10 November 2014


As a stay-at-home mum, my days are often spent in casual clothes, and consequently my approach to makeup is often the same, light and quick and hence I often find myself reaching for a tinted moisturiser or a BB/CC cream. However, when I do go out, I always prefer a foundation with more coverage, so continuing my series of three products of similar kind, today I am looking at long-wearing foundations offering a medium to full coverage; 


L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Stayfresh Foundation*

This foundation is easy to build up to a full coverage by applying several thin layers, and it easily covers dark spots, blemishes and acne scars, and because it covers so well, I often feel I don’t really need to use a concealer, except for under the eye area to cover bags.

It has a nice natural finish that doesn’t look heavy on the skin. The foundation has an extremely long wear, easily staying put on my combination skin for 10+ hours, and that’s without the use of a primer first, but when setting it with a powder – but then there is no mid-afternoon shine, which I’ve otherwise become accustomed to. I am not sure if it actually stays put for the 24 hours as claimed, as regardless of how tired I am, I never fail to remove my makeup before bed, however, I am still very impressed with a 10 hour wear! But of course that is during early spring, so I am yet to see how it performs during the hotter and more humid months.

It is easy to apply and blend, but using fingers and a foundation brush, and comes in an easy to use pump bottle, and I love that it comes with SPF18 too.

RRP: $31.95 – Available from Priceline, department stores and select pharmacies

Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation*

This foundation combines primer, concealer and foundation in one, and who doesn’t love a true multi-tasker. It has a so called flexi-hold technology that creates a strong film that sits on the skin, and it easily covers even pigmentation, blemishes and scarring, making my skin look nice and even, while being almost invisible on the skin, and if you have a darker mark, you can easily build up coverage too. It even works perfectly under the eyes to cover bags and dark circles, yet without settling into those fine lines. the foundation is oil free, so it is perfect for my combination skin, and it gives my skin such a lovely matte finish with a formula that absorbs excess oil keeping it shine free all day. It is claimed it lasts up to 12 hours, but I have to admit to rarely wearing my makeup for that many hours, but it does easily last 8-10 hours, and almost looking still looking freshly applied when I take it off at night.

RRP: $31.95 - Available from Priceline, department stores and select pharmacies

Innoxa Renew Age Erase Serum Foundation*

This foundation is not just a foundation and I love that it also includes a serum of anti-ageing ingredients to help both instantly and in the long term, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while keeping my skin soft and moisturised. This talc and paraben free foundation also contains silicone that acts as a primer making it long lasting, easily lasting well into the afternoon without the need for a touch-up. Just a small pump is all that is required to evenly cover any blemishes, redness and pigmentation, yet coverage can easily be built up by adding another thin coat if needed. I love how it leaves my skin with a nice even and velvety matte finish with a nice healthy glow. 

RRP: $26.95 – Available from Priceline, Department stores and select pharmacies

    1. No, unfortunately it doesn't, but on the days I don't plan to be outside, I really don't mind!
