Bridging the radiance gap
There was something missing in my foundation stocks and that was a radient base offering. Being an combination and blemish prone skin girl I wanted a good coverage which didn't highlight any areas that I was desperately trying to conceal. However down to a militant skincare routine those days are long gone and my skin is no longer dotted with various blemishes and scar ridden so my base needs have changed and I can finally switch to a lighter base so what do we have?
After over a year of having a love affair with the RT buffing brush I felt like trying something new and after two of my favourite beauty junkies Alix and Chelsea continued to rave about the RT expert face brush I decided to pick it up. It's a a lot more dense than the buffing brush and at first I was a little unsure but after a few more goes with it I can confirm its the new number one it creates a beautiful base effortlessly. I am still using my beloved buffing brush for concealer though as I prefer the finish that it gives me. Now here are the two new bases to join the ranks and we have the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat and Bourjois Healthy Mix. Both of these offer a light radient base whilst still offering more coverage than something like a BB cream or a tinted moisturiser. Something I have noticed about both of these products is the smell of them and normally scents in products dont really sway me to liking them more but they both have an incredible scent. I don't feel like I have been using them long enough to give a proper review but right now I am swaying more towards the YSL as they finish on the skin is just perfection but if I perhaps wasn't having a great skin day I may go more for the Bourjois as it offers more coverage.
I also decided to pick up the matching concealer to the Bourjois foundation as I remember Meg saying good things about it. Now dont get me wrong I dont think I will ever be without the Collection lasting perfection concealer but as I dont need so much coverage anymore I was finding it a little cakey and drying which is never a good look is it. So I am now mixing the two together and it gives me a much nicer finish. Let me know if you have tried these products and what you thought was it an instant love affair?
