Are You On The Lookout For A New Long-wear Foundation?

LONG-WEAR is our foundation of choice, worn by 60 per cent of us. Yet many of us are still looking for our PERFECT FIT. Try these NEW ARRIVALS as recommended by Beauty Editor SARAH HALLIWELL … 


Isabel Marant SS17

For every skin tone:

The many fans of Lancome Teint Idole will scramble for the updated Ultra Wear 24H Wear & Comfort Retouch Free SPF15, serious mouthful that it is. There’s no danger of this shifting, whatever you subject your skin to, and the colour range has been expanded to an impressive 40 shades. For full coverage, look no further. €39.50.

For mature perfection:

Our tester (aged 65+) is devoted to Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk – one of the most flattering and wearable bases for mature skin – and was sceptical whether this new long-wear, Power Fabric SPF25, could compete. But it turns out to be light yet lasting, with the finest oil/pigment balance. It fuses with skin and protects it from UVA and UVB rays. In 15 shades, €49.

For lasting soft-focus:

Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Fluid is a long-wear, mattifying foundation with a new light-diffusing complex: fancy new powders diffuse and reflect light for a soft-focus finish. It also resists both oil and water to stay put. Skin looks nakedly radiant. It’s especially good at boosting oily skin without clogging it. In 16 shades, €50.
