2015 was definitely the year of foundations (and contour palettes - but don't get me started on that). Every brand was cranking out a new foundation every couple of months. I really hopped on the bandwagon and tried tons! Some didn't make the cut and some became my all time favorites!
These 4 foundations were the most impressive formula that launched this year (in my opinion.) One of them is more of an honorable mention but I just couldn't go without talking about it!
1. Make Up For Ever ULTRA HD Liquid & Invisible Cover Stick - I was SO blown away by MUFE's new ULTRAHD formula. It totally blows the old formula out of the water (which I didn't enjoy by the way) The liquid is my every day go-to for medium coverage. The stick is my go -to for fuller coverage looks with a natural finish. Everything about this formula is great. It is literally invisible on the skin and doesn't enhance imperfections.
2. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation - This was a big hit when it first launched! I was immediately impressed when I tried it. It's a full coverage foundation with a natural finish. The formula works to blur your pores which is AWESOME. This is definitely going to be for all of the full coverage gals out there! The good thing is that it's full coverage but not cakey! Great foundation
for full coverage and special occasions.
3. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation - I have one reason for choosing this foundation as a favorite - the pigment level! This foundation offers amazing pigmentation with such little product. All you need is 3-4 drops for full coverage or 1-2 for light coverage. The formula is demi-matte so if you're dry, you barely need to set it. It lasts all day on the skin and photographs great!
4. MAC Studio Water Weight Foundation (honorable mention) - I didn't include this foundation in my video but I thought it deserved a mention on the blog for those of you who needed some other options. MAC Studio Water Weight is an ultra-fluid-like foundation with light to medium coverage and a dewy finish. It's wonderful for dry skin! The coverage is going to be for those who want anything from light to medium. Definitely an interesting foundation that's great for every day wear.
What were some of your favorite foundations that released this year? I'd love to know!
