Foundation Nation | Edition One

Foundation, the base to every complexion. Some love it, some hate. I LOVE it! It's one of my favourite things to try out, and I have tried almost everything out there. I started my obsession with the humble beginnings of drug store foundations, and quickly graduated to the high-end department store foundations.

I've tried them in multiple finishes; matte, dewy, and natural. Also, in every texture you can imagine. Finding a good foundation is like finding a really great pair of jeans. You want it to smooth out any imperfections, and lift and enhance your assets. 

First stop, COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 foundation. I first tried this because my teenage cousin was looking for a drug store foundation. I had originally used Estee Lauder's Double Wear on her. It's the one I typically use because it's full coverage, and extremely long lasting. She loved it, but she did not love the price. 

I went on YouTube to see what was out there ( the best resource for anything make up related). COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 was praised by some of the top beauty gurus in the community, so we went out and bought it for $12 CAD. 

It's a primer, concealer, and foundation. Great for anyone who doesn't want make up that's too fussy. It gives great coverage, while providing long lasting wear.The finish is matte, so I would suggest it to a normal to oily complexion. If you're dry like me, don't fret just moisturise or even add a few drops of oil to your skin so that it goes on smoothly.

All in all, for $12 it's a steal for such a great product! I might even like it a little more then my Double Wear.

Take care.
