My Favorite: Foundations

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation $39
Maybelline Dream Wonder $5.99
Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless $7.99

Let's talk foundations. I feel like I have tried just about every drug store brand of foundation and several of the higher end brands. Due to the hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks, I really need a medium-full coverage formula to feel my best. Below I have listed my top three go-tos! 


_____________________________________________

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation 
shade: deep honey
NYX ClaimsAn oil-free, 12-hour liquid foundation formulated with Amazonian clay and non-chemical sunscreen filters.

My Review: Wanna talk full coverage, here ya go. This formula is legit like a clay mask. I typically use a dime size amount for my whole face. I love that this has spf in it as I never use any in my daily face routine. This is super long wearing 12+ hours and has a mattifying finish. 

How Often Do I Reach For This One: I usually reach for this if I am going out or going full glam with my look. Personally I feel like it is a little over the top for day-to-day wear.

Maybelline Dream Wonder 
shade: 95 coconut
Maybelline ClaimsDream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation gives you a flawless look with an impeccable finish. The breakthrough feature allows you to look natural because it fuses with your skin to make your make-up undetectable.

My Review: great formula, very lightweight. medium coverage and easy to apply. I typically choose this for normal day-to-day wear. This formula doesn't claim to be mattifying but I do feel as though I am not super oily after using it. 

How Often Do I Reach For This One: Just about everyday.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless 
shade: 330 toffee
Maybelline ClaimsFit Me! Matte+Poreless goes beyond skin tone matching to fit the unique texture issues of normal to oily skin for the ultimate natural skin fit. 

My Review: This is another really great everyday easy to apply formula. I love how smooth and perfect my skin looks after applying. I would say that I have to apply two layers to get a medium-full coverage look. 

How Often Do I Reach For This One: This is always my backup. If I am ever out of the dream wonder, I will grab this. This is also what I travel with usually. 


What is your favorite foundation??

  6. I have the Tarte foundation also, but my perfect shade is a mix between two colors so sometimes its really a pain! But my all time favorite is Estee Lauder Double Wear! I also have the Double Wear Light which is like a bb/cc cream that is my daily go to!

  7. I haven't tried that Tarte foundation, BUT my sister and her bestie swear by it. I tend to mix my foundations but by itself I really like the MUFE Mat Velvet.
