My l'il collection!
I am, like alot of girls on a constant quest for the perfect skin, so when a new foundation pops onto the scene gaining rave reviews, Im there at that counter as soon as funds will allow, hoping that this will be the one to do it all, even skin tone, lift, illuminate,turn me into Kim Kardashian, bring about world peace (you never know!!)
My top 3 foundations
I cant really put these in order as being the fickle madam that I am I find myself using them on a rotational basis depending on my mood,time allowance and all that shiz!
1. MAC-Face and body.
Out of the 3 this is the one that I have used the longest. I love its light formulation that allows your natural skin to breathe, alongside the way it can be built to attain a good medium coverage if desired.And the huge 120ml bottle lasts for an age!!
2. NARS-Sheer glow
A HG for many for good reason,sheer glow gives fantastic buildable coverage which is long lasting, and a flawless finish to boot. My Other thoughts on sheer glow here.
3. Chanel-Teint innocence compact foundation
I love this for when im in a rush, it applies beautifully with the supplied sponge to a light medium coverage, and is easy to carry around for touch ups throughout the day.It also feels really moisturising for a cream to powder formula and doesn't cake. I think I might have relied on this too much for touch ups though as I actually hit pan in about 3 weeks!!! My Review here.
Of course I have had some disasters in the past...
My least favourite foundation.
Estee Lauder Double wear
This is a HG foundation for alot of girls, and for good reason, It gives an incredible flawless long lasting finish.
But I wasn't so lucky, for me I found it way to heavy (I like a medium-full coverage) It felt like I was wearing a concrete mask when I wore it. The worst part of this foundation was that wherever I applied concealer, and blusher it created patches on my face as if these products had pulled the foundation off, I ended up walking around town once looking in all seriousness like I had a skin disorder, I had to hot foot it to the Chanel counter to have a fresh base applied ha! I would however love to try out Double wear light as like I said the double wear finish is beautiful on the girls who get on with it.
Anyway I could ramble about foundation all day long, so ill leave it at that for now,however I have a few other's on my wish list that I will be picking up in the not too distant future, so I will be sure to let you lovelies know my thoughts.
Which make-up item couldn't you live without?
