Clarins True Radiance Foundation - £27.00*- Clarins 

I've been using this Clarins foundation alot recently, I have kindly been sent a few pieces from the A/W14 collection to try including this True Radiance Foundation which was launched a few weeks ago!

I don't tend to use the same foundation every single day so i've been using this in between the latest YSL Fusion Ink Foundation ( read my review here YSL FUSION INK)

First of all the packaging - I love love love Clarins packaging, its so fancy! The iconic red box, the gold detailing. You can see where your money goes with Clarins. I love that the foundation has a pump which makes it easy to use. I pop a few pumps onto my hand and apply with a buffing brush.

I find I only need about 3 or 4 pumps depending on how i'm building up my coverage. As I said I use my buffing brush to apply and base and then apply more to my problem areas, (chin, cheeks and nose) for more coverage. Its easy to build up. I do find the formula is quite wet so I leave it to soak in before applying blusher or powder, I usually apply my eye make up now and go back to the rest of my base.

Once it's soaked in,  this doesn't take long maybe 5 minutes I apply my blusher, bronzer and powder. I find a setting powder works well to create a more matte finish. The foundation leaves the skin looking radiant and fresh. The foundation leaves the skin feeling full of hydration, this lasts all day. Even when i'm taking my make up off before bed my skin is still full of hydration and radiance.

For a more dewy, radiant finish I don't apply a setting powder all over just to my problem areas to stop it looking shiny.

I think you get a decent size bottle for £27.00 and a very good quality product. The coverage is light but build-able and easy to apply and it lasts all day leaving the skin full of moisture. With spf 15 its perfect for everyday wear!

Hmmm, I am very stuck between this and the YSL Fusion, which would you say you prefer?
