currently testing

foundation, foundation, foundation!!

i don't wear foundation every day (i've actually been wearing BB cream w/ SPF + powder OR sunscreen + full coverage powder) but now i'm on a quest to find the best-ever liquid/creme foundation. nothing beats the baby soft look that a good foundation (+ good technique) can offer. what i'm looking for is medium-to-full coverage THAT LASTS.

currently testing:
- MAC full coverage
- MAC face & body
- MAC studio sculpt
- MAC studio tech (creme)
- Clinique repairwear
- La Mer the fluid
- Chanel mat lumiere long lasting luminous matte fluid

just ordered (will be testing!):
- Illuminairé fantastic finish
- Illuminairé extra coverage
- Illuminairé ultimate all-day

if anyone has an HG foundation you'd like to share, please do! remember, my blog is a place where i can share my knowledge as well as receive!

beauty junkies uinte! ^__^

have you tried either of them? if so, what do you think? i may try Make Up For Ever but it only got a 3.6 out of 5 on makeupalley (but then again, so did MAC's studio tech.. and i'm kind of liking it better than the rest). wow, cle de peau is so expensive! $115 per bottle?! serious? =X

I'd say MUFE HD foundation - try to get a sample from Sephora if you can. I think MUFE can also send you a bigger sample if you contact them directly. I use it now & then when I want a really nice base; it's a little more moisturizing than I like in the summer, but does well with a good setting powder & blotting sheets.

How's the search going? I'm looking for something too so I can't wait to see what you think of the MAC ones you're currently testing! I'm thinking of giving Studio Sculpt a try if I can find a good color match.
