Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup – Review, Photos, Swatches


I was recently given the opportunity to try a brand spanking new foundation from Elizabeth Arden – a brand I have never tried before. I have to admit, I had some preconceived notions about the brand, mainly thinking of them as having a more mature demographic, and therefore not really being suitable for me. Well, maybe I was wrong (or ... Read More »

Product Breakdown: This is designed as a foundation for the slicker-skinned among us who need coverage that won’t cause breakouts.

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation


Pigmentation: The pigmentation of this foundation is exactly what it says, offers a natural to medium finish, but could easily be built up should you need it. I stupidly deleted my ‘before picture’ but I did take a half and half shot to show you the difference. I think its pretty obvious, but if you can’t tell, the side with ... Read More »

Garnier BB Cream for Oily & Combinations Skin – Review, Photos, Swatches


Pigmentation: The Garnier Oil-free BB Cream offers a light coverage that is quite easily buildable to medium coverage. Like the original formula, the Oil-free version of Garnier’s BB cream comes in only 2 shades, Light and Medium. Unfortunately the light shade is still a little dark for my NC15-NW15 (let’s just call me an N15) skin tone. Fortunately, due to the sheer pigmentation, I can ... Read More »

Product Breakdown: This is a liquid foundation designed to dry to a matte but not flat finish, moisturise the skin and last all day, while also providing an SPF of 15. Pigmentation: This is the “Natural Ivory” shade. It’s a close match to my skin tone, but not exact. I don’t mind, though, because you can’t really tell all that much unless ... Read More »

L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation – Review, Photos, Swatches

Loreal Lumi Pinterest Collage

Pigmentation: L’Oreal Lumi Magique offers a medium level of coverage, but is very buildable to full coverage. I find it does a great job of evening out my skin tone, and disguising most redness, however I do definitely need to pair this with a concealer when I wear it. Here I am with no makeup on whatsoever. Please excuse the slack-jawed ... Read More »
