  • Neutrogena Long Wear Foundation

    Neutrogena Long Wear Foundation

    Long lasting, even coverage

    I'm not a huge fan of foundation. It's usually too heavy and it tends to make me break out. But I received Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear from BzzAgent and decided to give it a try. The shade selection was pretty small (maybe because it's a new product). I have medium, olive skin and chose medium beige. The color was slightly dark for me, but I think it'll be a good match for my tanned summer skin. I'm used to BB cream so it felt a little heavy on my skin, nothing uncomfortable though. And it truly is LONG lasting. I dabbed some on my hand before applying it to my face with a brush and I could see the foundation spot on my hand even after washing (and rubbing!) it.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Coverage isn't that great

    I've got very oily skin and it tends to break out easily. I started using BareMinerals in hopes that a natural product wouldn't cause as many breakouts (it says right on the box 'so pure you can sleep in it'). The first thing I noticed was the lightweight coverage. They claim this is a lightweight foundation that gives you an airbrushed look. But it was so lightweight that I couldn't really see any difference at all. It evens out my overall skin tone but I still have to apply a normal liquid concealer first. And it is a lightweight foundation, but then there's two other layers on top of that. I really liked the warmth (gives you a nice 'glow') and the mineral veil (kept my face from looking so oily right away) but my skin just couldn't handle that much make-up. I was still breaking out like crazy. I still use the foundation but I try to avoid the warmth and mineral veil unless I'm really getting dolled up. I know some people swear by this makeup (and i'm sure it's great if you don't have to worry about breakouts and blemishes) but I was unimpressed. My suggestion would be to try it out, through a friend or in a Sephora-type store, first.
