Catrice Poreless Perfection Mousse foundation

Since the new Catrice products have been released I have been trying them out as much as I can. You will have seen me select the new Catrice Poreless Perfection Mousse foundation as part of my Shop My Stash. So I have been using this daily for more than a week to get a good…

Base Makeup Declutter

It is another week in which I declutter my makeup collection. I did my eyeshadow palette collection last week and this week we are doing base makeup. This means everything that I would use to get my makeup look started. So think foundation, concealer, powder, primer and setting sprays. Since I am less attached to…

Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation

The foundation currently in my Shop My Stash? Alongside the It Cosmetics CC cream I decided to finally put the Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation to the test. This is a foundation I have owned for some months, but I knew it would not be great for the summer time. Now that it is the winter…

ELF Swirl Foundation Brush

Are we not always looking for affordable makeup brushes? I certainly am! Some of my favorite brands to buy brushes from are Zoeva and Sigma, but those can still be on the more expensive side of things. So at times I love looking at brushes by drugstore brands. After my favorite brush for primer by…

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Foundation

If you watched my most recent Get Ready With Me then you may know that I was in the midst of trying the Fenty Beauty hydrating foundation. It was a foundation I really wanted to try because a) it’s hydrating, b) it comes in a bunch of shades and c) I wanted to try more…

2019 Favorites // Base Products

We only have a few days left in 2019 so time to gather my thoughts and my favorites and chat to you about them. In total I have 4 videos for you and today we are kicking things off with my favorite base products of the year. And I do apologize for the lack of…

Max Factor Radiant Lift foundation

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…

Dior Backstage Face & Body foundation

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…

Colourpop No Filter 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…

Make Up Revolution Conceal & Hydrate Foundation & Concealer

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…

Makeup Basics // Picking a Foundation Shade

In today’s video I will be sharing my 5 tips for finding your shade match in any foundation. I do this while chatting about some of my newest, favorite or most exemplary foundations to exemplify these tips. Hopefully this way I can help you to not make the mistakes I certainly made when I first…

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude foundation

About a year ago I decided I wanted to try more high end foundations. I bought a few over the course of the year and am now making my way through them and testing them out fully. During the month of August, I was up for an easy lightweight foundation. I decided to pull in…

Makeup Basics | Picking a Foundation

To continue my makeup basics series, I thought that after talking about eyeshadows for a bit, we could switch to foundation. Foundation was a product I struggled with a lot when I first started using makeup, but I also think it is a product that lots of people are interested in trying. However, selecting the…

Bourjois Healthy Mix BB Cream

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…

Essence You Better Work Tinted Day Cream

Now that it’s summer I like switching up my base to something more lightweight and airy. So when Essence released a new tinted day cream last winter as part of their spring/ summer 2019 collection, I knew I would bust it out come summer time. I love bb creams, but tinted moisturizers are quite new…

Maybelline Dream Cushion foundation

The foundation I used in the month of May was this Dream Cushion foundation by Maybelline that I have had for nearly 2 years and wore but never reviewed. I decided to make a point of trying to use it up this month as it was on the older side and I am not sure…

MAC Waterweight foundation

It’s foundation time again! I have been trying so many different foundations lately and it had been a while since I tried anything by MAC. I used to own the infamous Face & Body foundation and I wanted to repurchase that. But that foundation doesn’t have a great shade match for me and that is…

Maybelline Dream Urban Cover Foundation

Are you ready for a new drugstore foundation? One that has everyone talking? Because supposedly this new Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation is the drugstore dupe for the IT Cosmetics CC cream. And you know: if us makeup lovers can get a great product for a cheaper price, then we will go after it. So…

The Ordinary Serum foundation

The Ordinary is not only an affordable skincare brand, they also do some other products. One of those products is a range of 2 different foundations: the coverage and serum foundations. The coverage foundation promises to be more full coverage, but since I prefer a light to medium coverage foundation I decided to try the…

The Body Shop Matte Clay foundation

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…

Makeup Declutter | Foundation

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…

Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony foundation

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…

YSL All Hours foundation

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…

Clinique Even Better Glow foundation

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…

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…

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…

Essence Insta Perfect 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…

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…

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea 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…

L’Oreal True Match (reformulated)

It took ages for me to try the reformulated version of the European L’Oreal True Match. This was released a while ago, but since I wasn’t a fan of the shade selection, I hadn’t bought it yet. But then some shades came out and became available at my local drugstore and so I finally decided…

Wet N Wild Photofocus foundation

The Wet N Wild Photofocus foundation is a cult favorite by now and I was lucky enough to snatch one up from the US drugstore when I visited last year. Since they only had a few shades left, I picked one up that was a tad light for me during the summer, which is why…

Top 5 Fair skin foundations at the drugstore

Foundation shades are a hot topic at the moment. While many high end brands have good or decent shade ranges, the drugstore is far behind when it comes to offering a good shade range. Both on the dark and light end of the spectrum you can really struggle finding a shade that is right for…

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable foundation

In no. 2 new foundations at the drugstore we have Rimmel. Recently, Maybelline, Rimmel and Max Factor released new foundations and I’ve been taking my time to try each out and write blog post about it. I already reviewed the new Maybelline Superstay formula, which is a super longlasting, full coverage foundation. Today’s review is…

Maybelline Superstay foundation

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…

It Cosmetics CC cream

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…

Essence Fresh & Fit foundation

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…

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous foundation

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…

L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Matte foundation

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…

L’Oreal Infallible Stay Fresh foundation

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…

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation (old vs new formula)

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…

Catrice 24 H Made to Stay foundation

If you’ve been following my blog this past week, then you may have expected a review like this. Catrice has launched their Spring/ Summer 2017 line and I got my hands on quite a few goodies. I decided to first start trying out the foundation as that was the product that intrigued me most. I…

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation

Lately I have found myself on a major foundation kick. I’ve been trying new releases left and right. Moreover, where I normally opt for a light coverage foundation, I have also been dabbling with full coverage ones. Another type of foundation I’ve been trying out is the matte foundation. So many people swear by those…

L’Oreal True Match foundation US

Two years ago I reviewed the L’Oreal True Match foundation. I really liked it at the time. I also knew however that in the US, this product looks differently and is available in many more shades. In the past two years I stopped being super duper pale for most of the year and so the…

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

Foundation was the last make up product that I added to my routine. I don’t have the world’s most terrible skin and that’s why I was always quite skeptical towards wearing foundation. Trying foundation is therefore something I do like to do, but which I don’t get round to very often. Usually when I have…

Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude foundation Light Porcelain

Two weeks ago, I posted a not so positive review of the Rimmel BB Cream Radiance. To balance things out and to show you that Rimmel most definitely does some amazing foundations, I decided to post another review of one of their face products. That is why today is devoted to the Rimmel Lasting Finish…

Catrice Even Skin Tone Foundation

When Catrice releases a new foundation, I have to try it. Especially if it is a foundation that comes in some nice, light colors. I already showed this briefly in my Catrice/ Essence new products overview a few weeks ago, but when you start using a foundation every day and has become your favorite, it…

Chanel Vitalumière Aqua foundation

Time for another foundation review! My quest for the ultimate foundation continues, though a little less fervently than before. And if it hadn’t been for the fact that I could pick this up at a 30% discount, I doubt I’d have picked it up at all. For some time a high end drugstore held residence…

L’Oreal True Match foundation

My quest for a good foundation that fulfills most of my needs seems to have become a never ending search for new things to try. I love my Dior foundation, but since that’s quite expensive, finding a good drugstore alternative would be nice. A while ago, my drugstore had a discount on all L’Oreal products…

Rimmel Match Perfection foundation

A few days ago I posted my spring make up look where I used this foundation as a base. At the time I already alluded to how I felt about this product. I had never tried a Rimmel foundation before and I was curious to try them. I love their BB cream and almost used…
