[unpaid/sample] If you still can’t quite adapt back to full foundation, this US based cover is something of a find. Veil Sunset Foundation is an oil free, light pigment base that feels and acts like a blur product but at such a lightweight level, you’ll forget it’s there.
I was convinced that both the shades I called in (3P and 3N) would be too orange but in fact, they’re not, and I could wear either although my natural inclination is towards 3P. I will say ahead that it’s really hard to find in the UK but there is free global shipping direct from the US site.
The texture is melty and light and gives more in the way of blur than colour so it’s absolutely ideal for a natural skin look that is perfecting and has a – hate to use such a hackneyed term but – ‘me but better’ finish. You could, if you’re completely happy with your tone just opt for the primer (above). I’m not much of a primer fan but could see a tangible difference on the side of my face with the primer and the one without. It’s mattifying but not dryly so and the skin finish is a light veil of diffusion with a definite soft focus finish.
In the swatch, it’s 3P below and 3N above. P signifies a pink undertone and N is a neutral undertone. There’s a G category as well for ‘gold’ undertone with 15 shades to choose from. If you don’t see a shade that you are sure of, I think mixing the primer with your usual base would have a similar effect…in fact, the brand calls it a mixing base. I tried it on a half and half with Complexion Rescue and although it took longer than usual to dry, the blur effect was happily and subtly there, so it feels like a bit of a ‘store cupboard’ complexion enhancer for when you think you need to up a level. The bases are $47.95 and the primer is $44.95 HERE.

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