By Terry Hyaluronic Face Glow (HK$785/40ml)
Claim: an alternative to foundation, this tinted filling face base offers full correction with no heavy feel; contains hyaluronic acid molecules to help form a fresh and extra smoothing texture; erases open pores, wrinkles, fine lines and blemishes.
Burberry Fresh Glow (HK$320/30ml)
Claim: a luminous fluid base that can be used on its own for immediate radiance; apply on the skin as a classic foundation, use as an illuminator on top of make-up or apply directly to skin to sculpt the face and highlight the contours.
Verdict: Despite its anti-ageing claims, Clinique's foundation seems like a classic make-up, with clean, medium coverage and useful SPF 15 sun protection. Burberry's is a dewy, slightly shimmery foundation that offers light coverage but also works well under a heavier foundation for a smoother, more luminous effect. By Terry's foundation applies easily and has the most consistent and longest wearing coverage of the three - its smooth texture makes it seem like very little make-up has been applied.
