Do you ever find yourself neglecting certain products, because you have too many of them and you just never get around to using them? I'm like that with foundations. I have about six and several BB creams, so some sit around collecting dust. I've decided that I'm going to try and use each one for a period of several weeks, just so they actually get used. Here are my recent picks...
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
Rimmel Stay Matte
I've used this in a previous FOTD if you want to see how it wears. This foundation is great because its so cheap but still delivers full coverage. The texture is thick and mousse-like, but still blends really easily. Wear time is good, but I find it can rub off pretty easily. As for matte-ness, it seems to maintain oil control well but I don't really have oily skin...so I'm not the best person to ask. I wore this for about two weeks in a row, as I took it on a week long trip away and kept using it for a while after.
I have reviewed this previously. I wore this foundation every day during my two week placement. It's medium coverage, very light on the skin and easy to blend. It also lasts all day without a primer. I can't really fault this foundation on its performance, it gives a slightly dewy finish that lasts all day for a fresh faced look. The only drawback is the price, its about $55AUD, from memory.
Rimmel Match Perfection
I did not like this foundation initially. It's very watery and runny. It also smells like shampoo. But with time, I have found myself liking it. It's great for light coverage to even out skin tone and it also gives a slight glow. It covers some redness, but it won't hide blemishes. My skin is generally pretty good so it's fine to use, but for bad skin days, this wouldn't be enough. Without a primer, the lasting power of this is not great - I'd say about 4-5 hours later, its worn off. I've been wearing this all week and probably will for a little while. Again, this foundation is relatively cheap (I bought it on sale, 50% off for $9!!) so I'm happy with it.
I think this method of rotating foundations is a good way for me to use some of my less-used foundations. I'll probably switch to wearing some of my BB Creams (of which I have 5, 1 unopened though) so stay tuned!
Do you try and rotate products too?
