Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation & Concealer

Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation & Concealer - Porcelain £25.19 Hairtrade* (RRP £28.00)
I was on the hunt recently for a new foundation. Despite not needing one, I've wanted to try this Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance one with a concealer top. I thought it was quite handy and cool to have the concealer built in and so far I'm impressed with it. You get quite a lot for your money (30g) but there are a few negatives too to match.

Firstly, it doesn't have a pump so I find I waste so much more but that's only due to the top having a concealer I imagine. The concealer itself is really creamy and is great for under the eyes. On me, I find it's great for concealing my dark circles but it's a little darker than the foundation itself which isn't really a criticism. I'm probably one of the only people I've seen say this, but I never use concealer on any blemishes. It always makes them worse, feels quite suffocating to use and they seem to look more red too so I can't say how it fares on blemishes.

The foundation is quite illuminating and makes me look a lot "healthier" with a natural glow. It bodes well throughout the day too and lasts all day whilst at work. It's quite a thin consistency and when I first applied it I thought that it wouldn't cover much, but it's quite deceiving. I think this is a foundation that you'd need to have pretty good skin before hand though.

The shade choice was a pretty good match, I thought Porcelain would be way too light for me, but it just shows how pale I get in Winter! The foundation is said to be better when used with a dampened brush, but I haven't actually tried this yet. The duo is pretty good for travelling and it's easy to take instead of separates since I'm on the go a lot.

The packaging is a good idea, but the mirrored top means it gets quite dirty and full of finger prints, but I'm just being picky. Another thing I need more research on, is after starting to use this and some other skincare products, I have developed a few spots which I never get so I need to find out first if it's this foundation or a skincare product but I'll update this post once I've found out!

I like this foundation, but I don't think it's one I'd re-purchase just because of the pricing, if you're looking for a good lightweight foundation though I would recommend it.

Have you tried this foundation? What's your favourite foundation?
