You absolutely wouldn’t be the only woman right now whose skin is - shall we say, a tad on the drab side? As winter blahs and central heating take their toll, complexions can really get a case of the doldrums.

This is a quick fix - from a range that we wish more women of a certain age regarded as a go-to. Amidst some scare-the-horses, stop-the-traffic shades you’ll find this - an under-make-up ‘veil’ which instantly makes skin look candlelit from within.

We really love the texture of this: a delicious, moisture-boosting gel that melts into skin. And when it’s done melting and plumping, hey, presto! Light-reflecting particles make even the weariest skin look wide-awake. Make-up that you apply over the top looks just glowing gorgeous.

There are active skin-caring ingredients - our old chum hylauronic acid, gardenia florida fruit extract, vitamin C and something called haematococcus pluvais extract, all known to boost radiance and brightness.

But it’s the faster-than-a-speeding bullet instant boost to a dull face that has us raving here. Beyond fabulous, we’re calling it.
