Makeup Collection: Foundations

Hello everyone!

I am back with another installment of my makeup collection series. I am going to be going in the order of which I apply my makeup; so next up are my foundations.

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation:
This foundation is my all time favourite foundation, and I use it near enough every day. It's really full coverage and lasts all day without even looking the slightest bit different. I am so said because the tube that I am using at the moment is almost empty, but luckily I have a back up bottle ready to crack open. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation:
I am a huge fan of the original Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation so I recently picked up the Breathale version to try. I wasn't really sure what to expect as a do like a full coverage look and this is described as a medium coverage, but I was pleasantly surprised. It feels a lot lighter on the skin than the original foundation does, and it can be built up to a really nice coverage too. The applicator is a bit different for a foundation but I actually do like it for dotting the foundation around my skin. All in all I really do like this and I think I will be adding it to my travel makeup bag:)

Milani Conceal & Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation & Concealer:
If you are after a really full coverage foundation that is half the price of the Kat Von D foundation then this is definitely the foundation for you! This is the most full coverage drugstore foundation that I own, and it is very similar to the Kat Von D foundation- both in consistency, coverage and longevity. Milani is primarily an American drugstore brand but thankfully it's available on Beauty Bay here in the UK. My tube is nearly empty so I must buy another one, or two, very soon!

GOSH Foundation Drops:
I do like a thicker consistency when it comes to foundation as that is the type of foundation which is going to stay put on your face all day, but this one is completely at the other end of the scale. It is very watery and lightweight, but it does still have a nice coverage to it. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing foundation when I wear this. It is a medium coverage foundation with just one layer but when you add a second layer it is definitely full coverage, and also a very dewy finish too. I do find myself applying powder throughout when I wear this as it's thinner consistency means that it can slide around just a little, so this definitely isn't going to see you through a 12 hour day, but it is okay if you only wear makeup for a few hours per day. 

GOSH Foundation Plus+:
I haven't really used this foundation all that much so it is definitely one that I need to try out a little bit more. From what I can remember this is a medium coverage foundation which blends out quite effortlessly. I do think that this is on the pricier side considering the bottle is very small, and you do need to use that little bit extra if you want a more fuller coverage. I definitely wouldn't use this on a daily basis or I would go through so many bottles! 

MUA Skin Define Matte Perfect Foundation:
This is the most affordable foundation in my makeup collection at the moment. It does tend to oxidise on me a little throughout the day, but when I first apply this it looks really nice. It doesn't have the most coverage in the world but I like this when I don't want a really heavy makeup look as it does make my skin look good, but it still looks like my skin at the same time. With a little bit of concealer this foundation can look really great. 

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation:
When I was adding the link of this foundation to this blog post I noticed that this foundation seems a little more expensive than usual. It is £33.50 on the Debenhams website, and I'm pretty sure that it has went up by a pound or so. I haven't used this foundation in a little while as I have been using my Kat Von D foundation, but I used to use this all of the time. There is only a tiny bit of foundation left in this bottle but I definitely need to get this out a bit more because I forget how much I love this sometimes. It's got a great coverage, a little less than the Kat Von D, but I like that because it looks natural but flawless at the same time. It's also mattifying and I find that this is one of the very few foundations where I don't need to apply any powder throughout the day. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation:
I mentioned the breathable version of this foundation earlier on in this post, and now I am going to be talking about the original version which I have been using for such a long time now. Compared to the other foundation, this is a little heavier on the skin but it still doesn't feel uncomfortable to wear. It has the exact same consistency to the other foundation and it pretty much has the same level of coverage too. 

LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation:
This has got to be the most illuminating foundation I own, which normally I wouldn't like. I do usually like a matte foundation but ever since I discovered this I was completely converted. This is perfect in the Summer time, and was my go to foundation on holiday last year, as it gives me such a healthy glow which looks really natural. The shade is a little dark for all year round use but it's perfect for when I'm on holiday and I'm a little bit more tanned, and I can always use a foundation lightener too:)

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation:
I must admit that the packaging of this foundation is a tad cheap looking for a Maybelline foundation. It's not an expensive foundation but I hate foundations that are in cheap looking tubes. This foundation is a fuller coverage although the formula is very runny, which means it gets all over the place whilst I'm trying to screw the lid back onto the tube. A pump bottle would be so much easier but I don't let that effect my opinion of this foundation too much. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Foundation:
The Collection Lasting Perfection concealer is one of my all time favourite concealers as it is really high coverage and looks amazing, especially on the under eyes, so you would think that the matching foundation would be just as great. When I first got this foundation I thought that it would be just like the foundation but unfortunately it just didn't live up to expectations for me. I have kept this in my makeup collection as I wanted to give it a second chance, but I think I may just pass it on to someone else who likes a more natural looking foundation and therefore will enjoy it a bit more than me. 

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation:
Last but not least; the Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. I have been using this ever since I started wearing makeup many years ago (don't worry though, it's not the same tube!). I love the mousse consistency of this as it's really easy to blend over the face, offers a good coverage and is really lightweight. I think I want to start using this foundation more often as I really enjoyed it back in the day, and it works perfectly with my Holy Grail powder; the Rimmel Stay Matte.

So, those are all of my foundations I own at the moment! Do you own any of these? What do you think of them? 


Until next time,
