I think you would know by now I am a sucker for a good base. I love nothing more than the look of hydrated, bright and radiant skin. When I saw the latest from L’Oréal, the Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundation I knew I had to try it. I mean just that name alone gives me all the feels!
L’Oréal claims that this foundation is infused with light reflecting pearls that absorb quickly into skin for a natural, radiant glow. Glam Beige Foundation is a lightweight formula infused with light reflecting pearls for a natural and radiant glow. Developed with colour adjusting pigments, choose your desired depth of color as the shade self-adjusts to match your undertone.
The product is encased in a plastic squeeze tube and has a strong floral skincare style scent, which I love. It also contains an SPF15 I find that I get a light coverage that I can be built up to medium if needed. I needed to use quite a bit of product for it to last all day on my skin and to actually get the glow it claims. Using a light hand, made the foundation look very matte and powdery. I wouldn’t say this has more of a soft matte finish. I think those with a combination skin type would love it and get more of that glow without looking oily.
The self-adjusting formula was pretty spot on, which impressed me as I have had issues in the past with these kinds of foundations looking very orange. The best way for me to apply it was with a brush as a Beauty Blender did suck up a lot of product. There are 3 shades in total which is a little disappointing as I don’t feel like the darkest shades would cover those with a deep skin tone. I used the shade Light on my Mac NW20-25 skin tone. I think this is a great everyday foundation that I will be wearing a lot over the coming months. For this review, I wore the foundation for a total of 7.5 hours. I used the Natasha Denona Face Glow Primer Hydrating Underbase, didn’t set with a powder and also didn’t use a setting spray as I really wanted to test out its longevity. I had quite a busy day with the kids so I was very happy with the lasting power. As you can see in the below photos, I still have a decent coverage on my face it’s only really worn off around my mouth, chin, and nose area. The Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundation is available from Priceline for $24.95
