In this month’s shop my stash I decided to select the Colourpop No Filter foundation as one of two foundations to use this month. Earlier this year I already reviewed the accompanying concealer in this line. I liked it, but it emphasized my lines a bit because it has a drier, more matte finish. So it didn’t work well with my skin type. So I was skeptical to try the foundation, but since I had it lying about and I hadn’t given it a proper try yet, I finally decided to put in my rotation and review it for you.

You know I love a good drugstore product and if there is one brand I like trying things out from it would be Make Up Revolution. Their eyeshadow palettes for one, but after trying their Conceal & Define concealer and that instantly going to the top of my concealer favorites’ list, I knew I had to try their new Conceal & Hydrate range. It launched last August and by now I have worn both the foundation and concealer for 2 weeks straight. In other words, plenty of time to give both of these a full review.

After my all time favorite BB cream was discontinued by The Body Shop, some people recommended I look into the newly released Bourjois Healthy Mix BB Cream. It took ages before I could find it in store last winter and since BB cream is a summer makeup product for me I didn’t get around to using it until this month. Will this be a good replacement for the BB cream I loved so much? More importantly yet: will it be a good, lightweight summer time base that can withstand a bit of sweat and heat?
