PR samples. Affiliate links | I have been wearing the Ciate Extraordinary Foundation all week & I have to say, I am really impressed. I have a review & all shades swatches here.
I love trying out new foundations and I have been really happy with this new one. I had high hopes because I really am a fan of Ciate makeup and I actually think that many of their products are unsung heroes. The Dewy Spritz is one of my all time favourite setting sprays and I am on my third bottle!

Ciate Extraordinary Foundation Swatches
I have all the shades here to show you.
Porcelain, Linen, Silk, Buff, Peach, Sand, Ochre:
Fawn, Buiscuit, Bamboo, Maple, Toast, Pebble:
Caramel, Pecan, Nutmeg, Mink, Sable, Walnut, Chestnut:
There’s a really good range of shades, although I did notice that there isn’t a super light one, because my match is Porcelain which is the lightest shade.
Before & After
I absolutely love the Porcelain shade on my skin, applied it with my fingers, which I have decided is my favourite way to apply this foundation after trying a couple of different brushes. I love the way it melts into my skin with the warmth of my fingers.
Here’s my before photo:
And here is the after photo with Porcelain applied:
I really love how this looks. It’s glowy, perfecting and basically makes my skin look really flawless. It feels light on the skin, and also really comfortable and hydrating.
I found that is lasted really nicely, with minimal fading or breaking up, and it stayed looking fresh. I am really enjoying wearing it and have kept going back to it this week. It’s a thumbs up from me, and I also think it’s great value at £28 for 50ml. Most of my foundations are only 30ml.
