I didn't think it would ever happen but it has, my favourite foundation YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat now has a new rival in the form of Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation & Concealer. If you prefer a dewy finish when it come's to foundation or have dry/mature skin and struggle to find bases that don't look cakey or accentuate fine lines and wrinkles, you're going to love this.
Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation & Concealer 'Beige'* is a handy product to have as not only does it contain both concealer and foundation but inside the flip-up lid is a good quality mirror making touch ups quick and easy. The foundation is the star of the show for me. It's lightweight, easy to blend and covers redness yet still allows freckles to show through but can be built up in areas where you might want more coverage. The finish is seamless with no demarcation lines whatsoever, it's definitely not a foundation that needs a lot of prep to look good (unless you have oily skin then you might need to use a good mattifying primer) I apply DSIRF&C with either my Real Techniques Buffing Brush or Sephora Classic Mineral Powder Brush which works brilliantly with liquid but you can use your fingers if you're having a good skin day and don't need much coverage. As I already mentioned, the finish is dewy and feels moisturising which is why it may not be the best for anyone with overly oily skin but I think most skin types would get on well with this foundation. I usually need to powder my t-zone halfway through the day to take down some shine but everything stays in place and is still on my face by the end of the day.
The concealer is creamy and I don't find it clings to or highlights any dry areas. It covers blemishes and dark circles well but unfortunately it creases under my eyes after a few hours but I have the same problem with most concealers.
DSIRF&C is one of the best foundations I've tried in a long time and one which would be great to use throughout winter when skin tends to look dull and flat.It's now within my top 5 and fighting for 1st place.
