foundation collection

Foundations always been something that I loved to test. I went through so many, when I don't like it I will normally give it to my mum or friend. In most foundations I'm always the lightest shade. In winter I like medium coverage foundations and in summer I normally go for light coverage or I don't wear it at all.

Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1N1 ECRU:  This is medium coverage foundation, but for me it almost full coverage. If I wear it all over my face, I find it a bit cakey. So I normally apply it only to my cheeks, so the pinky cheeks would be covered. I also bought a MAC pump, so I won't waste lot of the product. Overall it's very good foundation. 

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B10: Water based foundation, I must say it's amazing for summer, and when my skin is feeling a bit dry.  The coverage is light, but you can build it up. This foundation also smells really nice. 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in NC15: The worst expensive foundation I ever tried! After 15min it will turn orange on me. Applying is very difficult. The consistency is very thick. It also breaks me out.

MAC Pro Longwear in NC15: This is pretty good foundation from MAC. It's medium coverage and long lasting. I love to mix this with Revlon Photoready.

Revlon Photoready 002 Vanilla: My favourite foundation of all time! Light coverage, it does contain  some shimmer, but I don't mind it. What I love this foundation mostly for is the colour match.

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid in Ivory: I have no idea why did I love this foundation, the lightest colour is still to dark for me. This is my third bottle. I like the finish, and the way you apply it, but I still not sure why did I buy it so many times. 



  1. Great post! I've seen a lot of people do foundation posts this week! Always helpful to see :) xo

  2. For the Maybelline Dream Satin one you should get a white foundation to mix in to make it a bit lighter if you love the finish! Lisa Eldridge did a really good video a few days ago recommending some. x

    1. I was actually thinking about that, then I would be able to use more foundations. Thank you. x

  3. Great post, Love the sound of the mac pro longwear.

  4. Hey, I'm glad I stopped by to read this as the Revlon Photoready foundation has had me intrigued. I already use the Photoready concealer which I really quite liked, so I'm curious about the foundation.

    Might have to give it a go once my current one is nearly gone :D

  5. I hear you about MAC Mineralize Skinfinish. For ages I tried to get it to work for me but it turned so orange, and sparkly, and I broke out really badly. As well as that I feel like it sits really heavily on top of my skin!
    I've since moved on to Lancome Teint Miracle which I love!

  7. I use Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid as my day foundation. It gives a gorgeous cover, but I never feel it last that well.
    My Night one is Mac Studio Fix. If you like a strong coverage for a night out I would definitely recommend it, as it always looks amazing in photos.
    Grate post!
