Foundation Semi-Fails…

I, like many others, am always on the quest to find the perfect foundation. I’ve come across a few that were close, but never a foundation that was a perfect match. Not for my summer tanned face, and not for my winter face. Never. Maybe I’ll find a winner someday, but today is clearly not that day! I bought several foundation samples awhile back from Camera Ready Cosmetics, and picked up a couple of full-sized products as well. How well did they work? Let’s see.




Not a foundation, but it is something that I’ve wanted to try for awhile now! I like it…when used in moderation. 😉




Yaby Liquid Foundation in Caramel:




Joe Blasco UltraBase Foundation in Honey:





Joe Blasco UltraBase Foundation in Moon Haze:



Face Atelier Foundation in UF 10 (Cocoa):



Yeah, this was after I had to wipe down the dresser. This foundation spilled everywhere when I opened it. Super runny. Yikes!


Joe Blasco UltraBase Foundation in Golden Olive 3:



On my arm:




Out of all of these, the ones that worked best on my face (with the summer tan – thanks, car windows! 😉 ) were two of the Joe Blasco foundations. Honey and Moon Haze both seemed to work fairly well. Neither was a perfect match, but they were the closest. The Face Atelier foundation was more liquidy (is that a word? It is now.) than I’d expected, which resulted in me being extra surprised when it spilled all over the dresser when I opened it. 😦 I can probably use the Golden Olive 3 as a concealer, and once the winter “paleness” sets in, I’ll try the Yaby again. It’s one of those that also seems to oxidize on the face. Maybe it’s just me. If you’ve used any of Yaby’s foundations, please let me know if this has happened to you!
