Foundation Fails : Disappointing Products

As my baby girl (and I) get older I find myself going for more and more simple makeup routines because let’s face it, babies have no patience and this mama is tired. Now don’t get me wrong, I still love being full beat honey (meaning a full face of makeup) but my makeup has become almost the same each day. This being said I am always on the hunt for great and affordable foundations that will last and I thought today I would share a few that did not make the cut, and why they did not work for me.

(please note that these are my opinions and just because this product did not work for me does not mean it is bad – if you are curious, try them for yourself 🙂 )


  1. Elf tinted moisturizer – I did not like this product for several reasons; first because of the coverage, which is zero. The product states that it is a tinted moisturizer, but for me there was no tint; I also did not like the consistency or the scent.  I had high hopes for this as the price point is so good, but sadly it was a fail
  2. NXY Total Control Drop Foundation – yikes! this one is not only a fail because I did not like how it wore, but also because ever-single-time I used it some would inevitably drop on my clothes. Now you can chalk this up to me being messy, but honestly what a horrible idea for packaging – i prefer a good old pump! I also thought that this lacked the coverage I was hoping for and it started to wear very unevenly after several hours and by the end of the day you could see it starting to break up on the skin. I have also heard some amazing reviews on this as well, but for me it did not work as I hoped it would.
  3. L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte – When I purchased this guy I was so hopefully because I was quite a few beauty bloggers talk about how great it is, but for me it was a BIG flop. I experienced many of the same issues as the NXY product. I also felt like it made my skin look so dull. I am wanting to try to pro glow version because I am all about second chances 😉

I usually do not like to talk negatively about anything, but part of reviews is constructive criticism and as I said, just because it did not work for me does not mean this wont work for you. Also, each of these products I tried several times with different primers and powders – the only way to know is if you try, right!? what are some of your ride or die foundations?

Happy Thursday, xoxo
