As you probably know, I have a huge love for foundation. Recently, my sister Viv – Pharmacy Girl mentioned that she had a couple of foundations that were too dark for her, this obviously ended up into one of our swaps where unwanted make-up goes to a loving home. I gave her 2 Bourjois glossy sticks and she gave me two foundations that I have wanted to try for so long! I’ve been using these both like crazy recently and wanted to share my thoughts on them.
I’ve always heard that this was a great foundation but after seeing Kayleigh from Couture Girl wearing it in an Instagram snap, I had to try it. After the first use I was blown away. My complexion was instantly smoothed out and my skin tone was really even. Blending is really easy, it doesn’t appear patchy and stayed put all day. I just love the coverage of this foundation, how smooth and even my skin looks, it’s just brilliant. Luckily this foundation shade suited me before and after I got a tan. My face didn’t really tan too much in Morocco purely because I slap so much SPF on but at least I can wear this foundation whenever I want. Having dry dull skin, I crave the dewy complexion and this foundation gives me just that, it’s gone straight to my best drug-store foundation list.
L’oréal Lumi Magique
Having dry skin, things can look a little lacklustre every now and again. Products with light infusing properties always grab my attention and this foundation was on my list for a while now. This foundation matches me perfectly with my subtle tan but sadly it’s slightly too orange for me when I don’t have a tan. Tan or not, this foundation is just as lovely as the Revlon one. It blends in really nicely leaving a natural healthy glow to the skin. My skin looks lovely and illuminated without looking too dewy or oily.
Both foundations sit wonderfully on my dry skin, I never notice any dry patches when I wear them. They both also have incredible wear time, both staying flawless all day long without any touch ups needed. If you would like a more in-depth review on either foundation, let me know below.
Have you tried either of these foundations?
