Why do foundations now have to have a name with 10 words in it??? The new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation is definitely no exception! I picked this up in the shade 5W1 Bronze to test out. As a new addition to the Double Wear line, it is supposed to give a lightweight but long lasting coverage. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know that this sounds right up my alley! I tested this out for you in the video below, so make sure to watch that. If you are short on time and want to quickly know what I thought of the foundation, check out my pros and cons below.
Foundation is one of my number 1 makeup loves! I love trying different ones and because of that, I have found quite a few that I’m fond of. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to figure out what foundation will hold up in the hot weather and manage to still feel good on the skin. Check out my top foundation picks for the summer! For reference, my skin is pretty normal these days with most of my oil being in my t-zone.
So about 2 weeks ago, I decided to do a first impression video for the new Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation. Because I take foreverrrrrr to edit my videos, I now have a much better idea of how I like this foundation. Check out the video below for my initial thoughts. Below that I’ll give you a rundown of the pros and cons of this foundation!
Lancome recently released a foundation in a unique type of packaging. The new Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation is a liquid foundation that comes in a compact. There is a sponge like material (or cushion) that is basically holding the liquid in place. This foundation is supposed to be lightweight, hydrating, and brightening. It also has the benefit of being very portable due to it being in a compact. I decided to give this product a try in the shade 450 Suede N. Check out the video below to see how it fared!
Is the Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation something you would be interested in trying?
I love trying new foundations and letting you all know about them! Today, the foundation that I reviewed is the new MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in the shade NC45. I really wanted to try this one out because it claimed to be lightweight, long wearing, and waterproof. If you would like to see how it lived up to those claims, check out the video below!
Would you like me to do some sort of foundation round-up where I talk about my foundation collection? If so, leave me a comment as to how you would like to see that done!
One of the items that I was most excited about picking up during the most recent Sephora VIB Sale (click here to see that haul) was the new Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette. Swatches for this palette are starting to pop up online, but I haven’t seen many on my skin tone yet, so I wanted to share those with you. I can’t give a review on these yet since I haven’t used them, but the swatches seem pretty promising. By the way, if you’re wondering why I haven’t used this palette yet it is because I recently gave birth to my first child! Since then, I haven’t really worn any makeup, but I swatched this prior to giving birth so I didn’t want the swatches to be in vain.
I’m finally back with another beauty post! If you have followed my blog for awhile, I’m sure you know that foundation is one of my favorite makeup items to test out. The Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation* was recently released and it caught my eye so I decided to try it out for you. So far, the only Dior foundation that I’ve tried is the Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation, and that is one of my very favorite foundations so I figured that this one would probably work well for me too. I picked up this foundation in the same shade, 050 Dark Beige. Keep reading if you would like to see what I thought as a first impression on this foundation!
If you regularly keep up with the beauty blogs, you may have heard about the new Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes that Hourglass released. These beautiful palettes are now available in 7 varieties and I decided to try out the Obscura version. I haven’t had a chance to play around with this palette yet, but I know this will be a hot item, so I wanted to get out some swatches for you in case you’re interested in ordering.
In my most recent haul, I picked up a new foundation, Lancome Nude Miracle. This foundation is a Sephora exclusive (for now at least) that promises a weightless feel and bare-matte finish. It is one of the new liquid to powder foundations that it seems like all the brands are starting to come out with. If you would like to see how it looks and find out my initial thoughts, check out the video below!
For reference, my other foundation shades are as follows:
Make Up For Ever Face & Body: 12
Smashbox Studio Skin: 4.1
Diorskin Nude: 050
NARS Sheer Glow: Cadiz
YSL Youth Liberator: B70

Have you tried any of the new liquid to powder foundations? How did they work for you?
NARS recently released a huge line of lipsticks with a brand new formulation that has been getting a lot of buzz in the beauty community. This range boasts 40 shades that promise long lasting, full impact color all while giving a luxurious feel to the lips. Sounds great, but for $32 each, are they worth it? I purchased 3 shades to test out so that I could let you know!
