Foundation Collection

If you had asked about my foundation collection about 6 months ago, I would of laughed. I only owned MAC's Studio Fix and wore it day in, day out, scared to try anything else in case my skin broke out.
My skin has become more settled lately, with it turning from stupidly oily to oily/combination, it meant I could try some different formulas out.

Not a big collection I know, still on the look out for new things to try. In order of coverage, heavy to light, we have...

Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1C1 Shell
 With a heavy coverage this formula covers everything, I mean everything! 

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation in 100 Ivory
This a small step down from Double Wear in coverage, but it still has a great matte finish that lasts. 

MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
This is a holy grail product in the beauty blogging world, everyone with oily skin I recommend this to you. It's a medium coverage foundation that you can build to a heavier finish. It's easy to blend, stays on and only needs a touch up at the end of the day with my skin type.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 51
With my skin drying out slightly I can now wear lighter coverage foundations like this one. It gives a flawless finish with a slight dewy look that makes your skin look 'health', it does what it says on the tin!

What foundations would you recommend I try?
I think I'm going to purchase Jemma Kidd's Light As Air next.

  1. Thanx for this post, I love getting pale skinned foundation recommendations. I really want double wear.

  2. Foundation posts are my favourites I think! I have all of these except from the MAC one, MAC foundations break me out. The Jemma Kidd one is next on my list too, I'm also loving L'Oreal lumi magique - don't be put off by the fact it's not matte, it's glowy without being greasy! & it's medium coverage but can be built up.x

  3. You have right amount of foundation, foundations are my favourite thing to try out ;) I love Healthy Mix, but it's breaks me out. I might give it another go soon, and hopefully it wont. Double Wear is so nice I love it. x

  4. You have three of my fave foundations there :) not tried the MAC one though.
    I want to try the serum version of healthymix next! xx

  5. I really liked double wear until I completely broke out in spots after wearing it everyday.
    I now use double wear light which has a similar coverage but feels a lot fresher and not so cloggy on your skin1

  7. i love the rimmel lasting finish :) i really like the bourjois healthy mix serum - it has lovely coverage and isn't too heavy xx
