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.
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.
