Fall 2016 sees the launch of Dior DreamSkin Perfect Skin Cushion which is a new cushion foundation with a high level of solar protection, offering SPF 50. If this product may seem familiar to you is because I blogged about it 7 months ago when I was announcing it as a spring 2016 launch. And yes it was a spring release, because in Asia is known under the name of Dior Diorsnow Bloom Perfect Cushion SPF 50 (info, photos) and is part of Dior Diorsnow Collection. So, by the end of the summer this foundation will pop up on international counters as well but with a different name.

Receive about two weeks ago, Chanel Mat Lumiere Luminous Matte Foundation was one that I’ve been meaning to try for a long time. Its actual name is Chanel Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15, which I have to admit is kind of a long one but at the same time is a very explicit name, one that it kind of says it all, hardly needing a description. So it’s obvious that we are talking about a matte finish foundation with a long lasting formula, but since it also mentions “luminous” among other words, I was convinced I’m going to see more than just a flat matte finish result.
Where to buy:
International – Now Sephora, Douglas and other Chanel Counters and online @davidjones.com
Chanel Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Foundation SPF 15 ($74.00 for 30 ml / 1 fl oz) in No.20 Clair is the right shade for me as a light skin toned.

Revlon Colorstay Makeup Foundation has been for years America’s most-loved longwear foundation and also awarded by beauty bloggers as the best drugstore foundation with a medium-full coverage. This year it returns with a new formula, a convenient pump applicator and SPF.

Estee Lauder presents Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup, as its new summer 2016 foundation. I absolutely love the idea of an Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation with a built-in cushion tip which is also detachable for cleaning. Reading more about this product on ReallyRee’s blog I found out two more interesting things like the fact that you can pull back in the product in case you twist out too much and you will also know when it’s time to replenish as the stick gets smaller in time with each use. This is definitely a smart makeup tool and I hope it will be just as famous as Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation.

I received Essence Soft Touch Mousse Make-Up the other week, as I’m lately on the look out to replace my go-to mousse foundation which is Max Factor Whipped Creme as it has been discontinued for a while. I don’t have any skin problems so I’m just looking for a simple foundation with an airy or mousse-like formula that will be easy to apply with my fingers and will give me a matte or semi matte finish.

I remember Revlon Colorstay foundation as being the second foundation I used and even then, back in the days was named the best drugstore foundation. I know everyone recommended it as being the foundation that will amazingly hide all your skin imperfections, conceal everything and help you whenever you have a bad face day. I know teenagers are crazy for this foundation and even in my opinion is the best full coverage foundation that doesn’t make you look cakey or like you are wearing a mask.
The good news is that Revlon has updated its Colorstay Makeup foundation formula and has also renew the packaging launching the new product in a bottle that comes with a pump.
I have to admit that the old packaging was a downsize for me, as even though it was easy to shake the bottle in order to mix the product, I was not very fond of the idea of getting the liquid straight of the bottle.
In the past I tried the combination/ oily formula and it was a perfect match for my skin needs back then, as I used to work in the place where people smoked all the time and my complexion needed some extra protection (that’s the reason why I started to use foundation at the age of 25).
