I’m currently writing this post from Mallorca! Currently, I’m waiting for my family to get ready so I decided to jump straight into a blog post!
In this post I’m doing a foundation collection and I’ll be ranking my foundations out of ten to give you all the best idea of how good they are. I have oily skin so what works amazing for me, may not be as good for you. So, with that in mind, I’ll begin!
Revolution- conceal and define foundation
I do really like this foundation. It’s an affordable, high quality formula and the coverage is very competitive with higher end foundations while being lightweight and staying relatively matte. My only complaint about this foundation however is it’s wearability, it stays in tact yet the coverage considerably decreases with prolonged wear. I generally reach for this when I have an event and I’m only wearing the foundation for the night. I probably wouldn’t grab this for an everyday wear foundation, simply due to the lasting power. It may be my go-to if my skin is looking good and I wouldn’t mind the slight loss of coverage
Estée Lauder Double Wear
So, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with this foundation, at first, I hated it. It doesn’t smell too good and it looked very cakey upon application. The second time wearing it though, after dermaplaning at home, was amazing! If you have a smooth base to apply this too then it’s worth the hype. Having peach fuzz however, doesn’t work, for me anyway. It lasts very well as it’s quite heavy and the coverage is as insane as everyone claims. I definitely wouldn’t wear this everyday as it’s not lightweight in the slightest but I love it for occasions, especially ones that last all day and/or night. The smell isn’t good but once it’s applied, this does wear off so you can look past it.
Estée Lauder Double wear light
Now, I’ve raved about this one enough now, and you can read about it on my review. It’s very lightweight but provides good coverage. The natural finish is what bumps this one right up there and staying matte also earns it some extra brownie points! If you don’t like foundations that feel like a mask but you need good coverage then this is the one for you! I’ve recently finished mine but I’ll definitely be repurchasing! If you also love golden hour selfies but want your skin to look like skin, then this is for you!
Too Faced Born this Way
Now this is surprising for some but I like this foundation as it actually works well with my oily skin! Many dry skinned people claim this as their holy grail but I also really like it. It obviously doesn’t stay as matte as others but it doesn’t make me a grease ball! It’s very good for everyday wear as it’s comfortable on the skin and provides full yet natural coverage. I also really like the frosted bottle as it gives it the high-end vibes that you’re paying for. Out of all the foundations in this post, this definitely has the cutest packaging.
Clinique Even Better Skin
I actually really like this foundation but I definitely don’t reach for it as much as I should. It’s really good for everyday wear but mostly it gets hidden in the shadows. It has a really nice finish and stays relatively matte. It’s definitely not my favourite but I would definitely wear it on a daily basis if I had the money for it. As it’s name suggests, it does look like your skin but even better. I also like that it has SPF in it too because even though my daily moisturiser has it, it doesn’t hurt to have even more to prevent early ageing!
L’Oréal Infallible Total Coverage – the best foundation for oily skin!
This beats Mac studio fix hands down. The coverage is insane and it’s not as heavy as it has a mousse type of formula which sits well on the skin. It keeps me matte despite that not being it’s main concern and it smooths my skin making it look completely flawless. The price tag is what makes it all the more appealing as it’s a drugstore foundation! I haven’t found another from the drugstore that delivers quite as hard as this one! If you need a high-coverage foundation for events then I highly recommend this one. It’s also so blendable, I’ve never had streaks when wearing this foundation.
Kiko Milano Soft Focus Powder Foundation
I don’t use this as a foundation but as a setting powder, it’s amazing. It adds extra coverage and due to its initial cause, it makes my base last all day and helps me stay matte. I’m not sure if they still sell this but if they don’t then other powders will struggle to compete. The sponge they provide for application doesn’t get used by me as I prefer to use a brush but I’m sure the sponge does work quite well as it seems to be of good quality. Due to it not being as good a foundation, I’ve scored it slightly lower.
Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation
I used to use this foundation everyday at school until I went bare faced and it’s really good for natural wear. It provides medium coverage and it stays fairly matte. The longevity on this is also good which is why I used to frequently grab it for school. Comfort serum is also added into this to make it comfortable and doesn’t make you feel like you’re wearing a mask. I’d say this is a good drugstore everyday foundation.
Fenty pro filtr
I have a review of this famous Fenty foundation and it’s amazing! Very matte and very full coverage. It can make sure skin look a little dry but a spritz of water should fix this. The bottle is sleek and one pump covers your whole face with amazing coverage. This will last you a while and is perfect for nights out!
Wet n wild photo focus
With the nyx shine killer primer this is an unbeatable foundation. Without, it’s still great, but not necessarily the best. This is one I’d reach for everyday because it’s very inexpensive and has very good coverage. It also looks very good in photos as the name would suggest. If you’re looking for a budget foundation. I’d hands-down recommend this!
