if you’re in to the glowing skin and “natural” or “no make up” looks, these two products are really good on their own and together to create skin that looks like skin, but has incredible illumination. elizabeth arden flawless finish mousse make up is the nicest foundation i have ever used. i usually hate mousse make up, but this one is different as it’s a very watery liquid that pumps in to a foam, and when you blend it out it magically becomes the perfect consistency, fits to your skin tone and goes so far!
the jemma kidd front cover touch up concealer is not a gleaming/glowy product but is also not completely matte. it does provide great illumination under the eyes, and i put it on the sides of my face and around my nose where i have severe redness that the light coverage foundation doesn’t completely cover up. i pat it in to the skin with the same brush i blended in my foundation with and it works beautifully.
the foundation is buildable if you allow it to dry between applications, and i have applied more of it to my red areas to skip concealer before and it looked nice.
i was lucky enough to get them both for $5 in discount bins in chemist warehouse and mychemist, because i only buy make up on sale and look for bargains constantly. in australia i think i saw somewhere that the foundation retails for around $50 and the concealer for around $20.
