AKA, the crappy thing that happens when your foundation doesn't match. I was a bit masky yesterday, I wanted to try out one of the 2 foundation samples I ordered. One was way too pink for me but the other was close, just a bit too light. Even though it wasn't a match I still wanted to give it a go to see how it wore.
They were AL Glissade in 3N and 3C. 3C was the one that was too pink.
I used one of my own sponges to apply. I really liked the coverage, I didn't need any under eye concealers and it almost completely covered my crappy spotted skin.
It was almost nice out today so I wore it out to the zoo to see how it would look by the end of the day.
A few hours later it wasn't quite so pretty, I think I may need a better primer. This time I was using Rimmel's foundation primer. It may be just for liquid foundations so that may be why my foundation was looking a bit funky especially around my chin and mouth. I just used the back of my hand to try to smooth it all out again :)
For coverage here's my face with nothin!:
And here it is with my Rimmel. Not much changes, maybe the dark around my eyes is a bit less
And here it is with the Glissade, yup once again ignore the whiteness of it, but check out the coverage!
HAHAHAH The lightness is redonkulous but still, you can see it's pretty covered.
This is ze look I chose. Not nearly as bright as normal but I really liked the combo and the sparkle in the shadows made me feel like a princess :D
Highlight: Stardust cosmetics in Cashmere Mittens
Liner: UD Bourbon
Rimmel lash maxx mascara
MAC Ripe Peach ombre
Lips: Avon lipstick Sparkling Warm Rose
Oh hullo mask face.
I probably should have chosen a pink blush but oh wells!
I'm not sure I will try other foundation samples. They are quite pricey for samples even if you do get a lot ($2). If it takes me 8 times to find my perfect match, I'm out $16 american and stuck with 7 samples that won't work.
Hopefully Meow has something for me and with as good a coverage.
