Here we are with another foundation review. This one is far more affordable than the last one I talked about. It's also far more affordable than the next one coming after this. This is the new L'Oreal 24hr Infallible Fresh Wear foundation. This has a quite extensive shade range. It's on everyone's radar and for good reason.
Ok, it looks like 2019 is going to hit hard with complexion products. In particular, concealer and foundations. I’m excited because my favorite product, funnily enough is not mascara, it’s foundation. I love a good base product. I’ve already tried 3. Today I’m going to discuss my thoughts and experience with the *new* Laura Mercier Flawless Lumiere Radiance Perfecting Foundation.
I don't talk about primers very much on here. That's because there's very few that I like. However, Beauylish sent me the Lumilayer (Original) Primer and Lumilayer Metal Cushion by VDL which is new to their site and I wanted to discuss them
Guys.....I'm going to be yet another person to tell you about the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define foundation that they recently released. I'm going to give you some details and also I will start by saying this is one of the best foundations I've tried in 2018. No joke. So far I only have about 3 foundations that I've tried this year among many, that I am in love with it. So lets talk about it.
As you may have heard, NYX released a new foundation it has a shade range of 45 shades in a matte finish. Which is fantastic. I'm glad that there's more options becoming available with extensive shade ranges. This was sent to me by Influenster and they also sent the CSWS Primer that is also matte.
I haven't done one of these in a while. Now is a good time because I'm loving a lot of stuff from Wet N Wild. That makes me happy because they're really affordable, they've put out some really cool, and equally as great performance wise, products lately. So let's get into some of my faves that I think you need to consider getting.
I finally got around to trying some new launches in makeup. My no buy is over. Which gave me a full month to watch releases, reviews, and really see what I wanted to try. One of those products being the NARS Natural Radiant Long Wear foundation. It had good reviews from everything I saw. I in general, love NARS foundations. So I was very excited.
It's time for a "Why Isn't Anyone Talking About This?" post. This time it's hard to say what this product is other than a base. It's the Color Me Underglow Hydrator and I love it. I've worn it as foundation, I've used it under foundation, and over foundations. I've used it as a base for highlight on the cheekbones. So for me it's very versatile.
Time for another "Why Isn't Anyone Talking About This?" post. This products has actually not been out very long, but I've heard no buzz about it at all. No buzz before it launched and no buzz afterwards. Not that I seen anyway. I can not figure out why.
This is the second time Bare Minerals has made it into this series. So I'm going to go ahead and say that their latest makeup that they've been putting out like the Invisible Bronzer and Invisible Glow. Plus their Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lips that have been out for a while, which are my absolute faves, are solid products. I'm also a huge fan of the Bareskin Concealer, talking about it several times on here.
I'm happy to add another solid product to that list. So I'm talking about the Bare Minerals Bare Pro foundation. It's still new. I've had mine for about 3 weeks I guess. I kept waiting on people to talk about it and no one did. So I will! This is a light weight, liquid formula. However, the pigment in this is unreal making it full coverage without the weighted down, pore clogging, cake-y looking, side effects from most full coverage foundations.
It's a pump packaging in a glass bottle. You get 1 oz and it runs for $34. Which I'm cool with because every, single, foundation I'm seeing these days are up around $40-$50 or more. Which I have and would pay for a very good foundaiton but still it's nice to see them sticking to the price point that I've always seen them have. There are 30 shades which in my opinion is impressive.
The pigment in this is so strong that you definitely need your correct color. I normally can make a shade slightly darker or llighter than my actual skin tone work with other foundations. This one I could've went with a bit of a darker shade because again the pigment was so potent that it was easier to tell that it wasn't going to be the exact color match. Which I fixed with bronzer and concealer in some spots. So definitely not a catastrophe like sometimes that can be.
I have used this with a stippling brush and a sponge. I recommend a brush and stippling it on to get the most coverage but using a really dense sponge like the Elf teal sponge or Morphe Sponge still worked just fine, it just caused me to use more product which I'd rather not do if I can avoid it.
So yea, there ya go. I think you should check this out. It's at Ulta and Sephora. I love it. I've not used anything else since I got it.

I've not done a foundation review in a while so let's talk about a new "drug store" one I picked up recently. I'm gonna be the first to tell you that I am not the biggest fan of Covergirl makeup. Nothing personal at all it just never has worked out for me. There will however be a special place in my heart for my first compact (and piece of makeup) which was from Covergirl. So there is that.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
