So that is what the foundation looked like on initial application. If you watched my review on it, then you would know what I think about this foundation however I’ll do a recap for those who havent:
+ cheap cheap cheap! At $20 RRP, this is a steal! Compared to the much dearer price of $39 for the Revlon, this literally craps all over revlon for the great quality at such a low price point! + Matte (currently a plus for me as my skin has been horrendous – however I feel like its almost a rarity to come across a nice oil-controlling matte foundation at the drugstore!) + Amazing blendibility. It’s a much much thinner consistency than the revlon colorstay so I feel like for beginners, this will work to your advantage as it would make it easier to blend out and therefore reduce cake-yness! + Pump. nuff said. + Good colour selection (available overseas…) + Decent longevity. I believe the selling point of this is as a “longwearing” foundation formulation (hence outlast, stay fabulous) and it does do a decent job at staying in place and not disappearing. Mind you in the video I did say I noticed some oilyness happening, but when I actually touched my face i couldnt actually feel any oil! So whether that was just my highlighter, I dont know! But I think the longevity is good as a drugstore longwear formulation, however it certainly does not exceed other higher end brands.
– Poor colour selection (in Australia…) – Can be overly drying for normal/dry skin girls! – I’ve heard it oxidises (nothing too drastic that I’ve noticed though)
– Ridiculously hyped up – but it’s not like I can blame that on the foundation right?
Literally I’m racking my brains out trying to find cons for this foundation and I cant find any! It’s really quite a good great foundation especially for being only $15 AUD from the drugstore! Well done Covergirl for keeping costs low, unlike a certain other braind *coughrevloncough*
Foundation after 8 hours (as if you didnt already have enough pics of my face right? LOL)
I swear to you, it looks sooo oily here but barely any oil transferred! It was crazy weird!
So thats it, no more pictures I swear!! haha. Hope you guys enjoyed that, and if you havent seen the video yet please do check it out. I show you how I put the foundation on and my first impressions!
In an attempt to stay consistent with this blog, I’ve included a list of my everyday makeup below. If you roll-over the image you can see the labels of each. This has been my go-to makeup for the past 3 months (no joke) and I find that it’s very uni/wok appropriate that provides slight smokiness but also only ENHANCING the features. It’s all very neutral and you can +/- the MAC Paintpot in Quite Natural depending on how smokey you want it. Very often I actually just leave the lids plains (no shadow) and just contour my crease with the Milani brow fix in medium. As I mentioned in my March Favourites video, I love to use the Milani shadow eyez in champagne toast as an eyeliner on my waterline to break up the “matte-ness” of the eyelook, and I also bring it into the inner corners as a highlight. I love doing this in all my look as it just really opens up the eyes and brighten everything up! I love it. And for the price, the milani shadow pencil is a GREAT dupe to the Urban Decay 24hr pencil in Sin (I have that and BARELY use it – I actually PREFER the milani!)
It’s a very very quick and easy everyday look, and usually doesnt even taken me 10 minutes. I will be doing a video on this soon, so stay tuned for that as well. But for now, this is the crux of the look and hopefully you guys check out the products I’ve shown!
And this is my makeup after a typical 8-5pm day! Pretty good right?
For those curious, this is the makeup I wore in my Romwe Unboxing Haul:
So this may be new to some, and a very regular thing for others… but here I am to present to you all my first ever product EMPTIES video/post!
As I have mentioned in my video, I very rarely finish a product completely (mainly because I go off and open a new product) so if you’re ever in my room, you will see millions of half empty foundations/powders/slightly used blushes… etc! It’s a mess.
But alas, I finally finished my first MAC product and I am thrilled. I was so excited that I hit pan that I already wanted to purchase a back up… but decided that I probably should try to finish up the other already half used products.
I’m hoping that this will motivate me to keep at the products and try to finish them… but is it just me or do some people find other people go through makeup products so quickly?? I mean, do some people eat them or something? Because I remember I would watch them haul it, and nek minnit it’s in their empties! I’m just wondering if I’m doing something wrong because nothing seems to finish on me! haha. Alright, so enough with the rambling… onto the post!

So that’s it! I will try to accompany all my new videos with a blogpost with details of what makeup I’m wearing and such so people can refer here for those details. Also because when some people ask it’s already been so long that I’ve forgotten!
Also, I’ve finally got the book I was talking about in my previous post. So I’ll be having a browse through that tonight, and hopefully get some inspiration 🙂
Righteo, that’s all for now folks! Until next time 🙂
