Hi All! I was inspired by Allure’s Best of Beauty 2015 list to share my favorite foundations ranging from $6-$62! I love trying out new products especially after seeing fab make-up tutorials of awesome MUAs mastering them. Check out a few of my favs and be sure to let me know what foundation and which brands you’ve been loving yourself. Enjoy!
Every now and then I like to splurge on a higher-end/high quality foundation especially if I’m tempted after watching a very persuasive product review. Haha! Darn that YouTube. Over the past 2-3 years I have fallen in love with these 4 foundations. Since the Lancome and Stila are of a thicker formula, I tend to wear those more in the Fall/Winter months and the MAC and Giorgio Armani in the Spring/Summer months out of the year.
- Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in 550 Suede C
“Up to 24-hour wear for divine, lasting perfection. It leaves the complexion perfectly smooth, velvety matte with no powdery effect”
- MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation in 8.5
“ Gives perfect color purity without looking ashy or chalky, reduces shine on the skin’s surface and helps to absorb excess oil.”
- Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 14 |
“Glides on seamlessly with a silky texture and all-day, buildable coverage for all skin types.”
- Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer in Cocoa 16
“An oil-free, high definition, high performance foundation that stays all day and delivers a flawless finish. It’s accompanied by a creamy concealer as well as a spatula applicator and brush for easy applying.”
Now on to my drugstore favs that I don’t feel AS guilty dropping into my shopping cart to purchase. Out of this category, the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse is my go-to for the hotter summer months since the formula is so light and airy (duh! it’s a mousse. haha) and the Revlon I wear in the colder winter months. So where does the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous fall in? Anywhere! It spreads pretty thin and can be worn anytime of year.
- Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Cocoa/Dark 3
Price: $7 – $9
“Revolutionary air-soft mousse that provides perfecting coverage for 100% matte perfection. It won’t clog pores and is safe for sensitive skin.”
- Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin in 410 Cappuccino
Price: $10 – $13
“Long wearing coverage and a lightweight formula that won’t cake, fade or rub off.”
- Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation in 320 Soft Sable
Price: $7 – $8
“An oil-free formula that provides medium coverage to even skin tone and cover perfecting. The result is a natural look that lasts for hours!”
I would love to hear what your top foundation picks are as well! I love trying new products and would love to test some of your favs out too! <3
