An up close and poresonal on another really hyped foundation. The list of claims is long and full of everything one can wish for. Was it worth it for me? Check out the video and see what my impressions were.
Despite being really curious about the new foundation releases (including one by Cover FX), I can’t help noticing a trend on the textures/formulations of these foundations, and they don’t always agree with my skin’s needs. No shade: I just find there are some days when my skin just can’t handle the long-lasting fluid highly pigmented new formulas (usually silicone and alcohol-heavy) that are sprouting everywhere, because they can start to sit weirdly after a few hours, enhancing the texture and some dry patches I didn’t even know were there.
These products, however, despite nobody talking about them, have been proven gems for any kind of mood my skin is going through, keeping it looking smooth, and are especially nice for touch ups at the end of the day, since they come in handy packaging and the creamy formulas mesh so well not only with textured skin but on with day-old makeup.
I really do think these are worth their own video, despite no influencer is paying them a great deal of attention.
Also, Cover FX is cruelty-free and has a boat load of shades to choose from.

Cover Stick (24 shades)

Happy new year!
Back into the swing of things, I’m starting off with one of my favourite videos to make: an Up Close and Poresonal on the Maybelline Super Stay Foundation.
It´s sort of been relaunched (some say it’s been reformulated), and there’s some buzz about it, so I got my hands on it and tried it on camera. Another great affordable find. Drugstore brands are making it hard to justify the high-end price tags, aren’t they?
If you want to know all about my 10 hour day with this foundation, just click play.
This foundation is widely available in your local drugstore (for us in Portugal, in supermarkets), and online through Feelunique.
Oh so hyped I can’t even.
Or can I…? Find out on my video ;)
some facts about this product:
this week I bring you a review on a foundation that, according to Stephanie Nicole, is extremely close in formula (over 95%) to the new Fenty Beauty Foundation, and may have possibly even been made in the same factory — without a proprietary formula. because Portugal was AGAIN left out of the worldwide launch of the hype brand of the month and its foundation has had high reviews, I had to at least give its alleged cousin a try.
it finally arrived, and I spend a whole day with it on my face to show you how it performs on combo, acne prone, ageing skin.
please keep in mind that this was *my* personal experience with it, and sort of a first impressions.
for more information on how to choose your shade, please read my post on the Serum Foundation.
This is nothing less than a phenomenon. Due to its very low price (under 7 €) and to the amazing array of colours, the foundations from The Ordinary have been constantly sold out. If you want one, you really have to want it and wait for quite a while…
The Ordinary foundations come in two finishes: Serum (Lower coverage, dewier finish) and Coverage (higher coverage and demi-matte finish). They have no frills nor high claims, and it’s almost a relief to know that. It’s just a foundation.
I managed to get my hands on the Serum version, and that’s what I’m going to talk to you about.
I finally got my hands on it, so here comes the in-depth review!
If you’re in the U.S. and Canada (or in a country that is enabled to shop from those online stores), Sephora carries this foundation.
If you’re in the E.U., it depends if there’s an Hourglass counter on your local beauty store. I’ve found that you can order online through SpaceNK.
a day in my life with the NYX total control drop foundation.
