When The Body Shop discontinued one of my favorite products by them, I was sad to see it go. The Tea Tree BB Cream was one of my favorite lightweight, summer time face products. When I tried to see if I could still get my hands on it, the lady at the store informed me that they replaced it with this: the Matte Clay foundation. Will this be as good as the Tea Tree BB Cream?Read more
Today I continue my weekly makeup declutter and today’s episode is foundation. I am not much of a foundation girl. At least, I didn’t used to be. But then I started trying more and more in recent years and it has gotten a little out of hand. So much so that I have put my foundation wishlist on hold for the moment and I cannot buy anything new until I have tried all of the new foundations that I would still like to try. But there are also foundations that I have tried and weren’t that big of a success and that is what we are getting rid of today.Read more
A recent but not a new foundation: that is the Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony foundation. A foundation that I haven’t heard much about. No buzz, no nothing, but I knew the minute I spotted this in stores that I wanted to try this. Why? Because this is the European version of the much talked about US Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir foundation. That had some raving reviews and I of course had to try it out.Read more
If there is one thing I am always curious after is how good expensive makeup products are. Are they really worth their price point? Are they really any better than a product a fraction of the price from the drugstore? Very often my answer to that question is a solid no. There are very few luxury makeup products that I truly think are worth it. I did a video all about it last Saturday. Also in that video? This expensive, but oh so worth it YSL All Hours foundation.Read more
Time for another foundation review! I have been interested in trying some more foundations lately and this is quite a recent release I figured to bump it up the review line. This is the L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear foundation and it is the updated formula from the older Stay Fresh foundation. I reviewed the Infallible Stay Fresh foundation more than year ago. While I liked the formula, the shade was much too dark for me despite it being one of the lightest in the range. On top of that, it oxidized and me turned me orange. Not a great look. Now that the formula has been renewed AND available in a lighter shade, I figured I would give it another whirl.
If there is one makeup brand I have not tried many products by it is Clinique. I have tried a few of their skincare products though such as the Dramatically Different Lotion and Hydroblur Moisturizer. And so far: what I have tried, I loved of the skincare range. So I figured I should start trying some of their makeup products too. The product I hear most people raving about? Their foundations and thus I decided that would be a good place to start.

It is getting colder which means I am working on changing up my foundation. Where I prefer lightweight, barely there foundations in the summer time, during fall and winter I go with richer textures. I am not necessarily looking for a full coverage foundation, but what I am looking for is a formula that will do something extra for my skin. The Too Faced Born This Way foundation promises to do just that.
