Perricone MD Foundation Serum

If you’re looking for a lightweight Summer foundation that has great skincare benefits and good sun protection then check out Perricone MD Foundation serum. It’s part of the No Makeup Makeup collection from the brand and combines science based skincare with colour.

This serum foundation comes in a pipette style bottle although there is a screw lid also for better transportation. The travel friendly sized bottle is 30ml however the fluid texture means a little goes a seriously long way.
  This foundation contains neuropeptides, which send messages to the skin cells and assist them in managing various skin issues such as inflammation and healing.
 The coverage is a sheer veil and has a silicone feel to it. The suede finish is beautiful however the formula does need to be worked into the skin well with a firmer brush. A loose fibred foundation brush will result in brushstroke marks in your foundation.
 I found it took a little while to settle into the skin so those with an oily skin may not find the texture comfortable to wear, the silicone feel would also be off putting to those with an oily skin.
 If your skin is on the dryer side, textured or more mature then it works well to blend in, blur pigmentation or uneven skin tone and didn’t cling to textured areas.
 A good SPF of 30 gives extra protection to the skin this summer without feeling heavy.

The colour pigments adapt really well and seem to blend into your own skin tone and the finish is suede-like, hydrating and illuminating. There are 8 shade options which all seem fairly warm toned and annoyingly wouldn’t really cater for a very deep skin tone.

Overall a great textured foundation for those who want a natural veil but with the bonus of good skincare benefits and sun protection. Lasts well, looks natural, applies easily and easy to transport in your makeup bag.

 You can pick up Perricone MD Foundation Serum here for £45.00

Benefit Brow Contour Pro

My favourite pens in the 90’s were always the ones with 4 colours in one. Clicking each colour down aggressively to get the next colour was always a great thing to do to annoy your math’s teacher.
 Benefit has launched their 4 in one brow contour product, which is genius to create a multi dimensional brow look.
The trend for a contoured solid brow doesn’t seem to be slowing up so rather than use multiple product in varying shades, you can switch between the different tones within the one product.
It holds a lighter and darker shade an edge definer shade and a highlighter pencil.
 The texture is blendable to create a soft brow but the formula is hard to give great longevity.

There are 5 shade options to choose from and I would say the best way to select which pen is best for you is to match the lightest shade within the pen to your natural hair colour.
Blonde/Light Pen
 The shade range is great, catering from very fair through to black hair and the pigments tend to have an ashy finish, which is great to create a natural brow look.

The Brow contour pro is £29.00 and available now here.
