Laura Geller Filter First Luminous Foundation | New Launch

You might have seen on of my recent posts where I shared Laura Geller’s new collection. The concealer has been my go-to and I also shared blemish coverage which was appreciated.

The Filter First Collection includes Luminous foundation and concealer which are weightless yet give pretty impressive coverage. Filter First Luminous Foundation (£30) is your favourite filter, in a bottle for flawless skin, in real life and who doesn’t want that?!

The foundation features medium to full coverage foundation with a soft luminous finish. As per Laura Geller, Each weightless fluid drop is formulated with finely crushed pearls that act like your favourite filter to diffuse light, blurring imperfections so your skin looks flawless. I have to agree on the blurring imperfections part as the foundation photographs beautifully.

Laura Geller Filter First Foundation Swatches - Ms Tantrum Blog

Overall thoughts: I’m pretty impressed with the coverage, luminosity and weightless texture of this foundation. I do feel LG needs to add more shades to this range as the formula is pretty amazing. If you can find your shade (you may get shade match done via Laura Geller website or at Debenhams counter), you will be impressed with the beautiful satin finish with lit from within radiance.

The foundation is available from August at select Debenhams stores, Debenhams website, BeautyBay and Fabled .

Until next time
