I'm in the market for a new foundation fairly soon and am considering going a bit more upmarket. I usually use Rimmel which is fine but after a bit of Lisa Eldridge-related research, I'm interested in these:

My main skin 'issues' are fine dehydration lines around eyes, dark circles under eyes and a bit of redness around nose and on chin. I'm looking for medium coverage, definitely nothing mask-like or cakey, dewy finish and a fairly high SPF. Budget up to £40 for the right product
I've not tried those ones, but I have the same problem with dehydration that you do and love Chanel Les Beiges. Good coverage (I also get a little redness), nice and glowy, lasts all day and wears really well.
I haven't tried the Nars Sheer Glow, but would like to. Armani Luminous Silk foundation is really nice with a great colour range. No SPF, but I think realistically you need to layer a separate SPF in any case. Nars Radiant tinted moisturiser (SPF 30) is lovely, quite light coverage. I find using a primer helps with avoiding that settling into fine lines.
I found Nars sheer glow excellent. I really didn't like Chanel vitalumiere Aqua but it didn't help that I couldn't get a get a good colour match. I would definitely recommend sheer glow though, good coverage, didn't cake or sit in lines etc.
Lott, To redeem your advantage card points, I think you have to have enough to pay for the entire item. I don't think you can part pay for an item using points. That's how it always was in Boots, but it may have changed recently.
I have dehydrated skin and use Too Faced Born This Way. I thought it might be a bit young for mid 30s me but it's absolutely lovely. I have freckles and it gives lovely dewey coverage, very buildable and natural
