Charlotte tilbury light wonder foundation

Coming into summer I m looking for a foundation with a little more coverage than a tinted moisturiser but less than full on moisturiser. I have been using nars but finding it a little drying on skin. Am considering this CT Wonder glow.
Anyone here used it and care to recommend or feedback?
Some reports suggest it s not very buildable in terms of coverage, I m wondering if the coverage is too minimal - I need some coverage!!

If its CT wonderglow you are after I would say it's definitely NOT buildable, its very sheer, I use it under make up for a dewy, highlighted look but I would never use on its own (although you could if you have great skin).

CT does the magic foundation which I have and think is ok but will not be re purchasing.

I will suggest nars luminous foundation-- you use very little, buildable and perfect for the summer because you don't use a lot of product so not so heavy on the face.

Nars has a velvet matte face tint its meant to be like a tinted moisturiser with more coverage. I have only swatched this and not used.

Mac has released the NTNs (next to nothing foundation) I am yet to try this but from what I have seen it is very sheer aswell.

Yeah, wonderglow is more of a primer than a foundation.

I also use the light wonder foundation. It's nice, not too heavy and easy to blend.

Hanks for the info. It s not wonderglow, it s light wonder here it s 'a diaphanous veil of youth enhancing tint ' apparently wink

I have nars sheer glow but find i need a change. My skin overall isn't bad but I do need some coverage , sometimes better than others so buildable that stays for the day would be good.

Might try the other nars luminescence suggestion ...

Quick bump for the evening crowd - wondering if anyone has any experience of it or could recommend an alternative thanks

It does not suit me. I tried two shades (the first two) and both oxidized horribly on me.

The new Armani power fabric might be what you're after, even though it sounds like a washing powder.

I have used it and didnt like it. Didnt findbit buildable and never lasted despite using primer etc.

By the time i was half way through my work day, it was gone.

I tried and didn't like it. Also used the nars sheet one and disliked it. I didn't know Armani had a new one out. I find their foundations great.

*sheer not sheet.

I love the light wonder foundation, also recommend Urban Decay naked skin which is light to medium coverage and the bareMinerals complexion rescue. They're the only two liquid/gel foundations I have now and they're brilliant. If I want a bit more coverage I just add the bareMinerals mineral powder on top of either of them.

Also if you do for the CT foundation buy it online from the CT website. They'll send sachets if the shade you picked and the next shade up, that way you can try the foundation first and make sure you have the right shade/are happy. If not you can return it as long as it's in the original packing and unused.

FeelUnique also do a sample deal, you choose 5 samples of various things and just pay postage. I've done that to try out various foundations/shades and skincare.

I love it and wear it all the time.

I use light wonder for 'lighter make up' days. I do like it and it'll be ideal for summer. I tend to go for lancome tent idole ultra for more coverage. So yes, for summer it should be fine.
