The first step to a flawless makeup look is a solid foundation base. In the summer months not only do I tend to look for a lighter foundation that still provides the coverage I want and need, but I also look for one that’s easy to use and apply, so I can get out the door sooner to enjoy the sun. The new Lise Watier Lumière Cushion Compact Liquid Foundation-to-Go is not only portable, making it easy to use in any situation, it’s also refillable, which not only saves me money, but is safer for the environment. By applying a small amount it will help to even out skin tone for a radiant finish, but its lightweight formula is easily buildable to hide blemishes and provide more coverage.
Lise Watier Lumière Cushion Compact Liquid Foundation-to-Go comes in a round black shiny compact with a liquid-dispensing cushion foundation found within. Upon opening the first compartment, you will reveal a mirror and puff applicator, then you simply open the other lid to reveal the actual cushion foundation. It has a whipped, almost mousse-like texture that feels lighter than air once applied to the skin. To apply, simply press the sponge into the cushion to lightly release the liquid foundation. Then gently tap the sponge with the foundation onto your skin. You can easily build up the coverage to your desired look, without it becoming too heavy or thick.
Lise Watier Lumière Cushion Compact Liquid Foundation-to-Go applies quickly and easily, is extremely blendable and instantly creates a seamless look. It provides a sheer to medium coverage with a dewy, not oily, soft finish. It is comfortable to wear the entire day without feeling tight, dry or caky. Its light as air formula glides on effortlessly like a good liquid foundation should, but provides an incredibly fresh and glowing finish.
Because Lise Watier Lumière Cushion Compact Liquid Foundation-to-Go features a dual lid, I find it tends to last longer, without drying out, compared to other liquid foundations. On days when I’m looking for a more natural look I can apply a thin layer, perfect for early morning wakeup calls when you’re looking for a perfect complexion without the fuss. On nights when I’m looking for a little more coverage and a flawless canvas, I can simply apply a second layer for a more medium to full coverage effect.
For someone who suffers from extremely dry skin, Lise Watier Lumière Cushion Compact Liquid Foundation-to-Go not only provides excellent coverage, it doesn’t accentuate any dryness or settle into fine lines. Once set and dry, it stays put the entire day without creasing, fading or oxidizing. Added bonus, its travel friendly. It offers a radiant, natural and second-skin effect that’s light as air. The only downside, it’s not offered in that many shades, currently only 3 shades, so finding your perfect shade might be a challenge? It retails for $46 and the refill, which comes with a new applicator retails for $36.
