Barbara Daly Foundation

************************************************************
BARBARA DALY MAKEUP RANGE
Barbara Daly's biography is amazing. She was the MUA on A Clockwork Orange, She was Princess Di's MUA on her wedding day and she has an OBE, to name but a few achievements. With Barbara's cosmetic expertise spanning 30 years, I probably shouldn't have been so surprised at the quality of the products I picked up at Tesco a couple of weeks ago.
I bought the 'Face Lift Foundation' (£7) and the 'Super Sheer Loose Powder' (£6).
You aren't going to believe me, but I would say this foundation is extremely similar to the finish you get with Chanel's Mat Lumiere. It has a lot of coverage, sets to a finish that doesn't need powdered and it lasts all day. It's seriously fabulous and I can't believe it was only £7. Even the pot it comes in is great as you can dip your foundation brush straight in, with no mess left on the back of your hand or fingers. The only thing I would watch out for is the shade you choose as I have found they tend to dry about 1/2 - 1 whole shade darker than it looks when you first apply it.

The Super Sheer Powder is equally as super, although as I've found I don't need any powder with the facelift foundation I haven't had the need to use it very much! It doesn't cake or settle on the skin, giving a truly natural looking matte/airbrush sheen to the skin. The packaging is awesome, with the dispenser inside ensuring you don't disappear in a cloud of powder everytime you open the lid. The powder gives enough coverage that you could probably get away with keeeping this in your drawer at work as your only touch-up product needed through the day.
One product I had in and out of my trolley about 4 times was the 'FaceLift', an illuminating sheer moisturiser that can be used under makeup or on it's own. On the back of my hand it looked great, but then I'd think 'what do I really need this for' and put it back. I regret not just buying it as it was only about £5 so maybe I'll get it next time.
What do you think? Have to you tried any of this range?

  1. There used to be a good powder foundation that I used years ago, but I actually live quite far from a big enough Tescos to stock the range now, so I don't know if they still do it!
