Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation ($62) is a new (and expensive) skincare foundation formula that launched for Spring 2015 that will be available as a permanent part of the Bobbi Brown Makeup Collection.

I’m actually both a hater and a lover of skincare foundations. Most times I find them a little too greasy and oily but I like the theory that I’m treating my skin as well as providing coverage for it. I’m a multitasking demon and I like my makeup products to also multitask so combining skincare along with my foundation into one product is a plus. But as I said, there are downfalls to such formulas. Most times serum foundations are all sorts of oily on my skin and not a terribly pleasant experience. And this is from a girl with dry skin who you’d expect to enjoy serum foundation but no, not my thing thanks very much!

Lancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact Foundation Review & Swatches

Lancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact

Lancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact Foundation is Lancome’s new, first ever cushion makeup which has debuted for Spring 2015 in the permanent Lancome Makeup Collection. I’m hearing a lot about how this is the “first ever cushion makeup”…ummm no. This isn’t the first ever cushion makeup as we’ve seen plenty of it from Korean brands in the last two or so years so there isn’t really anything new about it.

However, if you aren’t privy to the Asian beauty world it will feel like a completely new, unique, and innovative product. But….you have to also keep in mind that we’ve already had cushion makeup in the US market for the past several months and even so far back as a year if you take into consideration that Amore Pacific brought their Cushion Compact to the US in 2013 and more recently both It Cosmetics and Mally Beauty have introduced cushion makeup products.

So yeah, Lancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact Foundation doesn’t quite fit the bill for BRAND new or innovative but none the less it is an exciting launch for the brand.
