MAC, Chanel, Lancome, drugstore brands… – finding the right Foundation

Finding the right Makeup is never easy. At least it isn’t for me. I’ve been looking for the right Makeup since years. Yes, you’re reading right – years. I’ve tried all different brands, shades, finishes – whatever there is I’ve tried it & I can’t say that I’ve found the perfect foundation yet. I don’t know why & I don’t think I’m expecting too much from a makeup but non of the foundations I’ve tried so far really blew me away. I’ve tried all different kind of high end brands like Chanel, Clinique, Lancome, Mac as well as drugstore brands like Covergirl, Maybelline or Revlon.some of the Foundations I've tried I’ve liked most of these foundations (the photo shows only some I’ve recently tried) but usually they made my skin dry and flaky. I never order foundations online and I rather pick up a bottle at the counter than a drugstore just because I like to make sure I’m getting the right shade & I hate that most drugstores don’t have samples and if they do, the light usually isn’t the best to find the right shade.

So all I’m looking for is a foundation that doesn’t dry out my skin, lasts for most of the day and gives me a good coverage. I’m heading over to a MAC counter this weekend to try out the Mineralize Foundation. I know it’s one of MAC’s more expensive Makeups & I will try it out in the store to see if I like it & hopefully that will be one that impresses me.

Do you have trouble finding the right Makeup? Any suggestions which one I should try?

  1. do you use a lotion before you put on the foundation? i’ve found that a light lotion applied about 15 minutes before i put on the foundation works best with the l’oreal indefectible foundation that i use.

    • Yes, i do. The foundations don’t dry out my skin all the time & usually it’s only on the nose & forehead but it’s just annoying & doesn’t look good. I will take a look at the foundation you mentioned.
