It is easy to create a beautiful base with the latest low-cost, high-performing bottles
Foundations that are affordable and excellent are rare. Then a lot of them arrive all at once, just like bills. No sooner had I emptied a bottle of the outstanding L’Oreal Paris True Match Tinted Serum (PS13.99). I’m sure at least 12 people have stopped me on the street to tell me it’s your favorite column-inspired purchase. It is a surprise joy!
It is moist, soft, and comfortable on all skin types (even those with dry skin). The brand calls Fresh Nude “medium coverage”, which I find both exaggerated and misleading.
It is easy to apply and leaves a beautiful eggshell finish that lasts well past bedtime. The entire thing is vegan and recyclable. The bottle is made of glass, and the pump has been replaced by a wooden spatula that is great for scraping off every bit. The only problem is that there aren’t 40 shades. I was unable to find Light 3 Neutral, so I settled for Light 3 Warm. It is just a little too golden. However, Fresh Nude is worth the relatively low price if you find your perfect match.
You can even get it cheaper with a Kind & Free The first base I have loved from Rimmel London in many years (PS9.49). Although it is half the cost of the Body Shop version, if your skin is dry, you might prefer the latter. This is an excellent deal for everyone. It glides on smoothly and evenly, leaving behind a healthy, light veil of color that is appropriate for the seasons.
Although it has a casual look, it provides enough coverage to blend skin tones and blur imperfections. Although the shade selection is less here, Rimmel has managed to cover most people’s needs.
Kind & Free does not test on animals. According to what I hear on the unofficial grapevine the brand is working towards complete cruelty-free accreditation. I hope so, and I will keep you updated.
