Top three foundations





Hey everyone! For today's post I'm going to tell you about my top three foundations that are a mix of highend and drugstore. This is also a collab with my good friends Frances from the blog royally rouge which I will link HERE so make sure you check her post out after this.
My first foundation and favourite of the three is the Mac studio fix fluid foundation in the shade NC15. This foundation is the perfect skin perfecter and it lasts on me all day even with my oily t-zone. I would say it's full coverage and the finish is almost satin, although more on the pricey side at £21 I would 100% recommend it.
My second foundation is the Revlon colourstay in the shade buff. I love this foundation for on the days where I don't want as much coverage as I find this a medium to heavy coverage foundation on my skin and I normally prefer a really heavy foundation. It's also got great lasting power, however I don't know if it actually lasts 24 hours as it claims as I've never tested that out. But for £12.99 I love it!
My final foundation is the Rimmel match perfection in the shade 100 ivory. In my eyes this foundation is just a cheaper dupe for the Mac studio fix which I love so why wouldn't I love this. It pretty much lasts the same amount of time as the Mac one and offers the same amount of coverage just with a much cheaper price tag. The only down side to it is that I find it a tiny bit drying on my skin, however maybe that's just highlighting the fact I really need to moisturise more! Anyway for only £7.99 you really can't go wrong.

Thanks for reading and make sure you check out Frances' blog.

  6. I love studio fix and the rimmel match perfection but now they've changed the formula I don't like it as much. I've been wanting to try that Revlon one for ages though!

  7. Great post! I haven't tried any of these foundations. The Mac one has been on my wish list for a while, but not too sure I can justify spending that much on a foundation eeek xx

  16. I am completely tied between Match Perfection and Max Factor Facefinity, I love both of them for different reasons, but Match Perfection for spring! I'd love to give the others a try too :D xx

  21. I've heard so much about the MAC studio foundation but still scared to try it incase it breaks me out as the coverage is pretty full on compared to NARS sheer glow which I currently use as this gives a medium coverage xx

    1. You should try going to Mac counter and get them to do your foundation for you to see if it breaks out before you buy a whole bottle. Also I really want to try the Nars sheer glow foundation! x

  22. I've only tried the Rimmel foundation out of all of these and I love it! Rimmel do such good foundations. The other two sound great too :) xo

  28. Which one of these foundations would you recommend for the summer time? I'm asking, because I want to buy a new one for summer, but I don't know which I should chose (?) These three sound great! I think Imma give the Rimmel foundation a try :)

  29. I already have the Revlon Colorstay and I have to admit I don't use it that often. It's not a bad foundation so I'm not sure why! I love the sound of the MAC Studio Fix, I've never tried a MAC foundation!
