All things beauty related

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect foundation, as i'm really pale and hate the idea of being darker than I am.  I found it hard to see online comparisons before buying as some brands you can't buy instore.
Estee Lauder double wear in 1C1 Shell
Estee Lauder Double Wear has been my all time fav for since I first started using it in college about 2/3 years ago and love it.  Although the colour is perfect for it does last and feels amazing.
Avon Ideal Flawless in Light Pink
I brought this foundation as I've read some really good reviews online and when recieving my Avon book saw it was only £7 and thought I'd give it ago. I ordered the palest in the range as I always do as I believe its better to be paler and add colour. When it arrived I tried it straight away and wasn't too happy with the colour ( see colour swatch below). Also it really didn't last as I'm used to Double wear it really didn't stand up to it which I know its only a 'drug store foundation'. Also my skin felt really greasy and felt like I needed to wash it off more or less straight away. I really wouldn't recommend it for combination/oily skin maybe people with dry skin would be better suited.

Double Wear Maximum Cover in 11 Very Light

When I finished the sample of this foundation I brought it the next day as the love the coverage when its blended well otherwise it looks cakey and thick. Yet again the colour is abit dark than my colouring but blending it well I find I feel comfortable with. I use this foundation when I break out as you really dont need and concealer, as it kinda of a all in one.

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in No.02
I've been after this foundation for ages but theres no store by me and was worried which shade to buy as I didn't want to waste money. When Debenhams finally had it in stock in shade 2 I brought it. I've only used it twice but so far I'm loving it and its a perfect shade for me, it looks like I haven't got any on. Its buildable coverage as isn't super heavy like Double Wear.
