I’m going to do my liquid foundation comparison & swatches a little bit differently – I’ll show you how these look actually applied to my skin. I have three different liquid foundations to showcase today (but two shades of one, which I’m currently mixing together).
First off, here’s my bare skin. AS you can see, I have some redness, and a red spot on my chin from a zit that’s beginning to heal. My chin is the area of my face with the worst skin, so I usually apply foundation full-strength to it, than blend sheerly over the rest of my face.
|Bourjois Healthy Mix|
Bourjois Healthy (I’m wearing 52 Vanilla) mix has a pleasant, fruity scent. It’s a little bit pink for me, and it has a good level of coverage – you can still see the red spot, which is fine by me – I don’t want full coverage foundation, and there’s always concealer. It comes in a pump bottle, which is ideal. I’m not sure how well this lasts, because I haven’t worn it out much – it’s nice, but I just prefer MUFE for some reason.
|Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer|
I really like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. I’m wearing Bisque, in the oil free version. It’s a tiny bit dark for me right now, but it’s perfect during the summer, which is when I want tinted moisturizer anyway. This wears very well for me, and I really like the level of coverage, which I think is more like a very light foundation than a tinted moisturizer. The one downside is that this very much smells like sunscreen to me.
|MUFE HD Foundation|
MUFE HD is my favorite foundation. I’m 117 in the winter and 120 in the summer. After traveling over Christmas, I’m mixing both shades together right now. I really, really love this – I can build it up for more coverage and easily sheer it out for less. It photographs beautifully, but looks natural in person too. It seems to last very well (and I never bother with primer). It matches my skintone really well.
