My Favourite Foundations | Blogmas Day 9

Hello all welcome back,

Today  I’m going to do a post I said i would do a few days ago, and that is my favourite foundations. At the moment, my phone camera is broken and still needs repairing but I will credit everyone for the pictures.

My first two favourites are from Rimmel.

  1. Rimmel Lasting Finish

This foundation is a personal favourite mainly due to the formulation. I find foundations such as this one really light on the skin and super easy to wear and they don’t leave your skin feeling greasy and oily.

What I like about this foundation is the fact they have such a good range of colours and shades for everyone and I think that is definitely something other brands lack in. Its always good to know you’ll be able to find a perfect match or a close enough match to your skin colour.

I’d say the finish of this foundation is dewy and light and wears good throughout the day and provided you have a primer underneath, this foundation doesn’t crease and leave you with your smile lines creased either because I find that creasing is something that happens for me quite easily.
I would always blend this foundation with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge because it just gave the perfect base and overall finish to the foundation.

For £7.99 I would definitely recommend this foundation to anyone. Buy the foundation from Superdrug here! 

Benefits  (taken from the Superdrug description)

Rimmel’s first sweat, heat, humidity and transfer proof for up to 25 hours.

Enriched with a revitalizing Mineral Complex and Moisturizing Aqua Primer

Skin feels energized, hydrated and lightweight all day

2. My next favourite foundation is the Rimmel Match Perfection. This foundation was raved about on Youtube for so so long and I don’t blame anyone for raving about it. Again, the shade range is incredible and can really offer something for everyone. This foundation has the description of (Taken from the Boots site)

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation. Invisible, mistake-proof foundation for visibly perfected & healthier looking skin.

Weightless, smooth texture blends with skins real tone instead of masking it.

24HR moisture complex leaves skin feeling hydrated. Soft-focus powers help reduce imperfections, pores & dark circles. SPF 20 Dermatologist tested.

From this description I would semi agree. After applying this and taking it off at the end of the day, I do find my skin feeling hydrated and it cancels out my problem areas like blemishes from old spot scarring and dark circles. However, I wouldn’t say this foundation feels weightless because sometimes after applying, I can feel it on my skin and I know there’s something there.

Unlike the Rimmel Lasting Finish, this foundation doesn’t really wear as well. I find I have to powder much more with this foundation and apply concealer more than I usually would where I put it over the foundation. For me, thats a problem because I have combination oily skin and so keeping foundations on is a major must for me but other than the little problem with the wear, I really love this foundation. Again, its £7.99 from Superdrug!

My third and final foundation is the Revlon Colour Stay which I always get in the shade 150 Buff. The first time I bought this foundation, I was really impressed straight away. The colour match was perfect and the coverage was medium and definitely buildable.(I forgot to mention the Rimmel Foundations are light to medium coverage)

I got my foundation from my local factory shop where it was retailed for £4 whereas in other places it was £12.99 (Superdrug) and the same in Boots, so finding myself with getting a foundation that had more than 50% off was definitely a pat on the back bargain!

Again I love to blend this in with a primer underneath and a Real Techniques Beauty Sponge because they will always give me the best possible coverage and it applys much nicer. I’m always able to go through the day without feeling guilty that there’s a good coverage foundation on my face and i know it won’t wear off and that is something every girl needs for her foundation. (Or boys, we don’t judge <3) For oily combination skin I would say this is a must even though it is unfortunately on the pricey side

Buy the Revlon Colour Stay here! 😀

And that concludes today’s blog post! I’ll be doing another review on my Barry M Flawless Matte foundation very soon, so keep an eye out for that but other than that let me know what you think of these foundations! Have you tried any of them and what is your favourite?

Until next time,
