Rouge Bunny Rouge SKIN SOUL DROPS Foundation Essence Review and Face Swatches

So, after I’ve posted a preview of  Rouge Bunny Rouge SKIN SOUL DROPS Foundation Essence, it is time for a proper review.

So here are my thoughts about it:

The price is almost €60 (€59) which seems really expensive for 15ml but, as the name suggests, it is an essence which means that it is a very concentrated liquid. You need a tiny drop for your face, and it will last you for ages.

The brand describes the finish as demi-matte, and I agree. It gives that flawless coverage and evens out the skin tone perfectly. Just make sure you add some dimension back with a blush or whichever product you prefer.

Rouge Bunny Rouge SKIN SOUL DROPS Foundation Essence Review and Swatches 1Skin Soul Drop is not really an on-the go foundation. The application takes some time, and you can’t just “slap it on”. I like applying it with two brushes. A classic flat synthetic foundation brush (something like this one) to spread it out evenly and a kabuki brush (like Sigma) to blend it into the skin.

I personally think that

Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation Review and Swatches. Rave

As you already know, there are tonnes of new foundations coming out our way for AW season, so I thought I’d share about my personal new love, base-wise. Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation.

I’ve got a sample with a Sephora purchase several months ago, and totally forgot about it, until recently when I threw in some samples to try while I was visiting my family.

Before I start, I have to mention that now I have a tan (plus fake tan on top to make my skin even more “sun kissed”),  and I really love experimenting with my makeup, as I can now wear different shades and colours, which usually don’t suit my skin tone.

The shade that I have is the fifth (out of ten) in the line which is Meet Me Latte ( described as “neutral beige for medium skin tones”) which is still a bit dark for me but I can make it work.

It is like a hydrating tinted moisturizer.  I also like that it lasts all day on me, doesn’t melt or look greasy, and I have tested it in very hot climate. But please keep in mind that I have very dry skin.

My second favourite thing is the fact that you get some serious glow! It is not shiny or glittery, but just a

Rouge Bunny Rouge Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary Review and Swatches of All Shades

I really wanted to try the newest Rouge Bunny Rouge Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary on a more mature skin, as well as on myself  but, unfortunately,  did not get a chance to do so yet.

But since I have promised a review to several people quite a long time ago, I thought I’d share anyway…

I’d say that this foundation gives a medium coverage and evens out the skin tone pretty well, without feeling heavy. I have tried several  application methods and liked really working it into the skin with Sigma’s brushes the best. That way it really blends in and gives a natural looking effect, so that people don’t really see that you are wearing a foundation.

As for the finish, it is not dewy but not matte. It doesn’t make my skin glow, like some light reflective foundations, but at the same time doesn’t make the skin look flat and dull. It is probably the effect that most women desire for their every day look.

It is promised to work for all skin types and it does work for my very dry skin tone but I have to prep the skin properly. However, if you have normal skin – it should work really well for you! I’d assume the same for the girls with oily skin.

Skin Sanctuary (love this name a lot) should  diminish the natural signs of aging that appear with mature skin and help to prevent and protect younger complexions.

Key Ingredients:

  •  Detoxyl, a natural complex derived from Shea Butter,  protects, detoxifies and calms, offering skin sanctuary from ravaging free radicals and urban pollutants.
  •  Ceramide III & IV – works to erase fine lines, deeply moisturises and monitors the skin’s dehydration process, rejuvenates the skin.
  • Extracts of Karitè Butter Seed  – nourishes and softens.

This time there are four shades available with one being suitable for deeper skin tone:

  • BARLEY CREAM, Medium honeyed beige
  • LINEN CREAM, Pale milky beige
  • QUINOA CREAM, Pale pinkish beige
  • WHEAT CREAM, Medium tawny beige

The price is €48.50 for 30 ml/ 1.01 fl oz

Although my personal love is Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water, this is a great foundation and will suit a lot of women.


Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Make-Up in Ivory Review and Swatches

I have been wearing Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Make-Up by Dior (£31), which is a part of their Nude range, for several weeks now so I am ready to give you my opinion.

I love the classic design, it is simple but luxurious at the same time. This foundation comes with a pump which is very handy as you don’t waste any product.

I have the lightest shade which is called Ivory. It is a little bit light for me right now but will be perfect soon.

Skin-Glowing Make-Up does give a glowing but not dewy or matte finish which should work both for dry or oily skin. It looks very natural on the skin and if you blend it properly it is very hard to tell that you are wearing anything, Nude is a perfect name for such product actually.

I was amazed that this foundation smooths out the skin (I think that pores are less visible, too) and evens out the skin tone nicely. I find that it gives a medium coverage but can be built up without looking like you have tones of product on.  Plus it feels light on the skin. I personally don’t need a concealer with this foundation.

It has a nice smell and

Second Skin Foundation by Max Factor. Review and Swatches

Second Skin Foundation from Max Factor (£13.99 at Boots)

Max Factor Second Skin Foundation

What is written about this foundation:

It’s easy to see why Max Factor has named its new foundation Second Skin – it really does blend seamlessly, leaving the most flawless finish, with no tell-tale lines.

While many other foundations aim for uniform all-over coverage, disguising every hint of natural colour, this innovative new formula doesn’t attempt to hide tone, working in harmony with your complexion instead.

This is foundation for those that want their skin to look its natural best – rather than obviously made-up.

My opinion:

This foundation was sent to me by Max Factor PR and I’ve been using it for quite a long time already so what is my verdict?
