So, here we are with another #theSOproject post and this week's theme is foundation. Being a foundation junkie, this post has been one of my favourites to write. I missed out on last week's post because the theme was concealer, and I only use one concealer. I'm don't experiment with concealer too much, but with foundation, I'll try almost everything.
Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation - £8.99
When I was just beginning in makeup, this foundation was a staple in my makeup bag. It's a drugstore foundation which is cheap for the quality. This product is said to have small radiance pearls, which means it gives off a healthy glow but doesn't make you look like a walking glitter ball, which is always good! This is a good foundation for a beginner, as it has a light coverage and looks very natural.
Rimmel Match Perfection foundation - £6.99
If you have fairer skin and still want a light coverage drugstore foundation, I'd always recommend this one. This is one of the only drugstore foundations that do very light shades for fairer skin. The formulation is great, and doesn't look too cakey on the skin. It also comes with a pump - something high end foundations should learn from!
Olay Complete Care Touch of Foundation - £9.99
I would describe this product best as a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. This is probably the lightest coverage I've seen in a 'foundation' and just basically adds a bit of colour and covers a tiny amount of redness. I have had this product for years, and still have tonnes left as you hardly need any product at all. It also has an SPF of 15 which is great for summer! It is great for almost all skin types as I mainly use it as a tinted moisturizer.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum - £10.99
This is my all-time favourite drugstore foundations. This, again, has a light to medium coverage but smells absolutely gorgeous, which makes it feel like a luxury to put on. The formula of this is quite liquidy and light. When it is applied, it looks very dewy on the skin but it does slightly cling to drier skin. It lasts a long time, and cannot praise this serum enough!
MAC Studio Fix Fluid - £21.50
Now onto my absolute holy grail foundation. If you're not too bothered about price, but are more concerned about quality, definitely try out this product. This is a medium to heavy coverage, but still doesn't feel to heavy on the skin. Yet again, this clings to dry skin, but if you exfoliate and moisturize thoroughly, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. The shade range is amazing, and covers everything from freckles to red areas and blemishes. My only grumble with this foundation is the fact that you have to buy the pump for an extra £3.50.
