Review: Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

27 Jul

A lasting creme foundation does it really last?

Review: I like the consistency of this foundation something between a solid creme and liquid foundation like lotion. Now this foundation states that it is long-lasting and since my skin is oily it could cause me to look like a oil slick at the end of the day. And well my face does end up like an oil slick if I didn’t use powder to set the foundation but the foundation does last for 12+ hours. Plus for those days where I am going everywhere my face to look fresh at the end of it. So this foundation does last long, coverage is medium and it has a really nice smell. There is a good shade selection but it could be difficult to decide because the foundation in the tube looks darker then when it is blended out on the skin.

Cost: $8.99CDN

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those looking for a long lasting foundation but be careful about selecting a shade.

Review: Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily Skin

24 Jul

The ever popular foundation used on Youtube and the most loved I suppose. Sorry for the flash and my shade is in Sand Beige.

Review: I have not as much experience with foundation as most people would have if they were a makeup artist but I have learned. This was my first liquid foundation and man was it hard to determine what foundation technique I should use with it. I ended up doing the stippling method, foundation brush, and the sponge method never liking any of them but the stippling method (but it was a pain to clean the brush takes 2 days for it to fully dry). Even though this foundation was pretty much liquid it gave the coverage required (medium to full) and worked as all those people on Youtube have said. Drugstores do have a good range of colours for people of different skin tones and this colour matched me really well. For the oily skin formula it did control oil a bit but at the end of the day you look like you have a sort of healthy glow due to the oil. Things I didn’t like about it was that it could get very thick and cakey especially in the summer. I like the natural feeling where you can’t feel the foundation on your face but this just wasn’t one of them.

Cost: $15 – 19CDN wherever available

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this for those oily people in the wintertime (who likes wearing a full face of makeup in the summer?) . Though for me I would only reserve this foundation for special events (full coverage) and wintertime.
