L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

If you like Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse foundation, then you’ll also like L’Oreal’s Magic Smooth Souffle. Similar in texture, it gives the same full coverage. Our favorite part about this makeup is that it makes your skin look flawless, but it actually feels light on the skin. And since this foundation has a great matte finish, you don’t have to worry about using a powder to set it. If you like a more natural coverage, then this foundation isn’t for you. For something lighter, try their True Match Super Blendable Makeup. It’s one of our favorites and you can start out light and build coverage to your taste.

Almay Wake-Up Makeup

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

If you have dry skin you may shun powders. But Almay’s Wake-Up Makeup is a powder that is ironically hydrating. This mineral foundation uses technology to infuse encapsulated water in loose powder. The formula also contains cucumber, minerals, aloe vera, and green tea extracts to condition the skin. Best of all, this formula is talc-free, so your pores will be safe. We loved the feel of this powder (it has a cooling sensation upon application) and found it to be very similar to Revlon’s Color Stay Aqua Mineral Makeup. If you’re trying to decide between the two we would say choose Almay if you have sensitive or dry skin; and choose Revlon if oily skin is a concern and you want more staying power.

WetnWild Intuitive Blend Shade Adjusting Foundation + Primer

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Lately we’ve noticed that WetnWild cosmetics has been churning out some really high quality products but at the same inexpensive prices. Our latest favorite is their Intuitive Blend Shade Adjusting Foundation + Primer. Priced at around $6, this is probably the most reasonably priced foundation you’ll ever buy! The foundation starts out white, then adjusts to match your skin color exactly. You don’t have to spend too much time in the store deciding what your color is – there are 4 color ranges to choose from (Fair, Light, Medium, and Tan). What we liked the most about this foundation is that it delivered a matte finish with natural looking coverage, which is a combination that is hard to find.

Iman Cream to Powder Foundation

Monday, April 12th, 2010

It is often hard to find full coverage foundation or powder in darker shades. But the Iman Cosmetics Cream to Powder Foundation and Second to None Semi-Loose Powder are high in quality AND colors to choose from. The Cream to Powder Foundation gives you full coverage, and is excellent for hiding dark spots. The Powder is both mineral and blended with corn silk and silk powder to combat oil. We loved that at the end of the day our oily T-Zone was still kept in check. However, we were most impressed with how the powder is dispensed. With a twist, you get a fresh amount of powder. And this way it’s easier to control how much you load on your brush. Both of these products can be used alone, but if you want a very ‘made-up’ look, we suggest using the foundation and then doing a light dusting of the Powder.
Tip: If you have very oily skin, look for Kaolin when shopping for face masks. Kaolin is a natural clay from Mount Kaolin in China that has been used for many years to draw out impurities and oil from the skin.
