FOTD: Sunday Riley & By Terry

I mostly just wanted to do something with the new By Terry Lipstick (although I’m not sure that it was the right color choice), and take the Sunday Riley Foundation for a spin…

This is one of those ‘where have you been all my life’ daily foundations, that lets you wear makeup without you actually looking like you’re wearing any. My oily/acne prone skin fell head over heels in love from the first application. One of the things that makes this foundation special is the ingredients. It’s chock full of skin-saving goodness, including Vitamin C, Bamboo, and Magnolia Bark. The combination is supposed to soothe inflamed skin, help correct blemishes, and plump fine lines and wrinkes. Oh, and offer ‘skin perfecting’ coverage that’s light (sheer) and breathable. All that in a foundation? Sign me up!

One more plus for this product, is that the color range accounts for undertones. There is a C range (cooler/neutral) and a W range (warmer). 140C is a match for me, believe it or not, despite its incredible light color in the bottle.

See how the foundation looked a little light going on… then merged in and adjusted to go nearly invisible? I am really impressed.
Now, this is a sheer to medium coverage. If you’re looking for full coverage (or even a solid medium coverage) then this foundation is not for you. I’m a fan of the fact that it leaves your skin in better shape than it was when you put it on. And if I’m worried about any extra coverage, I can always grab a color corrector to hit the hot spots.
What’s really got me jazzed about this foundation is that it falls firmly in the ‘makeup as skin care’ category, and REALLY gives By Terry a run for its money… particularly because this foundation is $52 (as opposed to the comparable By Terry version at $112). Yeah.
