If I got a penny for every time I was asked what foundation I was wearing, let’s just say I’ll be able to buy all the makeup my heart desired lol. Finding that perfect foundation( especially for varied skin tones like us Caribbean girls ) is like finding true love to me. It delights your heart and makes you never want to let go. I’ve been fortunate to find 3 true loves (foundations) in my current lifetime. These are my “go to” foundations after much experimentation and epic failures. In no particular order, because I use them all for different reasons, here are my Top 3 favourite foundations.
1. Revlon Colourstay 24 hrs Combination/ Oily Skin
This foundation is the perfect everyday foundation but it can also be used as a staple foundation for someone who is now getting into makeup. The price ranges from $60 – $80 TTD depending on where you purchase it. It is lightweight but yet buildable for medium to full coverage. It promises to last for 24 hrs but I’ve honestly never worn foundation for such an extended period of time to know if that works. What I can say is that it leaves your skin with a matte finish and the different shades available are known to match your skin perfectly. This is a really great foundation, especially for the price.
2. L’oreal True Match
This is my “night, but not special occasion foundation.” This foundation also gives full coverage with a matte finish.The price range is similar to the Revlon Colorstay ( $60-$80 TTD). The shade matches my complexion well but not as perfect as the Colorstay, if that makes any sense.
3. M.A.C Studio Fix
This is my “special occasion” foundation. I was a bit skeptical about buying this foundation because it is pricey but I can honestly say it is worth it. I purchased this foundation directly from the MAC store last year and it was $250 TTD I believe. Yes it is expensive! It will however last a while and it will give you a flawless finish. A little also goes a long way, so there is no need to be heavy handed with this product. This foundation is also great for person’s with oily/combination skin as it controls shine.
