You might think that with a model’s income, telly presenter husband and access to luxury brands, Pippa O’Connor would have seriously highfalutin’ taste when it comes to cosmetics. Not hardly: turns out, she likes a bit of a bargain just like the rest of us, and has recently fallen hard for L’Oreal Paris’ super-affordable True Match Foundation.
She’s in good company: Dita Von Teese is a fan as well, but relax, that’s not how Pippa came across the base. Make-up artist Kate McCormack gave her the downlow. “I asked Kate what foundation should I try next,” she wrote on her blog, Pippa.ie. Kate’s recommendation was for this €14.99 beauty, so Pippa picked it up in Rose Vanille, which she reckons is a good match for her porcelain complexion.
So what’s so ace about this, then? Likening it to the much pricer Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, she said, “it’s definitely the silkiest, lightest feeling foundation I’ve ever used. It has great staying power too. I didn’t feel like I needed to top it up during the day.” Hey, sounds pretty damn good to us. Will you check it out?
