Today it is time for part 5 of my Makeup Collection.
Today is foundations, pressed powders, face primers & setting sprays.

I know it sounds like a lot to put together, but it's really not.
Next week will probably be blushes, bronzers & highlights.

Anyway, on to the collection!

See, not very many products.
I'm a face product snob, and by that I mean, I refuse to buy them unless I have to.
I live in constant fear of breakouts, cystic acne & dry skin.

Primers first.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer: I like it. It's smooth & keeps my foundation on longer. But, I don't use it often as I think it causes me to break out.

L'oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base: This is another that I like. It smooths my pores & dryness. It doesn't make my face flawless, but it helps. 

Pixi Flawless and Poreless: This is my favorite. I got it in my Ipsy bag, and I've been hoarding it. It hides my pores and dryness, makes my face smooth, helps my foundation to last and gives it a natural look. I'm a fan of the product, not of the price tag. $29 is a bit much, but I may do it anyway.

Okay, Foundations/BB Creams

L'oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Skin Makeup: Yep, that's a mouthful. I see a lot of hate toward this foundation, but I love it. That being said I have very, very dry skin. It doesn't accentuate it and it has a light/medium coverage. It blends nicely & has a nice dewy finish. Not to mention, the package has a pump and who doesn't love a pump? It's downfall is that it does transfer & it doesn't last super long. Full review here.

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm: This was my first B.B. Cream, and I love it. Light coverage, easily blended, nice color match, moisturizes my skin, and lasts for a while. I'm in love with this B.B. Cream. It retails for ~$40, but I'll repurchase anyway. Full review here

Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream: I recently reviewed this. It has it's very good & very bad qualities. I have a love hate with it. Full review here.

Revlon Colorstay Dry Skin Formula: I used to really like this foundation. I always mixed it with a moisturizer to sheer it out, as I feel that it's too cakey & covers too much. If you're looking for full coverage at the drugstore, this is it.

Face Powders!

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural: I love this powder. It's really a great powder. It's soft, not cakey, and gives you the most natural finish imaginable. It also offers a little coverage. It's price tag is it's downfall. $29 is a bit much.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder: I recently got this, and I love it. It's almost a complete dupe for the MAC powder, and it's only $5. I totally recommend it! Full review here.

Setting Spray!

I only have one!

MAC Fix+: This keeps my makeup from looking powdery, and that's why I love it. Before this I used e.l.f. setting spray, and it worked pretty well, but I think the MAC performs better.

So, that's it for this week!
Hope you enjoyed it!
