1. Revlon Age Defying Makeup With Botafirm?
The first plus about this foundation is it has SPF15. Although it feels thick out of the bottle, it thins out upon application and blending. The coverage is light to light/medium, it blends well with the skin and doesn?t make you look like you are wearing mask-like foundation. Although there was no major visible difference in reduction of lines, but when used with Revlon Age Defying Skin Smoothing Powder with Botafirm?, there is a smooth, matte finish.
RRP $36.95 Revlon Age Defying Makeup With Botafirm SPF15. RRP $32.95 Revlon Age Defying Skin Smoothing Powder with Botafirm?. For stockists information contact 1800 025 488

2. Dermalogica Treatment Foundation
If you are a Dermalogica fan then you won?t be disappointed by this foundation. Its oil-free formula helps protect your skin whilst maintaining a light texture all day long. This foundation comes in eight different colours and even comes with 2 hypo-allergenic sponges! As opposed to some of the other fabulous Dermalogica products this foundation is fragrance free which will appeal to many of us who prefer our cosmetics unscented.
RRP $60 Stockists: 1800 659 118

3. Elizabeth Arden Sheer Lights Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser
This is the perfect product for all those tinted moisturiser fans out there! It applies on smooth and creamy, with just a hint of shimmer to give you a beautiful summery glow. The coverage lasts all day and its optical light diffusers blur fine lines, giving you a younger appearance. Best yet, it?s got SPF15 in it so you?re protecting your skin at the same time!
RRP $52 Stockists: (02) 8877 5000

4. Makeup Forever Compact Tint/Cream Foundation Refillable
This compact is great for light coverage. It has a reasonably creamy texture and is oil free, so is perfect for sensitive skin types. Although it tones down light imperfections, it doesn?t give the most effective coverage. Probably best when you?re going to the natural look and don?t want a heavy foundation.
RRP $69 Each refill thereafter $40 Stockists: (02) 9663 4277

5. Max Factor Sheer Radiance Colour Adapt
This is another yummy product that gives a summery appearance, even in the dead of winter. Max Factor Sheer Radiance by Colour Adapt is a lightweight foundation with a bit of shimmer, so you look lovely and sparkly all day long! The texture is quite light however the coverage is substantial and you won?t need much to cover the entire face.
RRP $34.95 From Myer, Target, Kmart, Big W, Price line and selected pharmacy outlets.

6. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Shimmering Moisturiser
OK, I confess, I am the ultimate consumer for sexy packaging and this product certainly satisfies my need. Shimmering Moisturiser is not just a tinted mosituriser or foundation, but can be used for highlighting features on your face and body, use on temples, brows, eyes and cheeks. When using as a tinted moisturizer, leave un-powdered for shimmer effect or lightly set with lose powder for subtle glow. Summer may be over but you can still glow throughout winter.
RRP $55 Available Myer Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne & Perth or at www.beccacosmetics.com
