Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation

Disclaimer: PR Sample - I have not been paid for this feature. I'm slightly horrified that it's coming up to three weeks without a blog post from me, but my Little Man has been through a series of horrifying infections (literally one after the other) so it's been a trying time and I'm very excited to be blogging again today, especially since it's to share with you my thoughts on the new Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation - this is a post[...]

Foundation Files: Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42

*PR Samples/Aff. Links*  I was so excited to see the arrival of Missha to Feel Unique as it's one of those brands that I've always lusted after, plus I'm going through a real K-Beauty phase too, so I need all the K-Beauty joy! I was sent a couple of Missha bits including the Vitamin B12 Double Hydrop Booster, which is one of those products that just slots in everywhere - a great bit of skincare - but today I'm sharing my thoughts on the Missha M[...]

Foundation Files: Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15

[lookbook id="25785" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Gifted/Aff. Links* As promised and further to my post on the new Bobbi Brown Foundation extension shades, here's a full review of the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15, which is one of the two Bobbi Brown Foundations (the other being the Skin Foundation Stick) now available in an impressive 43 shades.  I was matched to the shade Sand which[...]

Foundation Files: Estee Lauder Double Wear Light

Anyone who's ever had problematic skin will have almost certainly, at some point, invested in a tube of the original Estee Lauder Double Wear, a seriously high-coverage and long-lasting foundation that gives a skin-like finish whilst masking even the very worst breakouts.  Recently, Estee Lauder have extended their Double Wear line considerably, with the newest member being Double Wear Light, a foundation that promises all the benefits of the ori[...]

Foundation Files: Beauty Pie Everyday Great Skin Foundation

I've had the Beauty Pie Everyday Great Skin Foundation for a couple of months now so I thought it was time I shared a review.  I've been really impressed with my Beauty Pie purchases and I would definitely check them out, as the quality is really decent.  The Beauty Pie Everyday Great Skin Foundation is pretty much exactly as the name suggests and sits in the middle of the road with regards to both coverage and finish, so it provides medium co[...]

Foundation Files: Omorovicza Complexion Perfector SPF20

The Omorovicza Complexion Perfector SPF20 has been around for a while, but recently the brand decided to repackage it, and I think they may have slightly reformulated it too.  It's still available in three shades - Light, Medium and Dark - but now it comes in a travel-friendly, squeezy tube, rather than the glass bottle of the previous incarnation. The Omorovicza Complexion Perfector SPF20 is a beautiful product that provides a whole hos[...]

Foundation Files: bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

The bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream has been around for a while now - I first featured it in March 2015 here - but I wanted to include it in my Foundation Files series as it's such a lovely product that I'm especially looking forward to making use of when I go away in September.  The bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream is pretty much as it sounds; a beautifully hydrating, yet surprisingly light, t[...]

Foundation Files: Mac Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation

For the most part of 2017, my favourite foundation was the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear, but then in early 2018 my skin started getting more and more dry and I started hunting for something a bit more hydrating.  The hunt took me to the Tom Ford stand, where I found a lovely small tube of foundation, but at £60 a pop it was a bit excessive.  Then I headed over to the Mac counter where I swatched the Mac Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation, I[...]

Foundation Files: Cover FX Power Play Foundation

A few months ago I visited the Cover FX pop-up at Selfridges to find my perfect match in the new Cover FX launch, the Power Play Foundation.  I was given a little introduction to the Cover FX range (a brand I'd heard lots about, but never really had a chance to try) and found my perfect shade match to be P20.  There are an amazing 40 shades available, so I would definitely recommend visiting a stand rather than guessing! The Cover FX Powe[...]

tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation

I'm possibly the only beauty blogger who hasn't tried the cult tarte Shape Tape Concealer, so I tried the tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation with completely fresh eyes.  The tarte Shape Tape Foundation is available in two formulas - matte and hydrating - and a fairly decent 18 shades.  I have the Fair Beige shade which is the second to lightest shade available and is a fairly good match for me, but I would probably go for the lightest shade[...]

Foundation Files: Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation

I'm doing so many foundation features recently that I've decided to create a series which I'm calling Foundation Files. The Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation is a relatively new foundation that promises a wealth of benefits, such as eight hours of hydration and tone-adapting technology which together provide a long-lasting, healthy glow.  Shiseido are one of those brands I find really appealing as they create the perfect bal[...]
