Foundation Frenzy


Over the last year or so my foundation collection has grown astronomically!  I have a bit of an obsession I think, so in todays post I thought I would share with you the foundations that I just can’t get enough of.  So sensing that this may be a mighty long post I’ll jump straight into it.

First up is I would probably say the catalyst of my obsession, it’s Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 4.5 – I first purchased this when I was in Hong Kong as it was a hell of a lot cheaper than in Australia!  I got back to my hotel room and immediately slapped it on my face and boy oh boy did I fall in love.  It’s just beautiful coverage with a nice glowy finish yet for my ridiculously oily skin it does not look shiny.  I only need a small amount of this to get great coverage and it last all darn day.  So after this beautiful first application I headed back to the mall and purchased another bottle as a back up.  Next up is a new discovery and at a much lower price point, its the L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Matte in Rose Beige – I had seen this all over instagram when it first came out in the US and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it when it finally came to Australia!  I was not disappointed one little bit, this one is pretty much heaven sent to us oily girls out there as it’s matte and long lasting and even though it’s been winter I’ve still been loving it.  I’ve really tested it out on long days of travelling and uni and it has really stood up to the test, I have a dedicated a post to this little beauty if you want to check it out.  Back to the high end of town is another matte lady’s dream it’s the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in 20 Beige – I had heard so many amazing things about this foundation that I knew I had to give it a go, it’s one of those very thin foundations that you would think wouldn’t cover much but it sure does.  It is super easy to apply and covers everything that I need, this is a bit of a must for me when I go on holidays as it dries to a matte finish, lasts all day and is super quick to apply with your fingers.  Now back to the drugstore is a find that blew my socks off the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous in Buff Beige – Sharon Farrell used this in a tutorial and I thought it looked right up my alley, something that lasts all day and still stays fabulous and it certainly does both of these things.  It has brilliant coverage and doesn’t look cakey, I mean you can tell you have it on your face but it doesn’t look too mask like.  Again I have a post dedicated to this proclaiming it to be one of my holy grail foundations and it truly is!  Finally we have to priciest of the bunch and a fairly new one to my collection it’s the Yves Saint Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation in B20 – After hearing this had NASA technology allowing it to flex over your skin and stay put I instantly thought it would be perfect for my oily skin.  Again it is one of those very thin ink like consistencies which is super easy to apply, I love this for early mornings as I can slap it on my face with my fingers with minimal need for blending.

Hopefully that wasn’t too much reading for you guys but I just love sharing my favourite things with you!  What are your favourite foundations?  Can you suggest any more to add to my collection?

Stay tuned to see my favourite BB and CC creams in Sundays post.
