I picked up both of these products from Selfridges a while ago. I must say that I am thoroughly pleased with both of them even though they were VERY expensive.
I look quite light in this picture but trust me, I don't look like that in real life. I'm guessing it's probably down to the cameras flash reflecting off the glow I have. :) (Please excuse my messy, unruly eyebrows)
I picked up the Sheer Glow foundation in Stromboli which can be compared to MAC Nc35-40, but this has a lot more yellow in it. The consistency of this foundation is quite runny so it's easy to blend, I usually apply with my GOSH stipler brush. It just literally melts into the skin. The coverage is excellent! It covers all my acne scars. This foundation is formulated for dry or normal skin types but I think it's suitable for most skin types as I'm combination. I love the finish to this, my skin looks luminous and gives a natural finish. It lasts pretty much all day! The only downsides to it is by lunch time I need to blot my skin with mattifying papers as my skin starts looking oily which is okay compared to MAC's studiofix (Made me look oily-er :P) & this stuff isn't exactly cheap. I would repurchase this though as this is now my HG foundation!
As you can see from the picture above, I've used a few shades from the Pleasures of Paris palette. LOVE! I've used Nepal all over the lid, Abyssnia on the inner corners and Cordura on the crease and outer corners.
I have my eye on the NARS Belle De Jour and Striptease. Have any of you used it and what did you think of it?
