Arguably the most important thing about your foundation is the shade. It’s not an easy task to find the right shade on your own, especially if you’re faced with a limited shade range. So when I found out that one of our best-selling foundations was ranging forty shades, I was super excited.

What Does Everyone Love About This Foundation?
★★★★★ My everyday foundation - Tamara
"I absolutely love this foundation, it’s so beautiful on the skin and you can build up coverage. I usually apply it with a damp beauty blender and work it into my skin, even though it’s full coverage it’s so beautiful on the skin. It’s perfect for young and old skin. I either set it with a damp beauty blender into powder and use some setting spray, or just apply my Skindinavia setting spray over the top and it will last all day without looking cakey or separating!"
★★★★★ Perfect for cooler months - Krista
"This is my holy grail foundation for cooler months or night events. Perfect amount of coverage for me. Doesn't cake or look like a mask. A little goes a really long way. I've been using this foundation for 2 years and have only just finished my second bottle. Doesn't make me breakout and works with/without primer or setting powder. I will always use a setting spray though and I get a full day of wear without creasing and it wearing away."
★★★★★ Love this foundation - Binda
"This foundation is long-wearing and I have found it to be perfect for my oily skin. It lasts me all day when worn with a good primer, setting powder and fixing spray with no need to powder throughout the day. It gives a great finish and is easy to blend. I think it is great value as you only need a small amount of product. I find it very hard to find a foundation that keeps my skin from being oily throughout the day, will definitely repurchase."
