[productsample/affiliatelink] I’ve done a review of this new foundation over on IGTV so you can really see it in action – the thing that struck me the most about the formula is just how little of it you need to use.
I like this far, far better than I thought I was going to – it’s a dewy finish, buildable from medium to high and really does give a ‘flawless’ look. I’m all for ‘real skin’ but sometimes the glamour of a full base that smooths out and covers up just fits the mood of the moment.
As you can see, I’ve also got the Magic Vanish. I went along to Selfridges to get colour matched for both of them (when you see the swatch, you’ll see that the foundation and the vanish are completely different colours and yet somehow they both work!). I would really recommend that you get colour matched at a counter because I’d never have picked the shade I was matched to – Shade 5 Warm.
You’d need to use – for your whole face – about a quarter of what you can see on the brush which of course means that if you wear it every day it’s very good value because you won’t power through it too fast. It’s a hydrating formula and there is something of the moisturiser feel to it – it’s not a weightless foundation so if you’re transitioning from summer weight to winter weight, be prepared to feel the difference. Personally, I wouldn’t do a baking hot day in this. Switching back to the Vanish – I was matched as Fair (£24) and if you do tune in to IGTV you’ll see how it works. It’s a neutraliser so it did make a difference on my dark circles without sinking into creases or looking dry which is a miracle on its own, especially as I was expecting it to be dry because of the creme pan formula.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
If you’re not anyway near a counter, I’ve been through the colour charts on the CT website – they do a without foundation and with foundation picture and it seems pretty accurate but I think you need to have a good understanding of your tone in the first place. If in doubt, the brand is sending out 6 colour samples on a card for you to check against your own skin (I think it may be with a spend, though). Airbrush Flawless is £34 HERE – I feel that’s reasonable as we’ve suddenly run into a pricey foundation patch with several brands tipping over £50. My IGTV is HERE and non affiliate is HERE.
