I recently decided i am going to do a series of "My Top 5" including blushers, primers, makeup brushes and more. I enjoy reading posts about other bloggers favourites and finding new products that work for me. I do struggle with oily skin but i will advise if the product would work for other skin types.
I have been using this since last summer and i have kept re-purchasing it and will keep using it for a long time to come. I have tried many full coverage foundations and found they are infact not full coverage at all. My skin is pretty clear and i only have the odd breakout now and again but i do generally just like the full coverage look. This foundation is the most full coverage i have found and surprisingly it doesn't feel heavy on my skin. The bottle has a pump for easy application. It lasts all day even with my oily skin, it leaves a dewy finish but once i apply my powder it looks amazing.

Skin type: I think this would also work for dry skin or anyone who has bad breakouts.
I bought this back in January after using the primer from the Face Finity Range. This foundation is medium coverage and feels very light on my skin. I do find i reach more for this foundation when my skin is clear as it does cling a little to any dry areas but it works well with my oily skin. Boots sell this for £12.00 but if you click the link above all beauty sell it for only £8.15.

Skin type: Oily skin, unsure if it would work well with dry skin.
My boyfriend bought me this for Christmas and he actually got the right shade and everything! The downfall is it doesn't come with a pump so i did pay an additional £3 for the pump. The coverage is medium but buildable. I have found i dont need to use alot of product as it does spread well. It states to absorb oil and lasts for 8 hours which i have found it does last longer if you apply powder during the day. If i want a fuller coverage i have recently been mixing this with my Revlon Colorstay Foundation which gives the perfect coverage.

Skin type: Oily Skin (it does cling to my dry patches but i have heard people with dry skin say it worked for them)
I also got a sample size of this in a set for Christmas. This is a light coverage foundation so i honestly didnt think i would like it at all. I was wrong, this foundation blends my blemishes and evens out my skin tone. Yes the coverage is light so i wouldn't use this if i have a breakout. I first wore this on an all day shopping trip and it did last all day, i had a little bit of shine around my chin but i would of normally touched up with powder. I can see this being a favourite in the summer.

Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Foundation | £5.99
I dont usually like Collection products but i did pick this up a few months ago. The main reason i picked it up is that it is oil free and lasts for up to 16 hours. The foundation does feel a little thick but once i have buffed it into my skin it feels quite light. The shades i have read alot of people say they are a little dark/orange but for me once applied it doesn't look orange and once i buff it in a little more it blends well.
