I am loving two foundations at the moment and they are at very opposite ends of the price spectrum. The By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Wrinkle Control Serum Foundation (£76 from uk.spacenk.com) is perfect for my dry winter skin to give me a glowing and even complexion, and the SEVENTEEN On The Spot Foundation (£6.99 from www.boots.com) covers breakouts perfectly and offers me full coverage on bad skin days.
There is no hiding from the fact that the By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Wrinkle Control Serum Foundation is very expensive. £76 is quite ridiculous for a foundation and normally I would tell you not to spend that amount of money...but, this is a seriously good foundation. In fact, it's one of the best I've ever tried. I may have found the holy grail! I think that this is definitely one for dry or ageing skin- it is a foundation and wrinkle control serum in one and has quite an oily texture. It is dispensed via a pump and you need to give the bottle a good shake before you use it to make sure that everything is mixed. The foundation will give you flawless, even coverage and the serum provides long lasting anti-ageing benefits by firming the skin and smoothing lines. The packaging describes it as providing a matte finish, but I'd say it is more of a dewy finish that makes your skin look beautifully hydrated and natural. There is a huge range of shades to suit all skin tones, and Vanilla Beige is perfect for my cool-toned extremely pale skin. I am praying for my wallet when this bottle runs out.
The SEVENTEEN On The Spot Foundation really offers full coverage and it's great for hiding spots and blemishes. It's not the most hydrating foundation, so I do like to pat an oil underneath to stop it looking cakey. I have the lightest shade Porcelain, but this is still a little too dark for me. I've sorted this out though by adding a drop of The Body Shop's Lightening Shade Adjusting Drops (£10 from www.thebodyshop.co.uk) before application. This foundation helps to clear my breakouts up too as it contains blemish-fighting salicylic acid. It's all I'm reaching for at the moment when the spots appear.
Have you tried either of these foundations?
