Finding the RIGHT Foundation...
I have been on a HUNT to replace my DREAM MATTE MOUSSE by MAYBELLINE but It has been so hard,  finding the right color and brand.So I literally bought these products and tried them out and some I  returned and SOME I lost the receipt. SO I had no choice but to keep them. Sigh.  I just had the most difficult time because some of the foundations had no tester, so I was Guessing or taking suggestions for the people that worked in the pharmacy. ( SOME were no help ) Frustrating! I wanted to switch my foundation because first off, I been using this for years and I love love love this foundation. WHY? Med coverage but it didn't feel cakey on my face. Didn't break me out and I have a love for mousses apparently. I just loved how this felt on my face. I was using honey baige and that is hellla dark for me now. I just became lighter. I wanted to try liquid foundation and I just needed a change. So here are the foundations I have tried....

First one I tried was the Super stay by Maybelline and I grabbed the wrong color, even though I tried some on my hand, it appeared to dark on my face. The coverage was good, because it didn't have a pump I seemed to have applied to much on my face and I just felt so caked on. I would say this is Med to Full coverage and It did feel heavy, maybe just because I did use to much on my brush. It was blend-able and build able. I didn't break out. I did just use this for  two days but I kept this one for the summer because I'd like to give this another try and This is one of the products I lost the receipt for.  I will give this another chance. I didn't love it or hate it..just cause it was not my color it was so hard to really review this. = ( 

Second one I tried Or was suggested to try was the REVLON PHOTO READY AIRBRUSH MOUSSE. This is the lightest coverage ever. I mean what the heck is the point of wearing foundation. This ugh. The girl was raving about this product and how much she loved it, so I decided to try it out myself. It comes with a pump but Don't even try to control this because YOU CAN'T. It's messy in my opinion and it comes out so watery. I put it on and my gosh sparkles. wth! This gave me little red bumps after using this product. OKAY, let me try to talk about the positive side to this product. I put it on and She gave me Natural Beige btw I thought this was way light. ANOTHER FAIL! But when I put it on, it didn't cover much and it felt really light.. That part I liked. When I put this on I actually was surprised to have liked it on my face but THAT DIDN'T LAST. I went outside for maybe an hour and it just came off. I was oily mostly on my cheeks. This one Was just not for me.I suggest this for people who have nothing to hide and just want that shine for pictures or going out. This is perfect for you. I do not suggest this to people who like med to full coverage. 

After that I tried the Revlon color stay. This was really difficult because finding my color was just impossible. First off, I live in Canada and Relovn color stay doesn't have the same color selection that the u.s does. We have like 8 colors and NO TESTERS. So first store, I asked this lady and she suggested nude and It was sooooo effing light. She said, you can darken it with your powder. OKAY, I thought wthhhh, this girl does not know what shes talking about. Foundation should match your skin, you shouldn't have to go out of your way to make it your color. So I went to my local drug store and that lady was super helpful. She actually opened one and tried it on and it was true beige. Tried it the next day and AGAIN, to dark. The other thing I hated. I used very little product and this was just not blendable, It dried pretty fast. it was a mat finish. Up close you can see the makeup. Up close you can tell you were wearing foundation and the point is to make it seem like your not. The plus about this is I didn't get oily. That I love Loved about this product. I just hated how it looked on my skin. A lot of people love this foundation and This is just not for me. I don't need that much coverage on my face. I would say this is med to full coverage 

At this point I wanted to just go back to my orginal dream matt mousse and I did buy another one with a different shade. lighter. I also purchased the revlon photo ready in GOLDEN BEIGE, This I LOVEEEE so much. Not heavy, has a amazing pump and the color was right for me. I don't see the sparkles and You don't need much product to cover up. Also very bendable. I like this product a lot. This makes your face nice and airbrushed kind of look. I'll be trying this out more to see if I break out and how my face reacts to this, but so far so good. = ) 

I would definitely recommend this product. so far....=)

Night time FACE routine! *

I start with Removing my makeup with POND'S Cleaning and Makeup removing Towelettes..This removes my eye makeup and foundation without irritating my skin. Its soaked with Vitamin E, chamomile and green tea. It comes with 30 wet towelettes and I got this at Walmart for 5-6 dollars. 
After I take out all my make up I wash my face with my face wash 
 La roche-Posay 
 Wash my face and PAT DRY. 
 Don't rub because this irritates the skin and This helped me with my acne as well. 

                                          Then I apply MY NIVEA TONER and wipe my face to capture any other dirt
                                          and oil I May have missed
I Just recently turned 24 and I wanted to start using eye creme for my under eyes. ( I would love other suggestions ) I don't have any wrinkles but I'd like to prevent them, as I am half way to 30 and also like to keep my under eyes moisturized. 

After that I put on my serum and I just recently got this so no review. Again, Walmart and this was retailing at $24.00
Loreal PARIS youth Code serum. 
I will be back to do a review on this. 

Last I moisturize my face with
Olay Night Fortifying cream 
with aloe, vitamin E,b3 and pro vitamin b5. 
I have to say I seen a big change on how my skin felt in the morning after applying this. I woke up to smoother and moisturized skin! I give this 5 stars ***** This makes applying my makeup easier in the morning. It just glides on so perfect! There is a smell but its not bad at all. This retails for $15.00


That is my night routine.. xoxox 

Purifying Foaming Gel 
For Oily Sensitive skin. 

I use to have really bad breakouts and I tried everything. One day I just went to my local drugstore and was recommend this product. This is the best face wash in my opinion. It helped me get rid of my pimples, after using it for 1 month I seen changes in my face. Redness went away and after 6 months total acne GONE! This retails for $22.00. I know it's a little pricey but this bottle last me 3 months. A little goes a long way. You don't need much to lather. = ) Its gentle on the skin and soap free. This product is made in Montreal, so other then Canada, I'm not sure where you can purchase it. If you do live in Canada and looking for a good face wash I recommended this product. ***** 5 stars. 

  La roche-posay 
Effaclar H 
Compensating Soothing Moisturizer 

With the face wash I used the same brand moisturizer. This was amazing on my skin.Also made for oily skin and it made my skin feel smooth and non greasy feeling. The only down side to this was it came in a 40 ml and it cost $30. This was just to expensive and this bottle lasted me not even a month. So I had to switch it up. If you can afford something like this, I recommend this Moisturizer but if you can't, like me, I switched to something more affordable and larger in quantity.  

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
For normal to dry skin
Fragrance free 
For sensitive skin

I switched to this moisturizer and I love it just as much. Less expensive, I think this retails for about $10.00. This last for a long long time. AGAIN a little goes a long way!  Too much of this on will make your face more oily. So be careful applying to much on your face. This is soo gentle on the skin, no smell and moisturizes very well especially in the winter. This bottle comes in 250 ml and I'm not even half way.. -_- SO amazing I truly recommend this  **** 4 starts! = )

 Nivea Visage 
Gental Toner  
For Dry to sensitive skin. 

I love this toner because its so gentle on my skin and there's no alcohol in it. Toners with Alcohol irritated my skin and my skin just turned more red and my pimples seemed to get worse. I just recently purchased this and so far so good. This is both in My day time and Night time routine. It has natural almond oil and Caledonia extract. Doesn't dry out your skin, leaves it feeling moisturized. I give this **** stars. 

This sums up my DATTIME face routine. 
I wash my face, put on toner then moisturize. = ) simple and quick, then put on my makeup and start my day.
