Reviews please!

Thinking of purchasing this.

I'm a fan!

Lightweight, medium coverage, gives a glowy healthy look without cake. It's a runny consistency and I find best applied with fingers. Not sure if it would cope with major blemishes.

I'm a lightish yellow tone, around NC20 in MAC and No.4 is the perfect match.

CoolToned Wed 17-Feb-16 23:16:30

Thanks MsBojangles! I'm NC20 too, and was initially considering No. 3. Good to know No.4 is the perfect match for NC20.

MsBojangles Wed 17-Feb-16 23:27:46

Gah, don't take my word for it <panics>!!!

I think No.3 was a bit pinker toned and I'm more on the sallow golden side grin

Ruth wears No 4, it's actually pretty light.

Someone posted about this tonight on Mrs Gloss. I'm just about to check if anyone has replied on there.

I'm Asian, but not sure if I'm more yellow than more neutral. I am cool-toned though, based on veins and makeup that suits me. However, I have rosacea so no pink tones. smile

This might help if you can read it, tis a bit small:

Based on that chart, I'm indeed a 4. But I read in MakeUpAlley that it oxidises two shades darker?

MsBojangles Thu 18-Feb-16 11:33:05

I read that too but I can't say it's very been a problem for me, probably because my neck is darker than my face.

CT are pretty good at giving samples, ask to try a 3&4 before you make your mind up.

MsBojangles - Unfortunately, I am in Australia and would have to order mine online. I might still go with 4 though, as my rosacea will probably be highlighted if I go with a rosy tone.

How many hours does it last on you?

MsBojangles Thu 18-Feb-16 11:57:21

I put it on in the morning and it's still there in the afternoon, I touch up with a bit of powder after lunch. My skin is on the dry side so can't comment on how it would perform if you're oilier though.

Australia, lucky you envy

CoolToned Thu 18-Feb-16 20:05:26

MsBojangles - I don't feel so lucky whenever we have 39C days! Thankfully, that's few and far behind here in Melbourne. smile

MsBojangles Thu 18-Feb-16 20:44:56

Kind of hard to have any sympathy for you when I'm curled on the sofa, wrapped in a blanket and a dog with the heating cranked up to inferno! shock

CoolToned Thu 18-Feb-16 20:53:59

Sorry, that should have been few and far between. Definitely need my coffee!

Have you tried the Light Wonder during summer?

I'd gladly swap - I'm a fungus!

MsBojangles Thu 18-Feb-16 21:09:08

I'm wrinkle phobic so for those three days of summer I forgo all foundations and switch to a layer of tinted SPF50 instead.

Think I must have fungus tendencies too grin

Are you an expat?

CoolToned Thu 18-Feb-16 23:48:27

Fellow wrinkle-phobic here! I use SPF50 under foundation even in the middle of winter. :D

I'm just a bum with too much time to youtube makeup videos! (That's how I found out about Charlotte Tilbury's light wonder - I'm a sucker for glowy sheer foundation, eventhough most days I don't wear any!)

How light is the fair 2 one?
I am very very fair with slight yellow undertone. I like the no 4 but think if it oxidises it would be too dark.

CoolToned Mon 29-Feb-16 01:16:38

Buttercup443 - ended up ordering the fair 2. I'll let you know when it arrives!

CoolToned Wed 02-Mar-16 02:15:29

It's here. It's the correct shade, but the undertone leans neutral, which is a bummer.

CoolToned Tue 05-Apr-16 20:54:03

It oxidises on me by 2-3 shades darker. sad

It's amazing. Everything from CT is TBH. depressing as it's £££
