Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation SPF 42 PA+++

I absolutely love this formula for the summer. It's sheer but still covers redness. The SPF makes going out of the house a breeze. I have found that the waterproof for 80 minutes isn't all its cracked up to be. A good 30 minutes, but after that the sun and sweat break it down faster.

I have a few trial sized bottles of this foundation and I've fallen in love with it. I have the lightest shades I00 and B00 and they blend amazingly into my skin, evening out any redness or discoloration. I can see myself buying a full size bottle, but the tester bottles I have are going a long way.

I have recently started using this foundation and find the formula a bit thick and hard to blend. I do have a shade that will be better suited for my winter complexion. I will give it a try for the center of my face when I want an extreme highlight effect.

Radiant Fluid Foundation SPF 24

This is another foundation I received from work. I didn't know how I would like it at first. This product blends nicely for a sheer coverage foundation. I have shade WB20 and so far it will work great for a summer foundation, since this is darker than most of my other brands.

This foundation appears to be a think creme style foundation in the pot. Once applied it becomes a more powdery texture. I find that applying this with a brush is the best way to go, a sponge picks up too much product. I would prefer a pump to the pot, but a little product goes along way. I used the product from the lid for the first 2-3 applications of this foundation.

Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ WetForce

I received this foundation from work as a freebie. I fell in love with this the first time I used it. The coverage is amazing for a BB and the WetForce tech is great for the summer on the boat or just anytime outside.

Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20

I have found that this foundation can be very sheer, so it will be a great summer, no-makeup makeup look foundation. This formula easily covers the redness on my cheeks and blends nicely into my jaw line and forehead so I don't need to apply a full face of foundation.

Shiseido UV Protective Stick Foundation

I purchased this recently for a summer trip to California. I was looking for a foundation that will be easy to travel with, provide good coverage if needed, and an SPF is a must in the sun. This foundation stick does just that. The coverage can be sheer or full coverage with ease. Easily blend-able, even without primer. So far no issues with the SPF not preforming as designed.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

I was skeptical with this foundation. I had never purchased an expensive foundation until NARS. After purchasing this product I fell in love with it. The foundation blends and covers flawlessly every time. It was so easy to cover the redness and even out my skin town with ease.

I have purchased this foundation in 2 shades and both shades look exactly the same once applied. I have shade l1 and l3, both blend very easily and smoothly. Both shades blended and provided sheer to medium coverage. This product is very build-able to a medium coverage foundation. I enjoy the packaging, but the plastic cap could use some work. I find it does not fit correctly and gets foundation on the inside of the cap every time.

Almay Smart Shade CC Cream

I've bought this foundation with high hopes. Shortly after trying to apply this I lost all hope. I was hoping for something with a bit more color. I was trying to color correct some redness on my cheeks and this DID NOT do the job like I expected. Very disappointed in this product.

Maybelline Fit Me® Matte + Poreless Foundation

I found this foundation at my local drug store. I was weary at first, never having luck with drug store foundations before. I use the lightest shade offered in the matte formula. I love the finish and the consistency of this foundation. I would compare it to my Kat Von D Foundation for the finish.

Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation

I have been using this foundation for over 2 years. I have found the perfect shade on the first go. I use this foundation 1 pump at a time, mostly mixed with a moisturizer or primer. 1 pump goes a long way with this foundation, it is VERY full coverage.
