I have been having a bit of a lean mean no money month this month so was de-light-ed to be given some Loreal....... from my friend whose boyfriend brought her the wrong colour (woohoo!!). I tried it this morning and will show you lots of photos* with and without flash and tell you my thoughts on it.
(*All the photos are unedited and unretouched so you can get a true idea of the cream and what it provides.)
I was impressed at the way the swatch disappeared into my skin, and it smells really nice so my first impressions about it were good.
I applied it to my clean face on top of DHC velvet skin coat primer, which I LOVE and you can buy here by clicking the picture
It went on really well with my fingers evening out my skin tone. I applied concealer to my blemishes and dark circles before sealing it in with pressed powder. I have taken photos with and with out flash to give you an idea of the base cover it provides. I have to say I was disappointed to note that as the day went on it oxidised to a horrendous orange colour which prompted me to try it under my usual foundation as a primer with the same terrible results. I would not buy this and fail to see where they conjured the extortionate price from for what amounts to little more than a tinted moisturiser.
|Just Base with flash, forgive the face it is early!!!!|
|Full face in daylight, no flash before the Oompa Loompa incident!|
So would you try it?
Thanks for reading
