Perfect for giving skin a translucent lit-from-within look, this Japanese brand’s foundation has a high concentration of skincare serum with pigments for the sheerest coverage. It comprises ceramides and peony extract to moisturise and firm the skin. It also has SPF28/PA+++, making it the foundation to wear as you chase the golden light during your outdoor wedding shoots.
The first foundation with the brand’s microfluidic technology, which makes it possible to unite water- and oil-soluable phases in the product so you get ultra-micro oil ingredients in a water-like coating. This gives the foundation a luminous finish, skin-nourishing properties plus the weightlessness and freshness of a water-based texture.
