The right foundation for you!
“Giordani Gold age defying foundation” I got it from my mum when I just started getting into makeup and I wasn’t disappointed in it on the other hand I wasn’t exactly blown away by it either! It’s really heavy and offers little protection with only SPF 8. And it’s fairly smudgy and runny so for some people topping it up with a layer of finishing powder would have to be a solution. Nonetheless it looks really rich when applied, it almost looked golden; it especially looks good in sunlight, as it contains reflective formula that highlights the skin and especially the cheekbones. Its current price is £15.00/$23.18 and although it offers a lot and it is a prestigious brand, there are other foundations which are much cheaper and offer the same, if not more!
Next is another favourite of mine “GOSH Lift me up!” It’s fairly light and covers the skin evenly. It lies on perfectly and delivers a very natural effect. It has a dry texture so when applied doesn’t leak or smudge. I’m really happy with it and at $9.99/$15.44 I hope you will be too! It is a bit overpriced, but I think you can find it for about £5.00/$7.72 and it’s worth it either way!
Maybelline’s “Dream matte mousse” is a good foundation, but it is very heavy and really gives you the cakey effect. I’m not a very big fan of it, but I do have two versions! I would use it in emergency situations, but would never chose to wear it if I knew I would be exposed to very good lighting or would be standing too close to someone I want to impress – basically it’s not for close ups. But the texture is pleasant, makes the skin feel soft and distributes well. If I ever run out of it I wouldn’t buy it again especially not at £6.45/$9.97!
I watched an advertisement for Sheer Cover and decided to try it out - that was one of the best decisions I made (makeup wise!). There really is nothing bad about it. It works so well, it covers the skin so evenly portraying the airbrushed effect very well indeed, it contain beneficial minerals. Feels incredibly light on the skin, it has shimmer that reflects light - making the face look bright. I also love the sandy effect it gives me. It costs £7.49/$11.57 and I realise that it might be pricey, but buy this and you don’t need anything else!
I feel like I don’t have any more to say!
My last foundation is “Avon Personal Match”. It isn’t particularly amazing; in fact it really isn’t special at all. It resembles a lesser heavy version of Rimmel lasting finish, I would recommend it for people who don’t need much to cover – who just want to even out the colour here and there. It isn’t bad and defiantly worth looking at and trying out, but generally doesn’t make my top favourites! I bought it for £3.99/$6.16.
Hope you’ve read it all and are not falling asleep now!
