How are you doing? Today I thought I would begin kind of a series, showing you bits and pieces of my make-up collection. And what best to begin this series with than foundations?! That is precisely what I am sharing with you today: the foundations I own and my thoughts on them. Hope you find this post helpful 🙂
These are my foundations:
Oil-Free Foundation by Make Up Factory
This is the second foundation I ever tried and I love it! It is quite difficult to find but it is worth it. It keeps me matte all day and has a light finish, it is not heavy at all. Overall, I believe this is a great foundation for those of you (well, of us) with combination/oily skin!
Accord Perfect (True Match) by L’Oréal
I am sure you have all heard about this foundation: True Match is quite a celebrity amongst “drugstore” foundations and I completely understand why! This is the first foundation I ever purchased and I loved it for a couple of years. Then I tried the one by Make Up Factory and kind of forgot all about this one. I repurchased it last year and I thought it was okay. It did not leave me matte all day but I think the reason for that was that my skin was overproducing oil due to the lack of moisture – I talked about this earlier this week. I will definitely try to use it again when my skin is back to normal 🙂
Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow by Benefit
I am not a fan of this foundation at all. But, again, I believe the problem lays with my skin and not the foundation. I will definitely be giving it another chance once my skin is better! It is oil-free, you can build the coverage from light to medium and it is supposed to leave your skin looking luminous and healthy!
Studio Fix Fluid by MAC
This is my favourite foundation ever! I honestly cannot tell you enough positive things about it…
– Matte finish;
– Buildable coverage from medium to full;
– Blends like a dream;
– Long-wearing (I have used it for 14 hours straight and it looked amazing all day long!);
– Minimizes the appearance of pores and imperfections;
– Sweat and humidity resistant (it survives 40ºC in Portugal, which is about 104ºF);
– Has SPF 15;
– Does not break me out!
See? What’s not to love? 🙂
What about you guys? Tell me all about your favourite foundations! Have you ever tried any of these?
