My Pick:

Foundation 5

May 1, 2017


My Top Rated foundations to date.  

Always on the search (The Hunt!!) for THE perfect base for my face, I tirelessly try different formulas.  My quest has lead me to a list of foundations that make the TOP FIVE.  Naturally this list is ever changing, but as of now, these are the foundations that made the cut:


1.  Hourglass Vanish Stick- (Ivory)

as mentioned on my main page this foundation is small and mighty.  With it's multipurpose functionality and diminutive stature it ranks number one on my top 5 list.  I find this foundation to have a satin matte finish that doesn't look dry or flat but rather airbrushed and very my skin but waaaay better.  I get a solid 6 hours of wear, but never worry about that because it is always in my purse for touch-ups. A home run Hourglass!


2. NARS Sheer glow (Fiji)

An old favorite...NARS sheer glow is a satin finish sheer foundation that is buildable to a solid medium coverage.  As the name states, it is sheer at first application.  It simply perfects your canvas in the most beautiful way.  I prefer to apply this with my fingers then bounce a damp beauty blender over it to give my face a perfected veil of color. Definitely a current favorite!


3. L'Oreal Lumi Cushion (w-3)

A drugstore treasure!  This foundation imparts the most creamy natural finish.  Suited best for normal skin types this foundation wears for a shorter time than some of my others but is so beautiful and easy to carry for touch ups.  I get a medium coverage with this foundation and when I set it with my Surratt Powder I may get an extra hour or two.  If I can avoid setting it I will, it's finish is so sublime that I hate to cover/change it with powder.  I love using this with a damp (well squeezed) beauty blender but the intended sponge is also perfectly doable.  


4. Zelens Youth Glow in both Cream and Beige (depending on season) 

This is a Niche find that I absolutely adore.  Somehow Zelens imparts a glow without looking greasy or overtly shiny...all with a decent 4 hour staying power.  Perfect for an evening out!  I love this with the damp beauty blender.  Freckles may show through but they now show through the most beautiful youthful skin.  A trick that I have learned is to immediately go over the Youth Glow with Revlon Colorstay Whipped for a substantial increase in wear time.  A heavenly combo of high end and high street (drugstore).


5. Kanebo Sensai Cellular Performance (natural beige)

Although this is hard to find in the states I still procure this gem of a foundation about once a year.  With a bouncy, satin finish it is the perfect "my skin but better" foundation.  The coverage is a solid medium and when applied with a beauty blender it looks nearly indetectable. Somehow it transforms your skin in to a "five years ago" version of itself...Always a good thing!
