The formulas are all different but they rely either on a thick texture, or on oils that evaporate on application in order to hang the colored film, or on long-lasting pigments and often formulas oil free (without oil). So, who says long outfit also often wants to say dry result: normal, it is necessary to avoid the oils to avoid that the texture migrates, but without them, the formula is less comfortable!
New generation formulas
Fortunately, the formulas have evolved in the wake of light textures like "second skin makeup". They leave a transparent film on the skin that inspired the long-lasting foundations. Micronized pigments, very fluid product forming as an extensible mesh on the surface of the skin and composition enriched with moisturizing ingredients, long-lasting foundations have innovated! There remains only a veil on the face that does not card and stays cool until the evening.
The different options
Novelty of the autumn particularly successful, Perfection Lumière de Chanel which unifies and corrects while bringing a luminous finish to the face for a natural result.
The ultra fluid texture is light and without material effect and allows to modulate the dose deposited to adjust the coverage. The Perfect Skin Affinity complex offers a bare skin result for 15 hours with natural and leaves the skin supple. (44, 50?)
Comfortable and natural, Bobbi Brown's Even Finish Foundation Long-Wear foundation has been designed for combination skin: it is smooth and smooth, yet it maintains skin's suppleness. Based on glycerin and shea butter, it does not dry out and on the contrary hydrates throughout the day while protecting it with its SPF 15. Bonus: the range of shades is very wide and is suitable for the clearest skins with its reference "Porcelain" as the dullest with "Espresso". (Released: September 2012, 41?)
Resulting from 8 years of research, Lancôme Idole Ultra 24h promises, as its name indicates, a 24h outfit thanks to the EternalSoft technology which aims for a perfectly unified skin thanks to a formula in perfect affinity with the epidermis. Slightly matifying but not powdery, the application is melting, the texture fresh under the fingers but the result is satin and matte. (42?)
Less intense coverage but gorged texture with the new foundation Giorgio Armani Maestro fluid foundation that takes the technology of oils that evaporate to leave behind only an unsuspected finish. Very fluid and non-greasy, it settles little by little and remains in place until the evening being forgotten in favor of a second skin sensation.

Precursor, the SPF 15 Clarins High Complexion Complexion is a long-lasting "skin perfector" foundation for 15 hours! The fluid texture allows easy application thanks to its expandable dimension. Its High Fidelity System delivers a soft texture film that, combined with a complex sensor of light, offers a formidable complexion of natural ... and perfection. The skin is supple, the complexion luminous and the irreproachable behavior. (36?)
Distinguishing representative of these revolutionary textures, Diorskin Forever, Teint High Perfection Holding Fusion has on its side not only an SPF 25 but a fluid ultra sensory formula. It glides on the skin and blends in to move: the complexion is controlled, the sensation of intense lightness and unshakable coverage. (41?)
