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!!
