My Foundation Shades + A Mini Review of Each!

Hi loves,

I know it has been a while since I have done an actual blog post. I have been so busy and trying to get a bit of rest since I have been out of school. This post is to help someone who may be trying to find out what their foundation shade is and to help someone who may want to know a little bit about a particular foundation.

In the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation, I am in the shade Intensity 4.0. This is a really good foundation because it is non-transferable and it does last all day. I would not recommend this foundation to a person with really sensitive skin, because I do not have really sensitive skin and it leaves a few tiny red bumps on my face after I take it off. $36

True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup Golden Beige - N6.5 - Face - L'Oreal Paris

In the L'Oreal True Match Foundation, I am in the shade Golden Beige (N6.5). I love this foundation because it is so light weight. I have always been a fan of the True Match foundations because their is such a large color range for people. I do get a bit oily in my t-zone with this foundation, but once I blot and dash some powder it is good to go! $9-$13.99


In the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation, I am the shade California Tan (HDF 08). I like this foundation because it gives a very light coverage for those days that I don't want to wear a lot of makeup. It is also a really a really affordable HD Foundation. $15

In the foundation Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h I am in the shade 430 bisque c. This is my all time favorite foundation ever. I love it because it does not oxidize heavily into the skin causing me to look darker throughout the day. It is a more matte finish foundation which helps to control my oily skin...I love it. It is a pretty expensive foundation. $45.

ColorStay Makeup With Softflex for Combination/Oily Skin
In the Revlon ColorStay Foundation, I am in the shade Rich Ginger. This foundation is the best drugstore foundation to control combination/oily skin. $10.99-13.99.

 Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

In the MAC Studio Fix Fluid, I am in the Shade NC45. This is probably the most popular higher end foundation that everyone raves about...and it definitely lives up to the hype. They have a wide range of colors for all skin tones and I love it. This is one of the more affordable high end foundations. $27.

Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup
In the Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup, I am in the shade Fresh Golden. I love this brand just because it is really good and healthy for the skin. My skin feels so clean when I wear this foundation, wear as most other foundations does not make me feel that way.

I have so many more foundations that I have and wear but these are the ones that I pull for the most (except the Estee). If you guys would like to know about the rest of the foundations that I have, because I have several, just leave a comment below and let me know. I hope that all enjoy this post.
