June 19, 2014: favorite foundations!

Recommended Posts

My all time favorite foundation is actually my Eve Pearl HD Dual Foundation! It's everything! I typically like a full coverage foundation and that way I can thin it out if I need to but yeah.  :D

Drugstore: Flower Cosmetics foundation stick in SF1. It is both very light and yellow based, a great find! Most drugstore foundations put pink base in the lightest shades.

 

Mid-High end:  Dr Jart's Premium BB Cream, Skin79 The Oriental Gold BB Cream, MAC StudioFix Powder+Foundation NC15, UD Tinted Moisturizer w/SPF 20 in "Halo" disconinued but I bought a ton when they went on clearance.

I have to admit, I fell for the hype. Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua is my fave. I am wearing it today, the first time in a while, and I had forgotten just what a beautiful finish it was. :wub:

I've heard a few beauty bloggers/professionals recommend it, I'm curious about it but need to use up what I currently have before trying any new ones!!

I tried YSL BB or CC cream at Sephora, it smells terrible.

 

My current fave is Koh Gen Do both the Aqua foundation and the Moisture foundation, both are really nice. Aqua for summer and Moisture for winter.. but the ones I have are the old formula, they came out with new formulas recently, I have not tried them.

 

Rouge Bunny Rouge also has a nice foundation and tinted moisturizer that I like a lot.

BareMinerals foundation in Fairly Light!  I've been wearing it exclusively for the last 8 years.  It is the only thing that I have found that works well with my eczema & rosacea.

Hi everyone!

 

How do you find the right foundation shade at a drug store?

Can you return the product after you tried it out?

 

Thanks!!

In 2012 and 2013, I spent a pretty penny in search of a HG foundation and the majority were department store brands such as Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clinique, MAC, MUFE, Benefit to name a few; well flash forward to early 2014 and two of my all time favorite foundations are BH Cosmetics and Covergirl 3 in 1 foundation. Honestly, I adore them and haven't touched my other foundations in months. Their prices are terrific and the finish is flawless.

Thanks!!

Most drugstores these days will let you return opened product, especially if you have the receipt. I know CVS and Walgreens will for sure, Target will, I assume Walmart will since they return anything. I don't know about Rite-Aid since that chain isn't in my area.

 

Going to edit that Kmart, at least the one near me, is super tight on returns, so I probably wouldn't go to them for a foundation I wasn't sure I would like or not.

My favorite foundation is EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation. It is perfect for my olive skin tone and has great coverage. I buy it from lookfantastic.com which is a company from the UK. They have free shipping worldwide and the foundation is only $17.85 for 30 mL (equivalent to 1 fl oz).

The light, gel-like texture of this foundation leaves a stunning, flawless finish to the skin. It blends easily and can be built up to a more full coverage if you desire. The foundation uses wild rose extracts to hydrate the skin and look is looking and feeling great. The only bad thing is the shade range. There are 8 shades and seem to be geared toward those with pink undertones which means those of you with yellow undertones probably won’t find a color that will work for you. This will work best for more mature skin or those of you with dry or combination skin.

I find Korean BB creams are better then even the high end foundations in the west.

 

At the moment I'm using Lioele - Beyond the Solution BB cream which is AMAZING!

I'm loving Mary Kay's CC Cream for a quick everyday foundation and their loose mineral powder for when I go out. <3

I wear LA Minerals NoHoGlo or their Valley Girl, depending on what finish I'm aiming for . Glo is glowier! LoL

The valley girl really helps when my skin is acting up. And their concealer stays put to cover my spots.

Definitely my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation for a lightweight, good coverage foundation :)

But for a cheaper alternative, I would have to say Revlon's Colorstay Whipped and Maybelline's Fit Me Foundations! So affordable, yet long-lasting, full coverage, true to color foundations! So awesome  ^_^

Hello!

Drugstore wise I have two current favourites being:

 

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum- This foundation is gorgeous, it leaves your skin looking SO healthy with a satin finish and also has a great coverage and staying power.

 

Maybeliine Fit Me- I bought this a couple of days ago and i'm already IN LOVE. I have never owned a foundation that makes my skin look so dewy, it's a beautiful foundation for a great price and the colour match is amazing.

 

For high end it has to be MAC Studio Fix Fluid, I don't even know if I can put into words how gorgeous it is. Such a flawless coverage and it blends amazingly a tiny bit goes a long way so you definitely get your moneys worth. Even the smell of it, I mean usually foundation smells like foundation to me but whenever I smell it I feel so glamorous as crazy as that seems haha!

Jamie.

Hey girls!

Love this topic already, i think a good foundation will really help to make the rest of your make up stand out!

When i try a smokey eye, i really need a good covering foundation to erase all the red spots and imperfections on my face, so i use L'Oréal's Infallibe 24H Stay Fresh Foundation in the shade 150 (Radiant Beige). I fake tan, so this foundation matches the 'yellowness" in my fake tan. Alot of drugstore foundations have a pink undertone, so that will never match the rest of my body. The infallible foundations have a yellow undertone, so thats a plus!

Beside that one, i love love love the Maybelline Fit Me! Luminous+Smooth foundation in the shade 120 Classic Ivory when im less tanned and looking for less coverage. Ofcourse this foundation is buildable, but not straight full-coverage as the L'Oreal Infallibe. Both of these foundations are really long wearing!

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
