My Foundations // Review

*This is NOT a sponsored post*

I use not one, but five (5) different foundations, not all at the same time, but each for different occasions and purposes. Let me clarify from the start that I bought them all by myself and none of them was sent to me via PR. Below, apart from my personal opinion, you will also find which shades I own as well as links to read the product descriptions/ingredients and also, if you like, to purchase them.

DIOR * Backstage (1.5N)
This is the affordable version of a Dior foundation. Easy and quick application just with your hands, no tools needed, but you can use a beauty sponge or a brush if you like. Flawless, satin looking skin with a buildable formula. 40 available shades. I wear it when I am running late, but I want my skin to look healthy and fresh. I also apply under my eyes because it is very hydrating. Shake well before use.

FENTY BEAUTY * Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (150)
One of the best foundations for photoshootings, especially under extreme conditions (heat, humidity etc), perfect for summer brides! Lasts all day long, doesn't feel heavy on your skin, doesn't crease easily, looks satiny on photos, doesn't flashback. Check it out here and here. I apply it with a beauty sponge, however, the FENTY BEAUTY foundation brush did not work well on my skin. 50 available shades. I wear it for my photoshootings. Shake well before use.

TOO FACED * Born This Way (Snow)
Also one of my favorites for photoshootings, although much heavier than the Fenty one and not as tolerant to the heat and humidity. I just love the whiteness and glow of my skin whenever I am wearing it, which translates perfectly on photos. Check it out here and here. 35 available shades. I wear it only for photoshootings, because it doesn't look as good in person, at least not for my skin, and I think you should bare that in mind.

L'OREAL PARIS * Infallible 24h Fresh Wear (130 True Beige)
Favorite every day foundation for events and gatherings and all things lovely. Flawless skin from close up and a highly tolerant formula under heat and humidity, especially when applied over a mattifying primer with a dump beauty sponge. Check it out here and here. I love it, I am definitely buying it again, until I am sick of it. 11 or 12 shades available in Greece, not really sure, it's confusing. Shake well before use.

L'OREAL PARIS * Infallible Longwear Shaping Stick (120 Rose Vanilla)
Last time I used a stick foundation I was a Uni student in my early 20s. Now, in my early 40s, I decided to give it another try. It's easy to apply with a beauty sponge or gently with your fingertips. It is long-lasting and gives a satiny matte finish to your skin. I wear it when I am running errands. I wouldn't buy it again because after couple of hours it accentuates my pores. 12 available shades, I think...
