The Ordinary Coverage Foundation – Confusion

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

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.

Foundation Review L´Oréal Infallible 24 hr Matte foundation

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.

Foundation Review Catrice 24 h Made to Stay Makeup

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!

Foundation Review L´Oréal Perfect Match Foundation

You know I film my videos in advance sometimes. Way in advance, this time. I actually filmed it on February 3rd, which I remember so clearly because it was the day I got sick.

See, despite having kids I don´t often catch their bugs, but that time it hit me hard and I was out for almost a week.

Right now I am feeling fine and pity my past self for looks and voice, so no need for sympathy coming from your side.

I´d rather have you focused on the fact that despite me getting so sick over the course of the day, that was how I looked at the end of the video.

Which is actually kind of a spoiler right here: I really, really like the L´Oréal Perfect Match Foundation! But read on to find out how much exactly!

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Oil Free

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

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.
