CoverFX Pressed Mineral Foundation Review

I’ve been using this foundation for the past few weeks and it’s my absolute favourite right now.  If you’re skin is slightly greasy from whatever moisturizer you wear, topped with some sort of sunscreen, like I do, you want something that’s going to absorb the excess shiny-ness a bit but also give you some coverage […]

Dior DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation

This @DiorMakeup foundation is now a classic – not that it’s not available but because it’s been available for so long and it’s awesome. Although it used to be available in just 4 colours, now it’s available in 11 with even a deep option.  You literally need to press the spray for 2 seconds, and […]

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Review

This moisturizer picks up where all the others left off. While some feel too heavy or too much like actual foundations, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer literally melts into my skin when I was putting it on. The texture is that soft. The other thing that this tint has going for it is that it’s […]

Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation Review

It’s been a minute since I tried a Nars foundation, and then at Sephora I swatched their latest Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, and I was reminded of why I love Nars so much.  Not only is the foundation offering variable coverage, but the shade range is awesome.  There are light colours, and the medium/dark shades […]

This year, Maybelline relaunches their Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation.  Ever since finishing up my bottle of the Fit Me matte foundation, I’ve been a fan of Maybelline foundations.  They offer them in skin-true colours and I’ve managed to find shades at look real on my skin.
