun and salt water so I feel for evening wear with a sweep of bronzer it'll look great.

The colour range isn't huge on this and if your really pale skinned you might find it hard to get a match, pop into your local Clarins counter to be colour matched and to try it out.

True Radiance hits counters nationwide in September and will retail at £27 for 30ml, you can buy it on line at Clarins.com now if you cant wait!
