about maybe 2 weeks ago I made up my mind that I would search high and low for a new foundation to try that wasn’t drugstore since I’ve tried a few and they’re not bad but hey, maybe the grass is greener lol
I went into Macy’s and was met with the most adorable makeup artist ever. He sat me down and put these creams and founadtion on my face and made me look amazing, so I said I WANT THIS.. I got this foundation and a sample of the moisturizer her put on me all for $48-ish, almost $50, which makes this the most expensive foundation I’ve bought.. Ever, I think.
Excitedly, I get home and I can’t wait to use it myself and see what this “luxe” brand is all about.
First thing I have to mention is that the packaging is amazing. it’s very pretty looking and the bottle comes with a pump, which is just sublime. So, I wash my face that evening and decide to start using the moisturizer right away since I was in DIRE need of moisturizer.. so as I’m using the moisturizer, also by Lancome, I’m noticing my face is looking a little healthier and I love it. A few days go by and I decide to take out my newly bought foundation and try this on myself.
I really loved the way it looked on me. It gave my face this natural looking glow and it really does not look like I’m wearing makeup at all. I liked that a lot.. The only issue I found with it was that it is really not full coverage and I appreciate full coverage makeup a lot. This foundation at first when I applied it, I wasn’t really sure of it. and I don’t know if it’s just me, but as the day went on, it looked better LOL so by the end of the day I was really happy with it and didn’t wanna remove my makeup.
Now, this foundation IS really great and it looks very amazing and I’m glad I got it, but would I get it again? No. Mainly because I also picked up a Covergirl foundation and also tried it and found that it had a VERY similar effect. and I paid $7 for this Covergirl foundation which I REALLY love. So if I can get a great foundation that doesn’t look cakey, gives a nice glow to the face, and wears naturally and lightweight, I’m going for Covergirl. it’s convenient and inexpensive. Not that Lancome isn’t a great option if you don’t mind spending a little more, but “beauty on a budget” is my motto, what can I say, I’m frugal that way.
The Covergirl foundation in question, I’ll leave for another post. My favorite drugstore foundation is still by Revlon. As far as higher end stuff, Lancome just wasn’t for me. But hey, I’ll keep looking :D
