Hunt for Foundation.

So, you may remember that about six months ago I wrote a post about how Maybelline had discontinued my favourite Foundation, the Wonder Finish. For the past six months I have been on the hunt for a new foundation. I am still failing miserably. I just can't find one that's perfect for my skin, gives good coverage, lasts a long time, is lightweight, and goes on liquid but looks more 'matte'. I have tried both the cheaper brands and the more expensive. I bought the Max Factor Colour Adapt foundation today, so will let you know what that one's like. If the Max Factor one is awful then next on the list is the Laura Mercier Foundation. So, over the past six months I have so far tried the following;

Maybelline Pure Liquid Mineral - was horrible! Made my skin very shiny and oily.

Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation - Can't actually remember what was wrong with this one?
But, there must have been a reason why I didn't continue using it...hmm...maybe I'll have to try it again.

Calvin Klein Infinite Hydration - didn't spread very evenly, too thick.

Smelt like paint, and it also felt like I was spreading paint on my face.
Didn't match my skin tone at all, very thick and felt heavy.
Probably the best out of all of them to be fair. My biggest disappointment about this one is that
it didn't actually stay on for very long, even when using powder to set it.
So much for '25 Hour Foundation'.

Ew. It's too the MAC one it feels like you're spreading paint on your face! Far too heavy.

Can anyone recommend any others for me to try just in case I don't like the Max Factor one?



  1. I use LUSH Colour Supplement. It's really good on my skin, I don't feel like I'm wearing foundation and they will happily help you colour match in-store. The great thing about it is it can be used as a concealer, foundation or tinted moisturiser (when mixed with moisturiser), depending on your need.

    1. Ooh, I think I'll have to get some of that to try when I'm next in town! Thanks :)


  2. Makeup forever HD Foundation :D

    1. I've never heard of that one, where can I get it from?
