My Make-Up Collection - Foundations.

Hello lovelies, I thought I would do an updated make-up collection post but go into a bit more detail and show you a bit more, by doing this I am breaking up the products I use into categories such as foundations, blushers, bronzers, lipsticks etc and doing it draw by draw as in my make up collection I use Muji storage and one draw on my dressing table. Today I am going to start of with my foundation collection the first draw, yeah there's more, whoops. I will go round clockwise till I reach the end, hope you enjoy my collection.

Draw One - Foundations.

As if this is only the first draw, I love a good base! It is just needed for me. I used to forever search for the perfect foundation or my HG (Holy Grail) I have finally found it! 

High-end - Mac Studio Sculpt in NW20
Drugstore - Rimmel 25 Hour in Soft Beige

I obviously like the others also, I love trying out new products and comparing my favorite foundations to others. I had a colour match to see what Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation matched my skin but was a bad idea to go with fake tan on, my own fault I shouldn't have bought it as it is far too dark but I can use it when I fake tan I guess. I did kindly get a sample not to long ago from a lovely lady at Boots and it is a perfect match and I loved the finish it gave me. I will always prefer my Mac though. I love a good full coverage and that 'flawless finish'. My holy grail foundations do that for me. L'Oreal Infallible is quite watery to begin with but works into the skin wonderfully and gives you that air brush finish, I also love the scent to the foundation.  L'Oreal True Match is medium to full coverage, L'Oreal Lumi Magique gives you that glow you need when you have had a rubbish nights sleep and is medium to full coverage. 

I haven't yet tried Rimmel's Wake Me Up my friend kindly gave me this the other day so can't wait to try it out. Obviously my holy grail up there Rimmel 25 hour but I also love Rimmel Match Perfection too it is the same coverage but the tiniest bit lighter, less heavier on the skin.

Elf HD Mattifying Cream Foundation, this is a new product to me, I never use these sort of foundations but when Elf had there 50% of offer I thought why not give it a try. It is sheer to medium coverage but could go all the way to full with another layer. It goes on very creamy then dries matte but don't worry dry skin people, I have dry areas and it doesn't effect it in anyway. Samina Pure Make-Up Mineral Foundation, I'm terrible for saying no and especially at this incidence. I was in my own world as you are when your shopping on your own in your favorite store this happened to be Debenhams. I was minding my own business and a lovely woman collared me for a 'free' make over, I say 'free' like this because they always push you into buying something unless it's just me and my weaknesses. She gave me a lovely make over but I knew when I looked at myself in her mirror it wasn't the coverage I liked and thought why am I buying this but I did. I have been using it now as a powder for all over as this is not a full coverage that I like for me, it is sheer to medium coverage. But the lady did see it is all pure and it doesn't clog all your pores up so that's always a plus I guess. Leichner Tinted Foundation, this is in the shade believe it or not porcelain, for all us pale girly's out there you would look at that and think that is no way porcelain, but it is! I don't mind this shade as I like to go a tadge darker, I like to put some colour into my face, I hate being pale. This is a very thick foundation and you only need the tiniest amount as it goes a long way. It is quite long lasting for a tinted moisturiser but I have noticed through out the day your face gets darker and darker, not a good look so bare that in mind AND it smells like granny's. 

Lastly some sample foundations I have been loving, I have mentioned the Estee Lauder one above that it the little bottle with the black lid. Benefit Hello Flawless is nearly running out, sad times I got this in the 'How to look the best at everything' set in medium. It is a medium to full coverage foundation, it feels quite light on the skin and this dinky bottle is great for your make up bag for touch ups. Rimmel Stay Matte, I was dubious to try this foundation as having dry areas on my face I steer clear of mouse type foundations as I remember in high school I used to get ready at my friends house and she only used mouse foundations and I would look fine going to school but by about 10am you wouldn't even tell I had anything on. Think I was scared from mouse foundations from there but thought as I received this sample I may as well try it out! So glad I did as I love it. It is quite thick and lasts all day, goes on really creamy and dries matte. Once I get through my unhealthy collection of foundations I may have to purchase the full sized one of these. 

Since doing this post I have been using a foundation from Royal Effem and it could be my new favorite! I will review it alone soon, you will all want to try it it is amazing.
