It’s true. Without a good foundation, the quality of the rest doesn’t matter. The house will fall. The relationship will crumble. The makeup will melt. The foundation is, in essence, everything.
I was recently sent a foundation that is so good I wore it for three weeks straight thinking this HAS to be some sort of a mirage…there is no foundation this lovely, this luminous, this freaking fabulous. But it’s no hallucination…wow I love this foundation! What is my amazing foundation find? DECORTE Soft Creme Foundation ($110).
Soft Creme Foundation is a spendy foundation from an upscale Japanese line that you can find at Saks Fifth Avenue. The feel and quality of the DECORTE line is similar to Cle de Peau. In fact, the Soft Creme Foundation immediately reminded me of one of my other favorite foundations, the even spendier CDP Radiant Cream Foundation. The DECORTE Soft Cream Foundation has a more liquid consistency though and while it builds to full coverage the initial coverage is medium. The coverage is fantastic and long-lasting, looking as good at 6 pm after a very sweaty hour-long work out as it does at 8 am in the morning.
It gives a gentle, youthful radiance that is fresh and believable. One jar will last years, I swear, because I use so little and get such great coverage with it. My shade is Cool Ivory, which I have heavily swatched on the left above and buffed in on the right.
I just can’t gush enough about the way this foundation covers. It evens skin tone, makes pores nonexistent, and gives this incredible glow that looks so healthy and sweet. I do use concealer – typically IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye – and then with a tiny dusting of finishing powder the end effect is truly incredible. The foundation makes every other bit of makeup I apply look fantastic. It’s magic.
DECORTE says, “uber-antioxidant Shirakaba Tonic infuses skin with clarity and renewal. Washi Paper Optics™ create a low-definition look for a luxe new luminosity.” I say right on, DECORTE! Whatever it is, it works, and it creates the most beautiful foundation ever for the rest of my makeup.
