Foundations – variety is the spice of life !

The more I write for Breast Friends the more I realise what a creature of habit I am.  I tend to find a product/brand that I like and stick to them for YEARS.  Well no more I have already made the move of shaking up my skincare regime and now its time for foundations to get an overhaul.

I have gone out and splurged on the following products and here’s how I found them

Clarins Everlasting Foundation (Wheat or Sand)

This is the foundation I have been using for an absolute age, its got a great coverage without being too cakey.  To create a more dewy look I mix it will some Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector in Rose, it just gives a lovely look and a long-lasting finish.  – It’s no wonder it was my must have foundation for so long.  It goes without saying this is a foundation that I would buy again and again.

Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation (Wheat or Sand)

I first was introduced to this foundation for a photoshoot I was doing.  It’s much more lightweight than the Everlasting Foundation.  The finish is much more dewy but it has less coverage so I feel more suitable if you want a light natural finish and if your skin is blemish free.  For me this foundation is hit or miss, if I’m having a good skin day I like it if I’m having a bad skin day then I would opt for something else.


Charlotte Tilbury – Magic Foundation (Medium 5)

This is a foundation that does exactly what is says on the tin, it promises flawless, poreless, youthful looking skin everyday.  Now I only have used this twice as I only bought it recently, I love the coverage and the finish.  It delivers on all of its promises however I do think I am slightly out on the shade and next time I will probably go for a different shade.


Inglot – HD Perfect Coverup Foundation (77)

This is the foundation I would use if I was going on TV or getting my photo taken.  It’s a full coverage foundation which I just love.  It can be a bit drying so I mix it with and illuminators and I find it just glides on.


Lancôme – Teint Idole Ultra Wear (03 Beige Diaphane)

This is a really nice foundation with a medium coverage.  I only used this once but I was really happy with the result.  I took some #nofilterneeded photos which is a really good sign, the foundation lasted all day and looked great right up to when I took it off, its defo one that I would buy again my skin was flawless.


Rimmel – Fresher Skin (103 True Ivory)

This one was super duper cheap I picked it up in Pennys while I was queuing up to pay.  Its got a lightweight coverage, it wasn’t heavy or cakey on my skin.  For such an inexpensive foundation I was really happy with the result my skin was left looking very youthful and dare I say FRESH


Revlon – Photoready Insta-Fix (130 Shell Coquillage)

This foundation brought me down memory lane back to my Pan Stick days, it’s a stick foundation thankfully not as oily as Pan Stick.  I found it to be a little drying and will probably only use it on top of another foundation to help get a colour I am happy with.  The coverage wasn’t great either so I probably won’t be buying this one again.
