They have just released their Insta Glow Range 

I managed to be among the first to grab the  Brand new Insta Glow CC Cream (Released late May) 

I’ve also been on the hunt for a foundation that matches my exact skin tone , so I had a colour match for the Fresh Nude Foundation. 


This applies in a white creamy texture with small micro beads. The micro beads expand and activate as you apply pressure. 


It has to be applied first before any other makeup . If you have any other foundations or BB creams on it will match to the colour of the foundation rather than your skin.


This is an oil based product with a very thick consistency 


you only need to use a dime sized amount to get a full dewey coverage . Anymore and your face will start to look overdone.


It rubs off everywhere. My hands are completely covered as soon as I touch my face


This is an oil based product providing you will a full coverage look , but very lightweight. The product has red undertones to help give you a bronze glowing look  

You can tell from picture 3 that the BB cream is the best match for my skin, however I find the coverage to be too light. If I apply more layers my skin becomes very oily an shiny throughout the day. The Fresh Nude Foundation is the best consistency for me, however it’s not the exact colour of my skin . When we had the colour match I was a mix of the Caribbean Mahogany and the Shade Below.  The insta Glow I think is fantastic! If I want a sunkissed holiday look, this is the product i’ll use. I won’t apply anything underneath as it’s a thick consistency that will give me the moisture my skin needs on those dark dry muggy days. 

What are your thoughts? 

I’ll be doing a full coverage foundation look featuring the new Insta Glow in my next post . 

Will you be picking up the Insta Glow when it’s released?
