Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Eve Lom Radiance Lift

Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation ($60) is probably one of my most favorite high end foundations of the moment.

I’m actually more of a BB Cream girl but lately I’ve been testing out a good deal of fluid and second-skin like foundations and really loving the formulas. Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation isn’t marketed as such a formula but the super lightweight texture provides very, very good coverage and has a smooth, weightless feel on my complexion. I love breathable coverage as I don’t need a ton of it so anything that not only looks natural but feels natural makes my skin very happy indeed.

Let’s take a look!

Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation

Available in 15 shades, Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation is actually marketed as an anti-aging foundation which contains an SPF 15. It contains plant extracts such as Rose Flower Wax as well as Vitamins C and E to help lift and firm skin while repairing elasticity to keep skin hydrated and smooth looking!

I don’t have issues myself with elasticity problems or finer lines. My main issue with my skin would be dryness and dullness. My skin is lackluster without makeup on and I use foundation, BB Cream, or CC Cream as an aid to brighten my skin up and give it a healthy look.

I was a little worried about this formula as it does claim a benefit of illuminating the skin. I love shimmer but not in my foundation products however, no worries, I didn’t feel this contained glitter or shimmer of any kind. It’s supposedly beneficial for all skin types but I, myself, have drier skin and though it quite moisturizing thanks to the hyaluronic acid it contains. Not only does it feel moist but it also aids in retaining moisture so my skin feels and looks smooth and soft but not dewy, shiny, or greasy. It also contains ceramides to strength skin which results in skin looking lifted and softened, this is especially helpful if your skin is showing signs of sagging.

The texture is creamy yet quite thin and absorbs easily during application. Coverage is sheer to medium depending the amount you apply. I find no matter how much I built the finish was still very smooth, soft, and natural. One important factor of the formula is the fact that it brightens well without looking pasty or shimmery. My skin looks softened and brighter on the first application and the visible effect lasts well into a six hour period. I would say it has a second-skin finish as it never feels heavy nor does it look cakey. It gives a no makeup appearance yet still manages to hide issues you may have such as darkness, redness, and other skincare woes you’re wishing to conceal.

We want so many things from our foundation but most importantly we want it to look and feel natural without suffocating our skin. Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation formula manages to bring together a range of great ingredients with a smooth, soft texture that looks and feels natural!

If you’re looking for a complexion boasting foundation that brightens and lifts I’m sure you’ll love this formula!
