MAC is running a promotion for $10 off of foundations and it ends at 3:00am EST on 9/28/2021. No promo code is required, the prices are already marked down on the website. So if you need to restock or have been wanting to try any of the MAC foundations, this is a good sale. They also offer free shipping over $25. So any foundation, with the exception of the stick foundation (because it is on clearance), will qualify for free shipping.

At this point in history, I’m sure a lot of people don’t need a review of this foundation. But there are always new people just getting into makeup, or even just discovering MAC. So maybe this can still be helpful for someone out there.

On to the review, the swatches, and how the shades C8 and NC45 look on me.

Lancome Teint Idole Ulta Wear Foundation Stick (450 Suede Neutral)

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation Stick 450 Suede Neutral

If you were around to read my Lancome Makeup Round-Up back in February, you may be surprised that I’m posting about this brand. At the time, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be purchasing any more Lancome products, but nevertheless, here we are.

If you are a fan of Lancome and are interested in anything, now is a good time to place an order. They have a friends and family sale going on that ends at 11:59 PM PT on August 31, 2021. If you don’t have an account you can get 25% off and those who do have an account (free to join), get 30% off. They have revamped their brush line since I posted my round-up, but you can check that post for an overview of products I have tried from them. I also have stand alone posts for their Color Design Eyeshadow Singles (Gold Lame and Canyon Swatches) and their Dual Finish Highlighter Illuminating Powders (Dazzling Bronze and Sparkling Peche).

Now let’s get into my thoughts on the newly reformulated Lancome Foundation Stick.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick (Golden Honey and Golden Swatches)

Top: Golden (6) | Bottom: Golden Honey (5.75)

The Macy’s 10 Days of Glam continues today with the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick on sale for $23.50. This foundation has a beautiful natural satin finish on my dry skin type. I do use heavy oil-based moisturizers, so that may make a difference. It has medium coverage that I’d say is slightly buildable to full. I do have some hyper-pigmentation and acne scars that it doesn’t completely cover. I don’t have an issue with that, but I wanted to mention it since the brand claims it has medium to full coverage.
