Drugstore foundations is a category of makeup I love trying out. Often they are not only as good as high end brands, but they can even be better and at a more affordable price point. For instance while I love the YSL All Hours foundation, the very similar L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear is as good and a fraction of the price. As far as drugstore foundations go, I have tried a few by Max Factor, but they have never been perfect. Will the Radiant Lift foundation break with tradition and wow me for a change?

Today we are having a closer look at a not so new foundation, but one that I excited for nonetheless. I bought this last year just after it launched, but I hadn’t really given it a proper try just yet. So last month I committed to giving this a good try. It came with me to New York and I used it for a good 2 – 3 weeks straight. I wore it all day, had it on in a number of situations and feel I can now really give you a proper review of the Dior Backstage foundation.

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.
