Recently, I bought a new foundation. I decided to stop trying to find a good liquid foundation, because none of them seemed to work with my oily skin, even the ones for oily skin! I did my research, and it literally was days of deciding, reading reviews, etc. but I finally decided on one. The one I chose was Laura Mercier Wet/Dry Powder Foundation. OH.MY.GOSH. Seriously best makeup decision ever haha! I love this. It is long wearing, keeps my face looking matte (but I don’t feel like I look just flat and boring) and super versatile. It is medium/full coverage when using the sponge wet, and light/medium when using a dry puff or brush for application. I cannot say enough good things about it. The color is also perfect for me, even though I ordered it online. Here is what it looks like on my skin, without editing the picture:
And here is another:
I think this would be great for girls with combination to oily skin types. For drier skin, I think it could still work if using a moisturizing primer first. I do not have much to cover (luckily) besides some redness, and occasional pimple. I basically use it for giving a "flawless" complexion on the days I don't want to be 'au naturale', and for oil control. SERIOUSLY IT'S PERFECT. I think I found my favorite foundation. The packaging pictures are in a previous post, but here is a picture from Sephora:
This puff comes in the box that the product comes in; I keep it in the cardboard box and rarely use it. If you can see the bottom part of this picture shows another compartment. This holds a sponge. The bottom compartment has holes in it so the compact isn't retaining as much moisture as it would in a fully enclosed compact.
If this looks like something you want to try, then I FULLY recommend it. It's a bit pricey, and will set you back about $40. However, I think it is really worth it!
Have you tried this product? What is your favorite foundation?
