Another unending quest of mine is looking for the perfect foundation. I love wearing it, especially at night, regardless if my skin looks good or bad. It just gives skin that perfect, clean canvas and/or glow. My newest find is Lancome’s Color Ideal Skin Perfecting Makeup. I actually was not looking for new foundation, but was stopped by one of those incessent make-up consultants and just wanted to appease her.
The foundation claims to perfect your skin by reconditioning its texture and has these true color pigments that adapt to perfectly match your skintone–erasing flaws and imperfections. Well, to be honest, the consultant did not do a skin color test, but just gave me a color that she thought would be good and she was right on. The makeup went on very smoothly and matched my skin tone really well. It stayed on all day, but more importantly, left me with a glowy look that made my makeup that much prettier. Not a shimmer glow, but more of a healthy, radiant, not quite yet time to blot my skin glow. Its an oil-free formula and has an SPF 15 to boot. I walked out of the store with a sample but now have to go back and buy a full bottle.
