I was given a sample of Perfection Lumiere when I went to pick up the Spring collection nail polishes about a month or so. There seemed to be pretty mixed reviews on this when it was first released so I was interested to try it but not expecting too much.
I was matched to B30 and tried it once when I got home. I thought it was okay but nothing special; it seemed to oxidise quite badly on my skin that day.
I've been on a bit of a foundation/tinted moisturiser sample kick recently and I've actually bought two new foundations based off trying and loving samples of them so I was pleased I didn't rate this too much.
However! I've been having some pretty bad skin days recently due to horrible breakouts/scarring on my chin so I decided to try this sample again. I buffed it on with a damp Real Techniques Stippling brush; I'd used that brush the first time I applied it too but it was dry. For some reason the damp brush made a huge difference and the foundation looked much better on my skin.
It also didn't oxidise anywhere near as much as it had when I first used it and the staying power was pretty amazing on my oily t-zone without the need for powder. It has a floral scent which may bother some people but I actually quite like it.
I've included a photo of my chin to show you how well it covered the blemishes/scars without concealer.
Overall, I do quite like this when applied with a damp brush. It's definitely not a bad foundation but I don't think it's £36's worth of amazing, though so I think I'll pass for now.
On the rest of my face I'm just wearing Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid blush in Gentle, BeneFit They're Real mascara and MAC Lush Amber lipstick.
