Clarins True Radiance SPF 15 Perfect Skin Foundation

Formulated with moringa seed, tara gum and organic marsh samphire plant extract, the new Clarins True Radiance foundation gives a luminous and flawless complexion while it hydrates and protects the skin against pollution.

I own the shade 105 Nude. As you can see, it's lighter than Clarins Skin Perfecting BB Cream in 00 Fair. If you are familiar with MAC foundations, 105 Nude is similar to NC15 and it has neutral, slightly peach undertones.

This foundation is suited to all skin types, but because it's quite moisturizing and has a dewy finish, it works best for dry, normal and combination skin. If your skin is very oily, you might not like this. But if you still want that beautiful luminous finish, you'll want to use a good mattifying primer and set it with some powder on the T-zone. You will still have that beautiful radiant finish, but you won't look like a greaseball!

Here's the shade 105 Nude on me without any primer or powder :

Imperfections and redness are minimized, it even out my skin tone and looks very natural. I couldn't take a good photo to show you the dewy finish though.Oh well!

Like I said, my skin is very oily so a dewy finish isn't usually my first choice. However, I love wearing a luminous foundation when my skin looks blotchy and dull, especially during the colder months. While this isn't my favorite foundation to wear during a hot and humid summer day, I know it will become a staple in my makeup bag this winter!

The coverage is light to medium and the consistency is quite runny. Compared to Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, the consistency is much more runny and the finish is more dewy. It's more moisturizing too, without feeling too heavy on the skin.

I'm obsessed with this foundation, it has such a beautiful finish!

The Clarins True Radiance SPF 15 Perfect Skin Foundation retail for $42 CDN for 30ml.
