B.Radiant Illuminating Foundation

I'm on a mission to find a dupe for the amazing YSL Touche Eclat Foundation. It hasn't happened yet, but I have been getting pretty close and discovering some amazing foundations. This, the B. Radiant Illuminating Foundation, being one of them. 
B. Radiant Illuminating Foundation in 010 Linen, £9.99 link
It's really nice in packaging, which is a huge bonus for me. The bottle is glass, and the fonts etc looks really nice on it. It feels more expensive than it is, and I love that it has a pump. It seems strange to comment on this, but the pump dispenses the perfect amount of foundation too. 

It offers a dewy finish, and it brightens up the skin. The foundation offers a light coverage, but it can be built up a little. I helps me hide what I want, so I love it. It takes out the redness in my skin, helps tone down  but not erase the million freckles that  frequent my face and it evens out my skin tone. 

It claims to have 8 hours wear, but without setting it, that's not going to happen. It lasts about 5 or 6 maybe if I don't set it but with a light dusting of powder it lasts 8 hours and even a little more.

I have the shade 010 Linen, which is the lightest shade they offer. It is yellow toned, but if you are looking for a nice pale shade but want something a little more pink toned I would say 020 Rose Ivory is your best option. It matched my skin, but I wanted something a little more yellow to neutralize my pink skin tone. 

You get 29ml, which is a slightly random amount but it's close to the standard 30ml you normally get with foundation and it is cruelty free.  It also contains UVA/UVB filters, and hyaluronic acid. It's great for my dry skin, for those with oily skin please go grab something else. This will slide of your face like nothing else. If you have combination skin, you might be able to get away with it, but I would say use a good primer and really set it with powder.  

Overall, I love this B. Radiant  Illuminating foundation. I leaves a nice dewy finish and brightens the skin. I would highly recommend it for people with dry skin. You can get it from selected Superdrug stores, or online here for just £9.99.

  1. I have seen this range in Superdrug & tried the Micellar Water & like that.
    The foundation sounds great. I like a foundation that brightens and gives my skin a glow. Like the Rimmel Wake Me Up

  2. It's a great range! I'm so impressed with it all. The foundation is great, I can't wait to try more of their foundations.


I read and reply to every comment, and love hearing from you all!
