This La Colline Velvet Touch Two Way Cake Foundation really lives up to its name, giving me a complexion that looks incredibly velvety and radiant. I’m into my second and I have to say I’m rather happy with it.
It was however not the case initially when I started using it. My face actually appeared cakey and splotchy after application and I was vastly disappointed because I was hoping that it would do better than the Estee Lauder’s Cyber White 2-way cake I was using earlier. So out of frustration, I switched to Stila’s Angel Light Whitening Powder Foundation and was more or less happy with the latter.
Then by chance, I realised that the real reason for the uneven look was because my skin wasn’t hydrated enough. So I decided to try La Colline Velvet Touch again by spraying my face with Suisse Programme’s Bio Cellular Oxy Water before each application. True enough, no more unnatural cakey look! In fact, I can see a clear difference in my face when I use La Colline’s and Stila’s now. The former product gives me a sort of shine and makes my face look more luminous!
La Colline’s Velvet Touch, which is available at Sasa for S$69, is a long lasting ultra-fine foundation with titanium dioxide for that extra UV protection. My only gripe at the moment with this product is that it is slightly costly and there are no refills available, unlike most other brands.
