15 Days of Foundation

I spent 15 days putting all of my foundations to the test. These will be my descriptions and thoughts on them. (I wore them all day, using smashbox pore minimizing primer beneath. I have dry, porcelain skin.)

I really do like this foundation stick. You get a good amount of product. It seems #lightcoverage to #mediumcoverage to me but is definitely #buildable. Blends nicely. This only dtayed on my skin about 3 hours. The contour side is perfect for #porcelain skin! If your thinking of trying #KKW, if recommend trying this first.

I found this to be a #fullcoveragefoundation. I was not very impressed by this stick. It felt very tacky and clung onto my dry spots. I felt that it exaggerated my fine lines and pores as well. It transferred and did not last long on my face. It lasted about 1.5 hours. I did not set it with powder.

Lorac LORAC POREfection Foundation

I would consider this a #lighttomediumcoverage foundation. For the price of this foundation, I was not impressed. For some reason the bottle I bought was watery or oily. It did feel light weight but also did not offer much coverage for me. It is supposed to be pore minimizing but i felt like it actually exaggerated my pores, i used a pore minimizing primer with this as well. This stayed on my face for about 3.5 hours.

This foundation is not full coverage like it says. I would say #lighttomediumcoverage but buildable. I think the shade range could expand. I got the lightest shade but it is still a bit dark. I mix it with the Rainforest of The Sea concealer and it looks okay. It feels really nice on the skin and doesn't stick to my dry spots. I have large pores and when I tried the foundation without pore minimizing primer it emphasized my pores, but with the primer it looked okay. This stayed on about 5 hours.

BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème

This is a very good #fullcoveragefoundation if applied correctly. I apply with a brush, then go over with a beauty blender to smooth out. It has a thick consistency and kind of an odd smell. It did not stick to my dry patches. It takes a little longer than most foundations to dry down, if you use a setting powder it won't transfer. It stayed on my skim for about 7 hours.

L'Oréal Paris Infallible® Total Cover Foundation
L'Oréal Paris Infallible® Total Cover Foundation

This is hands down the #best #fullcoverage #drugstorefoundation! It has a thick consistency and you can definitely feel it on your face, but it has amazing coverage. If I do not mouosturize before using , it will stick to my dry spots. This stayed on my skin about 4.5 hours

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation
Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation

This is a buildable #mediumcoveragefoundation. It does not feel lightweight but it doesn't feel heavy either. It was not drying to my skin, and did not stick to dry patches on my skin. It blends out very nicely with a brush. The packaging is nice and feels #luxurious. This lasted on my skin around 9 hours.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation
SEPHORA COLLECTION Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation

This is a #lighttomediumcoverage #airbrush foundation. This is the first spray can foundation i have tried. I applied with a beauty blender, and it blends out nicley. It is good for a quick look, but you dont get much product in the can. It did not stick to my dry spots and lasted about 3 hours on my face.

L'Oréal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup SPF 20
L'Oréal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup SPF 20

This is a #lightweight #mediumcoverage foundation. I contains #spf20. I love the way this blends in with a damp beauty blender. It gives your skin a smooth #luminous finish. It did not stick to my dry spots and lasted on my skin for about 5 hours.

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation SPF 15
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation SPF 15

This is a #lightweight #mediumtofullcoverage foundation. Its great because it is #spf15. It did oxodize a bit on my skin. It did not seem to srick to my dry patches.It stays on my skin about 6 hours.

This is definitely a #fullcoverage foundation as advertised. The #variety of shades is amazing. It does take a while to dry down and does transfer. It feels a little heavy. It did not oxidize on my skin, and lasted about 6 hours.

Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation
Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation

This is a #fullcoverage foundation as advertised. There is a wide #variety of shades to choose from, which is nice. This product does feel a little heavy on the face. I find it best applies with a brush. It did cling to my dry spots. It also took some time to dry down, and once it dried, it oxidized a little orangey. It did stay on for about 10 hours.

I personally did not like this #marcjacobsremarcable foundation. I can say it was definitely #fullcoverage but it would not dry down. It clung to my dry spots. It #transfers badly, and when used with setting powder looks #cakey . This stayed on my face for about 6 hours.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Foundation
MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Foundation

Love this! I feel that the coverage would be considered #lightcoverage to #mediumcoverage with this foundation . It is very #lightweight in my opinion. I wear it on days I'm going for the "no makeup" makeup look. It does not oxidize on my skin. I apply with a damp beauty blender and it lasted about 9 hours.

Too Faced Born This Way Medium-to-Full Coverage Foundation
Too Faced Born This Way Medium-to-Full Coverage Foundation

I really do love this #toofaced #bornthisway #foundation. I find it to be medium but buildable coverage. I think it blends out best with a damp beauty blender. I like that there are so many shades to choose from. Even with the pore minimizing primer, I do feel like it exaggerates my pores. It lasted on my face for about 6 hours.
