Best of 2011: Foundation

Erm, this is a bit of a fail I’m afraid as of all the foundations I’ve tried in 2011 – none of them have really blown me away to call them the ‘Best of’ – I think Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua has to be up there, but even that I haven’t gotten around to reviewing, so can’t have been that impressed since I bought it in the summer.

So instead of foundation I decided I wanted to give it to another face product so I chose Nars Multiple in ‘G Spot’ from the Christmas collection. This multiple is gorgeous, especially on winter skin – it’s a deep red with a golden shimmer running through it and since I reviewed it back in October it has been a number one blusher choice for me (and occasionally for a bit of lip colour too) it creates a gorgeous healthy flush, with a bit of a glow thanks to the gold shimmer. Because it’s creamy it helps keep winter skin looking a bit healthier and I absolutely adore it.

The big pinky/red swatch in the middle is Nars G Spot – gorgeous!

It’s one that when a friend was over and we were obsessively cooing over make-up she swatched it and fell for it immediately. Writing down the name to order as soon as she got home. It’s that good.

Despite the colour looking a bit scary, it really isn’t – it would suit a whole range of skin tones as it blends easily but can be built up for stronger colour if wanted.

So no winners for me in terms of foundation this year (boo) but love this Nars multiple instead.
