We all have that one foundation that we love and trust. Are you one to stick with your favorite or do you like to switch it up a little? My mum started using mac about 7 years ago when I introduced it to her and she literally hasn’t used another foundation. I get like this from time to time but I love testing and trying out foundations. There are so m any new types of foundations out there today and with today’s technology, their claims are ever changing. This is why I like to switch it up a little. In the past 4 months I have gone between three foundations (I know CRAZY!!) and here are my thoughts on them. This is a little on the pricey side but it is MAC after all, and it will set up back €36.50.
The first foundation is my ever reliable MAC foundation. I usually wear the Pro Longware SPF 10 foundation in the shade NW20. But while I was in the shop I decided to choose a new foundation so I opted for MAC Studio Waterweight SPF30 Foundation. This is a nice light foundation that is great for during the day. I do feel that it doesn’t last as long as other foundations so I would not have worn in on a night out. On my skin it was a light-medium coverage, which is fine as I don’t have too much to cover (at the moment). It didn’t dry my skin out in any way either which some foundations can do. The reason I switched to a new foundation was because I felt this was a nice foundation just for daytime, it is a little like a tinted moisturizer just a little more coverage.
The next foundation I tried was the INGLOT AMC cream foundation. I am in love with this foundation!! Even though I have been going between three foundations, I have defiantly used this foundation the most because my bottle is empty (shopping trip!!). The coverage is amazing, its medium-full coverage but still looks light and natural on the skin. I bought mine in a shade darker than my skin tone so I could also wear this foundation on nights out when I had tan on. One great thing also is it’s water-resistant so you only have to worry about your mascara if you get caught in the rain!! It gives a dewy finish and looks flawless after a spritz of MAC Fix + over it. This is really at a great affordable price of €24 and after using this foundation, I can’t wait to try their other ones including their new stick foundations.
I then was doing my food shopping on my own (rare occurence). While I was going down the nappies and wipes isle picking up my few bits I was drawn to the Rimmel make-up stand. I decided to pick up their Match Perfection Foundation in the shade true nude. This only cost me €10.49. This is a lovely foundation for both day and night. It gave my skin a healthy glow. It gives great coverage so it really would suit most skin types. The only complaint I have about this foundation is that after a while it can go patchy and some areas of my skin appear dry and other area’s look oily and really shows those large pores. Still for €10.49 its a nice foundation.
I love switching it up and trying and testing new products. The above are my own opinions from using the foundations.
