Best new foundations

As the weather gets colder, we’ve found our tried and tested tinted moisturisers and BB creams just aren’t quite enough any more.  Luckily we’ve found three new-ish foundations that we love. It was Sali Hughes who first brought Guerlain’s Parure Gold Fluid Radiance Foundation SPF30 (£55) to our attention earlier this year (read her review here) when she gave it a whopping 10 out of 10 rating.  It isn’t the cheapest of foundations but it covers the skin beautifully and really does stay there for a whole day.  If you’d prefer a foundation with less staying power, then do try their new Lingerie de Peau Foundation, so called because they claim it clings to your skin like lingerie! It uses correcting pigments to get a flawless finish and at £38.50, it’s slightly cheaper.  Crème de La Mer launched their first foundation a few weeks ago, La Mer The Treatment Fluid Foundation.  At £70, it is very expensive but we found the silky, fluid texture and glow-effect rather pleasing.  If you’re a fan of their moisturising cream, you’ll definitely like this foundation which combines skincare benefits with coverage.
