I decided it was about time to do a long overdue foundation declutter for reasons being that I genuinely have far too many & it is pointless hoarding them for the sake of it & also because they are coming to the end of their best & should really go.
Is there anyone else who finds it difficult to not give in to the latest foundation & then end up with so many?! I still have a lot in my collection but I don’t have a good enough reason at the moment to really cull them whereas these have justified reasons.
The YSL Ink Fusion foundation was definitely one of those YouTube made me buy type products, I got caught up with the hype when it came out & had to have it for the simple fact that I didn’t want to feel like I was missing out. I can honestly say that I have only used this 3 times which is so incredibly disappointing considering how much it costs I feel sick thinking about it.
For the formula just wasn’t right for my combination skin type, I really wasn’t a fan of the the fluid like feel on the skin to me it felt a little slimy & I found it incredibly hard to blend without getting a streaky affect on my skin. The applicator is just ridiculous in my opinion a plastic stick, I don’t feel I over applied it but with a brush particularly a buffing brush this just does not work.
Does anyone else have opinions on this because I am wondering if this worked for others & what application techniques were used?
I love the Tarte 12 hour foundation so you must be wondering why I am getting rid of it? So I basically chose the wrong shade, I thought light sand would be just right for me but as it turns out it is way too dark. The only time I would be able to wear this is with a slight tan in the summer but to be honest it is so full coverage which by the way is amazing I just cannot wear heavy foundations when it is hot. I have since purchased my correct shade fair sand which works so much better for me so I am looking forward to using the foundation again this Autumn / Winter.
I remember when I first started using the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation it always gave great coverage & lasted all day for me which was amazing as I do tend to have an issue with foundations lasting all day. The coverage is definitely medium & has a lovely finish, this is a foundation I would recommend. I am letting this one go because it is past its best but I did find the last couple of times I used it it was coming off different on my skin.
I suddenly found it was sinking into my pores around my nose which it hadn’t done before but I guess I could have changed my skincare products since I first used it but I cannot remember to be honest. I will definitely purchase this again at some point in the future when I have got through some other foundations as I genuinely feel this is a good drugstore product.
Boy this was an expensive mistake to make! Online makeup shopping is really a risk especially when it comes to foundations in fact I would now advise against it unless you are topping up on something that already works for you. I think you can guess by now I purchased the wrong Dior Airflash shade which was gutting. Another foundation for me that could only be used in the summer if I had a good tan. The finish on the foundation is beautiful I would say a satin finish with a dewy glow that looks healthy lit from within. I did use it as much as possible, my favourite method was spraying it onto a buffing brush & working it in. I did try spraying it directly on my face the first two times then going in with a brush but it wasn’t the easiest option & it was also too easy to get too much product on your face.
I have since repurchased this in my correct shade so I look forward to be able to use it knowing it matches my neck!
This is a huge thumbs up foundation for me the Maybelline Dream Satin, I love seeing the advert every time it comes on TV. The formula is so smooth to apply it literally glides onto the skin & blends in beautifully. I have never had an issue of it settling into pores & I find it’s one of few foundations that last on me.
The finish truly is satin it is beautiful there is definitely a lit from within look to it. I was planning on finishing the product a year ago but you sidetracked with other foundations so this is only going out purely because it is past its best but I am really looking forward to repurchasing this again, I love this so much I have it in my pro makeup kit for when I do makeovers or makeup lessons.
Marc Jacobs what was I thinking, £60 completely & utterly wasted. I initially purchased Ivory light which was surprisingly too light for me & it is smelt a bit funny I can only say it makes me think of chemicals when I smell it. I decided that I really wanted to have a Marc Jacobs foundation so I went on to purchase the Ivory Medium & although the odd smell wasn’t present with this new one the application of the foundation is pretty hideous. There’s something about it where it doesn’t blend or sit on your skin well, I don’t know what is up with the formula but apparently gel is not for me. I kept hold of these due to the cost of them & I was going to try the Ivory Medium again but I am really feeling like I am not going to get on with it so I am just going to cut my loses & say goodbye.
I would love to hear others opinions on this foundation?
I hope you liked the post guys, much love xx
