March Favorites Day 11- Foundations
Let's take a look!
Favorite Foundation (high-end):
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream ($38)
This foundation has been my holy grail formula for about 2 years now and I've repurchased several times already. It claims to be full coverage and it can definitely get there if you build it up, but I've found that applying one thin layer gives me a nice medium coverage. The formula is heavenly if you have dry skin...it feels like you're applying a moisturizer and it doesn't sink into lines, accentuate pores, or cake up in dry patches. It has a nice dewy finish that makes my drier, dull skin look radiant and healthy. They do make an illuminating version, but I actually prefer the original. I also love that this contains an SPF of 50+ (physical sunblock, not chemical), because I've had skin cancer in the past and always try to be careful of sun exposure.
Available at Ulta. Sephora, QVC
Favorite Foundation (drugstore):
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint ($14.99)
When I first purchased this, the word "tint" in the name made me think that it wouldn't have a lot of coverage (like a tinted moisturizer) but it actually comes close to medium! It has the most amazing feel when you apply it...it feels like you're giving your skin a cool drink of water. It gives the most beautiful, no-makeup finish and no matter how much I build it up, it never looks like I'm wearing foundation. It also lasts a long time...most of the day, even if I don't set my face with powder. If you have dry or mature skin, give this one a try...I think you'll love it!
Available at Ulta, drugstores
