Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation Review

You know how I keep telling you that I won´t purchase some products because I feel almost insulted by the names companies give them?

And I am not talking the tongue in cheek names here (I have a pretty high tolerance to that). No, I am talking about things like the Farsali Unicorn Essence. Unicorns? Really? I am grown up, I don’t want glitter and rainbows.

Although I admit I was seriously tempted to overlook that quite recently, because a Makeup Artist at Sephora used the Unicorn Essence on me before applying the Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation, and the foundation looked beautiful all day.

But after I purchased it (the Matte Perfection Foundation, not the Unicorn Essence, I stood true to my word there), I had a hard time getting it to look like that. In fact, it took me three weeks and a lot of different brush/primer combos to find a way to make it work, and judging by other reviews I have read online I am not the only one that struggles. Maybe the Unicorn Essence would have made my life easier? We will never know.

So don´t despair if you bought it and struggle, I´ve got you covered. At least if your skin type is oily.

Dry skins don´t need to read any further: The Sephora Matte Perfection Foundation is not for you!

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.

I swear I am not obsessed with pores!

But do you remember that one Episode of Sex and the City, shortly before Charlotte separates from her first husband? The one where she sits in front of the magnifying mirror and inspects her pores?

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review – Off trend

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!
