Our Coverage Foundation delivers full coverage without a heavy-makeup look. This cream-like formula is perfect for everyday use because it is compatible with most primers, has a semi-matte finish, and our suspension system allows the pigments to stay on for longer. Just like everything in our Colours collection, this foundation is designed to be suitable for all skin types and available in a range of 36 shades.
The shades are divided into four categories:
1 for lighter tones
2 for medium tones
3 for dark/deep tones
4 for deeper tones.
Each category is then classified further by a second digit from 0 to 4 to indicate depth within each category.
Finally, a letter is added to the shade code to identify the undertone:
P (Pink) and R (Red) indicate cool undertones
N indicates a Neutral tone
Y (Yellow) indicates a warm undertone
Three of the shades have an additional letter at the end which use natural-looking and exceptionally fine dispersions of metallic effect pigments for added highlight:
S indicates Silver highlights
G indicates Gold highlights
