Foundation Rotation


Up until the beginning of this year I used one foundation and one foundation only because I didn't think I could find anything else, so now fast forwards to recently, I've been switching between three foundations which I'm going to tell you about today.  All three are drugstore with a slight variation in price so hopefully there's one in here for everyone. 


L'oreal True Match in N1 

My first liquid foundation love. I've raved about this foundation before, it's medium coverage which still manages to look skin like. This stays put on my skin really well and will always be a staple in my foundation drawer. With the thickest formula of the three this helps to hide any redness/blemishes on my skin which is always helpful. 

Preferred Application ; Beauty Blender 

Brownie Points For ; Super staying power + Satin finish 

Perfect For ; When you know you'll be wearing foundation for a long amount of time 

Price ; £9.99 


Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in 110 Ivory 

I wanted to try this foundation for ages but always held off as I never thought the lightest colour would match my skin but when I swatched it one day in Boots I found that it blends really easily, meaning I suited the lightest shade (which is what I gravitate towards first!). I've done a review on this foundation recently which you can read here but in summary this is a light coverage foundation which gives a dewy finish and looks incredibly natural on the skin. 

Preferred Application ; Beauty Blender 

Brownie Points For ; The invisible-ness of the foundation 

Perfect For ; A flawless dewy light finish 

Price ; £8.99 


Rimmel Match Perfection in 010 Light Porcelain 

My most recent foundation edition which I picked up in Superdrug for a bargainous price of £4.99. This foundation is the palest of the three so worth a try if you're even paler than me. There is a slight sweet scent to this foundation but nothing off-putting, although if you have sensitive skin it may not agree. If L'oreal True Match and Revlon Nearly Naked had a baby, this would be it. Still light in coverage but offers more than R.N.N yet has the staying power of L.T.M. This has been the one I've grabbed for recently but I change foundation depending on the occasion/what I'll be doing. 

Preferred Application ; Fingers 

Brownie Points For ; The ease of application 

Perfect For ; When you have a limited amount of time to apply your makeup 

Price ; £6.99 

What are your favourite foundations?

  1. All three foundations sound amazing! I've been hearing so many raves about Loreal True Match, I really want to try it but I have so many foundations on the go right now! Hard to justify a foundation purchase hehe...

  2. True Match sounds like it's made for me! I love medium coverage foundations especially if they stay put. I've tried the Rimmel Match Perfection and the finish is nice but sadly broke me out!

  5. Loreal True Match is my everyday go to foundation, I cannot stop raving about it, it works so well! I would be interested to try the nearly naked foundation by Revlon as sometimes I don't feel like applying lots of make-up. This post is also a great help as my skin is so pale so I'm always struggling to find a pale shade x
