Foundation Shopping

January 9, 2014



1 | 2 | 3 | 4

We all know I've been going back and forth on product for dealing with my acne and I have to say, I'm still loving the Mario Badescu spot treatment! It's been amazing for those pesky little (...big) blemishes that don't want to go away so I've been slowly becoming more confident in my skin. As for a daily regimen, I've just started Proactiv+ and also am loving the results. It's given my face an overall scrub down so the skin is radiant and smooth, something I've never had with my acne scarring. I have found it's a touch drying so my normal Bare Minerals matte foundation isn't doing the trick for me anymore so I'm on the hunt for a new, more enriching foundation. I've pulled together my top picks and I am exclusively leaning towards the Bobbi Brown option because I've heard it's amazingly hydrating while maintaining great coverage, but I want your opinion!

Have you tried any of these or have another option in mind that might work for me? I'm all ears!

  3. I swear by the MAC face & body. It's light to medium coverage but you can build it up if you want to. It's the perfect amount of dewy and so great for acne prone skin! It blends in amazingly with a beauty blender too!

  4. My mom swears by Josie Maran everything! I used to wear MAC back in the day but have stopped. I use bare minerals now but have actually been looking for something else. My skin is so dry in the winter I feel like I need something with a little oil.

  7. Seems like we have a veeerrry similar skin type! I'm on the hunt for a new foundation too. I've previously tried the Laura Mercier Tinted Foundation, but since my skin isn't flawless, I don't feel that it gives me enough coverage to be confident. Please share which one you choose! (and your thoughts when you try it out)

  8. I will live and die by NARS foundation, they have the sheer glow and the matte. I use sheer glow, but I have dry skin, I know people with oily skin like the matte one. Also, Benefit's Hello Flawless is great and Make Up Forever HD. My fav drugstore brand would be L'Oreal True Match - love love love! Good luck on your foundation hunt! :)

  9. It sounds like we have really similar skin...I will be honest...I tried Laura Mercier and loved it for about two weeks and then I started to break out...I have friends in the beauty industry and they told me this was normal and they lead me to Tarte which has been amazing for my skin! Of the ones you chose and what I know about them, I would go with Bobbi, for sure.

  10. I really like Bobbi Brown products even though this particular foundation is a bit too heavy for me when I've tried it in the past. I SWEAR by their foundation stick. I use it in the spots where I need coverage and then blend blend blend!

  13. You have to try Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme foundation. It is amazing! It covers everything while still feeling really light on the skin especially when applied with a beauty blender. I've totally converted to it this winter since BareMinerals doesn't work for my dry-ish skin in the winter.

  14. I've heard good things about smashbox! I know Sephora offers samples of foundation, so you could always try each one to decide!

  16. I've fought acne my whole life. Last year, I joined Mary Kay, and a few months later, they came out with clear proof, which is an acne system and it's done wonders for my face. Every time I go home for the weekend from college, I'm getting compliments for how clear my skin looks! Something I NEVER thought would happen!

  17. Though, that isn't actual foundation, but it does help!
