My Makeup Collection Part 7 | Foundations and Primers.


So we’re edging closer to finishing my Makeup Collection Series and today I’ll be sharing my Foundations & Primers with you all. My collection of Foundations & Primers aren’t too big 
as I’ve recently had a clear out, but the ones I will share with you have been part of my collection for a long while now and I love using them all for different reasons.


So, firstly primers. Up until a couple of years ago, primers weren’t really something I would as I didn’t really believe in them ... tbh I still don’t know if I do ... but I like to use a glowy one to give a more highlighted and glowy look to my skin before applying the rest of my makeup. 

The L’Oreal LumiMagique has been my go-to for quite a while now and I’m sure you’ve all seen me talk about this a lot on my blog, especially recently. It’s such a perfect dupe. for the MAC Strobe cream, which is my absolute ride or die, so the fact that I’ve kind something for almost a 3rd of the price, makes it the perfect primer for me. 

The next, and only other full size, primer that I have is the Revolution Radiant Peach Correcting Primer and it's been working really well with my skin. The first time that I was trying it and squeezed it on my hand, it came out like an orange paint and I was kinda of put off by first impressions, but after I applied it to my face  it actually gave me a subtle summer glow and not look like an Oompah Loompa like I thought it would. 

I do have other primers but these are all mini samples, but I still love using them nonetheless. These minis include MAC Strobe Cream, MAC Skin Base Visage and the Pink and the Yellow MAC Prep & Prime Natural Radiance. As well as the Pur Cosmetics Correcting Primer and the Smashbox Photo Finish.


My first foundation is my one and only stick foundation, which I am really loving using at the moment. Again, stick foundations were never something I would decide to pick up and try out as cream products don’t really suit my skin, but this is on another level. This foundation has really good coverage, blends really nicely without being cakey and they have a really good shade range. I did film a review of this foundation on my YouTube channel which you can watch (here). 

Next up, are the LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Liquid Foundation ... longest name ever ... and I have 2 of these. One in the shade Fair and one in Natural. This foundation has really good coverage, gives a glowy finish (which I love) and it doesn’t give that cakey look. The only issue I have with this foundation is the shade range as Fair, which is the lightest shade, still has an orangey colour to it and it also oxidizes slightly. I  use the NYX White Foundation Mixer to lighten the foundation and it has been working for me. I do think that, if the foundation was to match me, I think it would deffo be one of my favourites. However,  they do have 15 shades and a white mixer and costs only £10 so I think that they pro's out ways the cons. If you would like to read my full review you can (click here).

The Rimmel Breathable and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum have been my longest loving Favourites when it comes to foundation as they just suit my skin perfectly. From the shade, to the glowy finish, the lightweight but decent coverage and the price. If you’re new to makeup or are looking for a good foundation that also has a good price tag, then this one will be right up your street. Also if you’re a little pale, like me and you want something that isn’t going to oxidise or give that orangey look, these are perfect for that. 

Before finally decided to pick this one up, the Revlon colourstay had been on my wish-list for years, after being raved about within the beauty community on YouTube/Blogs. If you would like to read my full thoughts on this foundation then you can click here!

Last but not least, I have the EX1 Invisiwear Foundation which isn’t my favourite, but I do really like it. The actual foundation is really long wearing and has good coverage but the cons are that I have the lightest shade (F100) but is really dark and orangey and it’s quite thick. However, I do think that if it was a little lighter I would like it more. Also, I like to mix this with a lighter foundation, like the Bourjois one, to thin it out and make it more yellow toned and it actually works well then.

  1. I love that LA Girl foundation, I do hope that they expand the shade range though because it is so frustrating that they lack fairer shades. Lovely post!
