Revlon Age Defying Firming + Lifting Foundation Review

I haven’t reviewed very many drugstore foundations on this site – truth be told, I’m picky about foundations because I want them to match my skin exactly… and I want them to last a long time on my oily skin.  I’ve found that it’s just too difficult to find a foundation at the drugstore, but […]

New Shu Uemura Lightbulb Foundation

Shu Uemura is known for their cleansing oils – the huge bottles are saviours when it comes to removing makeup, and I use my cleansing oil daily. The luxury brand has even gone on to incorporate oils into some of their other products (hair, for example), and now they’ve gone on to incorporate it into […]

Sayuki Foundation Update

… so a little while ago, I posted a little bit about Sayuki foundation – which I still think is the holy grail of foundations just because its colour-matching can’t be beat.  I’ve recommended the foundation to everyone I know, but with the following caveats: – if you have oily skin, this foundation may not […]

IT Cosmetics 02 Ultra-Repair Liquid Oxygen Foundation Review

I’ve come to the conclusion that if it says “Oxygen” on the bottle, I want it. First there was Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation and now there’s IT Cosmetics 02 Ultra-Repair Liquid Oxygen Foundation. What makes both these oxygen foundations great is that they give your skin a dewy look that’s not too heavy […]

Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup Foundation Review

… in the weeks before the holidays really begin (you know, the parties and such) I go on a mission to find the perfect foundation.  This means that not only does it need to match my skin-tone perfectly, but it also has to be truly long-wearing, and needs to look absolutely flawless in pictures with […]

New! Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Mineral Foundation Review

A good powder foundation has a lot going for it – it’s easy to apply and you can usually play with the coverage more easily than with a liquid. The new Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation with SPF 10 delivers smooth silky skin with just a few brushes of the accompanying powder. The pigments […]
