Claudia Louch Mousse Foundation in C3


Health scientist Claudia Louch has whipped out another premium formulation in her fleet of skin bases. This time, it's a mousse foundation that has come out right in time for the sweaty Summer months to hit us. I have the shade C3, which is a lovely warm-toned, golden yellow. Think NC30. Seeing how uncountable high-end brands still do not cater for caucasian skin tones, it's great to see a Harley Street based skin specialist acknowledging diversity. Thank YOU, ma'am! If you are someone who likes matte foundations that feel light and 'breathable' on the skin - then this is made for you. It reminds me of Clinique's Stay Matte Foundation that I used to be obsessed with a few years ago. That was my BFF when it came to changing climate, and I have a feeling Claudia Louch Mousse Foundation is going to replace it quite efficiently. 

Leaving a smooth, velvety finish - it leaves skin looking naturally polished and lightly evened out. I would instantly slot it into the light coverage category. I personally don't use foundations to cover up every blemish on the face and I would suggest you do the same. Fall back on tried and tested, foolproof concealers and let foundation be the base to keep the rest of your make-up in place. As for longevity, I would say it lasts about 6 hours until you would need a touch-up. With all of it's hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic properties, thankfully, it's easy to slap on daily without worrying about waking up with teenager-like skin. Basically, it should rank high on your wish-list for base products this Summer.
