While I was trying to write this introduction, I got sucked in to the black hole that is “The Ordinary Drama” time lines. As much as I claim I don´t care for drama online (and believe me, I don´t) it seems like once you start reading, you simply can´t stop.
So much has happened since I shared my initial thoughts here, and it leaves me incredibly confused.
So how do I proceed? I guess I will continue with what I do best and focus on the product at hand, the The Ordinary Coverage foundation and no longer think about the time wasted following link after link in an attempt to make sense to what ultimately may not have one.
Sometimes it is easy to forget why we all started our blogs.
And I say “we” and “all” for writing, I don’t need anyone to point out that people start blogs for different reasons.
I know that. But would you read sentences like: “…to forget why approximately 57% of us started to blog, based on stats from the year 2016.”?
Yeah, me neither.
So, again: Sometimes it is easy to forget why we all started our blogs. Between collaborations, dreaming of going full time and algorithm changes we loose sight of what is always there: The opportunity to share our passion with likeminded people. And passing recommendations.
The foundation reviewed today was 100% enabled by Carol in a Page (who sadly barely has time to blog herself these days), and I will forward the favor and share my thoughts of the L´Oréal Infallible 24 hr Matte foundation.
Or the L´Oréal Indéfectible 24 hr Matte foundation. Depending where you live.

The most efficient way to finish foundation? Apart from wearing it consistently, of course? Dropping the glass bottle on the bathroom tiles.
And a great way to test the waterproof claims, too.
How do I know that? Well, I did just that, a few weeks ago, when my bottle of Catrice 24 h Made to Stay makeup shattered on the tiles.
Just to be crystal clear: This is not the way I will be testing my foundations from now on. Trying to get it off the floor at 6 am (and yes, it is at least water resistant!) while already dressed in office attire is not recommended!
But if the Catrice 24 h Made to Stay Makeup is? Let´s find out!

Yes, I know it is summer. Hot days, bronzed skin, effortless makeup. And yet, admits a flurry of posts singing praises for dewiness and light coverage, here I am. Ready to talk about a matte finish, full coverage foundation. In fact, I am about to review THE matte full coverage foundation – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup.
Why? I can hear you cry out! Why suffocate my feed with thoughts about heavy coverage? Why plant pictures of my base melting off my face into my mind?
Because, no matter the season, I believe that Estee Lauder Double Wear is still the best foundation for oily skin.
And believe me, I have thoroughly tested it. It has been almost one year since I purchased it, it has seen me through summer, fall, winter and spring, and, more importantly, through several skin changes. You see, I am well prepared to give you a thorough Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation review!

Years of teenage and then adult acne have left me with a lot of discoloration, and even though my skin is now better than it ever was before, I tend to wear some kind of face base when I leave the house.
Back in the days I would go for full coverage, most likely looking like I was about to step on stage, but nowadays I prefer a light hand, putting concealer to good use.
Just give me a natural finish, added skincare benefits (when you reach a certain age, there is no time to waste) and sunscreen and I am all in.
Laura Merciers Tinted Moisturizer in Oil free is well loved among the beauty community, so of course I had to give it a go.
