With the cosmetic market constantly bringing new versions of foundations and concealers to our attention, it can be really hard to know what is out there for you!
A good foundation can vary in price from a mass market foundation such as the new Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation retailing at €7.99 to a premium brand such as Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation which retails at €42.99.
These products are tailored to different skincare needs and work affectively for different ages and skin types.
The Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation is a great product, especially for those with an oily skin type as the matte effect really insures that this product is long lasting – I tested it by wearing it to the gym which really showed it durability! The product stayed on well after a lot of sweating and running around which made me think it’s a great product for a night out on the tiles!!
The Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation is a silkier foundation which gives a great shine and lightness to the skin on application. I found it covered the dark circles under my eyes well and my skin still felt soft and moisturized after wearing this foundation for the day.
While a good foundation doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg, good cosmetics are an investment in your skin as well as having a regular skincare regime! I personally prefer the Clarins foundation in this case as my skin tends to be slightly dry and this helped keep my skin conditioned as well as covered but I would recommend the Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse Foundation for oiler skin as its staying power is really great!
