My Absolute Favourite Foundations: Fenty Beauty, Too Faced, Loreal, La Girl



Hi Divas

Complexion products are my number one items that I cannot live without. I would probably take it with me on a desert island and have it be on my top ten list of essentials. When I first started wearing makeup at the age of 15, I only used black eyeliner and a gloss. I never bothered to cover up any imperfections on my face as I was young and carefree. Fast forward a few years later, I have ditched the gloss and constant lower black liner. As I have gotten older, I realised how much I value a smooth and radiant complexion over anything else. I would rather splurge on a holy grail foundation than another 16 pan eyeshadow palette. I love the euphoria of watching my dark circles and life problems disappear under a layer of foundation with my kabuki brush. I know I am being dramatic, but that step is honestly so satisfying to me. I have therefore tested many foundation formulas and tried an array of awful shades to find the true gems that suit me. I will be recommending my holy grail foundations that work for my normal to combination skin and medium skin tone with yellow to olive undertones. I mention my skin type and colour undertones as what may work for me, may not be great for you regarding dry to oily skin or someone with a different skin tone to me. Please be aware of that as you read my recommendations.


Too Faced Peach Perfect
 I'm starting off with the cutest foundation packaging out of the 5 products. It comes in a tube with a gold pump. I love the peach details on the packaging. I only recently started using this but I decided to add it to my collection as I love the easy application and quick results it gives me. This is a medium coverage foundation that is very matte yet super comfortable to wear. I love using this as an everyday base product as it gives the most natural finish and my face still looks airbrushed. The shade Warm Beige is great for me because it has the right amount of warmth and it does not oxidize throughout the day. The tube is great for a quick application and is very travel friendly too. I recommend it to someone who loves a matte finish and a natural looking appearance. I do prefer to wear this in the Summer months since it is so matte and you will need to use a hydrating moisturizer in the Winter to pull this one off. Full Review Here.

Fenty Beauty Pro' Filtr
I'm going to come out and say it now! This is the best foundation in formula and in shade that I have ever used. I have received so many compliments from many people telling me that my face looks flawless when I wear it. This is a matte foundation and gives a medium to full coverage. It literally hides all my imperfections in one sweep. It blends wonderfully into my skin and looks like a dream. The shade 290 has warm and olive undertones which miraculously fits me like a second skin. The shades in this foundation do apply lighter in tone but oxidizes to its true shade after a few minutes. I find that the shades do get warmer throughout the day but it just blends so effortlessly into my natural complexion. I love it! Regarding performance, this foundation lasts all day with no cracking or fading. If you have dry skin make sure to moisturize well before use. Packaging is sleek, pretty and equipped with a pump in a glass bottle. It can be heavy to travel with but I don't mind though. Full Review Here.

L'oreal Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear
 The performance and formula of this foundation is very similar to Too faced Peach Perfect except it has more coverage. Can you believe that a low-end base has more coverage than a high end one? Believe it because it is true! This is a lightweight and matte foundation that is very comfortable and breathable on the skin. It gives a natural appearance and can be built up to fuller coverage. This is great for everyday wear and is very long lasting too. The only con is that the shades do oxidize. I have the shade 260 Golden Sun and it definitely gets one to two shades darker throughout the day. I have to go one shade down to make it a perfect fit for me. Do keep this in mind when purchasing the product. The packaging is not my favourite as it has that chunky L'oreal block design with a stumpy pump. It's not sleek but it gets the job done. It is in my top favourites as I love the way it wears and the coverage is great. I really do feel it out shines Too Faced Peach Perfect regarding coverage as well. Full Review Here.

LA Girl Pro Matte
This is my ultimate favourite low-end foundation. I don't know why this product does not get the hype and love it deserves. It is perfect for combination to oily skin types as it gives a comfortable matte finish. I love using it on hot Summer days. It can cling to very dry patches, therefore do wear a hydrating moisturizer or primer in those areas. The formula reminds me of Fenty Beauty Pro' Filtr as it has the same texture and consistency when blended out on the face. It gives great coverage and lasts throughout the day too. The shade Light Tan is perfect for my Summer skin tone because it has a warm yellow undertone. Even though Fenty gives a much more filtered look this one can easily be considered a dupe for it. The packaging is sleek and comes with a pump. I have travelled with the glass bottle before and it was very easy to pack into my makeup bag. This is the cheapest foundation out of the 5 and you get great value for your money. I will keep repurchasing because I love it so much. Full Review Here.

Too Faced Born This Way
I'm going to come out and say it again! This is one of the best foundations I have ever used.
This too was my first ever Sephora foundation purchase and my very first high-end foundation. I have fond nostalgic memories of it. Since then, I have gone through two bottles and am now onto the third. The packaging comes in a luxurious glass bottle with a pump. The gold details on the bottle and box make the product look very luxe. The formula and texture of the foundation is creamy, slightly thick yet blends effortlessly onto the face. The product contains coconut water and hyaluronic acid which makes it very hydrating on the skin. I therefore only wear this in Winter and Autumn because it gives me a hydrating satin finish. It always looks beautiful on the skin and it gives me full coverage with a healthy glow. The shade Warm Beige is great for my Winter skin tone as you can't even tell I'm wearing foundation when I have it on. I may need to go up a shade and use Sand in Summer time though. The performance is wonderful and I sometimes forget I'm wearing makeup since the foundation feels so comforting on the skin. This is the most expensive foundation out of the 5 but you seriously getting what you pay for. Both the packaging, performance and formula is top notch. I would repurchase till the end of days, LOL.
