My Favorite Foundations (Review)

For as long as I can remember, I was never a fan of foundation. I was always one of the lucky ones who never suffered from acne or any skin problems (thank you mom), so for me it was never a question of having to go out without anything on my skin, since I did't have anything to hide or enhance. But, as I grew older and became more and more aware of my makeup routine, my foundation collection grew at the same time.

Even if I didn't have any discolorations or  hyper-pigmentations, I still wanted to have a flawless/glowy skin. I understood that not all foundations are the same, and that although I don't need a high coverage one on a daily basis, something light and glowy is what makes my skin look luminous and healthy.

Before I start listing my favorite foundations at this moment, I would like to mention that I have a Normal - Combination Skin, with a tendency to Oily during the summer times, and a tendency to Dry during the winter months.   

1. GALENIC TEINT LUMIERE 

- One with the lightest coverage, it is more of a primer than it is a foundation

- Gives a healthy bronzed look, has a light tint 

- Can be combined with another foundation for more coverage

- Comes in 2 colors only 

- Harder to find, mostly in Pharmacies 

- Price: around 40 -45 $ 

2. BOURJOIS 123 PERFECT CC CREAM

- Light coverage that can be easily built up to medium 

- Great hydration characteristics, not suitable for Oily skin 

- CC cream, thus makes the skin perfect, hides any dark pigmentation / spots / redness 

- Bad packaging, leaks a little since it very liquid-y , so should be stored upside-down 

- Scarce color selection, only 4 shades 

- Sadly, not suitable for Darker skin tones 

- Easily accessible, found in all drugstores, pharmacies, beauty shops ... 

- Price: 15$
