Current Foundations on Rotation

If you read my July Goals, I mentioned that I wanted to start using some of my makeup products that found their way to the back of my makeup drawer and may have been forgotten. Part of that list are foundations. I didn't realize how many foundations I owned until I made the commitment to resurface some older products. I won't dare to bring out some of the thicker foundations until the season passes, so here are the lighter formulas that I have been using lately.

EX1 Invisiwear: This isn't actually part of the switch up, but it has been my go-to foundation for the longest time so I have to mention it. The Invisiwear is hands down my favourite foundation of all time. It's great for yellow/olive undertones, has great coverage, and isn't too expensive. The formula isn't to thick but isn't runny as well. Another thing that I love about it is the packaging. With every pump, there's something inside the pushes the product up so that there isn't any wasted foundation (did that make sense?). In other words, it's similar to the packaging of the Maybelline Age Rewind.

L'oreal True Match: I'm pretty sure this foundation used to be everyone's favourite at one point in time, including me. This was actually my everyday foundation before I found the Invisiwear. The foundation is buildable so you can go from light-medium coverage to medium-full without looking cakey. One thing I don't like about this is that there isn't a pump. Without a pump, it's hard to control how much product comes out and I end up pouring out more foundation than I need.

Revlon Colorstay Whipped: When I first picked this up, it was during the Summer time. With a thicker consistency, this foundation surprisingly holds up well in the heat. My favourite way to apply it is with a beautyblender to thin it out a bit. It has great coverage. I feel like the shade that I have is more for people with pink undertones though. Another con is the packaging. It's extremely heavy and bulky, so it's not suitable for travelling. 

Which foundations have you been getting the most use out of lately?
