Day 04: Foundation

If i had to choose a favourite foundation it'd have to be between the Clinique superbalanced makeup and MAC studio Fix Fluid SPF 15. I've been using the Clinique foundation for a few years and have only recently started using the MAC. I had tried in the past to get matched with MAC but they couldn't find a suitable match so i went with Clinique at the time and actually really liked it. I had no problems with Clinique so i stuck with it.. until recently when my  mom and i stopped by a MAC counter and i just asked if they could match me and they DID! I was really excited because i've always heard good things about MAC. 

I really like the MAC foundation; i love the overall finish it gives, however, it's causing some kind of reaction to my face. I notice i get these tiny bumps on my face that i`ve never had before. I've never had this problem with Clinique and i've even slept with it on my face. When i wear the MAC i wash my face as soon as i get home and i still get little tiny bumps all over my face. Also i only wear foundation about once a week. I was told to use a really good primer which will prevent the foundation from reacting to my skin this way but i don`t know yet. I will look into it and let you guys know if it works or not. If it doesn't work, i'll be going back to my trusted Clinique foundation.

OMG, I have the same passion for these two foundations. I must say that it is very hard for me to pick a fave.

Clinique is my fav for face products and MAC for colours. Me, I tend to get reactions from most foundations and products. Having sensitive skin plus acne proned, sucks... But so far my skin has had a good reaction to Bare Minerial Makeup. It's has a little bit of a powdery look though which isn't so nice.

@Ashelle - I heard Bare minerals is okay coverage but doesn't give that nice finish like MAC does :(

I agree. Well maybe I'll splurge and get some MAC to try out for special events where I want that extra coverage. I'm loving your reviews on products btw.
