There are only five shades of the Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation & Concealer available. I use Porcelain which is the lightest one. I often struggle to find foundations that are pale enough for me so I'm very pleased to say that it matches my skin colour exactly. As I mentioned the foundation itself is very sheer. I would say the coverage is maybe one step up from a tinted moisturiser or BB cream. It applies really nicely with just your fingers but I always prefer to use a buffing brush. It builds well without looking cakey but never fully covers any redness present. The texture is very runny & wet. Although it feels light & fresh on the skin, I feel like it never completely sets & is slightly tacky to the touch. I've not powdered it in the above photo so you can see how it looks straight on the skin but normally I would always set it properly. My t-zone looks just a tiny bit too shiny otherwise. It feels very hydrating so I would say that anyone without oily skin would fare well with this foundation. On my combination skin it lasts about six hours without primer or setting powder. One of my favourite things about this foundation is the gorgeous dewy glow it gives to the skin. It makes my face look really healthy & radiant. It has a luminescent, light-reflecting finish which gives such a lovely youthful appearance. It would be ideal for anyone with mature skin but looks just as nice on us young'uns.
The little concealer is absolutely brilliant on blemishes! Where the foundation fails to cover redness, this concealer totally corrects it. Anyone who subscribes to the Lisa Eldridge method of using a light foundation & then doing pinpoint concealing would love this product. The texture is very creamy & it melts into the skin. It blends really well with the foundation & helps to give the appearance of naturally clear skin. However I don't find that the concealer is that effective under my eyes. It just doesn't cover my dark circles as much as I would like & it is very prone to creasing. If you do use it under your eyes then setting it with a good powder is absolutely imperative. It works well with a bit of Bobbi Brown Corrector underneath or a few dabs of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer blended on top if, like me, you do need some extra coverage there. In the above picture I'm just wearing the Daniel Sandler concealer with some Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder on top. It looks okay but I personally prefer my dark circles to be completely covered. Considering you're getting both a foundation & a concealer, the £28 price tag is very reasonable. I love how the foundation & concealer look on my skin although they're definitely reserved for good skin days. Anyone with excessive blemishes, redness or scarring should probably steer clear but if you've not found your perfect sheer coverage base products yet, then this could be exactly what you're looking for.
