Over the past year I’ve found myself turning to more ‘high end’ foundations, with MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid and Clinque’s Even Better being a couple of my favourites. Now that I’ve tried a few high end foundations, I can’t see myself going back to a high street alternative. The application, the coverage and the exact colour match is just something that I can’t find with high street foundations, especially when it comes to finding a foundation that’s pale enough for me. I still don’t think I’ve found my ‘holy grail’ when it comes to foundation, but I’m finding some great products while I’m looking. Another one that’s made it to the favourite foundations list is Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation.

I was introduced to this by my friend Simone when I was last visiting up north. I’d never tried anything from Bobbi Brown, and after hearing Simone raving about their foundations I decided to get colour matched for one. At the time I wasn’t sure what I was looking for in a foundation, but after talking with the sales assistant I was recommended Skin. Skin foundation is a very lightweight, virtually invisible foundation. A few years ago I would have never considered this, but now I’m more confident with my skin I don’t want as heavier foundation as I used to use. Even though it’s a lightweight formula I find that it covers up any blemishes or redness that I might have.

Bobbi Brown is now on my list of favourite foundations, and I’ve still got a few more on my list to try. I’m thinking Estee Lauders Double Wear and Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua, anyone have any experience with these?
