The Foundation Guide #2 | Inside my Stash (with Comparisons & Swatches)


It’s time for the second instalment to my Foundation Guide! If you missed the first part, where I talked about finding the perfect base for you, catch up here. This time we’re going to be going through my stash and I’ll be talking disappointments, shade matches, favourites and comparing similar formulas. I really hope this is helpful and answers some of the questions I get.

Let’s start off with a quick (ha!) breakdown of my stash in order of coverage.

Light CC and BB Creams and Tinted Moisturisers


Coverage: Very Light
Finish: Natural - Dewy
Staying Power: Not great
Colour Match: Shade 3, which is ok
This really isn’t one I reach for much as I do appreciate a little more coverage and something more long-lasting and less dewy.

Sleek CC Cream | £8.99
Coverage: Light
Finish: Natural-Dewy
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: Light - a pretty decent match for me but slightly neutral-toned
This was my everyday base a year or so ago and I still do think it’s a pretty good option if you’re on a budget. Although it’s dewy by my standards, I do find it quite long-lasting and although it’s light coverage it definitely colour corrects and evens out my skintone.

Coverage: Light
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: Bronze - a bit too cool and a tad dark on my skintone.
This is a really nice formula and I do like it for an everyday base but the shade selection is pretty rubbish and even mixing different colours couldn’t get me a decent match.

Coverage: Light
Finish: Matte
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: 03 - this is far too dark for me and the next shade down is too light and they don’t seem to mix together to anything more helpful and this is why I don’t reach for this. However it is nice to see a proper matte BB cream as opposed to something that’s no different to a tinted moisturiser.

Coverage: Light
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Very Good
Colour Match: St. Moritz - Virtually Perfect
This is by far my favourite tinted moisturiser as it has a really natural finish without being too shiny for my combination skin. Although it’s light coverage, it really makes your skin look flawless. Your skin but better in a bottle, if you will.

Coverage: Light-Medium
Finish: Matte
Staying Power: Amazing
Colour Match: G Medium-Deep - Virtually Perfect
This was my go-to over summer as it’s really impressive coverage for a bb product. It also has a matte but non-drying finish that can withstand boiling temperatures.

Light-Medium Natural Skin Foundations

Natural skin foundations don't have a particular matte or dewy finish and are usually light-medium in coverage, which makes them perfect for everyday wear.


Coverage: Light-Medium
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Not great
Colour Match: F300 - Pretty good, though it could be slightly more yellow in tone
This is quite a nice foundation I just have ones I like better. However if you have medium-olive skin and struggle with the drugstore, this affordable brand is worth checking out as all their shades lean towards these sorts of tones.

Sleek Bare Skin Foundation* | £8.99 (discontinued)
Coverage: Light-Medium
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Decent
Colour Match: Bamboo – this isn’t the best, it’s very orange in tone
This is actually a really nice drugstore formula for everyday wear, though unfortunately it does seem to have been discontinued. Whilst it does have an unusually large selection of shades, the tone of this isn’t quite right for me so I tend not to go for it.

Coverage: Light-Medium
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: Walnut (I do also have Taupe, which is too light and neutral) – this is quite a good match though I would’ve liked more warmth.
This is the one I go for when my skin is in meltdown as it doesn’t clog my pores or break me out more. It gives good coverage whilst still allowing the skin to breathe.

Coverage: Light-Medium
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Ok
Colour Match: 4.5 - Very Good/Virtually Perfect
I really love this foundation as I feel it delivers on the flawless skin front whilst still feeling so lightweight on the skin. My downside is that my skin tends to drink this up in the summer especially and it can get a bit dewy as the day goes on.

L’Oreal True Match Foundation (Original - discontinued) | £9.99
Coverage: Medium
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Not the best
Colour Match: W4 + N7 – the letters and numbers seem to stop corresponding to anything halfway through this range so N7 is actually warmer than W7! I can get an ok-ish match by combining the warmest shade W4 with N7.
I really do like how this looks on the skin, despite the dodgy shading. It’s the perfect coverage and finish for day-to-day wear, though I do think it has a tendency to break me out which is such  shame!

L’Oreal True Match Foundation (New Formula) | £9.99
Coverage: Medium
Finish: Natural
Staying Power:
Colour Match: W6.5 – Not Great as this is too dark and too neutral in tone. For some reason W6 doesn’t seem to exist in the UK and I think that would probably be my match!
I won’t get too into comparing the two here, as that’s going to happen below!
Coverage: Medium-Full
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: G50 and G60 – it’s a good match when I mix the two together as I seem to be right in between shades!
All in all I really like this foundation as a slightly more hydrating option that doesn’t feel too dewy for my combination skin.
Coverage: Medium-Full
Finish: Natural
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: 402 Bronze – This is an ok colour match but it’s a tad dark and a tad neutral in tone
I actually really like the formula of this so it’s a shame the colour match ironically isn’t so perfect. All in all it’s a great drugstore foundation that isn’t matte but isn’t hydrating either.

Medium Buildable Semi-Matte and Satin Foundations

These are probably my favourite finish and level of coverage for my combination skin on a day-to-day basis as they’re generally long-lasting and provide enough coverage without masking the skin.

Coverage: Medium
Finish: Satin
Staying Power: Very Good
Colour Match: N50 – this is the right sort of shade for me but unfortunately it’s just too neutral for my warm skin tone so I think I could really do with getting G50 instead.
The word ‘innovative’ probably gets bandied around a bit too much but I genuinely think this product is! These are essentially colour-adjusting drops that can be added to a foundation that’s not quite the right shade, mixed with a tinted moisturiser or worn alone. I need to play around with these more but so far I love the amazing but virtually undetectable coverage they offer.

Makeup Forever HD Foundation (Original - discontinued) | £29
Coverage: Medium
Finish: Satin
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: 127 – this is a tiny bit too light and not quite warm enough, I did order online though so it was always going to be a bit of a gamble.
I wanted to love this foundation but I was a tad underwhelmed; the formula was nice enough for me but nothing out of this world. Paired with the far-from-ideal shade, I rarely use this.
Coverage: Medium
Finish: Semi-Matte
Staying Power: Very Good
Colour Match: 30 Honey – a really bad match for me but the shade selection is so limited that not even mixing shades gives me something acceptable. It’s really cool-toned so just looks ‘off’ on me.
I like the formula of this well enough but not enough to wear that shade. This was such a disappointment to me as I really thought I’d love it.
Coverage: Medium-Full
Finish: Satin
Staying Power: Very Good
Colour Match: NC40 – pretty much spot on for me, most people should be able to find a match in this.
This is an oldie but a goodie for me! I love the coverage and the satin finish to balance out my combination skin. It isn’t especially buildable though.
Coverage: Medium-Full
Finish: Semi-Matte
Staying Power: Excellent
Colour Match: Stromboli – perfect for me.
This is my holy grail everyday foundation as it keeps my shine at bay, provides the perfect amount of coverage (which can be built to full) and the shade match is perfect.
Coverage: Medium-Full
Finish: Semi-Matte
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: Shade 7 – this is close to perfect for me.
This is the foundation I use when I want to switch it up from Sheer Glow as they’re very similar (we’ll talk more about that later!) It really like how it looks matte on the skin without being drying.

Full, Matte Foundations

I don’t own too many completely matte, full-coverage foundations as they’re more something I’d wear for a night out than on a day-to-day basis. However if you want to have a flawless, shine-free finish then this is the formula for you.

Coverage: Medium-Full
Finish: Matte
Staying Power: Excellent
Colour Match: 4.5 – this isn’t a great match for me as it’s too dark
I would like to pick up the correct shade in this as a really like the formula of this. It’s just as long-lasting as my other Double Wear (which we will get to shortly) but has a lighter, more daytime-appropriate coverage.
Coverage: Medium-Full
Finish: Matte
Staying Power: Good
Colour Match: Caramel – I would have preferred it a touch lighter and warmer but this is probably my best drugstore match
This is a bit of a nightmare to apply without it going patchy and it definitely clings to dryness. However once it’s on I do really like how it keeps my face shine-free and gives a full coverage without being suffocating.
Coverage: Full
Finish: Matte
Staying Power: Very Good
Colour Match: 330 Natural Tan – this is right in terms of light vs. dark but it’s way too neutral in tone for me
I cannot fault the formula for this if you’re after matte, full coverage, however the lack of warm-toned shades in the range stop this being a love for me.
Coverage: Full
Finish: Matte
Staying Power: Amazing
Colour Match: 3W2 Cashew – very good colour match for me. If I were to nit-pick it’s slightly more orange than I like
This is my ultimate night out foundation as it’s incredibly long-lasting, a good colour match and provides a full, matte coverage.

My Favourites and Best Colour Matches



My favourites (in order of coverage):
Nars Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturiser
Cover FX BB Gel
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation
MAC Studio Fix Fluid
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

You can read a review of all but the Nars Tinted Moisturiser (which can be found here) in this post

The best colour matches in my stash (in order of how close they are) are:
Nars Sheer Glow in Stromboli
Nars Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturiser in St. Moritz
Cover FX BB Gel in G Medium-Deep*
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation in Shade 7
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in 4.5 Warm Natural


The almost-perfect colour matches (these two lean more towards orange than yellow in tone but they're nearly there for me):
Estee Lauder Double in 3W2 Cashew
MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC40



The ones I can make work for me or depend on the time of year (as before):
Bourjois 123 Perfect in Bronze
EX1 Invisiwear Foundation in F300
Sleek Bare Skin Foundation in Bamboo*
Cover FX Custom Cover Drops in N50*
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 4.5
Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot in Caramel


Formula Comparisons

Nars Sheer Glow vs. CT Magic Foundation
A few people have asked which I prefer out of the two of these, as I must say they’re quite similar. In short: the Nars. They are very similar in coverage (being medium but effortlessly buildable to something fuller) and both look natural but flawless on the skin. The finish of the Nars Sheer Glow is a tad less matte than that of Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation. I think the staying-power is better with the Nars Sheer Glow in my experience. Stromboli in the Nars is pretty much identical to Shade 7 in the Charlotte Tilbury, I would just say that Shade 7 is the tiniest bit lighter and more neutral.

L’Oreal True Match (Original Formula) vs. L’Oreal True Match Formula
L’Oreal recently reformulated their True Match Foundation and repackaged it. Whilst I was pleased to see the sleeker, more premium packaging I was concerned by the shimmer in the new version that had not been present in the original. Whilst it doesn’t translate to the skin, I’m not quite sure what purpose it’s supposed to serve. I definitely find the new formula more easy to blend and long-lasting, however it is a tad dewier on the skin which means my face gets a little more shiny throughout the day.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup vs. Revlon Colourstay for Oily/Combination Skin
If you can find a colour match in the Revlon then it’s a really good drugstore alternative to Estee Lauder’s Double Wear. They both have a full, matte coverage and are easy to blend. I would say the Estee Lauder is longer-lasting, however the Revlon is still pretty good. For me though, the wider shade range in Double Wear makes it the one for me.

Nars Sheer Glow vs. L’Oreal Infallible Matte
Another product that seems to get compared to Nars Sheer Glow is L’Oreal’s Infallible Matte. I can certainly see why, as despite the name the L’Oreal formula is more semi-matte than anything else, though it is a tad more drying than Nars Sheer Glow. I would say the staying power of each is pretty much the same, along with the medium coverage. For me, though Sheer Glow just sits that bit better on the skin and gives a subtle radiance that the L’Oreal doesn’t. Also the shade selections are polar opposites with the L’Oreal being one of the poorest I’ve seen and the Nars being one of the widest.


Phew! If you stayed until the end of that: congratulations. I hope you found it helpful and make sure to come back in a fortnight to read all about my favourite tools and application tips.

  1. Loving the foundation series. I really wanted to try the Cover FX drops when they launched a few months ago, but in the end they dropped off my radar. I think I definitely need to go to counter to get colour matched as I've never used anything from the brand. I always hear so much good stuff about NARS but the name of the Sheer Glow has had me fooled. I mean, I like dewy skin, but I have combination skin so I need to be careful I'm not shiny and by the sounds of it this is not shiny at all - just a really good foundation! One for the Christmas list!

    1. Yeah I would definitely suggest going in and getting colour matched to the Cover FX drops are there are dozens of shades to choose from! And yes it's so misleading, definitely check Sheer Glow out :) xx

  2. There's so much information here and I love it! The Cover FX drops have been on my radar for a long time now and I really do want to try them because as you said, they seem innovative. The Nars Sheer Glow is one I do really want to try and I did nearly buy it once but a rude counter girl put me off. I really do need to get round to trying it!

  3. I must try that Nars Tinted moisturiser because it sounds amazing. I'm a big fan of Sheer Glow & DW Light too. My all time favourite foundation is Armani Luminous Silk. I'm really enjoying the new Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation & Too Faced Born This Way! Great post! xx

  4. I absolutely love this post! This is definitely one I'll keep bookmarked to refer back to, thanks for putting the time into such a comprehensive review :D

    I'm a big fan of the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation too, it's been my go-to everyday one for years and I always feel like it's really underrated. On the look out for a fuller coverage one following a really annoying breakout that's left a bunch of PIH, it's looking like Double Wear is gonna be my next purchase :)

  5. Thanks for sharing your foundation series. I never actually try any other foundation as I am afraid of having the wrong shades. So I'm always stuck with Mac Studio fix NC35 shade. But I'm eager to try the Bobbi Brown. I heard so many good reviews about it.

  9. I think I'll be hoarding for bases this season ha! The NARS Tinted moisturiser is probably what I need now, but the Charlotte Tilbury Magic foundation is pulling me to its arms... I forgot how amazingly full coverage the Estee Lauder Double Wear is - I think that's the one I'll be getting this season! xx

  10. Estee Lauder double-wear has amazing coverage but its way too heavy for me to use everyday I think - unless my skins bad or I just feel like wearing more. I feel like the only person who doesn't get on with Mac Studio fix Fluid - I think its because I have the wrong shade.. Sheer Glow has always been on my wish list, might have to take a dive and buy :)

I have tried majority of them in your stash (except the BB and CC creams which don't work for me at all) but I have a few I need to add to my list especially the Estee Lauder Double Wear which I have heard too many good things about. I also need to repurchase the NARS Sheer Glow and MAC Studio Fix Fluid (it's been a moment).

  16. It's all about DoubleWear and ColourStay for me! I really like Sheer Glow too but tend to only bother with full coverage foundations! Foundation is probably the product I have least of in my makeup collection as it's so expensive and can be so disappointing! Really want to try the Too Faced Born this Way foundation soon, buy it first and let me know what you think :P

I rarely use my Nars All Day Luminous. I've read quite a few things about the Revlon foundation and definitely need to pick it up next time I see it. A great informative post!

    1. I do actually have a full review on it. Personally I have combination skin and it's just on the right side of dewy for me to be hydrating but not shiny. Though I don't find it as long lasting as more matte formulas. I haven't tried any other ones from Bobbi Brown xx

  22. I was intersted in the L'Oreal Infallible but after reading this I think I'll just stick with my Sheer Glow. It's so disappointing to hear that is has a poor shade range as well, that's one of the things I love about the Sheer Glow!

  23. This is such a great post hun, so informative and something for everyones' preferences! I really want to try NARS' Sheer Glow foundation now! I was always under the impression that it would make my shine more prominent. But that was just me being lazy, and now really reading into the product properly. I'm loving Estée Lauders' Double Wear at the moment too. I tend to wear it only when I have somewhere special to go though, as I find the coverage so good that it's hard to take it off at night lol.

  24. Wow that's a lot of foundation! Haha. This is a great post breaking it down and such. I have the Makeup Forever HD Foundation (128) and it is the one I reach for most often. We are both NC 40! My mom had the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, which I was surprised because as you age your skin gets drier and I have heard about how super matte it is, and I have dry skin. I had the Loreal Infallible Foundation but it emphasized patches. Another favorite of mine is the new Too Faced Born This Way Foundation!

  27. Loved this post! It was so interesting to see the differences between some tough picks, be it high street or drugstore. By the way, do you think L'Oreal True Match shades vary greatly between the two versions?

    1. I think they do differ slightly! The reason I got W6.5 was as I thought it'd be closer than my mixed two as they have added new shades alongside the existing ones. I would double-check in store that yours hasn't been altered xx

  28. This was a really great post! I've been using Bare Minerals (like their original mineral formula, not their new liquid line) for the past ten years! I'm always tempted to try something new, but honestly anything other than BM makes me a bit nervous, as I'm prone to breakouts. But the Nars seems like it's worth a try. If the rest of my routine will consist of BM, which of these products do you think would be best as a foundation? Goal: covering dark spots and acne scaring (sigh)

  31. This is honestly one of the best foundation guides I've ever read.... actually I think it's the best one! I love how in-depth you go and your assortment of foundations are amazing! Def agree about the L'Oreal Infallable foundation, the colors are just horrid. I had to buy two different ones and mix them to get the right color for me. I'm very pasty and my skin tone is neutral so I'm usually screwed over by foundation shades but the L'Oreal ones were just not even close enough. Such a shame! Not really a fan of it because of that :(
