Hello again dear readers,
I am back with another beauty product comparsions posts. Today’s post will be on foundations in my collection. Pretty much it’s my own view / thoughts of using the products and short. In my opinion, having a good quality foundation is the key to a flawless face. Anyways, let’s get straight into it.
Foundation one: Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet.
I had a gift card from David Jones and decided to try a high end foundation and came across this little beauty. A water-based foundation that feels like a second skin when you apply this product and the scent is pleasant. The foundation provides light coverage and provides a matte finish. For someone who has normal to dry skin, I found this foundation shows dry spots so to make this work, having a moistuirsed face is important to making this product work. For oily/ combination, this may be suited more to those skin types. As I prefer matte foundations and have good skin, this is a good foundation as I don’t need too much coverage. I prefer to use the fingers for application for a natural look and brushes for heavier coverage.
2) Shisedo Synchro skin lasting liquid foundation.
Another high end foundation that’s in my collection that I purchsed from Myer. An oil free foundation (like the Chanel foundation above) that has a matte finish. It has a medium coverage that can be built and allows your face to shine through. It feels silky and smooth. Even on my skin type, I didn’t seem to have dry patches to show through. Highly recommended, depsite the high price. In my opinion, applying with fingers works best for this product and brushes for more coverage.
3) Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
Now onto drugstore foundations. I’ve used bourjois in the past and no problems with this foundations. It has a fruity smell which is refreshing and contains vitamin mix to keep the skin hydrated and healthy. It’s a medium coverage foundation. The shade range is limited though so if you’re on the extreme side of light or dark, this foundation may not be suitable. I think this foundation suits all skin types. This foundation can be applied with both fingers and brushes.
4) Nude by Nature Flawless liquid foundation:
Edit: This product is sold in Australia and on the nude by nature website 🙂
I recieved this as part of a beauty heaven team trial and there is mixed reviews of this product. The packaging is very classy for a drug store foundation and it gave me a natural finish. The downside for this foundation is that it can look cakey if your face isn’t moisturised and primed. The foundation gives a matte finish and a medium-full coverage. I have this in the shade yellow sand and it matches perfectly with my skin colour. The key is to find your matching shade and make sure your face is primed and only use a little product. Using a brush is highly recommended.
So that ends my post with my experiences with foundations. Of course to make a face product work, a properly moisturised face is essential. I did find a difference with the high end vs the drugstore in terms of application and feeling on the skin. Using the right products for your face also helps.
See you in the next post.
