With a tag line of ‘See no makeup, Feel no makeup’ this product has a lot to live up to. Actually, it’s to perfect the skin without looking like you are obviously wearing foundation, and it does – sort of – live up to that claim. The consistency is very fluid.. it’s more runny than the foundations I am used to..but that does mean you can build it without making it obvious. Invisible Fluid Makeup has shed-loads of technology, from tone enhancing pigments to adaptive and responsive colour correcting with multi-reflective prisms for the ultimate in skin perfection.
I’ve tried it this morning; one side of my face I used my regular foundation, the other side I used Invisible Fluid Makeup – and there is a difference. Invisible Fluid is subtle and to be honest, I like a warmer foundation look, but while it didn’t correct pigmentation marks particularly, it did give an overall invisible veil that is very flattering.
It feels as light as air on the skin and I felt it made my skin look and feel softer: it isn’t quite the magic carpet ride of perfection, but for those who have great skin to start with and love a natural look that’s you, but somewhat better, it’s a winner. It’s launching at John Lewis this month, for £27.
Meanwhile, Estee Lauder’s looks for Derek Lam Fall 2012 at New York Fashion Week is just beautiful: those smoky eyes with a pink/beige lip on Liu Wen is one of the most lovely looks I’ve seen for a while.
