Shit, shit and shitteth.

I have used this foundation for 10 years because it's the only one that suits my skintone.

Talk to me about pale foundations with pink tones with good coverage?

Ok I am the palest of pale with pink tones too so felt your pain when Dior discontinued my fav, am still searching tbh.

However, YSL do a great (quite dewy finish) one pale enough for me, lasts well and blends beautifully......

Otherwise, Lancôme and MAC do cover us pale ladies pretty well too.

And I use a cheaper one from bourjois that comes with a brush applicator when I'm in a rush , but this does not have the staying power of others...

Hope this helps?

This is all such a faff. I've become complacent about just slapping doublewear on for a decade.

I'll look into YSL, I have a friend who works for Dior and one at illamasqua so going to trial everything and start from scratch again.

I don't touch mac as find their service pretty appalling.

So so miffed. Why Estee Lauder?! Whyyyy!?

I hate to admit it. but I thought 'Doublewear shell' meant the awful nylon shellsuits that were available from the local market. common

They've replaced it with 'bone' but it's a different tone and makesme look ill.

Lol @ shellsuit. That would truly be a travesty.

Could you maybe give their outlet a call. I think they call it the cosmetics company and they are at York and bicester village i think. They sell lots of e l brands so maybe they will have it in. Worth a try

It's at the mcarthur glen outlet in York

Not wanting to raise too many hopes but I think DW shell is coming back around May / June time but EL haven't been more specific.

Fingers crossed for you Shell-ers!
