I have tried using this foundation a few times to give it the 'benefit of doubt' I just don't get the fuss about it! It's like coloured water!! Absolutely awful. The only positive I have about it is the amount you get for your money, which is perfect for someone who actually likes it..
This is an absolutely gorgeous colour, I love the way it goes on and really suits my pale skin. It is a bit expensive but worth the money. For MUAs with Mac Pro an illamasqua discount I'd recommend illamasquas blusher in lover and highlighting with Mac pigment in melon.. Quite similar! All round one if the best blushers out there.. Absolutely hate Nars packaging though!
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

Best foundation for highlighting and contouring! Looks beautiful, packaging is great and colours are spot on.. Not too yellow and not too pink! Finally!! I wouldn't use this as a daytime make up I use this specifically for contouring.. Only downside is that it's not available in the UK :( and I'm running low!
One of my favourite foundations! I have gone through a lot of shades to get my perfect match as there's so many.. Some too pink some too yellow but finally 1n2 seems to be the one! This foundation has to be the best for coverage and staying power it just doesn't come off!! I love it! The only negatives I have for this foundation is the packaging a little pump would go well, the next one is the fact that it doesn't look great on photos due to the SPF in it, this is the main reason I won't use it on brides :( shame as its so long lasting. I do love this product though it'll always be a classic in my collection.
Liquid -Bobbi Brown - Luminous Moisturizing Foundation

Absolutely awful foundation! After 9 years as a MUA the only brand I have never tried is Bobbi brown.. Until yesterday! The make up assistant sat me down and applied this foundation and matched skin to 'warm beige' After me telling him I like a full coverage foundation as I suffer from rosacea he gave me this! It actually didn't look too bad at the counter and he sold me it as it was so moisturising for my skin. 5 minutes later I got to my car and was shocked as I looked in the mirror I was glowing!! I took the foundation out of the packaging to discover the colour was around a mac nc30... Considering I'm an nc15/20 that is far too dark for me!! Undeterred I thought I shall give the foundation a go in the morning to see how it settles on my skin. So after applying it again, myself... I've come to the conclusion that this is possibly the worst foundation I have EVER used, it does not cover my rosacea it makes my skin look really oily and the overall look is just awful.. The colour mis match might have played a part in this but it was still oily on my skin not dewy! Don't waste your money unless your skin is perfect!!
