Tinted moisturiser/ low coverage foundation advice
Can anyone recommend me a tinted moisturiser or low coverage foundation? I've always used Laura Mercier oil-free but since sorting my skin out and getting older it's tending to cake in my wrinkles and look powdery.
I don't want full coverage, having sorted the skin I want to show it off, but something more on the dewy/radiant side than matte. A bit scared of this having combination skin though!
I use perricone MD cosmeceuticals no foundation foundation. It's nice and light to wear and leaves my skin looking dewy. The only downside is the smell. It's not unpleasant, but it does have a scent to it, which I can smell when I'm wearing it!
Chantecauille is would be my favourite - but it is really pricy! Have started using nars version recently, and impressed! Stopped using LM for same reason - though am using LM foundation as have run out of nars foundation (for times when I want full coverage)
I've been having the same issue, skin is nicer now and laura mercier oil-free feels too thick and heavy! I've tried loads of others and find the best one to be Nars tinted moisturiser followed by Bourjois CC cream.
Another vote for chantacallie here. If you're interested in the perricone i would suggest buying via qvc. Get 30 day money back gaurantee. I've found that very useful when trying new expensive skincare. I have sent items back when they didn't deliver and much rather lose £5 postage than have something that was £30+ sat unused in a draw.
OP I used to use Chantecaille Just Skin but had to stop when my skin changed. I'm now using the Boots Botanics cheap-as-chips BB cream and I really like it would suggest you try this one anyway, esp if it's still on half price. However, back to the Chantecaille, what skintone are you? I have a little-used tube of the Chantecaille that I'd be very happy to send you to try out if you like?
BT Sheer expert is indeed lovely as mentioned. I have a really nice textured non-cakey strivectin BB but a tad too dark unless I am tanned. If OP doesn't want to take you up on the trial offer myrtle t I will as desp to try the chantecaille. also tried the maybelline bb/cc. It's factor 30 and gives a natural finish & cheap as chips! Good luck.
