top 10 foundations.

02.22.2018

 

Here are my TOP 10 Favorite Foundations as of February 2018 - my skin type is normal to combination. I have to blot my nose once or twice a day with ANY foundation no matter what primer or powder I use.

 

I’ll list my favorite way to apply, what coverage, finish, wear and price. WEAR RATING=longevity, oil control, settling into fine lines/wrinkles, etc. On a scale from 1 to 5 with 1 being the worst and 5 being bomb.

 

10. Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Foundation 

Perfect for a “no makeup” day! Evens out skin tone and wears well throughout the day when powdered! 

 

Apply: Brush 

Coverage: Sheer to light

Finish: Natural 

Wear: 4

Price: $36.00

 

 

9. IT Cosmetics Your Skin but Better CC Cream 

Fool Proof for all ages. Buildable coverage. Anti-Aging ingredients and SPF are a plus! Not for oily skin IMO. Blotting and powdering are a must!

 

Apply: Brush or Beauty Blender

Coverage: Light 

Finish: Natural

Wear: 3

Price: $38.00

8. BareMinerals Matte Loose Powder Foundation

Great for you powder foundation gals out there who want a little bit more coverage. Doesn’t seem to keep my T-Zone as matte as I would like for a “matte” foundation but still beautiful either way! Less is more with this one.

 

Apply: Brush (dense)

Coverage: Medium

Finish: Matte

Wear: 4

Price: $29.00

 

7. Sephora Collection Matte Perfection Powder Foundation 

The most natural powder foundation I have found yet! More “affordable” than most. Shade range is impressive too! Easy to blot then touch back up throughout the day. Love that it is a pressed powder unlike my previous choice.

 

Apply: Brush

Coverage: Light to Medium

Finish: Semi-Matte

Wear: 5

Price: $20.00

6. Maybelline Super Stay 24HR Full Coverage Foundation

Beautiful satin finish! Can settle into fine lines if you’re not careful, so beauty blender is best! Can’t skip the blotting and powder for more oilier areas! Tends to break up if not. 

 

Apply: Beauty Blender

Coverage: Medium to Full 

Finish:Satin/Semi-Matte

Wear: 4

Price: $11.99

5. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk

Love/Hate relationship with this one. BEAUTIFUL finish. Not for long hours of wear but a solid 6 hours is obtainable! Price SUCKS so this one is for nicer events only instead of an every day foundation. 

 

Apply: Brush or Beauty Blender

Coverage: Full

Finish: Luminous AF

Wear: 3

Price: $64.00

​4. L’OREAL 24HR Pro-Matte 

Ideal for oily skin. Beauty Blender prevents the cake face look unless that’s what you’re going for… then lather it up with a brush. High End coverage with the drugstore price! 

 

Apply: Beauty Blender

Coverage: full

Finish: Matte

Wear: 5

Price: $12.99

3. ​Maybelline FIT ME Matte + Poreless 

A staple in any girl’s makeup collection. Fool proof and never fails me! Although the matte finish, it doesn’t combat oils well so blotting and powder will be your BFF in oiler areas. That price though…

 

Apply: Brush 

Coverage: Medium to Full

Finish: Matte

Wear: 4

Price: $7.99

2. Too Faced Born This Way

The foundation I wore for my wedding day. I get the most compliments on my skin when wearing this one! Since it is a more radiant finish, you’ve got to be careful with your oils. With the right primer and powder though,  you’ve go the most perfect base.

 

Apply: Brush or Beauty Blender 

Coverage: Medium to Full

Finish: Natural/Radiant

Wear: 4 

Price: $39.00

​1. Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation Stick

MUFE is one of my most favorite brands for foundations. If you want full coverage and a FLAWLESS finish, look no further. Just add it to your cart already. Creamier consistency makes a beauty blender the ideal applicator. 

 

Apply: Beauty Blender 

Coverage: FULL ASS 

Finish: Satin/Semi-Matte

Wear: 5

Price: $43.00

 

Hope you enjoyed my mini review of my TOP 10 Foundations! Let us know if your favorite made the list?!
