Three Foundations | Reviews

Hello again!
Today I thought I would post a foundation review as over a space of time I have bought three different foundations to try as I would like to find one that I like and suits my skin! 
I am one of those people who start using a product but never finish it as I have bought a new one that I want to try! 

The first foundation I have is the Maybelline ' Super Stay Better skin' foundation in the colour 005 light beige. The price of this foundation is £8.99 and can be bought from Superdrug or Boots.
On the bottle there are claims that the product 'Evens skin tone instantly' and 'Better looking skin in 3 weeks'.
After using this foundation for the first time, I did notice my skin looked smoother and more even. Although I can't say that it made my skin look better after 3 weeks.
I like the coverage of this foundation as it covers any spots I have  but leaves my skin slightly shiny and doesn't last all day, this could be because the bottle does state 'normal skin' but I have combination/oily.
The next foundation I have is the Rimmel 'Match perfection' in the colour 100 ivory. The foundation is £6.99 and can be bought
from Superdrug and Boots
This foundation states 'Traceless coverage with advanced smart tone technology for perfectly flawless skin under any light'. 
With this foundation I have noticed that in some lights it looks perfect for my skin tone but in others it looks a little orange, however I love the coverage and has quite a nice smell to it and have found that it does last for most of the day!

The last foundation I have is the Collection 'Lasting perfection foundation in the colour 1 porcelain. The foundation is £5.99 and can also be bought from Superdrug and Boots
This product doesn't have any big claims but does state that it 'lasts up to 16 hours', 'flawless coverage' and 'minimises imperfections'. I really wanted to like this product as I thought it was going to be really good, I used it a couple of times before realising that the colour was way too dark for my skin tone! Even though the colour that I have is the lightest that they do in this foundation I could only wear this after I had a spray tan which was disappointing so won't be buying again unfortunately!

All of these foundations have a pump applicator which I find really handy and all contain 30ml of the product. 

What foundation do you like to use?

  2. Great reviews! I agree with the collection one I've used it and agree with your points! Abi :)

  3. Lovely review! I actually don't use foundation, as I don't wear make-up that often, but those look quite awesome! xx

  4. After I tried bunch of BB creams and foundations I can definitely say that Rimmel is my favourite!

  5. I love the Revlon Colorstay, L'Oreal True match, and Flower foundation by Drew Barrymore if we are talking all drugstore. Right now I'm using BB creams mostly for summer and those are the Garnier BB and the Rimmel stay matte BB. Both are great too!
    Loved this post.

  6. I often use Rimmel foundation because their lightest shade 'light porcelain' is perfect for me, i love both the match perfection and the 25 hour wear foundations by them! xo

  7. Lovely post, i used to swear by Rimmel foundations! I love the Bourjois healthy mix :D
