My Current Foundation/ Powder Combo from Glo and Ray

Tuesday, March 03, 2015


Glo and Ray have got to be the first makeup brand in quite a while to catch my interest; in all honesty it's been ages since I've been in the market for new makeup. My obsessions have moved on a little over the past year, plus I'm so happy with most of the products that I use I don't have much incentive to go out and buy and try new things. However one exception to that and part of my routine that I'm always changing up is my base/ foundation. I've just never managed to get it quite right, and always repurchase something different every time I run out in the hopes of finding 'the one.' If you read this post you'll know that I was really impressed with new makeup brand Glo and Ray's products, and so it seemed like a good place to continue my hunt for the perfect foundation.

 Glo and Ray Colour Correction Luminous Base Foundation
I don't know about you, but from the name of this I imagined a really light coverage with a dewy finish which is definitely not the kind of base product I'd normally go for. However I was hugely impressed with this, the coverage is actually really good and although it's described as 'luminous' it doesn't translate to being oily or greasy looking in the slightest. While the shade might be a little on the dark side for me (although that's nothing new when it comes to foundation) the colour adapts really nicely and leaves the skin looking beautifully even. I have a pale face with horrible rosy cheeks, and so a product that can even it out while still being lightweight is no easy achievement. In fact I'd go as far as to say this is the best base product I've tried in a really long time. I know people have mixed feelings about BB, CC etc creams (Estee Lauder have now brought out an EE cream....wonder how far they can go with this!) but this is great and the 'CC' colour correction properties are definitely not a gimmick.


Glo and Ray Lumicent Pressed Powder
To set the CC foundation I've been using Glo and Ray's Lumicent pressed powder, a gorgeous finely milled pressed powder that applies to the skin like silk and gives a nice subtle glow without a chunky glitter particle in sight. I think you have to be careful with pressed powders that claim to luminise as they're generally loaded up with sparkle (which lets face it, is not a look any of us have been aiming for since the year seven schol disco) but this is perfect. Applied with a big fluffy brush it sets the foundation really nicely without making the skin look flat or cakey; Glo and Ray describes the finish as 'natural matte' which I think is dead on. These are higher end products which is reflected in the quality as well as the price tag, however if you're a fan of luxury makeup and feel like treating yourself you won't go far wrong with this little combo.

What's your favourite foundation/ powder combo?
