There was definitely a time when everyone was all about cushion foundation, but it’s obvious that the trend is fizzling. While cushions are still great for touch-ups, beauty enthusiasts are going back to good ol’ foundations, because they have better coverage and are more long-lasting.
Beauty brands are aware of this trend and are rolling out new products that offer natural-looking finish, lightweight texture, and long wear. We’re spoilt for choice! Here are seven of the latest and upcoming foundations that you’d want to add to your arsenal of base products.
1. Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid
Clarins has launched several new makeup products made with organic and skin-loving ingredients this season, and their new foundation is something that you wouldn’t want to miss.
Creamy and ultra-lightweight, this foundation is infused with chicory plant and red jania extracts that offer anti-inflammatory and exfoliating benefits to skin. Coverage is moderate, but its imperfection-blurring pigments help skin look smoother and more even.
Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid (SGD60) is available in 24 shades and retails at all Clarins boutiques and counters.
2. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation
The OG Fenty Beauty foundation is well-loved by many but those with dry skin often complain that its ultra-matte finish may be too drying for them. It looks like Rihanna has listened to everyone’s feedback, and now the brand has launched a more hydrating version of the formula, catered for those with normal to dry skin types.
This foundation still has the same 50 shades, great coverage, and longwear capability of the original foundation, but it also features Grape Seed Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate to offer a more nourishing and hydrating finish.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation (SGD52) is available in 50 shades and retails at Sephora, from 15 August.
3. SOFINA Primavista Ange Liquid Foundation
Perfect for those with oily skin type, this has a long-lasting formula that keeps skin looking matte and free from shine. Its unique oil-control formula ensures that makeup doesn’t turn cakey and looks smooth all day long.
You’ll also love how lightweight it feels and the natural, radiant finish it delivers. We’re also not complaining about its pocket-friendly price!
SOFINA Primavista Ange Liquid Foundation (SGD22) is available in four shades and retails at Welcia and Don Don Donki outlets.
4. Becca Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation
Lightweight and with a natural finish, Becca’s newest foundation promises the perfect balance of coated pigments and water so that coverage is breathable and that the formula won’t clog pores.
Formulated to last 24 hours, the high-performing foundation is also water-, sweat-, humidity-, and transfer-resistant. Its coverage is sufficient to camouflage concerns like acne, hyperpigmentation, and redness, so you can keep concealer to a minimal.
Becca Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation (SGD68) is available in 42 shades and retails at Sephora.
5. Nudestix Tinted Cover
Formulated as an innovative Korean skincare formula, Tinted Cover delivers a natural finish with buildable pigments and helps even and brighten skin tone. It also contains skin-loving ingredients that protect your skin from environmental aggressors while moisturising it.
Formulated with a water-resistant barrier for long wear, it has Lavender Oil and Heart Chakra Oil in its formula to help you relax and calm your nerves – sounds like the perfect product to put on before a stressful work day!
Nudestix Tinted Cover (SGD52) is available in 14 shades and retails at Sephora from 12 September.
6. Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation
This opulent foundation has a silky and luxurious texture that’s easily controlled and buildable. For the time-starved, you’ll be happy to know that the formula is self-setting, so you’re good to go for the whole day after application.
Its formula also contains a Vita-Serum Complex that helps protect skin against the formation of wrinkles and boosts hydration. This technology helps ensure that your complexion always looks air-brushed and smooth.
Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation (SGD100) is available in 36 shades and retails at Sephora.
7. Stila Hide & Chic Foundation
This has a unique “shake-to-activate” formula that releases a blend of skin-loving ingredients such as Plant Collagen Extract to firm skin, Baobab Seed Extract to fight against external aggressors, and Irish Sea Moss to boost hydration.
It delivers a fresh, silky finish, so your complexion looks hydrated, plump, and even. The humidity-proof formula is also perfect for our weather, so you’ll enjoy absolute comfort while flaunting your flawless-looking complexion.
