It has been almost a month since my adored foundation from Revlon decided oxidizes on my face to look like a carrot...horror!! I´ve posted two previous chapter in the topic, in the persuit of my perfecto fundation. I know I am a difficult girl (my husband always tells me) but as I said before, if I have to spend more than $50 aus in make up I want it´ll be just perfect!!.
Anyway, after MAC, Clinique and Smashbox (all of them for oily skin) I tried the new one from Benefit, Laura Mercier (double wear) and Origins. I have to say that Benefit and Origins are perfect, but two issues: they are mostly light-medium coverage (and I realized that I like my face without my redness areas during the hole day) and they don´t last too much...The Benefit one, it doesn´t control the shine at the end of the day but one point in favor is that the finish is the perfect balance between shine and glow. I had highly expectations for Double Wear, everybody recommends it, but for me, it didn´t work, it is really difficult to blend and if I try to apply a little bit more, it turns cakey. So I didn´t like it.
Thanks god, I only have samples, because I can´t find what I really want. It´s been frustrating!!
Anyway, tomorrow I will go to try others brands...I hope I can find that one, oily free, softly flawless dewy finish, good coverage but also natural!! even if it is not cheap!! but now that I love my face with make up I don´t resist to look so ugly!!
Here´s the pictures (I know that they don´t really look bad...but my Revlon foundation was perfect).
|Benefit Wow Hello Flawless liquid founndation|
|Origins foundation in Honey (definitely not my shade)|
|Origins in Beach (too light)|
|Benefit (you can see the shine in my forehead)|
In other post I´m going to talk of my issue with brushes!!
This is definitely not the month on make up for me
