We tried a couple things and I discovered the issue with the foundation I've been using is 1) it goes cakey because it's too drying for my skin and 2) my skin tone is more a blue-pink than yellow-red, hence the orange look. I ended up going with 02 (Lys Rose) from the Teint Idole Ultra 24H range and I think it suits my skin tone a lot better. The foundation came in at £27.50, which though quite dear was still not much more than the crappy No7 stuff I'd had before. Whilst I was there I decided to pick up some concealer too, which is really where the cost came in because it was nearly as much as the foundation for a quarter of the size! I'd better make it last, hey?
Have any of you ladies used Lancôme, and did you find it to your taste? What's your favourite foundation, and what would you be willing to pay for a really good one?
