A good foundation is hard to come by, (If you need help choosing yours then why not check out my tips for picking the perfect one here?) so when you’re matched to something great it’s almost time to get out the trumpets. Increasingly known for their incredible nail range, Dr Lewinns have branched out into makeup with the launch of their first foundation: Skin Perfect Foundation Cream. The fluid foundation claims to visibly smooth wrinkles and fine lines, while hydrating the skin to leave it soft and supple. It contains Rose Stem Cells to help stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process, as well as radiance boosting Tourmaline and Matrixyl Synthe’6 to help enhance collagen production, providing a thick and creamy formula that glides on to skin. A trend is really emerging for makeup with skincare benefits and this really ticks that box – if you have skincare and ageing concerns, why not address them while you apply your makeup? Although I’m not in a position to comment on the efficacy of the formula for skin over a certain age, I can confidently state that this has provided a flawless result in under five minutes.
The formula itself is really quite thick, being delivered from a pump bottle which ensures minimum wastage – simple, but relatively revolutionary when it comes to foundation. When applied to the face with a brush the foundation glides over imperfections to create a uniformed result, but without covering up the skin’s contours that makes us look like humans and not robots. The finish is very matt, almost powder-like, which may not be everybody’s cup of tea but is actually my preference. Traditionally, ladies over a certain age are told to avoid matte or powdery finishes as they tend to sit in fine lines, accentuating the bits we want to hide. However, with the Skin Perfect Foundation Cream Dr Lewinns have managed to create something that does the opposite; if there ever was an airbrush in a bottle then this would be a strong contender. Even better is that the formula lasts all day without excess shine peeping through, working well with other makeup and not even needing a powder to finish. Even though it feels quite thick to the touch, on the skin it’s almost feather light and extremely comfortable to wear all the day through. This is definitely being added to my repertoire of foundations, which is a hard task for any brand!
