On the hunt for a new foundation!

Hey everyone!

After a long and busy week of work, it’s such a treat to stay in tonight! It’s freezing here in Melbourne, so I’m rugged up with a hot drink on the couch, blogging. The best way to spend a Friday night, I tell you! I don’t really have a busy weekend planned, but I always end up cramming it with errands, things to do etc. I find it really difficult to stay home on the weekend, I find it hard to say no when people ask me to do something and I get anxious from spending too much time on my own. Does anyone else get like this?

~~~Breaking news~~~: Mecca Cosmetica now stock Urban Decay Naked Palettes! I found out today via a girl I follow on Instagram and I was so excited! I’ve never owned a Naked palette so I think I’ll be picking one up soon! I have my eye on Palette #3, as I like the rose toned colours. 

I recently ran out of my favourite foundation, the Laura Mercier Creme Smooth foundation. I’ve been using old foundations I have in my bathroom cabinet, but to be honest, they are probably expired and I need something fresh and new. I have done some research to see what’s out there, and I’ve narrowed it down to a few. I am after a medium to full coverage product. I don’t wear heavy makeup, but I prefer to have a full coverage foundation for those days when I need to cover up a bit more. 

Clinique Continuous Coverage Foundation. I’ve tried a few Clinique foundations over the years and I think they’re pretty good overall. I might try to get a sample of this in store.

Bare Minerals Pure Brightening Serum Foundation. This is a fairly new product and its gained a pretty good reputation. I think it’s more light to medium coverage but I’d still like to try it out.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. This is a new product from NARS which is meant to give an all day coverage. I’m a fan of NARS as the products are always of the highest quality and have incredible pigment. I think I’ll get a sample of this next time I’m at a counter.

Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. This is one I found while on the Mecca website and it reminded me a bit of the infamous Make Up Forever HD Invisible Coverage Foundation for some reason. I’m yet to try a product from Smashbox but I’ve always heard great things about their makeup. 

I think a trip to Mecca Cosmetics is on the cards! Although this is dangerous territory if you are trying to save…

What are some of your favourite foundations? Can you recommend any?
