Since I have tried quite a few products from Ciate lately, I was thrilled to see that they have recently released a new foundation, the Ciate Radiant & Hydrating Extraordinary Foundation. This is available in 20 shades, which isn't bad for a new release and is suitable for all skin types, but particularly normal to dry.
The Foundation comes in a 50ml tube, with a pump applicator and I love the nude and rose gold packaging so much. I think 50ml is a great size too for a foundation as they are often around 30ml, so you are getting plenty of usage here. If you like a good buildable coverage with a healthy, radiant finish then you are quite possible going to love this foundation.
Ciate boast a long-lasting formula, and whilst this did last all day, I never wear makeup for 16 hours so I cannot say whether that is true. The radiant finish reminds me a little of the IT Cosmetics Illuminating CC Cream, which is my absolute favourite. I was able to cover my entire face with just one pump-ful and I tried it without a primer, and oh my goodness it did an amazing job at hiding my pores, which is something I very rarely get from a foundation alone.
I found the foundation to be very lightweight which is great for the Summer months when the weather is warmer and it contains some great ingredients such as botanical extracts Mimosa and Arctic Rose, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin, Squalene to moisturise and Bamboo Extract to control oil. I have combination skin, with an oily T-Zone and dry cheeks, and this kept my cheeks moisturised and my oiliness at bay.
Shade-wise, I ordered 106P Silk, which is the third lightest, and this added a slight warmth to my light skin tone which I am loving! Sometimes foundations make me look like an egg, but I loved how this one added that touch of warmth without getting a foundation line around my neck. This is definitely a winner for me!
The Ciate Radiant & Hydrating Extraordinary Foundation costs £28.00 for 50ml as mentioned, which I really do think is such great value. You can find it online at Ciate here.
All the Loves,
