Favorite Foundations

In this post I'll be discussing my favorite foundations I'm currently using and loving, as well as foundations I'm dying to try. 

First off I just want to start off by saying, I'm absolutely in love with all four of these foundations for different reasons and i cannot choose one favorite, they're all amazing in my opinion!

Laura Mercier silk creme foundation $55. 
I mainly stick to full coverage foundations and this is one of the best full coverage foundations I've ever tried. It's very full coverage and requires using very little product, which really makes your money last. I've had this foundation for over a year and It's still quite full. Mind you I don't wear foundation very often, I'd say a few times a month. The finish is beautiful and has nice glow to it.
Definitely worth the $55. It can be purchased at Sephora!

Makeup forever HD foundation $49. This is the only foundation I've repurchased so far and will continue to do so whenever I run out. I absolutely love it. All the hype about this foundation is completely accurate. I've been using this foundation for a few years and it's amazing! The coverage and the finish is perfection.  

Giorgio Armani Luminious silk foundation. This was a hard purchase for me lol It's very hard to justify spending over $70 for a foundation but I've read about it in magazines as beauty editors top picks and all over YouTube constantly and I couldn't resist any longer. The price is the only downside to this product. It really does make your skin look luminous. If I'm ever wearing makeup during the day, this is my go to choice because it's silly, lightweight foundation. 

Mac studio fix fluid foundation $32. The least expensive of the 4 and an absolute staple in my makeup collection. It's a matte finish with medium, buildable cobdrage. This is my go to foundation for a night out, a photoshoot or anytime I have a spray tan. Mainly because it's the darkest foundation I own lol and it works so well for any occasion. I do prefer to wear medium/full coverage foundations during the evening and light to medium during the day. 

Those are my top 4 foundations that will always remain in my collection! 

The foundations below are ones I intend on purchasing soon or in the future. My favorite makeup products to try and buy are foundations and highlighters. I obsess over both lol 

I've been wanting to purchase this foundation for years! I have absolutely no idea why I haven't yet. I've sampled it and love it so I have no reason not to lol 

I don't really know too much about the Kat Von D brand but this foundation became popular very quickly because of the full coverage it provides. I want to buy it for that reason alone! I went to purchase it last Christmas but it was completely sold out and I forgot about it until I was browsing sephora today. 

Bobbi Brown skin foundation $55. I've heard amazing reviews on YouTube on this foundation. 


Ysl touché éclat foundation $66. This is another foundation I'm skeptical on purchasing because of the price. I did sample it and liked it but I wasn't in love with it. I'm contemplating this purchase. If anyone has bought it and loves it, please leave me a comment and let me know!

Dior nude foundation $54. Again, I've heard amazing reviews on this foundation and I'm dying to try it! I may have to pick up a sample this week. 

I'll be doing a post this week on winter fashion but if you enjoy reading makeup posts, let me know and I'll do more reviews on my favorite products :)

Current Skincare Products

Previously, I was using a Biore scrub, neutrogena moisturizer and Kirkland face wipes. They were working well for a while but with my skin constantly changing, my products do as well. 

Recently I purchased Philosophy's purity facial cleanser and hope in a jar moisturizer.  I purchased the smallest sizes just to try out, but so far I love both products and will be purchasing the larger sizes once I run out. My skin looks and feels great from it and I'm very happy with it. 

Philosophy can be purchased at Sephora or The Bay!!

Tomorrow's post will be on my favorite makeup products I'm loving right now :)
