Top 3 Favourite Foundations

2 September 2014


I have been a "foundation addict" ever since I came to know about makeup, and I cannot live without foundations (lol). I'm always on the hunt for the best, but I guess I haven't found it yet. Anyway, I have decided to choose three foundations that I adore most and here they are.

1. Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation (32 Beige Light).
This is definitely my favourite among all the foundations I've used. It's very liquidy but it's also buildable. It has a very cute smell that I like - which I think is from the coconut extract to also protect, repair and moisturise your skin when it's being applied on the skin. The texture is not really thick as it is liquidy (very), and I like textures like that. It's not very dewy, but it certainly gives my skin a healthy glow although it's not like the NARS one.

2. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (Medium - Punjab).
I believe I have just written a haul about NARS not too long ago, I have to say that it has lived up to its expectations and it's beaten a lot of the other foundations that I have been using. It's liquid as well but it's like MAC's Pro Longwear in my opinion. Sure, Pro Longwear doesn't give my skin a dewy glow, but texture wise it's the same. I also like this foundation because it's very buildable and it doesn't cake when I apply a second layer on my skin (unlike many other foundations). Gives you a dewy glow and it's a good one!

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation (Light-Medium Neutral).
A mineral foundation.. hmm. I'm not a fan of powder foundations but this one exceeds the bars. I bought this along with the Airbuki Brush so that they compliment each other. One try and I got hooked. No joke! It's full coverage, as promised and it sinks right in - when applied, my skin didn't look like there's foundation at all! I've got the Amazonian Clay 12-hr Full Coverage Foundation in Light-Medium Beige, but that one was more of a liquid foundation and I could say the same but I've decided that will not be on my top 3 because I've already got 2 liquid foundations on the list. 

Any favourite foundations?

  1. I got the Nars sheer glow around a month ago and absolutely love it!! Even in natural daylight my skin looks lovely (and not at all cakey) - it's a shame about the price but 100% worth it in my opinion! xx
