JUST LIKE WITH TIGHTS, FOUNDATION FANS’ LOYALTIES ARE OFTEN DIVIDED BETWEEN SHEER AND FULL COVERAGE. THESE NEW LAUNCHES OFFER PLENTY OF OPTIONS FOR BOTH.
For the queen of high coverage Shiseido Future Solution LX Total Radiance Foundation ($98) combines high-performing skincare with a long-lasting finish due to a nonfading technology. Skin is left doll-like. For details, see Shopping Guide.
For the concealer and primer obsessed Sisley Phyto-Teint Expert Foundation ($150) blends soft-focus powders with cucumber and ginkgo biloba to soften and moisturize skin. The laydown is blurred, radiant and moisturizing.
For the effortless anti-tryhard Mèreadesso Tinted All-in-One Moisturizer ($48) is topped up with vitamin E, aloe vera and witch hazel. This buildable blend claims to replace night, day and eye creams and primer.
For the eco- minded no-make-up- makeup girl Ilia Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($33) is filled with white tea and rosemary to fight free radicals. The semi-matte finish lends a “Did you just get a facial?” kind of radiance. ■
