When you build a house, it’s natural to start with the foundation. I figured I’d do the same with this blog. To start, I want to go over a few different foundations that I’ve had good results with, and talk about prices and where you can get them. Please feel free to leave me questions or comments, and let me know if there’s anything I didn’t include that you wish I had.
$$$ – Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation – Priced at $41 a bottle, this is definitely the most expensive foundation I’ve ever worn. It is a medium to full buildable coverage foundation, which is great if you feel like you have a lot you want to cover up. It does last a long time, as advertised, but I don’t love the way it feels on my face. That may just be a personal preference, but it feels really thick to me. It also has SPF, which is great for everyday wear, but it’s not great for pictures, because it causes a glare. There are a lot of pros, but by far, my least favorite thing about this foundation is that there is no pump on the bottle, so you end up wasting a lot. You just have to pour it out onto whatever you’re using to apply it to your face. As expensive as it is, I hate wasting any. I got mine from Macy’s and would rate this a 7 out of 10.
$$ – The Balm Even Steven Whipped Foundation – This is my favorite foundation of the 3. This foundation is $22 per jar, which seems like a lot, because the jar is pretty small. However, you don’t need much at all to cover your face. It goes on smooth and spreads evenly. It’s a medium coverage foundation, and it seems like you may need to go a shade darker than what you would normally buy. For example, I’m pretty fair and generally buy the lightest or second to lightest option available. For this foundation, I originally bought their Lighter than Light, but it was too light for me, so I went with light. Just something to keep in mind when looking at this foundation. One of my least favorite things about it is that, once you’re about halfway through the jar, it gets a little difficult to get out. I got mine from Kohls and would rate it a 9 out of 10.
$ – Covergirl Tru Match Foundation – This is the best drugstore foundation I’ve found, and the best part is, it’s only about $10 or $11 depending on where you get it. It’s a sheer to medium coverage, and looks a lot better when you use a primer underneath. For me, it seems to last a long time, maybe not all day, but close. The bottle design is great, and it’s easy to get the right amount out. Plus, it goes on smoothly and doesn’t feel to thick on my face. I wish it had an SPF, but it’s still really great for everyday wear. I wish it had a little more coverage, but again, use primer or a BB cream underneath, and you shouldn’t have a problem. I get mine from Kroger or Walmart, and I would rate this an 8 out of 10.
I hope this was helpful, and again, feel free to drop me a message if there’s anymore information you’d like.
