Three of a Kind

Following the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation Review I thought I would bring to you some of its very similar sisters. These do differ slightly in price and performance so if you love the liquid to powder texture and finish but aren't sure which to get, hopefully this will narrow down the search.


Disclaimer: Armani has a similar foundation as well but from popular consensus the Armani was the original and these new versions are an improvement upon it.

YSL Fusion Ink Foundation (full review here)
The YSL Fusion Ink Foundation is, in my opinion, the best performing of the trio. The reason why? Because it is the most long lasting and clings the least to dry patches. It doesn't keep oil completely at bay and is the highest coverage of the three. It is great for those who want a perfected, long lasting base.

Lancome Miracle Air De Teint (full review here)
Even though the YSL is the best performing, this Lancome is my personal favourite. This version is quite refined in texture so look much lighter and diffused on the skin. It is a light to medium coverage so doesn't pack as much of a punch and it isn't particularly the best lasting foundation but in terms of the way this makes the skin looks, it is divine. I love this for easy days where I need to pop into town, have a short day at university or am going it for lunch and drinks with friends as it doesn't need to be particularly long lasting but looks so natural and beautiful on the skin.

L'Oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint
This, being the cheapest, is the "dupe" version for the above options. If you want to experience the texture of these foundations and don't want to shell out £30+ then the L'Oreal is an excellent dupe. This version is of course not quite as refined as the Lancome but has the exact same liquid to powder texture and is incredibly long lasting! Not quite as long as the YSL but it is much longer lasting than the Lancome foundation. I would say this is almost a hybrid of the two... my only gripe is that this really does enhance any dry areas of the face and clings on to any dry or flaky areas be sure to prep the skin thoroughly with a great moisturizer or a smoothing primer.
