Liquid - Makeup Revolution - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation

Me: NC5-10
My shade: F1

Whenever a new product is super-hyped on YouTube, I'm a little leery. "Did they buy this product themselves?" is a relevant question & always my very first one. Well, my curiosity got the better of me, so I picked up shades F1 at Ulta on release day.

FINISH: Smoooooth. Satin. I wouldn't call this completely matte. I keep …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

Let's get the negative out of the way first: L'Oréal has quietly reformulated this foundation. I checked, and this reformulation has occurred straight across the shade board. Sure, as ever the ingredients are listed on the bottles themselves - so legally, they are covered. But as of October 2018, still no reflection of this complete ingredient revamp on L'Oréal's own …Read more

Longtime repeat purchaser here. Oh, how I love this night cream & it's the only one I use. If you can imagine an emolient eye cream packaged as a night cream that is also cheap enough to extend down to your neck & chest to boot, this is it.

No retinoids, no glycolic acid - perfect if you're someone who likes those products strong & separate & need for this …

If you want a power-player foundation but Kat Von D Lock It & Milani Conceal + Perfect were a tad too thick/cakey for you, you've got to try this one next.

Super Stay is not as traceless as L'Oréal Infallible Pro Matte - I actually like the latter's poreless finish better - but Super Stay has my shade. I go where I'm fed!

Love the pump: tapping it …

Sunscreen - MyChelle - Sun Shield Liquid Tint spf50

Apr/29/2018

Lightest shade Nude is 5-6 shades too deep & pink for me ... and yet, here I am giving this sunscreen a perfect score. Sun Shield Liquid Tint is a potential holy grail product.

Potential.

It's got SPF 50, 16.1% zinc, no silicones, a matte, traceless finish, & evens out the complexion sans heavy coverage. FYI: 6 pumps yield the necessary quarter-teaspoon minimum …

Shade: LF2
Me: About an NC5-10.

If you have porcelain skin & need a drugstore foundation with yellow undertones, please give this foundation a shot.

It doesn't come without its limitations, though.

Coverage is decent. Medium for sure - which is the claim. I'd call it Girl Next Door coverage. The formulation kind of reminds me of the …

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

This foundation was actually a decent match for me. I liked the dropper & the finish looked nice. But I couldn't continue using it because of the breakouts it caused me that ceased immediately returning it. Turns out this foundation contains talc, which is highly comedogenic for some. Talc is something commonly found in powders, with less prevalence in liquid foundations.

Just repurchased my third bottle of this. If you have baby-fine hair like me, don't write this one off because of the name: it won't flatten your hair. In fact, this gets my hair super-clean & full of body the days I use it. The smell I can take it leave - I just like the performance.

Jul/26/2016

Should be called Worse Skin Foundation - I returned it within 2 hours of application. It looked cakey in certain spots, & those spots itched all day. Oh, and boy was I shiny. I even skipped my last few errands of the day so I could go home & wash it off.

I gave this foundation 2 lippies because the packaging is great - love the pump - and GOOD on Maybelline for not making the …

Stick - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation

Nov/18/2015

Oh, how I wanted to love this. The match was super-close, and how convenient is a stick? But I returned it the day I applied it. It was cakey & obvious on me - so cakey, in fact, I wanted to wash my face & start over, but couldn't be bothered. Everything from my Urban Decay Naked Skin to my $7 Cover Girl Ready Set Gorgeous foundation performs far better than this.

Has …
