Foundation Collection !

I thought I'd show you a peak of my foundation collection. I have 16 different ones at the moment which is a bit excessive but i do actually use them all. I've never been a foundation snob and I'm happy to try any foundation out before making judgment.

Foundations

I tend to wear these next 5 if i'm wanting a fuller coverage.
 Rimmel 25hr, Clinique Dewy Smooth, Estee Lauder Doublewear in 2 different shades, Clinique repairware



The next 6 i wear if i want moderate coverage

Clinique even better, revlon colourstay, clarins skin illusion, chanel pro lumiere, revlon photo ready, stila illuminating foundation

These 4 i tend to wear when i want a natural look

Mac Face & Body, Clinique gentle light in 2 shades, airbase



This stick foundation is really old and discontinued from clinique. Its a few shades darker and i use it for contouring purposes. I cant bear to get rid of it as its still creamy and i cant buy it again :(


My latest foundation is the clarins illusion and i love it. A review coming very soon on this one

Unfortunately i am running out of room as you can see they are all kind of thrown in this drawer with concealers, powders and highlighters. Eeeek i hate disorganisation.



If there are any foundations on here you want me to review for you just let me know. How many is too many in your opinion ?

  2. Finally someone who beats my collection of 13! I love foundation, it is the most important aspect of creating a look (well to me anyway). Chanel Matt Lumiere is going to be my next purchase xxx

  11. Love that you divided these up into what you use depending on the amount of cover you want, its a really helpful way of seeing foundations I think! Looking forward to the clarins post! x

  14. I've only got 2 foundations! Bourjois Healthy Mix (summer colour, boo) and MAC Mineralize Satinfinish. I may try the 25hr one, as I want a fuller coverage and a friend uses it. I find my MAC foundation is too dewy and I feel it floats on top of my skin rather than actually 'adhering' to my skin.

  18. You have a great collection here, I am really struggling with base at the moment. Being a TM girl (ha no longer a girl!)I still can't quite get over the fact that foundation formulations have improved over the years, and whilst I now need more coverage, I can't stop my application from making me look a bit mask like. I will peruse this post at leisure. Thankyou. Jan x

  19. I can't wait for the clarins skin illusion foundation review as I might be buying it soon! I had their Truly Matte one and ran out totally loved it!

  20. Thanks so much for all your comments
    Cowbiscuits i dont have any of the mac ones but do i really like the pro longwear which i got a sample for. I dont think mac shades are that great though and i find it hard to get a good match.
    Chanel pro lumier is an amazing foundation, i have done a review if you just type it in the search box. The colours seem to have a wider choice too.

    Perhaps nip to Clinique and estee lauder to see if they might give you a sample as they have some fab foundations too and lots of colour choice xx

    I have a couple of tinted moisturisers and a few powder foundations too but didnt add these in as i thought the post would go on forever lol

  23. There are never too many for a foundation freak like me! Great foundation collection :)

  24. Whoa, so many! I only have one, Revlon Colourstay My skin is such a weird shade and foundation always applies weird, so I'm too scared to venture outside the box XD

  25. wow you actually beat me and I thought I was a foundation junkie =P But I think investing in foundation is ok coz your skin changes and you need to mix it up a lil from time to time.. We get bored of the same thing over and over again =P

  26. Clearly you love Clinique as do I. I also used to have that Clinique stick foundation and used every last bit of it. I bought a Bobbi Brown stick foundation thinking it would be the same but it's too heavy.

    If you have too many foundations then I have too many scrubs so we are both even! :D

  27. Wow! from your whole collection I actually only used the Chanel pro lumiere. I've always had difficulty finding a good foundation but seems like using so many different ones is the easy way out :P Will definitely build my collection up!
