I feel like I've really spammed my blog with single product reviews recently so i thought I'd shake things up and re-introduce a series i did on my blog a few years ago. I also thought it'd be quite interesting to bring back the top 5 series and to see how different my products are especially as time as gone on and my collection has grown.

This list is in no particular order - first up in this series is foundations; over the past couple of years I've tried quite a few foundations, ranging from both high end to high street and light to high coverage.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation | Review Here
This is the latest addition to my collection and quite possible my 'holy grail' - it's a waterbased foundation with a very light coverage but its easy to build up and it doesn't leave you cakey looking. I love how flawless this makes my skin look and although, It is quite expensive at £33 but i personally think its worth every penny.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
This is the only foundation that I've actually repurchased (it's quite rare, i fully finish a foundation) It has a light yet buildable coverage and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. This foundation has an anti-fatigue effect which helps the skin look more awake - this is a great foundation to use on days when you're skin is looking a bit dull and you're feeling tired and want to give the illusion that you're more awake. This foundation is a little more purse friendly at £8.99

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation* | Review Here
This was my go-to foundation throughout last summer! It's very lightweight so it's not very heavy on the skin (hence the name, nearly naked) which is perfect for those days that are really warm but you need a bit of coverage. I'd actually say this is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation except the Revlon foundation actually applies much better. My only main issue with this is the lack of pump as a lot of the product gets wasted when you pour it out. Again, this is purse friendly at £8.99

YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation | Review Here
This is the most expensive foundation i own at £37 - which i know is a lot of money but this a seriously beautiful foundation. The packaging for this is absolutely gorgeous and looks beautiful displayed on a dressing table. It's a much higher coverage than what i would normally opt for but i actually really like this, it blends out beautifully and gives such a really nice flawless finish to the skin. I tend to save this more for special occasions or when i want a flawless finish rather than using it day to day. It might be very expensive but i personally think it's worth the money as i just adore the finish it gives to my skin.

Essence All-in-One CC Cream
As this is a CC Cream i don't know if this technically counts in the foundation category but I'm going to include it here anyways. It's a lightweight formula so it's not heavy on the skin - it evens out the complexion and it has a light yet buildable coverage. It actually surprised me at how much i liked this and at £4.00 its the cheapest out of the lot.

So these are my current top 5 foundations - it's quite a diverse range! Have you tried any of these foundations? Whats your favourite foundation?

  1. What a lovely lineup. I really want to try the YSL foundation, everything about it sounds so nice. I like the Essence CC Cream too & have been wearing it quite a lot during this warm weather. It gives a nice even coverage & lasts well throughout the day too
