Would you believe me if I told you that I have never bought a foundation from a drug store? It's true! I spend hours musing down the aisles of Superdrug and Boots, swatching away like the true blogger in me, trying to find the right shade and that's where my main problem with drug store foundation lies. How can I find my shade when I cannot try the foundation on in the shops? I stand around and look at other girls rubbing bits of foundation on their hands, turning to their friends saying "Ooh that's the perfect colour for me, I love this foundation" and then they purchase it. SERIOUSLY! You swatched your hand and now it's a holy grail foundation?! You know that the skin on your hand in no way matches your face right?! I bet 99.9% that it's not the right colour for you!
I cannot afford to purchase a foundation on the off chance that I "think" it's the right shade for me from a hand swatch. I want to know that I have the right shade for me first time. My solution is to get a sample pot and take a sample. Easy as that!
Here we have my super drug cream pots with 3 of the shades i thought i might be . I have only taken enough for one application of each shade, I'm not taking the mickey here, i genuinely want this foundation and I'm trying to find the right shade for me .
Which shade did i buy ?
I'm going to let you into a little secret , this review has been sitting in my drafts folder for months now as i just could not make my mind up on this foundation as over the last few months I've had a love / hate relationship with it . At first i loved it , thought it was amazing , best thing since sliced bread , but then things changed. I noticed the foundation was clogging up my pores , it tendered to sit on top on my skin and i just could not blend it at all, it was clinging to areas of dry patches on my skin so it got sidelined. A month passed and i thought id try it again and now I'm in love again! It doesn't clog up my pores anymore and blends flawlessly on my skin. Ive started to use it in combination with my mac msf i think I've struck gold on a great combination so for now this is my go to favourite foundation on the market , it has sidelined my foundations from mac and benefit .
