What I want in a foundation is something that doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup (even though I am) and doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup (even though I am). Are you with me? If so, I think I might have just found it: Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation ($98).
So you didn't really have to look too far then, the product pretty much found you with a name like that.
While I don't appreciate your tone, I agree. It does what it says on the box—and I dig that in a beauty product.
So now I guess you want to tell me why it's so great?
Yep. I could sing this puppy's praises all night so get yourself settled. First up let's talk ingredients: You've got some non-chemical SPF 30 protection happening thanks to zinc oxide and titanium dioxide; then there's the vitamin C ester which is known to counteract against red and blue tones (making it perfect for people like moi who look as though they've gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson during the night); and lest we forget DMAE (the de-sagging miracle ingredient that has been called a "facelift in a jar"), alpha lipoic acid, a super-duper antioxidant that I'm pretty sure has magical powers or mica which we know has magical powers of the wrinkle-diffusing kind.

Um. Sounds OK. I guess.
OK? Are you CRAZY woman? It's a miracle worker. It feels/looks like a regular foundation when you pump it (just two pumps will suffice), but it applies like a serum or moisturiser—really, really easily. It's quite shocking. It promises to keep skin hydrated all day long and trust me, Sugar HQ air-con seems to be stuck on max so I can safely say that it does, in even the harshest environments. It leaves skin dewy but not I've-just-been-for-a-30km-run dewy and the best bit is it's long-wearing. Honestly. One application in a whole 16 hours. Just one. So I'm not sure if you've gathered or not, but I think it's pretty good. One might even lay down such claims as the best I've ever tried.
