My Foundation Collection

Hello! So today I am going to give you a little peek into my foundation collection, I do have quite a few, and there's a reason for this!! I only really got into wearing foundations about a year ago, before then I didn't wear them! But then I realised that my skin could only look so good, and to get the gorgeous glowing skin that I wanted, I had to find the right foundation! So basically I went hunting for loads of different foundations to try out so that I could find the perfect one, and here they all are!!






 garnier miracle skin perfector bb cream in 02 light, l'oreal lumi magique in c1 rose pearl, rimmel stay matte foundation in 100 ivory, rimmel wake me up foundation in 100 ivory, maxfactor second skin foundation in 040 creamy ivory, revlon colourstay in normal/drry skin 110 ivory, revlon photoready foundation in 002 vanilla, bourjois healthy mix foundation in 51 vanille clair, bourjois bio detox foundation in 51 vanille clair, bourjois healthy mix serum in 51 vanille clair, bourjois 10 hour sleep effect foundation in 71 abricote clair, bobbi brown natural finish long lasting foundation in sand 2, une skin-glow foundation in G02, stila illuminating liquid foundation in 10 watts.

Shamefully, most of these haven't ever been used! I know, I'm terrible!! I like to give things a really good try before I make my mind up on them, and use them in different ways so I know how they work best etc, and I just carried on using the same few every day and never got around to using the others! So with that, I would like to bring a new series to Porcelain Eleanor: The Foundation Files! To motivate me into using all of these (because it really is a crime that they're all sitting unused) I'm going to be testing them all out for the series to review them, and let you know what I think and which one I like best! That way I'll be using up my stash so that my money isn't being wasted, and I can hopefully help you guys out with the reviews as well! I actually find that reviewing things for Porcelain Eleanor really makes me think carefully about the product and what it's doing for me, whether I can see the effects etc, and it actually helps me to decide whether or not I think it's any good, because I have to pay attention to it for the review!

Do you have lots of foundations? Which are your favourites? (I like excuses to buy more makeup!!) Do let me know in the comments which ones you'd like me to review and I'll try to make those a priority!

    1. Ahh I like the way you're justifying that! Think I might have to put a similar system in place when I get testing them all!

    1. I wish I could restrain myself like that! I'm always itching to get my hands on new things that I see, and I can never stop thinking about them! Haha! But I'm definitely hoping that this series will help me to downsize my collection by using them up and getting rid of the ones that are no good!

    1. I really want to try some of those! The silk cream foundation has me particularly interested but I don't think I can justify spending so much on one when I have all of these to use up first haha! Maybe if none of these work for me...

    1. Ooh thanks very much! And I do the same with reviews of matte foundations, I'm not all that keen on them, but when I read a review on a good one I pass it on to people who I know will like it :)
