Makeup Monday: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation

As you may or may not know, I 1. do not wear tons of makeup & 2. buy makeup that is reasonable priced. Today's Makeup Monday post is all about a drugstore foundation. This Rimmel London foundation is perfect for more fair skin tones, and it keeps your skin looking natural. 

I picked up this foundation in the shade 010 Light Porcelain. It's a perfect match to my skin which is astonishing because I can never find a foundation that is light enough for me. It is also under $10 and can be found at your local drugstore, Walmart or Target. It glides onto your skin and doesn't feel heavy either. It keeps your skin looking like skin. It also doesn't melt off which is great for an event or a hot day. I could keep rambling on about how awesome this foundation is, but I won't. All I'll say is if you're looking for a new full coverage foundation that doesn't feel like full coverage on your skin, then this is for you! Give it a try and let me know if you like it or have another foundation preference in the comments below!

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream

I do not like foundation. At all. I often find it to be heavy, and not really appeasing on my face; I'll only wear it for those days when I really need to look good. That's why when I want some coverage, I want something light, fresh, and it doesn't hurt if it has an SPF (I'm all about the SPF). The Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream fits the bill like no other.cliniquecc I wear the shade "Very Light" because I'm very fair, and would like to think I have porcelain skin. In the summer I usually wear the shade "Light" since I'll have a bit of a "tan" (not really). Its an all season, all purpose kind of base makeup.

I love this CC Cream because it's light, gives your skin a dewy finish without being greasy, and overall does cover what you need covering. It also does a great job of keeping your skin moisturized. Not to mention it boasts a SPF 30. The CC Cream creates a perfect light base for the rest of your makeup. Also, it goes on so nicely with just your fingers. No brushes required. It is so quick and easy to use, and you don't need to spend time on blending and making sure you look "natural".

Now it is on the more pricier side of the spectrum retailing at $39.99, but it does last ages. I had one for about a year and a half, and I would use it quite often. Clinique is a great brand that caters to most skin types as it also works for sensitive skin like my own. Next time you're looking for a lighter foundation alterantive, especially with Spring here, try this one out. Let me know what you think in the comments below of this CC Cream or any CC Cream you've tried.
