30 Day Challenge - Day 04 : My favorite foundation(s)

Hello Lovelies!

I am on my fourth challenge! YAY! Well, I just wanna share about these 2 favorite stuff! I love MAC foundations : Studio Fix Fluid and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. These two items have been great so far. My skin is sensitive, acne prone and will react if I use a wrong product. So far, these two have not yet caused any zits (knock on wood!) and provide a nice coverage that I want. I had been on acutane due to skin problem (stress can really kill my skin!) and I am staying away from using a thick foundation for more than 8 hours. I normally wash my face everytime I get home from work, just so my face is clean and those pores can breath again. I don't go to bed with my makeup on. To be honest, I did before in the past just because I was darn lazy and it contributed to skin problems. So I learned my lesson.

Well, Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 does provide a medium to full coverage with a minimum sun protection. One thing though, if I wear this foundation and take a picture, I will look like a ghost! Of course it happens because of the SPF ingredients, which is a minus in my book since if I want a sun protection, I can just wear an SPF lotion underneath my foundation or even a primer with an SPF! So, if there's an event, or a party, I have to reach for my other foundation that has no SPF in it. Bummer. Because the foundation coverage is really nice.

Mineralized Skinfinish Natural is mainly for touch-up, or as a setting powder. It also is my go-to foundation if I feel lazy to wear anything. :)

So there, my 2 must have foundations!

You and your MAC, Rinz! I prefer powder over cream though. The Clinique one is pretty good for something so affordable.

i've also got sensitive, acne prone skin and mac studio fix fluid broke it out like crazy! I had cysts on my face for months :( I love Mac studio fix powder foundation in c4 - it matches my skin perfectly :) xxx

I don't usually wear foundation but I've always wanted to try the MAC one for the odd time that I do.

I really want MAC foundations to work but they all make me break out. Glad they both work well for you!

Good post!

For some reason, MAC foundation-y products break me out. Not their blushes though (powders or cream). Hmmm!

Thanks for sharing! I always read so many rave reviews on MAC foundations, but I've never actually tried them before. I'm leaning more towards a liquid formula if I do give it a try though, because my skin tends to get very dry from powder foundations :)

Rinz said...

toni - yeah lol because I am like scared to try other foundation that always doesnt match my skintone! But i will soon try Nars!

Roshas - Does Studio Fix Powder cause any zits on your skin? I have it but I am not a big fan of it =/

Courtney Erin: i got some zits to cover!! LOL :) u dont need one because your skin is flawless!

Rinz said...

Rakshanda - i also have colorstay but that thing can be evil to me sometimes ha ha ha - it stucks on my skin forever and it's very hard to remove. I usually wear it when i go clubbing. :) it STAYS on!

Indianmakeupways: yup agree it does give flawless finish with some sheen. :)

Kristie : What do you use? I am open to new brands. I can get tired of the same one.

Rinz said...

Barbie : what do you use?

roshas said...

@Rinz - it doesn't - which is very surprising as I have extremely sensitive skin. How comes u dont like it? x

Kirsty said...

I am loving the Studio fix foundation as well, as my face gets really oily and I always hated that! And yes I also love mineralize natural! im on my way to purchase the third one! lol! ;) xx

Elise said...

I've never been able to get studio fix fluid to work for me :( It just feels way to thick on my dry skin. You're right though...great coverage!
