Battle of the bases: My favourite foundations

I am still yet to find my 'holy grail' foundation and have bought possibly every foundation under the sun in the hunt to find my favourite. I have about seven different foundations on the go at the moment but I am determined to save money and use them all up before I buy another. Here a few of my favourites that I have been using recently..

Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation - For anyone who thinks this is similar to Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse, it's not! It is a cream, not a mousse, so it gives a natural, 'demi-matte' finish and doesn't look cakey at all. Coverage wise it isn't too heavy so it's good for those that prefer more of a natural look. I sometimes like to go for something with more coverage so have to use concealer on top of this to hide any blemishes and under-eye bags.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 - This is another light foundation that gives more of a natural look but I like to use it when my skin is a bit dry and dreary and is it nice and moisturising. For anyone looking for a day to day foundation this is perfect.

Sleek CC Cream -   Despite only being a CC Cream this is quite thick and also has really good coverage so it works well as a foundation too. It is slightly darker so I don't need to use bronzer with it and it makes my skin look really healthy

MAC Studio Fix Fluid - I'm sure everyone knows about this foundation by now! Unfortunately I picked it up in the wrong shade so it's slightly dark for me but I sometimes mix this with a lighter foundation. As it is so expensive and quite heavy on the skin I only use it on special occassions and prefer to use it in the summer when I have a bit more of a tan.

Bare Minerals Original Foundation - If you haven't tried Bare Minerals makeup yet I recommend you do! Mineral makeup is so good for your skin and doesn't clog your pores at all. It is so easy to build up coverage with it and I love how healthy it makes my skin look. If I'm having a bad skin day and can't bare to be seen without makeup this is always my go to product!


  1. I have only tried the Max Factor one from your list and I didn't like the texture at all :o( x
