I love my shiseido foundation but wonder if there is anything better? What do you ladies swear by? Thanks! Post a pic please.
love this stuff...and you dont need much and its super light...
Funny you should be posting this because I have been on the hunt for a good foundation and wondering if the top brands like MAC and Makeup Forever are worth the bucks!
In the past I have used Revlon Photoready Primer and Foundation. I think these are really good products for the price...around $10-12 each.
However, I was very curious about products like Smashbox and Urban Decay so off to Ulta I went. I had a coupon for Naked foundation from Urban Decay but they were out of my color. When I asked the sales clerk if they had it in my color she advised that they didn't and suggested I try China Doll by Napolean. There was less product and it was more expensive but I figured what the heck.
This stuff was $50~I NEVER pay this much for make-up but again I am willing to pay for good quality! While I'm sure for some people this is a great product....I was hugely disappointed! Honestly, I see NO DIFFERENCE whatsoever in this and Revlon photoready. If I am going to pay that much for make-up I should be impressed or at least notice a difference.
I have tried a little more and a little less and I'm still not impressed. The sales lady gave me a sample of the primer and I have even used both of them together and I'm just not havin' it!
That is of course just my opinion. I am looking forward to purchasing the Naked foundation when I have used up the china doll stuff. I think I will really like it. I used my daughters one day and although it was too light for my complexion, I love the coverage it gave me.
DAaaaannng I am sorry this was so long.
Not sure why my Revlon Photos didn't come out but here they are....hopefully!
Sorry that is so weird~they are not coming through.
Have you tried returning the China doll to Ulta? I don't know their policies-but if you spend $50, you better love it! They might understand because you didn't even go there for that anyways.
@pinktulip-I don't really use foundation, but I've been using and loving my Mary Kay tinted moisturizer (beige 1 for me) It makes my skin look really good!!!
No, I have never tried returning make-up. I didn't think you could!! I thought once you bought it you owned it. Do I just tell them that I don't like it and I'm not pleased with the coverage?
i love the Mac foundation! Mary kay works well with my skin too!
Nichole -I think it depends on the store, but I'm pretty sure if it's within a certain time period, you can get a refund or at least a store credit. Hopefully you have the receipt still!
I haven't tried too many non-drug store brand foundations. Right now I'm using Almay, Truley Lasting Color.
On a side note, I loove Mary kay. When I feel like splurging a bit I go in that direction!
I need a new foundation, it's always hard for me to find one that wont make my face break out... like super bad! Lol
Yes, Elise, I have the receipt still and I am going to try and return it.
Ladies, my cousin who is a makeup person (she owns way too much-lol) said that you can actually ask for free samples from stores like Sephora and try it and see if it is worth it! This sounds like a great idea! I hope this helps!
