Finally took some time during the long weekend to try these liquid foundations and do a comparison between them! Here's my review on the products and I hope this will prove useful to some of you :) Firstly, a little background on my skin type - I have combination skin, with an oily "T-Zone" area, while the skin around my cheeks, eyes and mouth is usually dry. Just a note that what suits my skin type might not suit yours, so it'd be good to do some homework before committing to a bottle! ;)
I generally only use foundations for events or days when I need to look more polished. The skin needs prepping before foundation (or any makeup for that matter) can be applied. A good way to prep the skin is to have your regular 3-step routine (cleanse, tone & moisturize), then apply a primer to get the face makeup ready! Remember to apply sunblock if necessary.
A good trick to reduce wastage is to pour/pump small amounts on the back of your hand, and replenish only if necessary. Using a foundation brush will help give an air-brushed effect, though blending may be less easy compared to using a sponge.
These are the RMK makeup products I currently use and so far they've been working really well for me. There's definitely room for improvement packaging wise, but I still love them to bits! Am now on the hunt for good primers & loose powders, do you girls have any to recommend? In the meantime, I had requests to try out Dior, Cle de Peau & Chanel liquid foundations. Does anyone know how I can get samples for these brands? If so, do let me know!
Till our next beauty chat! Xx
