Couleur Caramel is a Paris based natural make-up brand. I’ve found the quality of the products I’ve tried to be excellent, with this illuminating Make-up Base being no exception.
I was impressed right from the start and it’s become a regular part of my morning makeup routine. I’d say this is the perfect choice if your skin is dry, mature or a little lacklustre.
I’ve heard Ruth Crilley (A Model Recommends) describing her skin as ‘bouncy’ after using certain products and that is exactly what comes to mind when I use this. Bouncy skin! Who doesn’t want bouncy skin?!
I’ve not been wearing much in the way of a base over the last few weeks, just a little BB cream (either Green People’s or Couleur Caramel), so can’t vouch for it as a make-up primer. I can tell you, however, that this make-up base keeps my skin hydrated more than anything else I’ve used.
I apply it as I would a moisturiser after my normal skincare routine and sometimes skip using a base on top. It leaves my skin looking fresh (well, fresher) and dewy, with a definite glow. My skin feels as though I’ve just applied moisturiser hours after using this. I think this is thanks to ingredients such as squalane and sweet almond oil. It has quite a strong (not unpleasant) scent which reminds me of sun cream (my son also said sun cream).
Couleur Caramel use recycled or recyclable, biodegradeable packaging for all of their products.
