Foundations Currently On Trial

0 comments

Being as pale as a vampire makes foundation shopping extremely hard; especially in high street stores so when I find something that works I like to stick to it. I'm not one to change up my makeup routine very often but after going through my makeup collection and finding at least 5 unused foundations I thought it was about time to put some of them to the test.


L'Oreal Infallible Matte | I know this is a foundation that has featured a few times on my blog before and I absolutely loved it back then but I fell out of love with it a few months back. As I never did a full review as such I thought I'd trial it again and hope to fall back in love with what used to be my holy grail. After trying it out again over the past two weeks I've rekindled my love and this is now my everyday foundation. I'm a matte foundation kinda gal; always have been, always will be. This is perfect for creating a flawless base as it evens out skin tone and sits perfectly on the skin without feeling heavy and cakey. The only problem I have with this foundation is that it is slightly too dark, I'm very pale and the chances of me getting a tan anytime soon are minimal so I'll be sticking this back in my makeup drawer for when I eventually get round to fake tanning or hopping on a plane to catch some rays.

Rimmel Wake Me Up | This used to be one of my favourite foundations back when I first started my blog along with Rimmel's Match Perfection but they never quite had a light enough shade for me in the Wake Me Up range. Eventually they realised that there really are some girls as pale as a sheet so they brought out a Porcelain shade which is still slightly too dark but it'll do. Wake Me Up is my go to foundation for that rare occasion that I want dewy skin. It leaves the skin looking healthy and glowing which is perfect for these summer months, I wear it with a hell of a lot of bronzer and highlight for that perfect summer glow. I find this foundation works best with a beauty blender as my foundation brushes left a few streaks and nobody wants to rock that streaky look. I'm not a massive fan of this foundation anymore due to my love of all things matte but if you love to shine bright like a diamond then I'd definitely recommend this. 


L'oreal True Match | After seeing everyone and their nan absolutely love this foundation I just had to pick it up. The shade range is incredible and there really is something for everyone. I had a hard time working out exactly what shade I needed as there are just so many! I went for Rose Ivory which is the lightest shade. I've been wearing this on days that I want something a little lighter than L'Oreal's Infallible Matte Foundation as it feels like you're not wearing foundation at all but has a very build-able coverage. With summer starting to show up a little bit at the moment, this is perfect for the warmer days when you still want some coverage but don't want to feel like your face is melting from too much makeup. 


What's your current go to foundation?
