I am DETERMINED to find THE perfect foundation!!!!!!!! GAH!!!

I feel like I've tried wayyyy too many of the foundations out there. TOO MANY.
You all know I'm a foundation junkie and I am obsessed with finding the perfect foundation for me. lol!

Just look at all the samplings I'm going through now:

Photobucket
It's kind of ridiculous, I know, lol!
And this doesn't even include all the foundations I've tried/ owned...

I am going to try to list ALL the foundations I have ever tried/owned, and I'm going down alphabetical order so I can keep track XD the list is super long you're warned! Are you ready?! XD

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

bareMinerals Matte Powder Foundation (which I do really enjoy cuz it's very quick and natural)

Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation
(Want to try BB Skin Foundation as well lol)

Chanel Teint Innocence compact foundation (looks dry and powdery on me)
Chanel Mat Lumiere
Chanel Vitalumiere
Chanel Lumiere Aqua

Chantecaille Future Skin Gel Foundation (looks cakey at the end of the day and slips easily)

Clarins Instant Smooth Mousse Foundation

Cle de peau BEAUTE cream foundation (good but not outstanding and wayy over-priced)
Cle de peau BEAUTE cream compact foundation (good also over-priced)
Cle de peau BEAUTE refining fluid foundation (bad cuz it's ultra sheer... almost no coverage and horrible staying power)

Dior Hydra Life Tinted Moisturizer

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
Estee Lauder Equalizer Foundation

Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation (they do not have my shade... dammit)

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (it's good but I really think it's overrated)
Giorgio Armani Face Fabric Foundation

(However I desperately want to try Maqui Miracle Natural Brightening Creator Compact Foundation that is only available in Asia!)

Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation (sooo heavy! looks kind of cakey on me)
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Foundation (too heavy as well)

  1. I can't wait! I love base/foundation posts (because that is probably the most worn MU product for me) :P Such a long list and so many high end ones! I wish I had the guts to as the people at the department store for samples lol I'm afraid of them judging me =X

    Maybe you could get/try the Lancome Maqui Miracle Natural Brightening Creator Compact Foundation when you go to taiwan?

  3. Do you need lots to cover? I know based from the list you are more prone to high-ends when it comes to foundations but I heard Maybelline's Fit Me is quite lightweight on the skin and looks natural. Also heard that it is sheer though..

  4. Do you like BB creams? I think you've tried every foundation I would ever suggest! LOL

  5. I have the Pro-Longwear and my color is just SO wrong for me. The first time I used it.. it was perfect! But it's like it oxidizes or something and then just went really dark D: I'm LOVING the Revlon Active though. It's light, easy to blend and looks super natural! : D You should try it!

    Thanks for the comment! Hahaha, I totally cheated SOOO many people with that title ; D Mwahah! What a girl wouldn't do for some extra points. Haha! I'm glad you liked the comment : D I try to stay active on as many active blogs that I follow as possible D: it's really difficult when Blogger only shows a specific amount of updated blogs.. All the 'older' ones that I don't get to check just 'disappear' in the crowd of new entries.. EGHHH so stressful! Haha! But yeah.. I try my best <3

    HAHA! I wish I could do the O_Ô face as well -_-" But I can't. I just do the Ô_Ô face. Hahaha! That one looks more confused than 'huh?' though.. I dunno.. I try to come up with epic smileys that go with my EPIC comments! HAHAHA... not.

    And I didn't BUY the oreos. : D They came in the care package from my friend overseas. I love Oreos - so he got me some! WOOOH for good friends! We can get them here though.. But they're really expensive -__-" Kinda like how the O.P.I Shatter polish is between 6-10 dollars in the US right? Well here at a drugstore.. it's about 28 bucks. CRAZZZYYY~ The regular Essie and O.P.I polishes cost 28 as well. It's sick. *packs bags and goes to the US* I'm done with this Beauty-discriminating country! m(T___T#)m

  7. Hello,
    When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
