25 Nov Avon Luxe Silken Foundation
The last post I did on Avon’s new make-up offering had lots of interest, so I was keen to test out their new ‘Luxe’ foundation to see how it performed.
Here’s what it says on the packaging: ‘Luxurious, silk-infused foundation perfects skin for a seamless soft-focus effect.’
I’ve got my hands on the Porcelain shade (the lightest out of the five on offer) and first impressions are good – the packaging looks premium and the shade itself seems pretty neutral, not too warm or cool toned. Plus there’s an SPF of 20.
A tip: pump some out on the back of your hand first before applying with your fingers as it’s easy to dispense too much in one go.
The colour match is spot on and coverage very good – I would say medium. However it did pick up some dryness on my nose and at the top of my cheekbones – my delicate skin is starting to suffer now in the cold weather and is quite dehydrated, so no real suprise there!
The finish is fairly matte and it feels weightless on the skin so this would be a good choice for evenings or when you’re going for a fully made up look.
Overall I liked this foundation but it’s not quite hydrating enough for me at this time of year. Will try again next spring!
