Review: Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation

The Dior Forever Skin Glow is a new range of foundation under the Forever line, which was released early this year. It is actually a reformulation of (my holy grail) Diorskin Forever foundation. But other than a velvet matte finish foundation, they also released a radiant finish variant.

My shade is 2W

Description and ingredients

The new Dior Forever foundation comes in a glass bottle with pump. I like its new bottle design because it’s not bulky and easy to store and even pack for travel. It contains 30ml of product and has SPF35 PA++.

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion

I meant to update on my project pan last year and give a list of products for project pan this year, but I’ve been testing out makeup since I “shopped my stash” that I forgot.

Anyway, today I will review the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion.

This cushion wasn’t on my wish list nor did I have any interest in it, but Guerlain had this irresistible sale that included this. I seriously need to stop getting tempted by big offers. XD

Pony Effect Defense Longwear Cushion Foundation in Sand

I was curious with cushion foundations, but knowing it has less product and could cost the same or more compared to a full-size bottle foundation has kept me from trying it. However, I could see it so convenient for travel. As I had a few trips lined up last year, I had the urge to get one. So I got my hands on Pony Effect Defense Longwear Cushion Foundation. Gotta have a Korean brand for my first cushion foundation. 馃檪

Essence All About Matt! Oil-Free Make-up Foundation

22 May 2018 Update: After this post, I eventually had different thoughts on this foundation. So I’m updating this review, but the gist of it is it’s okay but I won’t repurchase nor recommend anymore.

I’ve been interested with Essence makeup, so I took advantage of their sale and got a few products including the Essence All About Matt! Oil-Free Make-up foundation.

(I forgot to remove that sticker on cap.)

Mattifying, oil-free foundation for a flawless and radiant finish. covers imperfections without clogging the pores. the formulation is long-lasting and moisturzing. dermatologically tested.

Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 in 66 True Beige

I realized I didn’t say why the lack of updates in this post. Returning to blogging was difficult with the sudden workload after my trip, though I’m slowly getting back to the groove.

Anyway, I have a foundation review, which I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about. I used this before and almost forgot about it.

Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer

All these years wearing makeup, I never used a primer until recently. I want to make my makeup last longer and prevent oiliness for at least 6 hours. The weather and office conditions make my face produce more oil than it usually does. 馃槙 I consulted Google and found two options including this primer I’m about to review.

I would consider my other option in spite its high price tag, but I remembered I had a tester of the original Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. So I took that out, tried it, and was very impressed how it made my makeup look.

Most favorite (at the moment) drugstore foundation and concealer!

July has passed and I wasn’t able to review the rest of the makeup I was using then. But, actually, only the foundation and concealer are left, both of which I still use. They could still be part of my August makeup routine because I ♥ them both! In order of how I put them on, I’ll begin the reviews with foundation then concealer.

Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation 130 Buff Beige

This drugstore foundation has very good reviews and has been highly recommended for those with oily combination skin.

A bottle contains 30ml or 1.0 fl.oz. of product

I don’t think I have any cons, but only pros on this drugstore foundation.

  • Truly matte with medium to heavy coverage
  • Unscented
  • Yellow-toned
  • Eight-hour longevity and sometimes longer before any shininess peers through
  • Easy to blend (with fingers)
