Let’s address the elephant in the room …. I know I have an unhealthy obsession with foundation. I feel like that needs to be said because after today’s post (and the fact that this is only part 1) will leave you with thoughts that I should probably go to rehab.
I don’t know why it’s one of my favorite categories of makeup. There’s just something about foundation – transforming your complexion and giving you the perfect skin you daily wish for. Of course, many people feel that way but still own less than 5 foundations because they are normal functioning adults. I don’t claim to be in that category.
Anywho, I’m going to chat with you guys about some of the foundations in my collection. This is just part 1 so be on the lookout for part 2 and 3!
Okay, this is going to be a long post, so I am going to cut the chit chat and jump straight in.
With your snacks & beverage in hand, on your marks, get set, let’s go!
This foundation leaves the skin look so smooth, like an instant Instagram filter on the face. It has nice medium coverage foundation, its super hydrating and just sits so nicely on the skin. This foundation always looks good when I wear it and I love it so much I own two shades (One slightly darker) as I had a summer tan at the time. |Review|
This is such a raved about foundation and the raves are definitely true! This stuff gives you flawless coverage and it seems seamless on the skin. It literally doesn’t look detectable on the skin, as soon as you apply it, it’s like your face has been photoshopped. It lasts very well too – though this aspect is debated. There are two groups – the ones who find it crazy long lasting (if you have combination skin) but I feel like those with extreme oiliness won’t find this it lasts well.
I was lucky to be gifted this wonderful foundation. It’s quite a versatile foundation, you can sheer it out or build it up. It lasts well, slightly drying but I just pair it with a hydrating primer to make it work. It lasts very well on the skin as well.
Whenever my skin is doing well I love to treat it to a light base – there is no lighter base than a tinted moisturizer This particular one is very hydrating, melts into the skin and just sits on my face nicely and lasts fairly well. My skin also looks super healthy & radiant when I wear this.
I have mixed feelings about this one. I can’t truly appreciate it because the shade doesn’t match me well so I often have to mix another foundation with it. I will say this is a light, super natural foundation, it’s very hydrating and makes the skin look really glowy. Unfortunately with Innoxa foundations, while they may be lovely they also come with an awful shade range.
Looking glowy is my jam but on those days where sweating is going to be a factor the dewiness of the foundation needs to be toned down. Otherwise – we just look like a sweaty drippy mess! So when I stumble across a foundation that gives you that ‘lit from within’ look I’m over the moon. This foundation has really good coverage, easily a medium! It’s hydrating, blendable and lasts very well. It leaves the skin glowy without making it look wet. Finally a foundation we can wear in any weather.
While I have very good luck with the Maybelline concealers and mascaras. I’m all over the place when it comes to their foundations. While the formula of this foundation is really lovely & I rarely say that about matte foundations. The downside is Maybelline foundations are so pink toned and with that means finding an optimum shade match is impossible. I do mix a bit of a more yellowy foundation into this when I wear it to just try and balance it – not ideal if you just feel like wearing a foundation straight from the bottle.
While Maybelline foundations can be hit or miss for me – Bourjois foundations are my jam! I heard lots of buzz about this particular CC cream & being that Bourjois has already stolen my hearts when it comes to their foundations – I was sold! This is a super hydrating, well lasting base. Of course, it has a very light coverage but it’s just good for those good skin days where you feel like keeping the base simple!
This particular Bourjois base was my first love! The first foundation I ever became obsessed with. I feel like it speaks volumes that I still love it despite the explosion in my foundation collection. It’s hydrating, super easy to apply & blend and my skin always looks awesome when I wear it. You know what they say about first loves. |Review|
This is the perfect no-makeup makeup look foundation. Its super natural – I mean like literally the lightest coverage foundation ever. It just gives your skin a boost but don’t expect it to cover much. This is a good option for those who don’t like or feel like they need foundation as it just gives you a healthy looking complexion. It is a watery foundation so you will be applying it with a dropper applicator.
A new one to the collection. When I first tried this I was blown away by how much I liked it! I’m still shook! It packs a lot of coverage, its super hydrating, it sits on my skin very well, it lasts well and give me a healthy glow. Even the shade matches me so well. I’m digging this foundation majorly & I haven’t been able to put it down.
