This is my first “official” post here and I’m truly so excited! You can expect my blogs to be personal, as well as talking about beauty, fitness, and lifestyle topics. We all are just trying to figure out what the hell works! So welcome, and thank you for following me on my new journey. This blog is going to be fun and random, but thats me and I make no apologizes for it. I’m not trying to be like anyone else but me.
Enjoy Ladies xoxo Jackie
NYX Total Control Drop Foundation- Talk about liquid skin! Remember the Bare Minerals craze that had us all swirl, tap, and buffing to the gods. It was all about the makeup that looked like real skin. I’m torn, because although I appreciate a natural face that is effortless and chic, you know I like to beat the hell out of my face. This foundation is in its own category. NYX Total Control Drop Foundation is liquid skin. It’s long wearing, it smoothes out your pores, and it gives you a buildable coverage that can be customizable to whatever look you wish to achieve. If you have 3 kids and own a business and only have 5 minutes to do your makeup this is for you. If you have an hour and want to slay bitch slay, this is for you too. Out of all the foundations I have tried these past few weeks this truly is the most universal and desirable for all skin types.
Urban Decay All Nighter- All my oily ladies, all my oily ladies, now put your hands up… Ladies if your not in the oily as fuck club sadly this may not be for you. But for all my oily sisters this foundation is MATTE. Beware you only need 1 pump, don’t get ahead of yourself. This foundation is going to give you a true full coverage. One of the issues that oily girls encounter is not how it initially looks, but how does the foundation wear after 1hr, after 4 hrs, and if your lucky after 8hrs. Well you won’t need luck for this one because it holds up to all of our requirements. It gives you a flawless finish while also maintaining its matte look all day.
Dior Forever- Hello Lova. This foundation is pure luxury – the smell, the texture, the finish. Honey its Dior, would you expect anything less? What can I say about this that won’t sound as if Dior is paying me to promote them because I’m about to get pretty obsessive. The Dior Forever foundation gives you the snapchat smoothing filter with Instagram editing in a bottle. Thats right, and if you follow me on snapchat you saw it live in action. I went to a music festival in the Florida heat and my friends have never given me more compliments about my makeup in my life. I can not say enough about this foundation. It truly is incredible and everyone should own it. My only negative feedback would be the color choices. There are a lot of pink and neutral undertones in the line so if you are like me and have more of a yellow undertone there are a few but not many. Otherwise it truly flawless.
Maybelline Fit Me Poreless- Trust me when I say that $50 for a foundation is not cheap, and if I can bring myself to do it, it better be bomb. Luckily with Maybelline Fit Me Poreless you don’t have to. This foundation is only $7.99 and it’s absolutely incredible. You can expect a poreless and airbrushed finish. This will last for up to 8 hrs, and for an oily girl thats a pretty big deal. I am most impressed with the finish. Because I have pores all over, it can be a struggle to find a foundation that doesn’t highlight my insecurity. I need something thats going to smooth them to perfection. DUPE ALERT: This foundation is so similar to Dior Forever that its freaky! Finally, for you girls that may not love a matte look they also make a poreless foundation in a dewy finish. Whatttt? Thats right!
Smashbox Studio Skin- Alright, so you have a special event. Someones getting married, or your gonna be in front of the camera. You need to be 100% guaranteed that your face is going to stay flawless. This is your foundation. It truly lasted all day and did not break up or move. It didn’t blur my imperfections, but it didn’t execentuate them either. Smashbox Studio Skin is the better choice for normal, combo, and oily skin types when compared to the Urban Decay All Nighter. Some matte foundations can leave your skin feeling tight. Now personally this doesn’t bother me, but if your looking for the coverage of Urban Decay but without the tight matte feeling the Smashbox Studio Skin is definitly for you.
