Foundation | Makeup Declutter 18/19

Foundation Before

I’ve got so into foundations recently! They’re becoming the favourite part of my makeup routine and I’ve found some true favourites out there and some real misses and thought I would share with you what I kept and what I decluttered!


L’Oreal True Match Foundation | I actually LOVE this foundation, but unfortunately my skin doesn’t react well to this foundation. In fact it brings me out in little spots. So, really sadly I had to part ways with this foundation

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation | I love this foundation for Summer, it was one of my favourites. However, it’s pretty much empty, and I couldn’t see the point in keeping hold of it till next Summer

Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation | I hate this foundation… like really hate. In fact, I think it’s one of the worst foundations I’ve ever tried

No.7 Lift & Luminate Foundation | This is a good foundation, and when I first tried it, I really enjoyed it… however I’ve discovered so many foundations I love more since trying this, that it just doesn’t get the use

Max Factor Skin Harmony Foundation | You know I haven’t used this foundation for months, so I don’t even remember what I think about it, but it also means I really won’t miss it!

Barry M All Night Long Foundation | Much like the primer, this feels so greasy on the skin and really doesn’t look great…

NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation | I love this foundation, it’s a great all round foundation that has good coverage, a beautiful satin finish and it lasts really well

Max Factor Face Finity Foundation | This is hands down my favourite foundation. I’ve been using this foundation for years and it works really really well for me! The colour match is perfect and it’s just perfect!

Primark My Perfect Colour Foundation | This is actually a surprisingly good foundation! It doesn’t have a pump (which is really annoying) and it is a really thick formula. However, the formula is this foundation is actually super impressive!

EX1 Foundation | Another great foundation, this is one of those super easy foundations to use. It blends really well and lasts well

Dior Face & Body Foundation | Hands down my most expensive foundation… (well I think the IT CC cream is more, but this is a foundation) this is so not my colour, however the coverage of this foundation is seriously impressive. I find it does break down on my nose, but most foundations do…

Foundation After

NYX Total Control Drops | I actually just finished this foundation up, so it’s actually decluttered now, but not out of choice. This is basically the dupe for the Dior Face and Body which is actually better than the Dior foundation….

IT CC Cream | This has recently become my favourite base product ever! It’s super lightweight, so easy to apply, has surprisingly high coverage and lasts really well on the skin!

Collection Primed & Ready BB Cream | This is actually a really nice BB cream. If you want something to just gently even out the skintone, then this is PERFECT, but it doesn’t have the highest coverage.

Collection Lasting Perfection Foundation | Still trying this one out, but the review came out the day before this one!

Maybelline Superstay Foundation | This is a beautiful super high coverage, as in so high coverage! It comes in so many shades and actually does look really nice on the skin. I don’t find it the longest lasting foundation, however it’s a beautiful foundation

L’Oreal Infallible Foundation Stick | This is like my quick and easy, I want a foundation but can’t really be bothered spending ages blending it out foundation. It has decent coverage, and wears nicely, but it’s just so quick and easy to apply

What’s your favourite foundation?

  1. Really want to try the IT cosmetics one, especially now after reading your comments on it! will have to look at getting it at some point! x

    1. It’s sooo goood – just be cautious if you ask for the lightest shade you actually get it. I ask for the lightest shade and got ‘light’ when ‘fair’ is the lightest shade 😛

  2. I’m shocked that I haven’t tried any of these foundations. That’s odd since I have buckets of makeup. To be fair though, my Waterloo is lip products!

    I’ll have to give some of the “approved” ones a go, especially since most of them seem affordable!
