Makeup Look & Makeup Review


I bought an Avon powder recently- the Smooth Minerals powder to be exact- and I honestly hate it. It's got shimmer galore in it and made my face look funky. I don't know how to describe it- so I went old school and got the CoverGirl Clean pressed powder. Walmart was having this little combo for sale- $8.49!! For the foundation and the powder. So, I included a full face picture to show both on my face besides the eye look.


On my eyes I used different loose pigments and again, was in a hurry so I don't remember which ones they were...But it was a light pink, a bright purple, and a gold in my crease. Lol- how helpful!


This of course was over NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk on my lid alone to make the pink stand out. I find that using pink alone makes it barely noticeable. Below is my full face with the above foundation and powder on. It was a quick pic since I was already headed out. On my lips- L'Oreal Colour Juice in Cherry On Top.


My honest opinion on this foundation- not bad for the price, but not my favorite.  It's water based and I honestly loved the fact that it felt like I didn't have anything on, but it's not a matte finish. It's a bit shiny-not shimmery like the Avon powder, just shiny. Once you apply the powder though, it sets wonderfully and looks very natural. Lasting power- well, like 4 hours maybe. It rubs off very, very easily but if you keep the powder with you to freshen it up it's just fine. This is definitely a light coverage foundation. The powder is light to mediumish coverage. They both smell like Noxema big time! So, if you are not into that smell- do not buy!! I happen to like the smell for some reason so it's ok for me. I will be keeping this as my easy, light for school foundation. To go out I will be sticking to my favorite L'Oreal Infallible foundation that has never let me down and gives me the most awesome finish ever. Hope this was helpful. Till next time!!

    1. It's a lot of trial and error with foundations! I've had so many- this one is something that sweats right off! lol- I seriously think you should try the Revlon Colorstay or the MAC foundations if you want something that's really good.
