2015-12-06 20.18.35-8

Welcome back to everyone and to the new readers welcome !! I’m glad you all are loyal readers. I can’t believe we are almost at 600 views I feel very accomplished and blessed. So for todays post I will be sharing with you all my top 5 favorite foundations. For those of who have followed me from first blog then you know I already have done this. But since then I have found some new foundations  that have really stepped up in the game and I truly love them all. I will link down below where you can purchase them from, so lets just get into it shall we.

First on the list has to be one of the most talked about drugstore foundations this past year. None other than the L`oreal  True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. When this came out literally everyone was talking about. There were some good and bad reviews out there but I knew I had to try it for myself. A lot of people weren’t too fond of the price because it does retail for $16 but I honestly don’t think that it’s bad. I remember my Revlon whipped foundation was $15 so a dollar more isn’t anything. Plus most of L`oreal products are up there in the price. Other than that the shade range was ok not as much as their other foundations. My first impression of course was the packaging. The rose gold color was cute and plus it was a cushion! I have never owned a foundation like that so it intrigued me even more. I have mine in the shade c8 Cocoa. At first when I applied it the foundation looked really dark on my first but once I was done blending it out the color was like a perfect match. I love how it gives you a luminous glow and it blends out very well. I prefer to use this with a beauty blender because I want it to give me that glowing affect. It last for a reasonable amount of time (5-8 hours) for me and I really enjoy using it. If you have dry skin this is a like a life saver for you. For the oily girls I know many still use it just use like a bomb primer with it so you won’t look to greasy. Overall I really love this foundation.

My next foundation is one that I use for those everyday looks. The Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation. Maybelline really out did themselves with this foundation. I really love this one so much. It just looks so natural on me and overtime I wear this people always ask what foundation am I wearing and when I reply Maybelline they are shocked. This is the perfect foundation for an everyday wear. It’s not heavy on the skin and it blends out like a dream. I can either apply this with my beauty blender or brush and both of the outcomes are amazing. They have a great shade range to choose from so everyone can find their shade without a problem. I have mine in the shade 95 Coconut. Once it settles into my skin the color is awesome. Very great foundation !

Next up is of course the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (Matte and Poreless) I know all of you have heard of this and also tried it out. Maybelline has some great foundations no one can deny that. I really like this foundation for when my skin is acting all crazy and decides to be oily all of a sudden. This was also great for an everyday wear I used to wear this one all the time for work because it worked well during the hot weather. Works well with both a sponge or brush and of course blends out very well. I believe this is like the cheapest foundation I have ever bought so of course that is a plus as well. I recommend this foundations is best to wear in the summer because it keeps you matte all day. You don’t even have to set it with a lot of powder because once it dries your matte. But I would just apply a light layer of powder to make sure that it does last for a reasonable amount of time if you will be out all day. I have mine in the shade 355 coconut.

Fourth on the list is my love the Ex1 Inviswear Foundation. I found this love from Beauty Vlogger Amanda Ensing . She used to swear  by this foundation so I had to get my hands on it. When I did was very impressed on how it turned out. I would only wear this when I wanted my skin to be like extra flawless and for special occasions because it photographed so well. Of course my favorite way to apply this was with a beauty blender. I didn’t really like the way it looked when I did use a brush. But overall I can say this is a great foundation and I have not had any problems with it. My skin looked great and it covered up acne and scars very well. I have mine in the shade F500.

My last favorite foundation is another one by Maybelline. I just cannot help it I love their foundations so much. The Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation is amazing. It really is that matte foundation that hydrates. My face doesn’t look super stiff or dry with this on. You can either use this with a sponge or brush and you will always get a flawless finish. It is great to have something like this because many matte foundations can be very drying on the skin and this is not that. The finish of this foundation is like velvet and it is very smooth and hydrating. So you may look matte but there is some moisture in there. I have been using this a lot as well and I cannot get enough of it. If you have seen the mix reviews on this i say disregard those and try it out for yourself. Everyone is different and you never know this may turn to be one of your holy grail foundations. I have mine in the shade 95 coconut.
