I’ve been experimenting with different foundations. I’m an oily girl so I tend to stick with what I know works. Common brands such as black opal and ruby kisses have always been my staple products but I also loved the consistency of most covergirl foundations as well. Here is a quick review of each product (minus Covergirl since I can’t remember the exact one I used).
Ruby Kisses semi Matt liquid foundation- This foundation has good coverage and is buildable. The semi-mate finish creates a healthy “dewy” look that’s perfect for spring and summer. However, if you have oily skin, a primer and setting powder is a must. This product also has medication to treat acne. For 5.99, this product is a good value.
Black Opal Cream stick foundation- Me and this stick go WAY back. I believe it’s the first foundation I ever used. It’s creamy and easy to blend. It has never caused me to break out but it does transfer throughout the day if you rub on something, which is highly annoying. This product doesn’t settle in pores and is available in over 6 shades. The colors are also tailored to fit brown girls and I appreciate that. You can select a darker color for contouring purposes too. I set this look with ruby kisses setting powder. The packaging is compact and there is a lot of product. The price varies by location but it’s usually 7.99 or less.
