Jemma Kidd Light As Air Foundation

Hi there girlies !

How's everyone doing on this lovely Saturday afternoon !? I'm doing just fine. I was doing my homework and then suddenly thought hey I've not done a review for ages, it's about time I did one on the Jemma Kidd Light As Air Foundation! I've been using this foundation for a good 6 months (I didn't realise I had it for that long!). And even after using it every day for the past 6 months there still is like 1/4 of the product left. Well worth those 28 pounds spent. 

Let's talk packaging. I don't dislike the idea of having liquid foundation in a tube but when the foundation is as liquid-y as this one... not sure it's the best one. As you can see in the pictures above, it gets real dirty with some product going all over the place ! This happens when you travel with it / put it in your make-up bag. If you leave it at home It stays pretty clean...
The product itself is a very light and watery foundation which I like because it doesn't feel like you have a ton of make-up on your skin.If you suffer from acne and you have a lot of blemishes and spots to hide, this is not something for you. This foundation is for someone who has a bit of redness and few imperfections to hide. I've had until recently some bad skin and I just hated this foundation because it didn't do the trick. I've been on Roaccutane for the last 4 weeks therefore my skin has improved a lot. Skin is now baby soft and I don't have all the little imperfections I used to have but I still do have redness. This is what this foundation is good for, hiding redness. If redness is your issue I promise you will love this foundation. It does tend to slide off your face at the end of the day so if that's something that bothers you you might need to invest in a primer as well. 

All in all, this is a good foundation, not an amazing one. After reading all those reviews on the blogosphere I really had high expectations for this product and I have to admit I was really disappointed. But now that my skin has improved i've finally figured out what the foundation is good for : skin with redness. So all you people with problems of redness you might want to run over to your nearest Space.NK that does supply this foundation (I got mine at Harvey Nichols!) and get colour-matched. You'll see how amazing this is. 

By the way, i'm looking for a good tinted moisturiser does anyone know of a good one ? Please leave your recommendations in the comments. It will be much appreciated :) 

Hope you enjoyed x


  1. Really want to try this foundation soon!
    I recommend the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer as it has a little bit more coverage than the typical tinted moisturizers.. or if you're looking for a very very light tint then Origins Vitazing is lovely too, but it has very little/barely there coverage but it gives your skin a lovely glow!


    1. You should try it ! It's really worth the money :) I'll definitely be checking out those two tinted moisturisers you recommended me !

  2. I love your review!
    great post!

  3. Hi Laura, could you please tell what shade this is? Thank you!
