Glow with it

This luxurious, new foundation is designed to give you unparalleled radiance

While most people see foundation as makeup, what if it were almost like an invisible mask of radiance of your skin? Clé de Peau Beauté is already renowned for its base makeup — its Concealer is award winning, while its new Radiance Stick Foundation is super convenient to apply. For its newest launch, the brand returned to a lightweight foundation that bestows skin with the ultimate radiance. The phrase, "feels like a cream, looks like a dream" comes to mind when we applied this on our skin. It has a beautiful oil-to-gel texture that glides on and disappears into skin, leaving a halo of luminosity on your complexion, so the result is not flat and mask-like but glow-y and radiant. You'll end up with light-as-air coverage that doesn't look or feel too powdery.

We had to try it to see it for ourselves and the comments we received were, well, glowing. Most people commented on how our skin looked radiant even after several hours of wear, without have a thick and cake-y effect. This foundation wins big in photos as well, it looks almost like a soft focus filter on your skin. We did apply some translucent loose powder on top, and if you have an oily complexion, you may want to set it with powder to keep from looking shiny. We blended it with our fingers, but a foundation brush or beauty blender will do an even better job of creating true seamless coverage. One tip? Always blend the foundation down to your neck as well, to avoid any obvious lines.

The Foundation comes in 12 shades (eight are available here) and with an adequate SPF20/PA++ coverage, plus it's infused with skincare ingredients. Each jar contains the brand's Illuminating Veil Infusion — a blend of rare extracts, skincare oils and blurring technology, that improves hydration and firms the skin. This holistic approach is what makes your complexion look that much better on every front, even before you put on any other makeup to enhance your face. For a foundation this high-tech and luxurious, do expect to pay more premium, skincare-type prices, but when you see the natural glow on your face, you'll understand the investment.
