Foundation Make-Up

Hi ladies

I have just about run out of my favourite foundation which is Clinique and I was going to buy some tonight but I'm not wanting to spend over £25 on it. I've had mine a long time as I don't wear foundation very often so it last me a long time.

I love it because it really does make your skin look flawless but I was wondering if anyone here can recommend a good foundation that isn't so expensive?

Re: Foundation Make-Up

Hi Queenie,

I have used Lancome Renergie Lift foundation for about ten years now. It is pricy, about $48, but as you say, it lasts me about six months, goes on evenly, leaves my face soft, and has SPF 20. I never have a breakout problem with this product.

At times I have tried Loreal Lift, about $15, to save money. It is creamy, does cover well, but tends to lay on the skin instead of blending well, and at times initiates a blemish or two.

The Lancome products truly treat my complexion kindly, and I still get compliments occasionally. Well worth the splurge IMO. I'll cut corners on other lotions and creams.

Re: Foundation Make-Up

The only time I wear make up now, is if I am going somewhere special, then I transform myself.

I don't wear it for my yoga classes, nor does anybody else. Neither do I bother for dog walking or shopping.
This way I don't get a shock in the mirror at the end of the day when I clean it all off again.

Trouble is, with not getting made up very often, I have to then bear in mind how long I have had the stuff for, as all make up has a shelf life once opened. I certainly wouldn't use old out of date stuff on my eyes for a start.

Each to their own ey.

Re: Foundation Make-Up

I used LancŰme years and years ago but l found it very drying to my face and expensive.
At about the same time, l started to use Leichner Kamera Klear tinted foundation. It comes in a pot!
It was used as stage make up in those days. l found it hard to find and it was really expensive.

These days, l can only find it at an indoor market in my area or online and it only costs about £3! Itís ever so good and you only need a tiny bit!

I buy, A Blend Of Coffee and A Blend Of Caramel.
I put Astral or Olay 7 Effects moisturiser underneath, let it absorb a bit, then l put a tiny bit of the coffee on and a tiny bit of caramel on the top.
Youíd think it would be like a mask but it isnít.

PS. I have just read, Drag Queens use it a lot! Ha!

Re: Foundation Make-Up

I only ever use tinted moisturiser as foundation has always been too heavy for my skin. The one I like at the moment is garnier BB. I think it's the dark one I use. My skin is so pale I like something to give me a healthy glow. But because it's just a tinted moisturiser you only need a tiny bit and it doesn't look heavy. I used to always use the ivory or pale ivory shades of foundation when young. Then I realised that it was a bit of a con and just used the most translucent powder (cornsilk was a favourite for years). But the tinted moisturiser gives a boost without the heavy paint feeling. I like bourjois powder and blusher, maybeleine lippy. No mascara, just some defining shadow. When I look at young women these days they don't look as though they have used any make up at all. Makes you wonder whether they have spent a fortune or nothing!

Re: Foundation Make-Up

I was devastated to discover Leichner foundation that l use, has been discontinued. I have used it since I was 19!
I wouldnít have found that out, only for this thread. I had looked online about Leichner last night and there was the news it has been discontinued.
Today, l went to the market where l usually buy it and she only had one shade available. It was almost double in price but l paid it as l was desperate!

I canít use Garnier or Clarins as l was allergic to them. Thatís why l stuck with Leichner that suited me.
