Foundation 'Collection'

So it occurred to me the other day that I own a couple of bottle of foundation. Well I say a couple I mean 12 and adding.

I am going to use this as an opportunity to do some mini bullet point reviews on some the foundations that I own instead of having lots of big different ones. I have had most of these foundations for a pretty long time but a couple are far too dark for me from when I used to tan and just was never really into make-up and didn't know what I was doing. The foundations, mainly being drugstore, I just can't seen to get rid of and I don't know why but I like to see them and some I want to give another go.

Coverage - Medium/Full
Consistancy - Very Thick (will not come out of the pump anymore)

Overall - Not a fan

L'Oreal Infalible Lasting Perfecting Foundation

Price - £12.29
Shade - 120 Golden Beige
Finish - Slightly dewy

Rimmel Wake me up SPF 15

Overall - If this was in the correct shade then I would love this foundation, I will get round to buying my shade eventually

Avon Ideal Flawless SPF 15 Foundation

Price - £12 (see Avon representative for catalogue)
Shade - Natural Beige could go lighter

I am going to re-try this foundation out as I didn't really give it a chance so I may to a full review on this foundation in the future.

Revlon Colour Stay 

Price - £8.99
Shade - 330 Natural Tan (again it is ridiculously too dark for me, what was I thinking?)
Coverage - Full
Finish - I would say Matte
Lasting Power - In all honesty I didn't wear the foundation for more than 15 minutes due to the completed colour 'match' fail!
Overall - I don't have a full opinion on this product but after wearing it for a little while I didn't see anything to make me want to run back to Superdrug to buy a new one.

Revlon Nearly Naked ( review coming soon )
