In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new affordable cruelty free brand on the market – The Ordinary! Though mainly known for their skincare (which I’ve also been loving btw!), they recently blew the makeup world away by introducing what they call “Colours,” aka Foundations! There is a Serum Foundation and a Coverage Foundation – both setting you back less than $7 per 30mL bottle!!! How great can a $7 foundation actually be? Let’s just stick with the Serum Foundation for today. So, keep on reading to hear my thoughts with before and after photos about The Ordinary’s new Serum Foundation!
***Quick Note on Cruelty Free Status: Deciem (The Ordinary’s parent company) has entered into a “partnership” with Estee Lauder. To read the details, check out the Founder’s letter about the “marriage” here. In my eyes, Deciem remains cruelty free, but this is up to you to decide.
NYX has brought out what I initially thought was a less expensive version of the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops – a “coverage drop” that can be mixed with a product of your choosing to amp up the coverage. However after a bit more research and actually trying this new dropper foundation – which is all that it is, not a mixing agent – I can honestly say they have very little in common beyond the dropper bottle packaging. Though I do love the Custom Cover Drops, I may just like the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation even more! 😍 Let’s just get into the who, what, when, where, why of it, shall we? 😜
I’ve been wanting to review the Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation for quite a while now, but I just couldn’t wrap my head around how I feel about it. I’m still waffling a bit, but I think I can do a decent job of at least explaining the pros and cons sprinkled with a bit of why I’m torn. At this point, I feel like everyone in the world has already reviewed this, but I wanted to give it a fair shot before penning my thoughts. So, the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation. Worth a go?
Certainly my most used, and probably most loved, concealers are the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer and the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. They also seem to be two of the most discussed and loved concealers around these days. They’re both great, but there are definitely differences between the two. I thought today we’d go through a comparison of these 2 much-loved concealers in the hopes that maybe you can determine which would be better for you!
As you may recall I’ve been testing out the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation for a good chunk of time now. I was on the fence in my prior post, but I think I’m ready to do a full review. As I said before, I really want to love this foundation. If you’re curious how I’m feeling after almost 2 months of trying it out, keep on reading! 🙂
Among the many new releases from Milani (see the line up here) is the Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation and Concealer. Always hunting for the perfect foundation, I was really excited to test out this new cruelty free drugstore foundation! It was a long hard search to find this stuff and wow was it hard to determine a shade once I did! J In stores they seem to be carrying 7 of the 14 shades available (all are available on Milani’s website). Though the bottle seems to be perfectly clear glass, the shade of the product inside seems quite deceiving. I found the best way to see the most accurate version of the foundation was to look at the bottom of the bottle. So, deciding on two shades, 01 Creamy Vanilla and 03 Light Beige, I set about the testing process and now feel I can share my results with you!
