If you’re obsessed with millenials, as many fashion brands are, then you might as well be very clear who your cosmetics are aimed at! If you can forgive the absolute favouritism for one particular section of society, then you’ll find a pretty good base that personally I think is suitable for all ages – in fact, favours older skin. My sample isn’t my colour at all but I applied it nonetheless (to the astonishment of the window cleaner, Tom, who internally wrestled with pointing it out but thankfully didn’t) and could see straight away that the coverage and light sheen are lovely. It’s well pigmented without falling into full coverage, it went on evenly (and there’s nothing like a base 5 shades too dark to showcase even coverage) and felt feathery light on my skin.
It’s – obviously from the packaging – a tinted moisturiser but I’d say that it veers to more coverage than you’d expect from that term and it does feel nice and hydrating in the wear. There’s a bit of blur to it so the effect is smoothing and it’s claiming an 8 hour hydration and some ‘infill’ for fine skin creases. There are 10 shades going from the lightest in Porcelain to the deepest in Sable. My sample shade is Tan (medium/dark) so you’ll see why I couldn’t put it to the 8 hour test.
The swatch doesn’t tell you much to be honest, unless you feel sure it’s the right shade for you – I’m requesting something that’s a better match so I can show it properly and also wear it out and about to see how it performs. I love that it has SPF30 PA+++ and yet feels and looks so light. At £38 it’s definitely a luxury purchase – let’s hope those millenials aren’t too obligated by mortgages!
You’ll be able to find it from April onwards.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
