My Favorite Foundation - Day 4 of 30

Hey guys! Once again, apologies for having such huge gaps in between each day of the 30 Day Challenge. I know, I'm a very bad person and deserve a smack on the head, but hey, I'm here now!

A little information on my experience with foundations: I started using foundation about 3 years ago, which doesn't seem like a very long time ago. My first ever foundation was a powder foundation from The Body Shop (as you can all probably tell, I have an eternal love connection with The Body Shop). I was so excited about it, and I remember thinking it was a 'miracle product' when I first used it because my skin had never looked so flawless! Soon enough, I discovered liquid foundation and fell in love with it too. Now here's the catch with this post: I have never used a high-end foundation. I've been waiting for the longest time to get one, but when the time does come where I think I know what I want, I am either broke or need the money for something that I need and not want. Life playing its diabolical, meticulously thought out tricks on me eh? I've used a lot of drugstore foundations though but I've loved no foundation like I love this one:

This thing is AMAZING. It seriously works wonders on my face. It gives the most flawless finish I have ever had with any drugstore foundation. Now that I think about it, calling my first foundation a 'miracle product' was wrong of me to do. This product definitely deserves that title.

You can see the little glitter particles!

What's so amazing about this foundation you ask? One word: coverage. It has the perfect coverage for any occasion. Going to school? Apply half a pump. Night out? One pump. It has minute glitter particles in it that gives this glowy finish that I absolutely love. They make look like too much in the image above, but once blended, they only do good to your face. This obviously varies from skin to skin,  and this is the measurement for my skin; normal to dry combination, uneven complexion and a few marks (possibly from my brother ruthlessly scratching my FACE out of all places with his devilish claws when we were kids, according to my dear mother...). I don't have any blemishes (but can get them from time to time) or zits. In that case, this foundation covers it up quite well with the use of concealer over it. The only negative I have for this product is it can make you look white in flash photography because of the high SPF. Even with that in mind though, I still love this product to no end I want to try out the entire range!

I'm fairly certain that the concealer and the powder are not available in the UK yet, and the compact makeup has just been made available. I'm not too sure though, so do correct me if I'm wrong! 

Hope you enjoyed this! A high-end foundation just might blow this favorite out of the water, but hey, if you're on a budget and are looking for something that is just as good as NARS Sheer Glow (yes, it was compared to NARS Sheer Glow!), only cheaper, here is your answer. 

Keep a lookout for day 5 of the 30 Day Challenge featuring my favorite thing to do.

Thanks for visiting!
