At this tome of year, you tend to see brands launching lighter coverages bases and the Lottie London Velvet Skin Tint Foundation is just one of the most recent foundation launches.
Lottie London Velvet Skin Tint Foundation
Many brands are launching lightweight foundations or CC/BB creams, to impart a light layer of coverage and work to perfect the skin.
When it’s warmer outside, you don’t necessarily want a full coverage makeup look, so these lighter base options are ideal.
When I first saw the Lottie London Velvet Skin Tint Foundation, it gave me instant Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint vibes both in terms of name, and packaging design too.
I haven’t tried either so I can’t draw comparisons, but this Lottie London offering is £9.95 whilst the Glossier foundation is £20. They both have a thin consistency, so it could be that Lottie London intentionally wanted to dupe Glossier.
The Lottie London Velvet Skin Tint Foundation is designed to give the skin a lightweight, soft focus finish. Allowing you to create a smooth, natural matte canvas without that heavy foundation feel in a few drops.
With a blendable formula, for a long lasting finish. Allowing your natural skin to shine through, whilst evening out your skin tone.
There are a total of eight shades to choose from that ‘cater to several ski tones’. 8 shades isn’t enough for any brand, regardless if they’re high end or drugstore.
In 2020, they’re no exclusive for brands to be non-inclusive, and there’s only one dark shade, and one fair shade. The rest look like they’re medium, and it could most definitely be easily extended.
The Lottie London Velvet Skin Tint Foundation is vegan and contains Hyaluronic acid and coconut extract. The shades in the range are;
- Fair No10 – fair neutral
- Fair Po15 – fair peach
- Light Medium YO20 – fair yellow
- Medium NO20 – medium neutral
- Tan PO30 – medium peach
- Tan YO30 – medium yellow
- Deep YO40 – deep yellow
- Deep NO45 – deep neutral
