Foundation Reviews - STAGE TWO

2016-03-31 15:27:45

Happy Thursday ladies! So here is part two on our blog post for foundations. Grab the cup of tea, and enjoy! heart

5) Rimmel Match Perfection

So to say the least, myself & Noelle are big fans of Rimmel! Especially their foundations. Noelle found the Match Perfection to be perfect for everyday. Its medium to full coverage, and has a dewy finish. She found it lasted great, but just be cautious that you get the right shades. They don't tend to have a lot of colours to choose from, but her favourite was soft beige! Available in any pharmacies that stock Rimmel, and the price is the best part :  9.99!!!! Where would you be going?!

6) Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 HR

So this foundation I myself LOVED. I was so shocked at how good it was considering the price! 10.29!! So I found the coverage medium to full, didn't feel heavy on my skin, and blended so well. Thats one of the things I liked so much, you didn't have to be quick with this foundation. You could slowly put it on, and it wouldn't get blotchy. Lasted all through the day and didn't need any touching up, aside from a little powder half way through the day! Like the previous foundation, available in any phramacies nationwide that stock Rimmel.

7) Stila Stay All Day

This particular foundation I have mixed reviews about. Firstly, I reviewd this foundation last year, and got on fantastic with. However, for some reason I feel like they changed the ingredients? I bought it again a few weeks ago to give it a second go, and wasn't impressed at all. It went on lovely to begin with, and looked gorgeous on the skin. Didn't feel to heavy which I liked. As an hour or two passed, it started to get patchy looking between my eyebrows. To be fair, I look after my skin religiously, so it wasn't a fault on my part. When Noelle tried this foundation, it was the same story. Except Noelle's chin went extremly patchy and the foundation started flaking off it! Noelle even gave it a second chance, and the same story. I was sooo dissapointed with this for 2 reason. 1; I loved it last year. Looked lovely, photographed lovely and I really like it! 2; For the price of 39.50, it so wasn't worth it.
I really don't know what happened this time around, but this just wasn't a foundation for us!


8) Inglot HD

So this foundation, is a favourite of ours! It is full coverage, matte finish and lasts ALL day! It blends very easily, however you DO need the matching primer to go underneath. I find it goes on patchy/blotchy without it, and this is the Inglot Under Make Up Base Primer. It photographs beautifully and doesn't have a white flashback in photos! Available in all inglot stores for 33.


9) Inglot Stick Foundation

Biggest waste of money!! These should be renamed as 'contour sticks' because thats about all they are good for. You can't blend them and get into creases because they obviously don't bend, so they are awkward to work with. I also feel like they are so overpriced! For 33 (same as HD) they so not worth it!

10) Fuschia Moisture Complex

Complete dupe of Inglot HD! Full coverage, glides on easily, and has a semi matte finish. The only downside is that it does feel heavy on the skin, but none the less great for 'night out' make up. Plus, did I mention its a little bit cheaper than Inglot?! Its 25, and available at Aoife Garrihy Beauty!

11)  Estee Lauder Double Wear - Light

So this one I had high hopes for. Firstly, its DEFINITELY a lot lighter on the skin than the original double wear. Blends so much easier, and doesn't feel cakey. Unfortunately it doesn't have the same coverage as the original, but it does have the lasting power. So a thumbs up from us, but we wish it did have a little bit more coverage! 38 available from all Estee Lauder stockists (Rochford's in Ennis).

So thats a wrap for now ladies, hope you enjoyed those blog posts on foundations!
