Sheer Radiance Serum Foundation

(Formula #101-10J)

Sheer Radiance Serum Foundation

Why we love it:

Forget the heavy, matte make-up of the past. This fresh formulation is a glow-inducing, skin-enhancing, lightweight foundation that’s packed with active ingredients that repair and restore skin. The sheer tint allows for easy blending and layering for just the right amount of coverage and a radiantly dewy, natural finish.

Formulation highlights:

Meadowfoam Seed Oil XPR adds superior oxidative stability and a light-yet-luxe skin feel to the formulation. Daikon Seed Extract contributes a silicon-like slip while improving skin barrier function. Matrixyl® 3000 free is a synergy of two peptides that promotes wrinkle smoothing and improves tone and elasticity. Bentone® Luxe XO creates a stable water-in-oil emulsion with high oil load that’s anything but greasy.
