NARS Oil-Free. Very natural finish, not dewy but not matte either. Definitely HG material…the coverage is very buildable. Love love love 🙂

eww….had this, hated it! don’t ever cry using it bc you’ll have a streak going down your face where the foundation melted away.

Prescriptives custom blend foundation… So I only have to use it where I need it and its the coverage and consistency I want :):)

Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15…my first foundation ever (not counting the bottle of drugstore foundation I bought at the age of about 12, which was also way too dark for me). It’s been over a year since I bought it and the bottle’s almost empty now. I’m quite pleased, but not really impressed with it. I still need to test other foundations to be able to compare it though. Currently I’m thinking about testing Bobbi’s new “Skin Foundation”…

Mac Studio Fix Fluid, it covers wonderfully and is a perfect match, but sometimes I wish for a foundation that wouldn’t be so matte…
that’s why I’m so eagerly waiting for Studio Sculpt, maybe that’ll be HG material 🙂

Studio Fix. I’m open to switching, but haven’t found anything I like better yet. I should probably give MUFE a try.

MAC studiofix NC30 (powder).. It’s the only foundation that matches my skin and I like the matte finish it gives me. Still searching for something that would beat my foundi.

Smashbox SPF 15 – although I think I got the wrong shade. Also, Dior Forever powder foundation – that is quite nice, but the smell is very flowery and old ladyish. Will keep looking. I want to try MAC Studio Fix Fluid and Sculpt.

MAC satinfinish fluid. I loved the mineralize powder so much I wanted to try the liquid. It’s not really Holy Grail for me, but I like it fine. It’s about on par with what I was using before(Moistureblend)

SFF. i just ran out!!! I am waiting to reorder until there is something else i want to buy from MAC so im not paying for shipping for one item! Bleh!

Dior Forever liquid and compact (builable coverage), I’d like to try Dior Nude. I’ve always loved Dior foundations.

I tried DiorSkin Nude this morning and OH MI GOD! It is amazing! I got given a sample by my lovely Dior SA Pam last night and I tried it on this morning and it is beyond incredible! Flawless coverage, blends like a dream and looks so completely natural – more so that any other foundation I’ve ever tried. Once I see how it lasts on, I’m going to buy a bottle!!!

Otherwise, at the moment I’m using Estee Lauder Double Wear Light and I am very happy with the coverage and staying power.

just bought it and love it! i applied this on one side of my face and mac’s sculpt on the other and no one could tell the diff….actually my friends thought maybelline looked cleaner… 🙂

I’m using powder foundation as of now because I don’t need the coverage that much and it’s too hot for liquid. The brand is Za, just a drugstore brand. Medium coverage, and gives me a matte or rather ‘satin’ (in mac terms) finish. It also sort of bronzes my face up a little, I don’t know how since the color is a match to my skin tone but I look more sun-kissed and less pale and chalky with it on.

Hi Christine! 🙂
I’m using several foundations: Double Wear, Double Wear light, Red earth perfect definition, Maybelline Mineral, Clarins Truly Matte and YSL perfect Touch.

Morning Christine,

I use:

MUFE HD with the green primer. Can’t use the foundation without it!

Mac studio Stick
Studio Tech

Lazy days I just

Mac MSF in Med. Buff it in and it’s out the door!

I’m dying to try the new Mac foundation though!!
