Things that I love: When products do extra bits without me even asking them. Enter Lancome’s Skin Feels Good – a skincare makeup hybrid. And not only does it have skincare in the makeup itself, that skincare promises to benefit the skin the more you use it. Fans of a lightweight, light to medium coverage foundation and those who love a natural glow are going to want to check this out!
Containing vegetable glycerine which replumps the skin, hyaluronic acid to help keep the skin’s moisture levels high and moringa, an antioxidant which helps protect the skin, topped off with SPF23, Lancome say that after just five days of continuous use, you’ll achieve a radiant healthy glow with skin 50% more moisturised. In the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t tried it out for five days straight thanks to the long weekend and a couple of makeup free days, but I’ll keep you updated! The lightweight texture blends into my skin in seconds and even when I applied it to the back of my hand after first being sent it, I could tell it was going to look amazing on my skin. It had that glow without feeling wet or sticky. The finish is beautiful. If you’re a fan of foundations that looks like skin, you’re going to love this. It gives me a light to medium coverage and I can build it to a fuller coverage on my more troublesome bits, but for the purpose of the photos below, they all show what one layer looks like, buffed into the skin with a buffing brush. They haven’t been set with powder or have any other product on top of them. I was sent two shades, so thought I’d show them both to you, sure why not?
Cool Porcelaine is one of the lightest of the eight shades available and while I haven’t tried out all the other shades, it’s a really close match to my super pale neck.
With both of these shades, I find that they sit like a second skin on me and don’t gather in my fine lines and wrinkles. You can see the natural radiance they give and as I’ve been embracing my skin over the past few years and am loving looking like I’m not wearing makeup, this foundation was made for me!
Shade 02C Natural Blonde is slightly darker than Cool Porcelaine and despite it not being a match for my neck, I think it looks better on me, giving me a bit of warmth. So once I blend it down the neck and into the hairline, it looks fabulous!
Because I’ve the aul oily t-zone, I do like to set that part of my face no matter what foundation I’m using and my powder sits beautifully on top of it. But if you’ve dryer skin, I think your skin will love it too. Maybe even more so! The Lancome Skin Feels Good Foundation comes in eight shades, will set you back €34 and will be available from this month. I’m getting good juju from this foundation lads and unless something drastic happens, I’ll be purchasing this again when I run out which will be soon! It’s truly gorgeous!
