I was sent this product to review by Hairtrade.com, the Uk's leading online retailer of hair extensions, hair care and beauty products.
I've been wanting to try out the Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation & Concealer* since I heard Pixiwoo raving about it about a year ago, so I had high expectations for it.
First off the packaging - I really like this elegant wee bottle!
Although it contains a foundation and a concealer, it's still compact enough for travelling.
At first, I thought the bottle was glass but it's made of plastic instead, a bonus for my-accident-prone-self.
On the top, you have a lid with the concealer & a decent mirror and then a screw top below, with the foundation. The foundation also comes with a spatula to scoop the product out: both practical and hygienic.
I wasn't sure about the colour to pick, at first - after a quick browse online, I decided to go with Porcelain, the lighter shade, because Beige looked a bit too yellow for me.
Luckly enough, Porcelain turned out to be a good match - I will need to darken it a bit in the summer but I can wear it without any correction now and avoided an unflattering undertone for my skin.
First of all I must say that every time I try a new foundation, I compare it to my all time favourite: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. It's fair to say that this is the foundation I chose for my wedding so the benchmark is pretty high! I have tried some good - actually really good - foundation in 2012 but nothing could quite compare to the Nars one.
Until now! Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance is a foundation with a capital F!
The formulation melts into the skin; I like to apply it with my fingertips and the heat helps to blend it into a second - better - skin.
It delivers everything I want in a foundation - that radiant and dewy look - with an invisible beautifying finish. It's still nicely buidable, yet undetectable.
The concealer sets nicely and effortless to apply, thanks to the creamy texture; unfortunately my dark circles are just too severe so I have been using it as a corrector around my eye area.
Instantly pleased with the results... what do you think??!
