Hello, darlings! I don’t like to bash products or anything so I barely do a “worst” or “disappointing” type of post. I usually just put my thoughts up on Hit or Miss Mondays and let it be. However, I wanted to cohesively discuss some disappointing products that I’ve purchased. While I was rummaging through my makeup, I realized they were mostly foundations. So, I decided why not just talk about it all in one post. Let’s jump in…
- Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation I received this foundation complimentary to test out from Influenster. I did a review on it a year ago and my feelings have not changed whatsoever. This foundation is super thick and super hard to blend. You can use a beauty blender or a makeup brush, but it will still be a pain to blend.. It’s straight up cake face. Also, the shade range is crappy. Sand is the color that most closely would match my skintone and I look insane wearing it. It does stay matte, but after all the other issues that it has what’s the point?
- L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation If you’ve been following me for a while, you’d know that I compared this foundation to Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte + Poreless. I gave it a 7/10. It had its issues, but I really wanted to like this foundation. Now, I can say that I really dislike this foundation. As someone whose skin is on the oily side, this foundation becomes patchy and dry on my skin throughout the day. I’ve tried using a different primer with it and moisturizer but it’s still an issue. I wouldn’t say it’s buildable either because it can get cakey real fast.
- Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation This foundation was my holy grail in high school. I tried it again a few months ago and I was so upset! I don’t know what’s happened. I don’t know if it’s the formula or me but this foundation makes me look ashy! I look like a ghost when I put this on. Better yet, I look like a corpse. I’ve actually read plenty of reviews of people saying they look like a corpse when they wear this. It’s so disappointing because I know for a fact I’m wearing the right shade but something is totally off. Every thing else is fine. It’s comfortable, blendable, and buildable but I can’t be out here looking crazy!
If you agree with me or have some tips, let a girl know!
