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.

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.

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 to bite the bullet.

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 I am only getting round to reviewing this now. Is this as good as everyone says it is?

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 you. Having fair to pale skin myself (it totally depends on how much time I spend outdoors in the summer time, how pale I get in the winter), I know the struggle is real to find a foundation that is affordable and matches me. These are my favorite picks.
