So im on the hunt for a foundation to replace my Bb moisture rich (see my review ) that i can apply quickly, has medium coverage and is natural ie not at all matt but is dewy with a sheer application. I have found good foundations dont get me wrong like Bourjois healthy mix but i always fall between 2 colours 56 & 58, like with Mac im nc42/44 and they only do nc43 in one type or honey/ warm natural in BB. I am so picky that the colour has to be dead on. I thought there are so many new foundatins out there their must be something that fits the bill. Now i have a baby i dont have the luxury of sitting a mixing 2 colours I just want to slap the stuff on. I actually went to try the new ultra 24 hr but the SA said that was a full coverage and for those that get a shine on their tzone. She said this one was medium dewy coverage - great! She swatched about 4 colours before procedding to show me 2 on my jawline - one was too dark ie orange and the other one was too pink onfirming what I have tought all along French companies just do not cater for my skin tone. I found te same when I a SA tried to match me for Loreals True Match and that foundation is suppose to change slightly to your own skintone - i dont think so. The SA was at least nice enough not to push the Lancome one on me. I have some samples of the new Chanel one but I have tried it on my jaw just to see the texture and finish rather than colour and it seems a full coverage and b dries to a powdery velvet finish which i dont like. I will try anyway the sample and see how i get on.
