Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope … I’m back with vol. 2 of my makeup collection (Vol. 1 of my makeup collection was my Primer Collection) … grab a snack and settle in this one is a long one … I have a ton of foundation …. So I will be doing this in 2 parts …. (Part 1 of the foundations is already live on the blog)
*Note: I apply all my foundations with a beauty sponge … I never use a foundation brush… however there are a few of these foundations I can get away with applying with my figures …. typically the bb cc and tinted moisturizers*
So let’s jump on in ….
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation $39 for 1 fluid ounce at Sephora and on the Tarte website and it comes in 30 shades with 10 shades for deeper skin and I am in the shade 22 S Light Sand (light skin with yellow undertones) but I think if I ever purchase this one again I will go for the shade 22N Light Neutral.
It’s billed as a hypoallergenic, vegan foundation that delivers powerful pollution defense and weightless, buildable coverage that looks naturally flawless.
They claim this is a medium coverage with a naturally-radiant finish. This is actually a very light weight light to buidlable medium coverage. It does have this pretty radiance to it.
This is another one that I really love the way my skin looks in. So radiant and dewy.
This one is a must set foundation there is no way this foundation will last any length of time without a powder.
This one is also not for oil skinned people…. this one is too emollient for oily skin.
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation $50 for 1 fluid ounce at Sephora and is billed as a water-based, oil-free foundation that delivers undetectable coverage and a fresh, hydrated glow for the most natural skin-like finish.
It comes in 22 shades with 13 shades for deeper skin tones and I am in the shade Beige 3 (medium beige with neutral undertones; for light to medium skin) however I think the shade Sand 2 (light beige with neutral undertones; for fair to light skin) would suite me better.
I have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. There are days this foundation is amazing and then other days that it just doesn’t want to set down and slips all over the place. This is another one of those foundations that refuses to stick to the sides of nose.
I would love to try it in the Sand shade but this price tag is just not worth it for this foundation.
Armani Power Fabric Longwear High Cover Foundation $64 for 1 fluid ounce of product at Sephora and is billed as liquid foundation that delivers a natural velvet-matte finish and SPF 25 for up to 16 hours of full coverage and the anti-aging effects of daily sunscreen and is made with patented Micro–fil™ technology with pigments that lay flat for seamless blending and layering and a flawless, natural-matte finish.
This foundation comes in 30 shades with 10 shades for deeper skin tones and I have this is the shade 5.5 (medium skin with neutral undertone) but I wish I would have had it in the shade 3.5 (fair skin with neutral undertone) but I purchased at a time when I was super tan. It’s not way too deep for me but I do have to fuss with it a bit to get it to work for me now.
I love this foundation … because of the price tag I use it sparingly because I love it so much I don’t want to have repurchase it at this price tag.
It’s velvety and smoothing and full coverage and it’s a matte but it’s a comfortable matte that I can even get away with using in the winter time.
BH Cosmetics Naturally Flawless Foundation $9.50 for 1 fluid ounce of product on the BH website and comes in 20 shades with 9 shades for deeper skin tones I have it in the shade 208 medium beige (a perfect match for me).
This foundation is billed as having Hyaluronic Acid to lock moisture in giving a soft focus look with a medium to full undetectable coverage that leaves the skin with a luminous appearance with an ultra light weight coverage.
This foundation is pretty and lasts a very long time. I get tons of complements anytime I wear this foundation.
Believe Beauty Skin Finish Foundation $5 for .85 fluid ounces only at Dollar General Stores and comes in 11 shades with 4 shades for deeper skin tones and I am in the shade Nude.
It’s billed as a medium to full coverage foundation blends effortlessly for a flawless look. Its blendable formula blurs imperfections while smoothing your skin.
The claims on this one are true… every last one! This is a freaking amazing foundation!!! I can’t believe it’s only $5 because everything from the bottle to the product feels super lux.
This is another one that is one of my favorite foundations and it’s another one that does need to be set , however you do have some time with out there being any slip if you choose not to set this one ….. I’m able to get a good 4 hours before I have to bounce the foundation out with a sponge on days where I choose to not set it.
This one remains radiant even under a matte powder.
A beautiful …. beautiful foundation and if you are able to get your hands on it I highly recommend it.
J Cat Beauty HD Perfection Skinsealer Foundation $8.99 for .85 fluid ounces of product on their website and is billed as a flawless, full coverage foundation that gives the skin the most beautiful natural finish.
It comes in 10 shades with 4 shades for deeper skin … I chose the shade warm honey but I wish I would have Sweet Buff because the shade I have is way too orange I have to use my foundation mixers to get a shade that will work with my skin tone.
I also just don’t enjoy this one as much as I did the first time I tried it. It’s a tacky foundation that just doesn’t set down even with powder.
I’ll use this one up but I don’t see myself repurchasing this one.
L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation $14.99 for 1 fluid ounce of product at Ulta as is billed as a longwear foundation with breathable-skin medium-to-full buildable coverage that lasts all day and allows the skin to breathe.
It comes in 30 shades with 10 shades for deeper skin tones and I am in the shade 420 pure beige (which is a perfect match for me).
This is a freaking amazing foundation! It’s a satin full coverage foundation that never feels like you are wearing anything. It’s just the perfect drug store foundation. It does need to be set down but that doesn’t take away from the radiance that this foundation has.
Defiantly my favorite foundation find of this year.
Flower Beauty Light Illusion Liquid Foundation $13.99 for 1.01 fluid ounces of product at Ulta and is billed as the perfecting veil of buildable coverage that provides you with the coverage you desire to smooth and perfect, while imparting your skin with the most flattering soft luminosity imaginable. All with a weightless, nude skin feel. Imperfections and uneven skin tone are diminished. Only a flawless, smooth, and incredibly natural complexion is revealed.
It comes in 12 shades with 7 shades for deeper skin tones and I have it in the shade Natural Beige M1 which is a bit too yellow I wish I would have purchased it in the shade L3 Nude because that one seems more on the neutral side … although I can make M1 work with just a hint of my foundation mixers.
Pixi by Petra Flawless Beauty Fluid (discontinued) in the shade No. 3 Warm which is just a tad too warm for me.
This is a very liquidity foundation that has a high medium coverage and a satin finish.
I really don’t hate this one but I also don’t love it either. I could take it or leave it really.
It’s not a bad foundation but it’s also not an amazing one either.
ELF Flawless Finish Foundation .68 fluid ounce for $6 at Ulta and is billed as a lightweight, oil-free formula that is a semi-matte finish that lasts all day long.
It comes in 26 shades with 15 shades for deeper skin tones and I have it in the shade Sand (light/medium with neutral undertones).
This is a high light coverage which can be built up to a medium coverage.
It’s a pretty good foundation. I have no complaints but there isn’t really anything that stands out for this foundation either.
Il Makiage I Woke Up Like This Foundation $44 for 1 fluid ounce of product on their website. It comes in 50 shades with 23 for deeper skin tones and I have it in the shade 040.
It’s billed as a foundation that smooths and evens the skin with an advanced, innovative formula that instantly minimizes the appearance of shadows and pores, effortlessly enhances the complexion and generates a flawless natural matte finish.
This is one of those products that I found on a Tik Tok ad. I reall am glad I tried it out. It’s pretty darn good.
It’s full coverage and I think it’s more of a demi-matte finish.
It’s newer to my collection so I am still developing my final thought on it but so far I really do like it.
Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer $9.99 for 1 fluid ounce of product at Ulta. It comes in 45 shades with 18 shades for deeper skin tones and I have it in the shade 03 light beige which is an OK shade match for me however I have been thinking about getting it in the shade 01A Creamy Nude because the shade I have is a tad warmer than I like.
It’s billed as a foundation that combats under eye circles, redness and other skin imperfections with a medium to full coverage, water-resistant foundation plus concealer in one.
This is my second bottle of this foundation. It use to be my all time favorite foundation but when I tried it again when I did my Full Face of Milani Review I noticed it was a different formula that I still liked but not as much as I use to.
ColourPop No Filter Matte Foundation $12 for 1 fluid ounce of product on their website. It comes in 35 shades with 14 shades for deeper skin tones I have it in the shade Medium 100 (Neutral foundation with peachy undertones for medium skin tones) and is totally the wrong shade for me … I should have purchased it in the shade light 60.
This foundation is billed as oil-free, buildable full coverage foundation was formulated with soft blurring pigments to give you a natural matte finish.
I don’t know I haven’t been blown away by this foundation. It;s just an OK foundation for me … now that could be because of the shade I have it in it’s really orange and just doesn’t flatter me at all.
I don’t know I may have to do another round of declutters to purge some of these foundations that aren’t wowing me and are just the wrong shade for me.
I think this one would be on that chopping block.
Wet n Wild Photo Focus Dewy Foundation $6.49 for .95 fluid ounces of product at Ulta and comes in 14 shades at Ulta and 19 on the Wet n Wild website. At Ulta there are no shades for our ebony goddesses and n the Wet n Wild website there are only 4 shades for deeper skin tones …. (come on Wet n Wild … do better!)
This foundation is billed as being a weightless, super-nourishing foundation that delivers natural, all-day wear. Silky and creamy, coverage is easily buildable from medium to full coverage.
This is a pretty foundation. It’s very liquidity but easy to blend in and has a amazing glow to the skin.
The only thing I don’t like about this foundation (other than the fact that it’s not a deep skin tone friendly brand) is the stupid paddle that it comes with. Every time I use this foundation I get it on my clothes because some will always drop off the paddle’s back end (even when I wipe the paddle on the bottle).
Other than that I do really like this one.
Catrice Cosmetics HD Liquid Coverage Foundation $10.99 for 1.5 fluid ounces of product at Ult and on the Catrice website. It comes in 23 shaded 8 for deeper skin tones and I have the shade 030 Soft Beige (a perfect match for me).
It’s billed as an ultra-lightweight, high coverage foundation for a natural looking finish with 24 hour coverage.
I was super impressed with this foundation and continue to impress me. I have loved this foundation every time I’ve worn it.
It’s a demi-matte foundation that doesn’t set down completely but sets down enough that you really don’t need to powder the face all over just really in the T zone. You also do not need very much of this foundation a few drops is all you really need.
The Balm Even Steven Whipped Foundation $22 for .45 ounces of product on their website.
This foundation comes in 8 shades with 3 for deeper skin tones and I have it in the shade light medium (it has a slight grey undertone that is oddly flattering on the skin).
It’s billed as a light, airy, soufflé-like texture for a natural matte finish. And the ultra- pigmented formula means a little goes a long way.
This foundation feels heavenly! It’s so velvety and doesn’t need to be set with powder.
I was a little taken back when I first received this purchase in the mail because it’s such a tiny little jar… but really it’s so pigmented and such an amazing texture that just a small scoop of this foundation is enough to cover the face , neck, and ears.
I so love this foundation.
ELF BB Cream $6 for 1 fluid ounce on their website. It comes in 7 shades 2 for deeper skin and I have it in the shade Nude (it’s just a hair warmer than I’d like but it’s a bb cream so I can make it work).
This BB Cream is billed as one that blends super easily, giving you a clean complexion with UVA/UVB SPF 20 protection. It’s also infused with cucumber, jojoba, aloe, and vitamin E so your skin stays healthy and hydrated all day long.
The only thing I don’t like about this one is the scent. It has a sort of lemon pledge scent to it.
This is also not a good BB cream for someone with oily skin as this one stays super dewy and I have noticed that on my oily days it breaks down fast even with powdering.
AOA Studios Perfect BB Cream $1 for 1.01 fluid ounces of product on the Shop Miss A website and it comes in 6 shades (2 for light, medium, and deep skin tones) and I have the shade medium.
It’s billed as a lightweight, skin-tone adapting formula, created for the perfect “No Makeup” makeup look. This cream effortlessly blends into the skin and creates a veil-like finish with light to medium coverage.
This is a truly amazing BB cream … in fact I might go as far as to say it’s one of my favorite bb creams.
NYX Born To Glow Naturally Radiant Foundation $10 for 1.01 fluid ounces of product at Ulta and comes in 45 shades with 16 shades for deep skin tones and I have it in the shade Nude (light with neutral undertones).
This foundation is billed as a buildable medium coverage and a naturally radiant finish that lasts.
This is the most beautiful radiant glowing foundation! I though I wasn’t going to like it because there was just too much hype surrounding it … but this is a case where the hype is valid.
This is so pretty on the skin but I did notice I would have to touch up a few times throughout the day.
L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation $12.99 for 1 fluid ounces of product at Ulta and it comes in 12 shades with only 3 shades for deeper skin tones and none of the deep shades are anywhere deep enough for our ebony kings and queens (UGH … Come on L’Oreal get it together!) and I am in the shade 202 Creamy Natural (a spot on shade match).
This foundation is billed as having being up to 24 hour wear with a hydrating glow. Lightweight and creamy, this long lasting foundation goes on smooth with a glow finish that lasts. With medium coverage, it instantly hides imperfections for a clear complexion. The hydrating foundation with SPF is ideal for normal to dry skin.
I was in love with the original Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation but this new one is so much better!
It’s glowy and pretty and full coverage without looking or feeling heavy.
Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation $30 for 1 fluid ounce of product at Ulta and Sephora and comes in 12 shades with 4 shades for light, medium, and deep shades and I am in the shade 4 (medium neutral).
Its’ billed as a medium-coverage satin finished liquid foundation with SPF 15 that feels lightweight, looks natural and is virtually undetectable on skin. Contains photochromic pigments that instantly adapt to brighten skin in any lighting, flower acids to help boost radiance and hyaluronic acid to attract moisture to the skin’s surface and help maintain hydration.
The picture is of a mini travel bottle but I have since purchased the full sized bottle.
This is probably my favorite item that Benefit makes. It’s such a pretty finish. It doesn’t set down at all and does need to be powdered but even with powder it’s radiant and feels like skin.
Joah Truly Yours Natural Finish Foundation Drops $9.50 for 1 fluid ounce of product on their website and it comes in 12 shades with 4 shades for light, medium, and deep skin tones and I have it in the shade Natural Ivory (its a great match for me).
It’s billed as a skin enhancing natural finish foundation perfects your complexion in every way…hydrating, brightening, smoothing, accentuating your youthful glow with a flawless finish that is lightweight with a natural finish.
I love the finish of this one but it is by no means lightweight. I can tell that I’m wearing foundation when I’m wearing this one. I just don’t even mind because it’s just so pretty.
Tarte Maracuja Tinted Moisturizer $29 for 1 fluid ounce of product at Ulta and comes in 20 shades with 5 shades for fair , light, medium, and deep skin tones and I am in the shade 20 N Light Neutral.
It’s billed as an ultra-lightweight & hydrating tinted moisturizer that delivers a sheer wash of color while infusing skin with maracuja superfruit for 12-hour hydration & wear.
I like this one but I have to remember to not use moisturizer when I use this one because I always end up greasy because I forget.
This one doesn’t have the best longevity, I typically get 4 hours of wear out of it before I have to powder the T Zone.
I like it for no makeup days but I don’t like it with makeup … it’s too sheer and almost always looks odd, even when I do a no makeup – makeup look.
Pixi by Petra Beauty Balm $22 for 1.7 fluid ounces of product on their website and it comes in 6 shades (2 for light, medium, and deep skin tones) and I have it in the shade No 2 Nude.
This edium to full coverage foundation is billed as a hydrating and long-lasting formula that contains Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, Adenosine and Chamomile extract to soothe & nourish.
I like this one but it’s nothing special. It doesn’t set down so you will need to powder it but it’s a nice just everyday makeup foundation.
Juvia’s Place I Am Magic Foundation $20 for 1 fluid ounce at Ulta and it comes in 42 shades on the Juvia’s Place website (half of the shades are for deeper skin and the other half are for mid to fair skin tones) and is offered in 35 shades at Ulta with half the shade beign for deeper skin and the other half for mid to fair skin tones. I am in the shade 650 Alexandria (light skin with neutral undertones) and is billed as a a smooth application with a natural and soft matte finish to give a flawless coverage.
This is my newest foundation in my collection.
I reviewed this one in Final Thoughts in my Amber Neutral Eye Face of the Day post but the break down is …. it’s highly pigmented, full coverage and doesn’t emphasize texture or pores. Basically I love this foundation.
Well That’s all for now dolls. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the rest of yoru day/night and that you are in good health and spirits.
Remember dolls … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
