This took me quite some time but I can say I am finally into foundations. I want to try every kind, write detailed reviews on them and compare them to each other. Let me know in the comments below if you would be interested in something of that sort.

I am a fan of weightless, natural and medium but buildable coverage foundations and that’s exactly what I was looking for while trying different foundation in Centerpoint aisles. I had my eyes on Maybelline Fit Me Foundation for a while now but never got around to purchasing it until recently.

I purchased Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation in shade 115 Ivory. It comes in a thick rectangular transparent glass bottle with the same size black top. The packaging is so sturdy, it slipped on the tiles in my room and I almost scream out because I was sure it was going to break into pieces but it did not. It just got a little dent on the side. I was so happy. It has a pump to extract the lose consistency foundation which is another thing I love about it. Pumps just make life so much easier.

I personally love Maybelline Fit Me foundation and find it incredible. It is extremely light on the face and very blendable. I use about one and a half or two pumps of it. It is quite liquidy so it gives you about two to three minutes to set it before it settles. I mostly apply it with my fingers in a stippling motion and that gives it a flawless velvety finish. As we all know, matte looks is so 2014 and velvety finish is what’s in these days, so I believe this is one of the best foundations out there. I have also tried applying it with my Sigma 3DHD Kabuki brush and that has been good too. I however prefer the latter method more.

It evens out in no time and blurs any acne marks or spots you’d like not to show. It has medium coverage but you can always build it on. I prefer keeping mine medium and more natural so I don’t often go the buildable way. On days when I don’t feel like doing the whole makeup routine I simply just put this on to even out my skin tone as my nose is darker than any other area. I also like to use Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 20 to brighten up my eye area.

Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation comes in so many shades and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a really good quality drugstore foundation or if you are a newbie trying out makeup for the first time and don’t want to go all hardcore yet. I think this foundation is going to be a staple in my makeup stash from now on and I might repurchase it in two months time because I am already 25% through with this bottle, ha.

What is your favorite drugstore foundation? I would love to try some new ones. Let me know in the comments below. 🙂

Love,

FOTD with New Drugstore Purchases

I thought to do a Face of The Day with some products I recently bought. I haven’t done any FOTD posts before so if you like it, do let me know and I might post some more. 🙂

This is an everyday kind of a look for me these days. Starting from primer, I don’t own one and rely on my The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream. My skin has been acting up recently and I have got dry patches on my cheeks. I prep my skin by apply the Moisture Cream as it hydrates those dry patches instantly and gives me an even canvas to apply my foundation on. I take my newly purchased Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation in shade 115 Ivory. This is such an incredible foundation. I had been eyeing it since forever and I finally get the chance to experiment with it. I use about one and a half or two pumps. It is liquid so it gives you about two to three minutes to set it before it settles. I don’t use a foundation brush yet and apply it with my fingers in a stippling motion. Maybelline Fit Me gives a smooth finish and feels weightless on the skin – definitely my kind of foundation. I will do a detailed review on it soon. For blusher I went for a light pink tone without any contouring this time.

Once done with the face I go for the eyes. I keep it quite basic. I use Maybelline The Colossal Kajal in Black/Noir on my water line. If I don’t use any kajal/kohl my eyes look quite dead/sad. For eyeshadow I went for an orange color with copper/rust touch. For eyeliner I use Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in shade 01 Blackest Black Noir Intense. An easy to use liquid pen eyeliner that stays on for half a day at least. Its my most favorite and recommended eyeliner. For Lashes I use Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara. This is an amazing Mascara as it gives such a great volume to your lashes without clumps. Love this product. Detailed review for this one will be up soon too.

For lips I use Maybelline Baby Lips in 05 Quenched to prep them as it sinks in real quick and doesn’t leave much of a residue. I apply my lipstick on top of it. Here I used Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in number 12. It is a bright orange that I bought as compensation to MAC So Chaude. I tried So Chaude and I don’t think I can rock that color (This doesn’t guarantee I won’t buy it). Rimmel Kate Moss in number 12 looks much better on me. If you dap your lips on a tissue paper after applying this lipstick, it gives a salmon color which looks quite good too.

I hope you guys liked this post! If you did do leave a comment below!
