Signature Foundation Porcelain 01 - 25ml
Best I've used!!!
So I've been on the search for a good foundation for some time now. I've literally spent hundreds of pounds looking for something suitable for my oily/combination skin. Lots have been good but I've still been left with a shiny nose after a few hours. I'd had problems with acne which was amazingly cleared up by using the cleanse and polish regime with the light moisturiser.
I'd looked at the signature foundation a few times but always thought I'd probably still end up with a shiny nose after around four hours wear so I put off buying it.
But I bit the bullet the other week and I'm so pleased I did. What a result!! It goes on light, not cakey, but has lovely coverage. A little goes a long way. I checked my appearance at lunch time, no shiny nose. When I came home from work after a ten hour shift I still looked like I was wearing makeup and my face wasn't shiny. Very, very pleased indeed. If you have issues with oil this is definitely one to try. I used the loose powder to set it and it feels lovely. I've had lots of comments on how lovely my skin looks. Another great product from Liz Earle.

I bought this foundation after reading all the great reviews. I was looking for something which would provide me with all day coverage with a natural finish, and which was approved by the BUAV. I did do a colour test in a department store which stocked Liz Earle products so I felt quite confident that it would suit. One of the other reviewers mentions that she finds other foundations turn an orange colour over time, and I'm afraid this is exactly what happens to me with this one. In the bottle, it looks like a winner. Apply it, and initially it looks promising. But then something happens in the passage of time, because as it sets it develops an odd orange hue. I have given it some recognition for the texture and the fact that it doesn't unsettle my delicate skin. But I'm sorry to say, it has disappointed me hugely. The search continues.

I have tried and tested many foundations over the years and having problem skin, I need something that provides good all-over coverage. I wanted to try the Liz Earle foundation after using the Cleanse & Polish, Toner and Moisturiser and being very impressed with the results. I have to say, this foundation is by far the best I have used. It's light, it's fresh it's easy to apply, it blends beautifully over the skin and the colour match is near perfect. The only teeny tiny con is that it does have a tendency to make my nose a little shiny throughout the day, but that is easily fixed. I have worn this foundation for the last two days at work and have received a couple of compliments as to how well I look. Would definately recommend

While this is not my perfect 'holy grail' proper cover foundation, it does come close. I have tried so many brands that claim to do all sorts of magical things for your skin and then here is Liz Earle's make-up just sitting there doing what it does quietly and effectively. I'm not sure I will ever find 'the one' - my skin is so patchy with so many different needs: oily, dehydrated, spotty, eczema prone, hyper-pigmention etc etc. A lot to ask for one product (by the way the sheer skin tint actually does do the job, but not on the days when I need more coverage and staying power). But this light feathery foundation very nearly ticks all the boxes. Two draw-backs I need a shade bang in the middle of Nude and Almond (yes I could buy both and mix, but...) and the finish is slightly too matte and drying - would like a little more dewiness. Basically I want the sheer skin tint in a more highly pigmented and long lasting form. I can but dream!

My perfect foundation
I had tried so many foundations and then I found this one...I love it and I use it everyday. I have very pale skin and lots of foundations can turn a strange orange shade as the day goes on, but this foundation stays true on my skin and it feels velvety soft all day. I have oily/combination skin and I also use the Liz Earle loose powder in the lightest shade to prevent shine.
