Claudia Louch Hi-Def Foundation - Your Personal Soft Focus Filter





Claudia Louch Hi-Def Foundation is designed to make you look picture perfect, not just in your soft focus iPhone selfies, but also in hi-def Canon DSLRs. It's light-weight formula almost penetrates my skin, leaving a velvety smooth finish on the surface. It's like having a soft focus filter on your face, ready for when the harsh sunshine hits your skin come summer. 

It's quite dense when you pump it out. Work it using a beauty blender to get an even finish. It moves easily and provides a fuller coverage, minus the cakey look or feel. The final result is similar to an airbrush foundation with every minor fleck concealed. I even got complimented a few times whenever I wore it. Oh, and it comes with fringe benefits like 94% natural, hypoallergic, paraben free and fragrance-free (so no gluey smell. Yay!). But like all good things, this magical foundation comes with a price tag of £52.50 for 20ml. 

What I love about Claudia Louch is how its coverage stays intact over time. I have it in shade Warm Yellow which is a tad bit tan for my cool yellow skin tone. I was quite worried about it oxidising by the end of the day. Gladly, this rich foundation did not move, streak or oxidise. So no need for frantic blotting or blaming the bad lighting. I wore Naked Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Light Neutral to brighten the undereye, nose and cheekbones, which also stayed put on this gorgeous non-drying base. Plus, it does not block pores as I haven't had any break-outs so far. I remember switching to MAC Face & Body simply because MAC studio fix, Chanel and lots of other heavy duty bases wrecked havoc on my skin. I personally recommend trying samples of heavy foundations, just to see how your skin reacts before buying full-size. I am totally crushing on this Claudia Louch invention and explicitly budgeting to buy it in Light Natural. After all, a girl needs more than one foundation to get through six seasons of muggy British weather!
