By now you know that I am completely obsessed with Decorte Cosmetics.  This is a fabulous Japanese line that is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue.  The color cosmetics are incredible.  I’ve previously written about their lip palettes – The New Nudes and The New Reds, both gorgeous lippie collections that have totally converted me into a lip palette lover.  I’ve also written about the Priming Essence, which is a beautiful opalescent primer that I am now using sparingly because I am dreading running out of it.  My other favorite is the Soft Creme Foundation, a fantastic foundation that will forever be in my top five foundations of all time.

Today I have one more fab foundation find from Decorte, as well as a truly impressive concealer!  This line just gets better and better.

Decorte Creme Concealer

I have the Creme Concealer ($60) in Light, and it also comes in Light Medium and Medium. Saks says, “It’s a paradox: Hyper-color and condition in one. Double-pigment technology provides extreme tonal color while helping soften delicate skin with botanicals for a most comfortable, just-matte finish. Long-wearing. Non-drying.

This stick foundation reminds me of the stick Cle de Peau concealer, although it isn’t as thick and it blends so much better.  It provides the same sort of coverage, though.  Dark undereye circles are gone, gone, gone and the concealer lasts all day long.  I have a big problem with deep blue under my eyes so I need coverage, and the Creme Concealer really takes care of everything.  Color me impressed!

Decorte Powder Foundation Compact

The Decorte Powder Foundation Compact ($95) is so lovely I can’t even sit still as I write this.  Oh is this good!!!  Saks says, “Experience the unexpected. Velvety to the touch, this compact foundation combines a soft-crystal texture with a cascade of hydrating and conditioning benefits. Uber-antioxidant Shirakaba Tonic infuses skin with calm and renewal. Washi Paper Optics create a low-definition look for a luxe new luminosity. Layers weightlessly for individual, medium coverage. Long-wearing.

The Powder Foundation Compact comes in a sleek black case with the square of powder foundation on one side and an application sponge on the other.  The application sponge is quite nice, and works well for initial application and for touch ups.  The foundation is just lovely.  It gives great coverage so easily and effortlessly – it just glides right on without any need for blending or buffing.  The finish is soft and natural and not powdery at all.  I am so in love with this!

My shade is 351 Cool Ivory.  There is a great array of shades, 12 in all, although I must say the shades seem pretty off on my computer monitor.  I deduced my foundation shade, but if you aren’t sure you can always head on over to Saks and check this out in person.  Believe me, it is WORTH IT.  If you haven’t tried Decorte yet, please do yourself a favor and check it out!!  I haven’t been so impressed with a line in a very long time.  You will have a ball and I know you’ll find lots of things you’ll never want to live without.  – Lisa

Quite possibly the best foundation ever: DECORTE Cosmetics Soft Creme Foundation

DecorteIt’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_-_cool_pearl_9

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.

You can find DECORTE Cosmetics at Saks Fifth Avenue. I really hope you will try the Soft Creme Foundation…this is one solid foundation that you will always be able to count on no matter what.  – Lisa
