Makeup Collection: Foundations

IMG_2636Hey guys! So I’ve decided that my makeup collection is growing and getting to a pretty decent size, so I want to share my collection with you all and review some of the products I own. So today will be all about my foundation collection. I will be reviewing foundations that I use and basically these foundations are all the ones I own other than 2 or 3 I have that do not match my skin tone. So lets just jump right in.

IMG_2622So this foundation is the Nars “All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation”. I have it in the shade “deauville” which is also known as light 4. This foundation is a very watery foundation. This is one of my more expensive foundations, I got it at Sephora for $48. Honestly I have not used this foundation very often on its own, BUT I do mix it quite often with my Sephora brand foundation and I love that combo! It has a nice glow and lasts throughout the day. Also I love the pump it comes with, it is very practical and easy to use.

IMG_2623This is the newest foundation I have added to my collection. This is Tarte’s “Rainforest of the Sea” foundation. I have it in the shade “light neutral”. This is a water foundation! It has a little dropper which works well but I’m not a fan of droppers for foundation, I do prefer pumps. This is another foundation that I typically mix, with either my Sephora foundation or my Loreal “True Match Lumi” foundation. It gives a very nice hydrating look to my face and it is very long lasting. This retails for $39 at Sephora and I believe Ulta carries this as well. Another bright side about this foundation is it does have a small amount of SPF, it has SPF 15 sunscreen in it.

IMG_2624This is my Sephora “10HR wear perfection” foundation. I have it in the shade “light 23”. I typically do not wear this foundation by itself because it is slightly dark on my skin tone BUT it is my favorite foundation to mix with other foundations because this has amazing coverage. I love the coverage and how long this lasts, for only $20 it is totally worth it. It is definitely a staple in my collection.

IMG_2625These are the foundations I own from Loreal. On the left I have “True Match Lumi” which is in the shade “W3 Nude Beige” and also has SPF 20 in it. This retails at Ulta for $12.99. I love this foundation, it gives me a nice glow and also has good build able coverage without looking too cakey. On the right I have “True Match Lumi Cushion”. I got this foundation after hearing Jaclyn Hill rave about how amazing it is, and she was right! I love this foundation, I love the cushion applicator, and even the packaging is cute. The Lumi Cushion I have in shade “W2” and it is the best color match on my skin tone ever. It looks so natural and gives me such a nice healthy looking glow, I love it. It also has an amazing mirror compact inside, and that is always a plus! The only down side is that it does retail for $16.99 which to me is a little much for a drugstore foundation.

IMG_2626 2These are my Make Up For Ever foundations. My absolute favorite powder foundation which is the one on the right, their “Pro Finish” powder foundation. I have very dry skin and this is the one powder that doesn’t make my skin look even worse. It is actually the only powder foundation I own and use because of how much I love it. I did just hit pan on this (sad face). I have this in the shade “117” and it retails for $36. Then on the left I have my “Ultra HD” foundation stick in the shade “118”. It retails at Sephora for $43. I love the coverage of this foundation, its very bendable and a little goes a long way. I also love how easy it is to use, I do a swipe across my forehead, one on my chin, and two on my cheek, then just blend with a beauty blender. It is so easy to just throw in my purse and use. If you have dry skin, this foundation will give you a great glow.

IMG_2627And Finally I have my Maybelline foundations. On the left I have the “Dream Velvet” soft matte foundation in the shade “10”and this retails for $10.99. On the right I have the “Fit Me” dewy & smooth foundation in the shade “110” and it retails for only $7.99. I have only used the Dream Velvet foundation once but I loved it. My cousin actually convinced me to buy this because her skin kept looking flawless for days so I finally had to ask what she was using. Her selfies were turning out amazing! The “Fit Me” foundation I have only worn once for about 2 hours, but it did give me a great dewy look. I am excited to keep trying these foundations, and hopefully they are as good as they seem.

So these are all my foundations currently, and I hope you enjoyed. Let me know in the comments below if there are any other foundations I need to add to this collection. Thanks for reading, and until next time!
