Happy New Year! It’s January 1st, which means I’m back for a new year filled with blogs on makeup, lifestyle and fashion. It was good to have a bit of a break last week, but I’m back in full swing with a brand new review of a brand new product. Maybelline just released their new Super Stay 24 H Full Coverage foundation and I am reviewing it for you today. If that isn’t a good start to the new year, then I don’t know what is! Here we go!

Today’s blog is a special one. A) I wrote it with a mouse and my phone, because my keyboard went down. B) It is on a product that is very much raved about. The IT Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC Cream is a cult favorite. And for good reason I’ve found: I am absolutely lovin’ it.

My first Essence foundation became a fact with the release of the new Fresh & Fit foundation. This foundation is the first one that appealed to me as it finally seemed to come in a light enough shade. Because that is the main issue with Essence foundation: the shade range. So how did I fair with this?

My favorite drugstore foundations? Bourjois Healthy Mix. Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless. And now also: Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous. This is a foundation that I have had for a while, but that I just hadn’t gotten round to make my mind up about. The reason? This is a very hard to get foundation if you are not in North America and so I didn’t use a whole lot as I didn’t want to use it up too quickly. I know, bummer, but after using this again for a few weeks, I now have a good idea of what this foundation can do.

A few weeks ago, I already reviewed the L’Oreal Infallible Stay Fresh foundation. While that looked like a promising foundation, it didn’t do the trick for me and since I like the Nude Magique Cushion foundation so much I wasn’t about to give up on L’Oreal’s foundations just yet. I purchased this L’Oreal Infallible Matte foundation in a deal hoping to try my hand at a fuller coverage foundation. Here’s how I fared.

This past year, testing out new foundations have been my thing. I was never much of a foundation girl. My skin was fussy and most of the time didn’t like it. It cause itching and breakouts most of the time, but as my skincare routine improved, I found I could wear more and more different foundations. So that prompted me to find a great foundation and as you do, I started off trying some drugstore foundations. One such foundation I tried out is the L’Oreal Infallible Stay Fresh foundation.

Bourjois has reformulated their Healthy Mix foundation and I was curious to try it. The old version is one of my favorite drugstore foundations, but it is a bit too dark and yellow for me on most days. This is why I don’t reach for it all that often. The newer formula promises to be even more beneficial to your skin and it also comes in a very light shade: 51 Light Vanilla. Here’s how the old Healthy Mix formula compares to the new one.
