Hey there ridiculous amount of foundation!! I actually like all of these but i have a couple of favourites, okay maybe a few! but i thought i’d give you the low down on them as some are new or highly hyped and i thought hey i’ll throw my two pence worth in the mix too! The numbers aren’t in any order, it’s just how i photographed them. Read on for my top few!
Number six is the rimmel wake me up foundation in ivory. In terms of how well this foundation works to create radiant skin i would say No7 instant radiance is on top. Having said that i wouldn’t not wear this offering as it still looks really nice and does have a nice blendable formula i just think No7 instant radiance does it better.
Number seven is the maxfactor xperience weightless foundation in light ivory. I really like this foundation, i dont think it gets talked about enough! it is so so so so soft to touch on my skin and the colour is really nice and really blends in well for a great looking finish. It has kind of a dewy matte finish so looks really flattering and it was randomly on offer in tescos so i got it for £3.99 win!
Number eight is the revlon nearly naked foundation in shell. I also have this in vanilla as i find either shade actually suits my skin as it blends in so well and looks so so natural. It’s perfect for day time and makes my skin feel so soft. It’s definitely rivaling my love for bourjois happy light and No7 instant radiance. I even converted my sister from rimmel so using this stuff as it looks so lovely and natural. Also the matching powder is really good – gives great coverage and feels really soft too. I’ve seen a lot of people moan about there not being a pump but i actually find it easier without as i work from my hand anyways.
Number nine is the L’Oréal nude magique eau de teint in porcelain. I really like this stuff and i think because of the formula being so runny it gets a bad name but for it that’s why it’s so good. It really does feel weightless and looks so natural and lovely on my skin. Again the matching powder for this is just as soft and lovely. It really is lighter than water yano try it out!!
Number ten is the garnier bb cream for oily skin. This was my savior during the summer and it was so light and let my skin breathe! i still wear it during the winter months when i’m having one of my cba days but still want a little coverage! It is the best bb cream I’ve tried and I’ve tried a few from seventeen, botanics and a few others i cant remember! and this came out top!
In conclusion my top three that really stand out are the Bourjois Happy light, Revlon nearly naked and No7 Instant radiance and as a bonus the Seventeen stay time foundation for a night out!
There are a few more foundations that i own but i haven’t included pictures because i don’t rate them so much and i’m not one for brand bashing but i’ll tell you what they are and just a brief explanation as to why i don’t love them.
First up is the revlon photoready foundation in vanilla. I just find it searches out my dry bits of skin and makes it look 1000x worse than it is – for me it just doesn’t like my skin!
Then we have the maybelline dream matte mousse. I used to use this for years and years and i’m just kind of over the whole mousse thing and again just find it doesn’t blend so well now I’ve experimented so much more
And finally we have the No7 beautifully matte mousse. The only reason this is on the ‘bad’ list is because they don’t have it in calico and i thought i’d try it in ivory but it’s a really dirty orange shade which does not look attractive AT ALL but the formula is nice, soft and smooth so if they have it in your shade go for it! i’m just saying trust in the colour match!
I’ve learn’t something from this post! Take photos in the day as night light is bloody awful! sorry guys! you think i’d realise this being a photography student but i have insomnia!! which reminds me i’m thinking of doing a post on how i cope with insomnia is anyone’s interested.
