L'Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation 20 Ivory comparison new formula review swatch stay fresh matte update

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.

Too Faced Born This Way foundation

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.  too faced born this way foundation snow review swatch light skin pale fair

Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation

Foundation was the last makeup item I got into. That is why I am running terribly behind. For a long time, I didn’t really feel my skin needed much coverage, but I have found that a good even base can do wonders for your makeup look. Since I do not need super heavy coverage, I love lightweight, natural looking foundations. After having tried the Naked Skin concealer by Urban Decay and loving it, I of course couldn’t leave out the foundation. That is why today we are reviewing the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation.

You know I have to try it when Essence releases a new foundation. So when I spotted the #Insta Perfect foundation, I knew I wanted to give it a go. Because whenever a budget friendly foundation comes along that has potential, I am all game for trying it. And there is another reason why this foundation is unique in Essence’s range: it is their first foundation that comes in more than 3 shades.  essence insta perfect liquid makeup foundation swatch review cool porcelain

Catrice HD Liquid Radiance foundation

Catrice HD Liquid Radiance foundation

When I showed the new Catrice products for fall/ winter 2018, I immediately got questions about the new foundation: HD Liquid Radiance. Since I wanted to wait until I went back to work to see how it would hold up during a regular workday, with perhaps a workout tacked on at the end, I didn’t review this foundation until now. However, by now I have worn it enough and put it through enough to see whether this foundation is any good. How does it compare to the regular HD Liquid foundation?

In terms of foundation, I am not too adventurous. I usually just stick to my drugstore favorites and it has taken some time for me to expand and become interested into some more high end foundations. I definitely have a few higher end options on my wishlist right now and there are a few more that I already acquired. One such foundation was the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation.  tarte rainforest of the sea foundation review swatch fair beige
