Spring Faceoff: Best/Worst Foundation for Your Face

Happy Spring, everyone! Where did winter go? Oh well, on to Easter & Passover.

I had LASIK eye surgery in January (more about that in an upcoming post, I promise). While there were many (rather annoying but necessary) restrictions put in place for the first week or so (e.g., no pools, hot tubs (FOR A MONTH!), no makeup (FOR A WEEK!), I considered it a minor nuisance compared to glasses (which my husband was literally SICK of hearing me complain about since we met).

When I did get back to finally being able to apply my face again for a night on the town, I opened my makeup bag to use the last of my Urban Decay Foundation and (gasp) horrors almighty, the dang thing had spilled ALL OVER MY MAKEUP BAG!! And I hadn’t even traveled anywhere! While I LOVE Urban Decay Eye Palettes and eye shadows in general, this foundation really disappointed! It was thin, I had to use a ton to get anywhere near full coverage, and just never did it for me. (Photo Credit: Ulta.com)

57 tissues, 2 towelettes and 3 makeup wipes later, I gave up and finally tossed the remainder of the foundation in the trash. And thus began my love affair with Christian Dior Airflash Foundation. Yes, it’s expensive (60 bucks), only available at Sephora; and no, I can’t use a coupon a la Ulta.

I spray a little on my face, and boy, does it go a long way! It’s lightweight, but gives me all-nighter, I’m gonna go to Vegas and party til 5 AM, wearability. My skin can breathe! And best of all, it’s a clean container. No mess in my makeup bag means less fears of explosions each time I get ready for a night on the town. (Photo credit: Sephora)
