Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus (HK$290/30ml)

Claim: make-up that creates a flawless complexion that softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles immediately and over time, all the while working to help prevent the visible signs of ageing.

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.
