Since my last foundation swatch post, I’ve added a few more base products to my never-ending collection. While I was trying to find the best possible shade matches in these foundations and concealers, I had a hard time finding swatches for most of them because the ones I purchased are newer additions to the existing ranges. To help others who may be looking for similar shades (light medium and medium olive skin tones), here are some swatches for the following products: Dior Airflash Spray Foundation in 2.5 Warm Olive (321), Rare Beauty Concealer in 230N, Make Up For Ever Reboot Active Care Revitalizing Foundation in Y244 – Neutral Sand, and Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in Y373 Amber Honey. I’ll be using the Giorgio Luminous Silk foundation in 6, Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation in 3W1.5 Fawn, and the Pat McGrath Sublime Concealer in LM14 as comparators.Continue reading “SWATCHES | Light medium and medium olive foundations/concealers”
Well, I’ll cut right to the chase: it has been almost 2 years since my last blog post! What happened? Life. Life happened. Maybe someday I will get into what has been going on in the last 24 months (all good things, for the most part!), but today I will say goodbye to 2019, and the 10s with a short and sweet post.
Even though some time has passed, I was, and remain, a makeup obsessed person. So naturally I collected a small heap of products, with a few thoughts and opinions to go with them as well. To start, I’d like to share something I usually find very useful: swatches. Today, it will be swatches of all the foundations I currently own. I’m hoping that this will be of help to anyone who shares a similar skin tone to me.
Is it just me, or does it really feel like the years just blow by the older we get? Seriously, 2017 came and went in, what felt like, a blink of an eye! I’m disappointed in how sporadically I posted throughout the year, and I truly apologize for my lack of activity on this blog. Even though it may not have seemed like it based on what I’ve shared, this year has been incredible. I had so many life changes happening, and while I don’t regret anything, I wish I was able to document it a little more with you guys. I want to commit to being a better blogger in 2018 and actually review more of what I’ve acquired, so please stay tuned for (hopefully) much more content in the new year.
To close this year off, I’m going to stick to a common tradition here in the beauty community by listing off my favourite products of 2017. Even though I got my hands on so many different products, there were a few products that really were my main squeezes throughout the year. These products were my fool-proof, go-to #1’s – and I’m almost certain that many of these also made it onto other people’s favourite lists for the year as well. If you’d like to know why I thought these products made it to my top list of the year, please keep reading!
I can’t believe it’s already time for my first Project Pan update! I have to say, this experiment has been a little more difficult than I thought it would be, but I think I definitely made some great progress! I finished up/hit pan on many items on my list, so I’d say this first quarter has been quite successful. I’m having a bit of a hard time getting through some products, but I’m just trying to stay optimistic. This post is going to be long enough, so I’ll cut the rambling and just get on with it!
