It’s been a few weeks since I wrote my last beauty review here on the blog, so I’m back with another one. And I can’t believe I haven’t already written a review about this makeup product. I was certain that I already had, but I checked, and no…I haven’t! Let’s correct that then! I’ve been using NYX’s HD Studio Photogenic foundation for a couple of months non-stop now and I have to tell you, I absolutely love it. It has a very nice consistency, medium to high coverage, and it’s not absolutely matte, something that goes perfectly well with my skin type which is more on the dry side, especially during the winter months. The shade “vanilla” is a little bit darker than my skin tone, but it blends so well that you can’t really tell. I love the finish it leaves on the skin, and the coverage. It’s very light weight and easy to apply, it doesn’t makes you look cakey, on the contrary, and looks great in photos or videos. I love it so much, that I’m definitely going to purchase it after this tube is over. It’s my go-to foundation for the past couple of months.
I’ve been using the True Match foundation by L’oreal for a few months now, since some subscribers recommended it to me, and I’m really satisfied with it. I have the 1C Rose Ivory shade which is quite close to my skin tone. Most of the times I use my H&M makeup sponge to apply it, and the result looks flawless. It doesn’t have high coverage like the L’Oreal Infallible 24h matte foundation which I’ve written about in the past, but if you need that coverage, you can combine the two, like I do. True match has a more runny consistency, it’s very light, it doesn’t feel cakey on the face and has a very useful pump. I will definitely buy it again in the future, since it works great on me. Have you every tried L’Oreal’s true match foundation?
I’ve been reading rave reviews about this foundation everywhere, so I thought I had to try it. Since we didn’t have Rimmel in Greece back then (we do now though!), I asked Kleoniki to bring me one from UK. It has a runny consistency, but in my opinion it doesn’t get applied easily or smoothly. It has a pleasant scent, but unfortunately the color I chose was too light for me (something I never believed would happen!). So I definitely did not see a high & invisible coverage like it says on the product, and it didn’t make my skin look perfect. On the contrary, I think it looks quite visible when you see me in person. So I mostly use it when I’m filming videos, because I think it looks much better on camera than it does in real life. So it doesn’t get a good rating from me, but that doesn’t mean, it won’t work on you. I’d like to try some other products from Rimmel in the future though. Maybe it will work better on my skin.
I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. At first, I bought it because I’ve heard so many praises about it, and I was running out of foundation and needed one for my trip to Athens. Its price is a little above 10euros, so this fact also contributed in my choice to buy it to give it a try.
I’ve been using this makeup for months now and I think it’s time to review it here on the blog. The first time I used it, was when we got our makeup done by the ck one team at Notos Galleries, and from the first time I could tell it’s amazing. When I got my own, I was super excited to try it out, and not only it didn’t disappoint, but it also reinforced the original opinion I had about it.
