my foundation collection

Holy Molly! I just realised how many foundations I actually own. Okay this is scary. One face doesn't really need 10 foundations, but I just can't help myself, foundations are my favourite things to try out. I already have a list of foundations I want to try out next, if you have any recommendation of medium coverage, dewy finish foundation, please let me know.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation: The Studio Fix Fluid will be forever my favourite! The colour match is great, works so well with my skin. The coverage is medium, but once it dries out you can build it up to full coverage. I will soon update you with a full review.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation: I have mention this foundation, quite a few times on my blog. I do still like it, but mixed with other foundations. Apparently it's very similar to Giorgio Armani, but I have never tried any GA foundations, yes they are on my wish list. You can read my thought on the True Match here.
L'Oreal Nude Magique Foundation: Haven't used it lately, just because the coverage is a lot more lighter and the texture is really runny. I love to wear it during the summer, as it goes along with the heat. More indept review is over here.
Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation: Ahh this is my true love! I can't express how much love I have for this foundation! My all time favourite summer foundation, I think this is my second or third bottle. It's so tiny, so you can easily take it on holiday with you. Again the review is over here.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: Winter favourite, I call this a full coverage foundation, although it's a medium coverage foundation. I love how long it lasts on the skin, does make the skin look slightly cakey, when you just apply too much. I really wish it would come with a pump, that would be so much easier.
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream: My first ever CC Cream, so I can't really compare it to others. I wonder if all CC Cream are so light weight, but have such a great coverage. It's very similar to the Foundation, but more watery in the formula.
Dior Star Foundation: I can't say much about this foundation just yet, as it's fairly new to my collection and I only used it three times so far, but I do really like it.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation: I don't really know what to say, I have a love hate relationship with the Silk Creme Foundation. Sometimes it looks so flawless on my skin, but on the other day it just sits on my pores and looks really bad. I do love the coverage, but I think I need to work out which primer would be perfect for it.
Chanel Vitalumiere Compact Foundation: Ehh I could say it's £40 of waste! Looks so bad on my skin, it's really thick. Very yellow on the skin, I much more prefer the liquid version. I will try to give it another go, as it did cost a lot of money.
Bourjouis 123 Perfect Foundation: I am currently using this on daily basic, as I am trying to use it up, I do really like the way it looks on my skin, the colour match is perfect. It's very light on the skin, blends really well. Lasts around 6hours on the skin.

What are your favourite foundations? Have you tried any foundation I've mention above? After having a read about my current foundation collection, are there any foundations you would recommended me to try out?

    1. I agree with you, that why I only can wear mine during hotter months, when my skin is slightly tanned, as the lightest shade is slightly too dark x

  5. I don't have a massive collection of foundations, I just have 3 at the moment; No.7 Beautifully Matte (my regular every day one), MAC studio fix (for when I have a bit of a tan) and Estee Lauder Doublewear max cover (for when I need extra coverage)

  7. Love your collection! I just recently bought the Estee Lauder double wear and In love (although, I feel like it is a bit pore clogging for me). I'm still trying to find some good foundations as I can never seem to find any that match my skin colour properly, I have such strong yellow undertones :(
