I was never much of a liquid foundation person. I used Bare Minerals through high school and most of college, but the past couple of years have experimented with different powders, tinted moisturizers for summer (Laura Mercier is my fave), and now liquids. As I get older (lol), my skin has been changing, and I’ve noticed a difference in needing a liquid for dryer, winter months.
My mom started using Givenchy’s Photo’Perfexion
, and when she bought a shade too light for her skin, I benefied and became hooked. I love the lightness, how it’s fast absorbing, and it has a nice smell. Without a Sephora gift card, I really can’t justify the price. I recently tried Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation
and am now hooked on a product for under $10! It seems nearly identical to me with a similar light coverage and smell.
Maybelline: $6 vs. Givenchy $47
