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! maybelline superstay foundation 20 cameo full coverage review swatch

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. it cosmetics cc cream fair foundation review swatch

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? essence fresh & fit foundation review swatch 10 fresh ivory

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous foundation

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 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.  covergirl ready set gorgeous foundation review swatch 110 creamy natural

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 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 Healthy Mix foundation (old vs new formula)

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 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.
