makeup, beauty, foundation, genifique,
Wow, its been well over a month since my last post (nearly 2 months) and I cannot believe I haven't uploaded anything since March - I deserve a slap on the wrist *covers face*. So, without further ado - lets get into my most loved, reliable foundation from Lancôme. I already spoke about my top 5 foundations in this post but when it finally (it lasts a long time) ran out, I didn't rush to repurchase. Big mistake! It will neverrrrrrrr happen again. I started using some of the other foundations I have - because I had this 'smart' idea to actually use up the rest of my foundation collection before I buy another one and quite frankly that has to be one of the silliest ideas I've had in a while.

  1. No foundation is the same. So, yes you may have 5 other types of foundations, similar shades but they all have different strengths.
  2. Choose one. YES, ONE foundation you know will not let you down. You need a foundation that can make you look like Beyoncé on a bad day - yes Beyoncé lol!
  3. No harm in looking for new foundations but always get a sample first - don't say I didn't warn you. Department/make up store lighting can be very deceiving - and unlike our American friends, I find most companies will not take makeup back once its been opened.
 Back to the matter - Lancôme doesn't break me out. Perfect colour match. It has SPF, lasts for a number of hours before I have to blot (being the oil slick that I am). The coverage is buildable so it can be worn to work or special events depending on how beat you want your face to look. I was considering buying the Nars All Day Luminous foundation (which I will review soon) but my bestie told me to just get a sample so I can buy the Lancôme Teint Idole - and I'm so happy I listened to her. Once I started using it, I couldn't understand why I didn't repurchase sooner - you live and you learn ay. For me, nothing has come close to the way I feel about this product - (well foundation wise anyway) its perfection in a bottle!
