Givenchy Eclat Matissime ($51) is a matte liquid foundation product that the brand launched for Fall 2012. Odd choice as I commonly associate matte foundation launches with Summer. I’m sorry I sometimes forget to acknowledge you lucky folks out there with oily skin year round. Yes, lucky…! Oily skin types actually age slower than those with drier skin so be thankful
This fluid foundation can be liken to some of my personal favorites in terms of formula such as Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation, Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup, and Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua.
Although I have dry skin I was still curious to try this out and I’m very happy I did indulge because it’s quite wonderful.
The new YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation ($55) is a terribly over indulgent little purchase on my part. I really had to check this one out for myself so I indulged in two shades.
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation is inspired by YSL’s cult favorite Touch Eclat Pen. With added sun protection (SPF 19) this is a weightless foundation that targets shadowy areas on your face and adds light. The foundation enhances your own natural skin tone leaving behind a weightless finish.
Here are a few thoughts.
Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfect Makeup is one of many new foundations that embrace a second skin formula that adheres to skin for lightweight coverage that feels like it’s part of your skin.
Although I don’t have a terrible issue with larger pores I decided to test this out. The shade is very off (golden 24) but I decided to test it out anyway because I really liked the texture of the formula.
Here’s some thoughts!
I couldn’t resist, I purchased the Laura Geller Fresh Brewed Beauty Set.
*hangs head in shame*
It’s just too cute, it comes in a little coffee bean bag, how could I resist?
Is it worth your buck?

Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer is a newly launched long wearing base from the brand for Fall 2012. This somehow replaces, I guess, their One Step Makeup Foundation which I loved and they proceeded to axe from the master line.
I don’t think I like Stay All Day Foundation as much as I did One Step but it does prove convenient for travel if you’re looking for your concealer and foundation to be housed under the same roof so to speak.
Take a look!
