Hi makeup lovers!
A fun fact about myself: I’m a little bit of a makeup junkie and I love to try new products. Sephora and Ulta are my happy places. I don’t discriminate either, I use both high-end and drugstore products, it really just depends.
I am reviewing 4 foundations in today’s post. My picks are completely unbiased, they are all products that I have bought and used myself. I’m very particular when it comes to foundation. I want a great product with nice, buildable coverage. Is that too much to ask for??? So enough with my yapping, let’s get started…
*I apply all my foundations the same way, using a damp Beauty Blender to apply.
1. CHANEL PERFECTION LUMIERE
Chanel…how you disappointed me. This foundation was NOT what I was expecting it to be. Such a bummer considering how beautiful the packaging is. The application is horrible and difficult to blend. The coverage is very light and not buildable whatsoever. This just proves that high-end, designer products are not always the best.
Score- 2 out of 5
Would I Buy Again?- No
2. ULTA BRAND DEMI-MATTE FOUNDATION
I was pleasantly surprised with how nice this foundation applied. Having dry skin, I wasn’t too sure how a demi-matte consistency would work on me but it applied great. The coverage is nice and buildable but still lets my skin “breathe” and look fresh. All in all, it’s a really good buy for your money.

Would I Buy Again?- Yes
3. LOREAL TRUE MATCH SUPER-BLENDABLE MAKEUP
This drugstore foundation has been my go-to for years now and it looks like that won’t be changing anytime soon. I can’t rave enough about this foundation. The color selection is unlike anything I’ve seen before, you’re guaranteed to find an exact match for your skin tone. The coverage is perfect for me…it goes on silky and gives me great coverage yet still leaves me with a nice dewy glow. It lives up to the name, it’s very blendable for when I need to go back a second time around and add more coverage.
Score- 5 out of 5
Would I Buy Again?= Yes!
4. LA ROCHE-POSAY EFFACLAR BB BLUR
This is a nice product that I’m glad I came across. It may not be my every day choice but it’s good to have on hand when I’m looking to use something lighter than the normal foundation. It comes out of the tube like whipped cream and goes on very smooth. It has buildable coverage and leaves my skin feeling soft and looking smooth.
