Foundation Review

Because it's summer, and I am a beach addict, I usually get darker during the summer time, so I needed to stock up on darker foundation shades so I decided to try out some new ones.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15
This is the main foundation that I was using during winter time and spring time. It's a really great foundation. The finish is really nice and matte. So if you have oily skin is is a good foundation for oily skin. It is medium coverage and of course build-able. It also did not cause me to break out and really proved that there is a big difference between drugstore make-up and higher end make-up. However, the lady a MAC was right, it is not good for taking photos. So maybe its perfect for everyday wear.

MAC Matchmaster SPF 15
I found my match! I love this foundation. Debbie did a mini review on it in a previous post here, so I decided to try it out, and she was so right, its really a nice foundation with a lovely finish. The lady in the MAC store that helped me out told me that this foundation is her 'special occasion' foundation, and I can surely see why.

Revlon ColorStay
Everyone and their mama is raving about this foundation...except for Debbie. She told me that she didn't have a good experience with the foundation because it would oxidize so I was quite skeptical about purchasing it. But because it was not really expensive I said what heck and I was glad I did! The finish is similar to that of the Studio Fix Fluid, which is really nice. I think this would be a good everyday foundation. What I like the most about this foundation is that I don't feel like I am wearing anything on my face when I have it on. Warning! when you go to purchase the foundation, please read the label because if you have oily skin you should get the formula for combination/ oily skin because this will prevent/ reduce oxidization.

Sephora Perfecting Cover Foundation
This foundation is light - medium coverage. The formula is somewhat thin and leaves my face feeling greasy after a few hours. I was also not impressed with the finish and is very disappointed with the fact that it oxidizes. I really do not have anything good to say about this foundation.

Which foundation is your current favourite?

  1. I am a Studio Fix Fluid lover for life! But I am really considering getting all the matchmaster shades for my makeup kit.

    Great Post!

    1. The Matchmaster would be great for your kit Shervonne, I think its a very versatile foundation.
