Foundation Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I just went out and bought Clinique's Beyond Perfecting 2 in 1 foundation and concealer, and while I like how it feels on my face, and the color is a great match, I'm not really liking the finish. It says it's a natural-matte finish, and it's more on the dewy side IMO...and I like a really matte finish.

 

I want something that's a true matte finish, moderate to full coverage, feels light on the skin and won't accentuate my dry spots too much. Something that's long lasting would be preferable as well since I'm usually out of the house for about 10-12 hours, and most of that time is spent working so I can't really do touch ups.

 

I'm going to give the Clinique a fair shot -- today is only my second day wearing it...but just in case -- suggestions please!

I used to wear MAC Studiofix which has matte coverage and it lasts well. I found that I really like the Dior powder foundation. It lasts pretty well and is more of full coverage and the finish is matte. It's pricey though but lasts a long time. A cheaper option is Lancome powder foundation. They have the fragrance free option. The finish is also matte. I didn't care for the scented version.

I'll look into that.

 

My HG foundation is Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H, but the price is kind of deterring right now since I didn't have a job for awhile, just started my new one, and the holidays are coming up...so something cheaper, but not drugstore would be ideal.

NARS is pretty awesome-- give you that full coverage with out a wet/ greasy look. I tried Clique and was not impressed with the results at all. My skin was super oily the entire day. NARS will give you a light feel and a matte coverage, def give it a try!

I gave up on Clinique and got Estee Lauder samples. I got samples of both the Double Wear Stay In Place and the Double Wear Maximum Cover, and what I did was put one on one side of my face and one on the other (while I was at home, not running out and about) and tested them out that way, and I actually liked the Maximum Cover better. It felt lighter on my face, [obviously] had more coverage, and looked more natural, plus it has a more matte finish.

 

Then today I wore it to work to really test it, and now, 11 hours later, it's still flawless! So when I got out of work, I checked to see how it held up, and it looked great and felt great, so I said what the hell, I'm going to bite the bullet and get this one! Bonton didn't have it in stock so it's being shipped to my house, but I wanted to buy it there not Macy's because the beauty advisor there was so much nicer and more helpful than the one at Macy's. So even though I could have walked out of the store with the product in my hands at Macy's, I took my business to Bonton so the person I like could get the commission.

Hourglass foundations all the way! I use the skin tint and it's a cream foundation with a satin finish and I like the versatility. Can be sheered out to a dewy finish with a damp beauty blender but can be set with a matte powder for a flawless matte finish.

I like the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless, the Rimmel London Stay Matte Mousse foundation, and Covergirl's Ready Set Gorgeous. The Rimmel is very matte and, the Maybelline is my favorite right now, and the Covergirl would be another favorite but the lightest shade is slightly still dark on me. They both last very well throughout the day. I work in retail as a manager and do just about every job you can think of, including pushing carts, and my makeup lasts all day with these three. Plus, they're inexpensive! I apply with a BeautyBlender and set with NYC loose setting powder.

Thanks for the suggestions :) I may check them out sometime, but right now I love my Estee Lauder Double Wear Max Cover. Also, I doubt if Rimmel comes in a shade dark enough for me. It's not a very colored friendly brand :(

Ive always been a huge fan of Rimmel. Just recently started loving Loreal true match. They have the largest shade selection atleast in drug store.

I have the Urban Decay Naked foundation. It's natural-looking and has a "demi-matte" (that's what the description says) finish. I thought it was actually a little too matte for my taste so I bought the No Foundation Foundation and I like that one better because it's sheer and very subtle. The UD foundation is also a little on the expensive side, but it seems to get primarily positive reviews.

I have pretty combo skin with an oily t-zone and oily eye lids as well as an acne-prone chin/cheek area which are pretty dry. It works very well with my skin and it doesn't break me out in my problem areas. If oil bothers you a ton, you can always blot or powder the oily areas a little more but I'm not particularly worried about doing so to my nose (oiliest part) because I do wear glasses so it rubs my foundation regardless of what I do.

Can anyone here suggest me if I should go for Mufe HD or Ultra HD foundation? I have read this review: 

about HD Foundation here: (link removed) and it says that this foundation does not last longer than 4 hours. Please suggest if I go for HD or Ultra HD.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
