I’m a huge fan of liquid foundation and I never leave the house without foundation on so I have quite the collection as I love trying out new brands and formulas and I’m always looking for that next perfect foundation.
A company called Lin&Lo recently contacted me to ask if I would like to review any of their makeup so of course I would opt for a foundation review. Foundation is the makeup product I get the most questions about, and rightly so, it’s a minefield out there and it’s so hard to find foundations that suit your skin type as we have all made loads of foundation mis-buys.
I have a Lin&Lo lipstick which I love, the formula is so creamy and it’s the perfect pinky nude. One of the things that really stood out for me was their gorgeous packaging for their lipsticks so I was excited to try another product from the brand.
Lin&Lo sell a couple of liquid foundations but as my skin is maturing at a rapid pace now I thought it would be best to go one the one that is recommended for dry and mature skin types. Although my skin isn’t dry all over, it’s more combination it absolutely has signs of aging and let’s face it, a more glowy look is far more youthful.
The Lin&Lo Moisturising Foundation says to apply it with a brush, but as I favour beauty blenders for foundation application I went for that instead. I was so impressed upon application of this foundation of how a little amount goes such a long way with really great coverage! So much so I was straight on the phone to my sister telling her she needed to come and try the foundation as the coverage feels so light yet looks fab! Lin&Lo are bang on the button when they say “it’s light texture allows for excellent spreadability”
I would say this is a good medium coverage foundation which is buildable for a fuller coverage but I think the beauty of this foundation is how light it does feel on the skin, so why make it look too heavy? I favour spot concealing with this foundation to get the flawless base I’m after. It’s formula is enriched with wheat germ oil and vegetable extracts which regulate hydration and contains a form of sun protection and mineral UV-Filters.
This foundation is £29 so it is definately an investment compared to more affordable high street foundations but I do think it has the edge over them. The only thing I would say was that it didn’t last as long as my double wear Foundation but that’s a very hard act to follow. So maybe a slight refresh may be needed if you are planning on wearing this for a long day. But it does last a good 6 hours on me before wearing off in places. I need to try it with a fixing spray to see if it lasts longer.
I have used this foundation so much since receiving it, in fact it’s probably the foundation I have used the most over the past month and half of it has gone already – so that’s a great testament to this foundation. For me it’s a great foundation for those who have fairly good skin and are just looking to subtly even out skin tone and have a natural light weight finish that can be buildable.
It’s a great summer foundation and although I chose the shade ‘nude’, I wish I hadn’t played so safe and actually chosen a slightly darker colour as it soon won’t match my skin tone when I start to tan up for summer. They do however have a great colour range to choose from and it doesn’t oxidise on the skin at all so its true to colour.
All in all I’ve so enjoyed using and testing out this foundation and I would recommend this as a fantastic mineral makeup foundation that’s amazing for ageing skin for an even natural finish and great base for your makeup.
