Dolce and Gabbana have created an innovative and luxurious foundation with makeup artist icon, and Dolce Gabbana Creative Advisor, Pat McGrath.
Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation as always, looks (and feels) incredibly glamorous - the pump bottle is quite heavy glass and the gold cap adds just the right touch. As for the formula, it is spot on for achieving a dewy - glowy (not oily!) effect. Pat is a master at creating products with incredible "feel" and this one is no exception.
The texture is silky - almost like applying a cream on the fingers, but without any feel of heaviness or stiffness once it hit my skin. As a matter of fact, there's a bit of a "gel-like" feel to it, so it molded and melted into my skin almost like a second skin. Instantly I could see the glowy effect, which was also very moisturizing and perfect for my drier cheek area.
Note: If you have very oily skin, this will not be the best formula for you. The glowy effect is in part from very tiny illuminating mica particles, and goes on smoothly, so it can be layered for the coverage you desire - very sheer or a medium/full coverage. I loved using it with a foundation brush in particular to really get a nice diffused effect, but I sometimes used just my fingers and had great results. It didn't clog my pores, and the staying power was great.
As for the glowy effect on my more combination areas like my t-zone, it didn't add a ton of oil, but I did have to do a light blot during the day, which I didn't mind. I used the highest number in the line, Soft Sable (pictured above), with good color match results.
There's no doubt about it, if you want a beautiful, polished finish (and want to treat yourself to a little piece of Dolce and Gabbana glamour, don't hesitate to pick this little wonder up! - RLB
