Can anybody recommend a good coverage foundation, I have tried several over the years but not found one I’ve really been impressed with, I am 68 so obviously mature skin

Looking at my magnified mirror this morning, Polyfilla would be the answer for me. I gave myself a fright. grin

Joking aside, I did used to use one by Estee Lauder a few years ago and it was beautiful ( didn't have as many wrinkles then ) but I've forgotten what it was called. They've probably brought another out since though I'm sure there are cheaper ones which do the job.

Estée Lauder Double Wear is the best of all.
Possibly that was the one Ellan?

I have used Estee Lauder Double Wear for years but I have recently tried the EL Double wear light and that has very good coverage too. Excellent products

I came on to say the EL ones are highly rated but see that everyone else agrees .

I tried it before lockdown at a John Lewis event . The girl applying it mixed it with a little highlighting moisturiser to give a little dewiness to the look .

Too much coverage for me but I would use it I wanted that look .

Having tried almost everything over the years I have now landed on Nars (get the pun smile. Its called Sheer Glow just write for mature skin- goes on beautifully. I do tend to use a primer though to get a good surface.

My daughter has recommended the Estee Lauder one as well so thank you I think I will try that

Have been this afternoon and bought one with a little help from an assistant but she wasn’t really trained for that so what boots have said that if I find it’s not the right one I can take it back and change it even though it’s been used, this is because they cannot give samples at the moment. Could cause an awful lot of waste product I imagine....
