    I have normal-combination skin.
    My top one foundation is Maybelline fit me matte+poreless!! Though 112 is too dark for me, and I have to mix it with some drops of white. It performs and lasts really well on my skin.

    The lightest shade of the physicians formula is still too dark for me. And I can’t find the healthy elixir anymore. I think they stopped selling it. But yea I wish I could use the physicians formula but what are you gonna do? 🤷🏻‍♂️ L’Oréal true match has been my go to!

    Uggg yet again...... The physician formula foundation...... ITS HORRIBLE!!!! how why??? What?? I don't understand.
    It smells like paint. It's too thick. In the worst way possible. I hate it with a passion.
    I literally had to remove it from my bathroom because just looking at it made me mad. Lol
    I just don't get it. Makes absolutely no sense.

    Mine is L’Oréal Pro Glow for realllllllz good coverage, matte formula with a dewy finish, long lasting AND CHEAP but it’s a messy bottle. Not complaining tho I love it.

    I've actually tried the Revlon colorstay foundation and I've got to say... I wasn't a fan. My skin isn't as smooth as yours so that may have been a problem on my end lol, but as soon as I applied the foundation it separated everywhere on my skin. The second time I used it I had primer and it still had the same effect. It didn't cover up any of my blemishes and stuck to my dry patches. Just wanted to share in case anyone may have similar skin problems as me lol

    This video was so helpful! I am always so excited to watch your videos and I'm just an all around huge fan! ! If you haven't tried it yet I feel that a very affordable drugstore foundation is the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Breathable. I would highly recommend:)

    Love Revlon Colorstay! Great for full matte coverage all day wear. I think it's a waay cheaper dupe for Estee Lauder Double Wear.

    I love the Milani 2 in 1 foundation, but dang that smell kills my nose, like I love how it feels and looks on the skin, it's got good coverage but holy crap that smell is too much, I have to mix it with my Wet n Wild Photofocus and not only does it smell better but it looks more dewy and beautiful on the skin

    My favorite *was* Maybeline's Fit Me dewy finish formula for dry skin...until they changed the lightest shade and now it's way too yellow. I'm a true porcelain neutral and went with the matte formula to get 102, but it's a little too dry for my dry skin though.

      Lahela G my skin type is pretty normal. every now & then it gets a little oily or dry but it doesn’t last long. the way the foundation goes on is super streaky & more runny than other foundations i’ve used

    • Lahela G
      Lahela G 5 months ago

      Bryanna Grace what’s your skin type? I just learned recently that it all depends on the types of foundations you use plus your skin type and the formula of the foundation you are using that all play into how it’s going to come out on your skin, which has explained SO MUCH for me.

    Oh I can name my holy grail easily. The Wet n Wild cushion foundation. It's satin to dewy, stays on all day even without setting it, looks so hydrating and smooth and skin-like on my face, and even though it has some SPF (I think), it doesn't show flashback in photos. I literally cannot get enough of it and I'm on my third one now. I wear the lightest shade 106A.

      Shahrin Prome If u have dry skin I would stay farrrr away from it. even with my oily skin on a well hydrated base, I look so dry. I mix in a drop of it with the maybelline fit me matte and poreless and it looks really nice and lasts pretty well.
