My Favourite Series....Part 2 Foundation

Hi Ladies!

So this evening its time for part two of the my favourite series - foundation, and for me the top spot goes to Stila's illuminating liquid foundation :-)

This has been my favourite foundation from the first day I ever applied it - It is heaven in a bottle! I use 10 watts which is the lightest shade and a really good colour match for me (I'm a MAC NW15 if not slightly lighter than that!). This foundation is a light to medium coverage, but it is buildable, I apply it with my MAC 187. The bottle has a pump which is something I am always grateful for as its helps you to control the amount of product you use, 1 pump is usually enough for me! (an extra half pump for nights out!). The nicest thing about this foundation is the amazing healthy glow it gives you! This is something I had always wanted from a foundation, but could never quite get right untill I got my mits on this little baby! People always seem to comment and say I am looking ''very well'' whenever I am wearing this! Even though this is a lighter coverage than most of my other foundations it lasts really well and rarely needs topping up throughout the day, I normally set it with a little MAC mineralize skinfinish natural and that helps it to stay put :-)

The only problem with this foundation is that very sadly Stila products are no longer available in the UK! :-( There used to be a Stila counter in my local department store so it was always really easy to pick this up, now...not so much! Thankfully there are still some UK websites which stock this (sorry I don't know the names off the top of my head!) and you can pick it up at sephora if you are ever on holiday! Luckily for me my lovely boyfriend usually picks this up for me before we go on holiday as a pre holiday present, he also got me some for christmas this year so I won't be running out of Stila anytime soon! Also I'm not sure how much this foundation costs now, when you could get it from stila in the UK it was around £27.00 so it is a little pricey, but for me, worth every penny :-)

and now to the runners up!

  • MAC studio fix - always a winner

  • Estee Lauder Double wear - Heavier coverage, but a fab foundation

  • Loreal Infallible - Great staying power
