Wednesday's beauty essential: Eve Lom make-up

I've been a fan of Eve Lom's fabulous cleansing balm for years, and I don't travel anywhere without the little travel pack, it's the only way to keep my skin looking somewhat normal after red-eye flights, back to back meetings, and far less sleep than any doctor would recommend. So it's a bit of a surprise that I only recently tried out the new make-up range... but the thing is I like to have finished a product before trying a new one, except of course when we're talking of a  really underwhelming one of course, that goes straight for the bin after a few tries! So it's only when I needed a new concealer that I walked into my local SpaceNK to check out the new range.


I stuck to what I needed this time round: concealer, primer and new mineral powder foundation. It seems very unlikely I ever go back to any other range...

The concealer is sheer and covering at the same time, it blends amazingly into my skin and doesn't looked caked on; any imperfections (not that I had any, of course, hmm) is blurred off, leaving a soft-focus result: bye-bye dark circles and super-sized pores, hello nothing. It's particularly good under the eyes, where the special blend of plant extracts helps skin renewal and micro-circulation.

The primer is another wonder product filled with skincare goodness: vitamins, sodium hyaluronate (that's plumping, didn't you know?) etc. to keep my skin looking dewy and to soften all the hard left-overs from all my stress-filled days.

But my absolute favourite is a bit of a surprise for me: so far all the mineral foundations I'd tried besides Bare Minerals have proved super underwhelming... Not Eve Lom's. All natural, this is super finely milled, it's soft and light and comes in six shades making it easy to choose one that matched mine. I use it with a round kabuki brush, blending and working over the primer to achieve a dewy finish. No matt flatness here. It lasts the full day as well, although the packaging is so pretty it's a shame not to take it off your make-up bag  for a little touch up at tea time.

Their packaging caught my eye the other day in Space NK, their skincare is lovely too.

I used to use their cleanser until I realized how much mineral oil they use in it so I have had to change unfortunately. But I will check out the foundation.

Thanks for your comments ladies! @Coulda, I agree the cleanser's got quite a lot of mineral oils, but it is a fab cleanser... I've recently switched back toe Shu Uemura's oil for the time being, it' fab. xx
