Maybelline Instant Age Rewind the Lifter Foundation Review & Swatches

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind the Lifter Foundation

I wasn’t sure I’d like the new Maybelline Instant Age Rewind the Lifter Foundation since I had a rather bad run with Covergirl Olay Tone Rehab.

These foundation with built in serums and primers just don’t seem to work out for me even though I have dry skin. You’d think my skin would love a formula like this but unfortunately, they seem super heavy and greasy on me.

Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation Review & Swatches

Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation 8

My review on Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation is a long time coming. It’s something I’ve used almost religiously for the past several months and something that really excites me since I can’t wear powder foundation products well due to my drier skin.

Wha?!?! Unheard of! Decent foundation for under three bucks? How is that possible?

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup Review & Swatches

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup Spring 2012

Almay Smart Shade Mousse Foundation ($9.99) recently launched for Spring 2013 at drugstores in four color selections (I found mine at Harmons).

This is color adapting foundation product that supposedly “changes” once applied to your perfect shade of color thus the lack of colors. Light, Light/Medium, Medium, and Dark are the soup du jour for this foundation.
