Eve Lom Radiant Glow Cream Foundation Preview + Shopbop Big Event Sale Recommendations

Above: Testing the brand new Eve Lom Radiant Glow Cream Foundation in the shade Linen.  I took this pic after an 8 hour day with no touch ups!  Also wearing Surratt Beauty eyeshadow in Haute Chocolat, Le Metier de Beaute Cheeky Chic Kaleidoscope for contour, highlight + blush and Laura Mercier 60's Pink on the lips.
Hello Lovelies...happy cusp of the weekend to you!  This post is devoted to exactly two things:

(1) I am in the midst of experimenting with yet another foundation release...this time, the brand new Eve Lom Radiant Glow Cream Foundation.  This silky cream offers medium coverage with a natural, slightly luminous finish.  It is still to early for a comprehensive review, but my initial impressions are that it seamlessly fuses with the skin, has impressive lasting power and, overall, is a beautiful formula.  

It is everything I wished the Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Compact would be, in turn, making me one happy foundation-phile. The shade Linen is an excellent match for my NC 25 skin and, for reference, I have every shade in the original Eve Lom fluid foundation swatched HERE.  More on this ever-so-promising cream foundation soon ; )


(2) As mentioned in my most recent post on February Favorites, the Shopbop Big Event sale is in full swing now, through 3/9! This promotion features:

Beauty Professor + Shopbop Big Event Recommendations:

What caught YOUR eye from the Shopbop Big Event sale?  Do tell!

  1. All good and well, but where is the Jethro update?

    I have the Eve Lom primer and loose mineral powder. Such lovely formulas. In the past I have had the cleanser, loved, and the Radiance Cream, another love. Looking forward to your review.

  3. Hi Rachel, just wondering how this foundation compares to the new By Terry CC you just reviewed? I'm looking for something new at present. I don't need a lot of coverage & I am slightly dry skinned.Thank you for any information you can share.

    1. Hi Rose!

      Thanks for the question! I'm still in the testing phases for both so it is a challenge for me to give you a definitive answer. From first impressions, both offer buildable light to medium coverage and have a slightly radiant finish. If you are looking for more skincare benefits, then the By Terry is the way to go (especially if you can find a good shade match). The Eve Lom is excellent to toss in one's purse and feels a bit more "makeup-y" in the best possible way, expecially since I recommend applying this formula with a sponge.

      I hope this helps...xx,

    1. Hello Lynn!

      I hope you had a lovely weekend! With regards to your question, I find both the new By Terry and Eve Lom to be quite luminous. Hoping to compare/contrast them tomorrow after work...post should be live this week!

      XOXO and talk soon,

  6. Any verdict on which you like better now, the By Terry or the Eve Lom?

    1. That's tough...they perform differently. The Eve Lom is thinner, has more shade options and the compact form is awesome and the By Terry is more "plush" in terms of texture and has only 4 shades. I use the both during the week!

      XO,
