Thunking Thursday: Foundation

Today I am thunking a bottle of foundation, not fragrance. This is a rare event, because I tend to change my mind often about the foundation I use, rarely satisfied with any and always ready to switch! I didn’t adore this one, but it worked fine and I was determined to actually finish it, instead of letting it join the club of half-used bottles in a cupboard. (To be fair, some of the half-used bottles are because I use some simultaneously; my schedule is so hectic that I often have one in the bathroom, one in the car, and one in my office).

Thunk! Maybe I’ll treat myself to a higher-end foundation with help from an actual makeup person, instead of my usual drugstore cosmetics. Any suggestions? What did you thunk this week?

  1. No thunking per usual. My latest foundation purchase was Dior Backstage Face and Body. It’s not full coverage but I really like the finish. I have seen complaints because it does have alcohol as the 3rd ingredient . I have dryish skin and I haven’t noticed any ill effects although I don’t wear it everyday – I rotate all the time. The other one I really like is drugstore – physicians formula The Healthy Foundation. Shade range isn’t awesome but I like the formula and finish.

  2. I also am trying to use up the many skin care and makeup products that I have. My latest foundation purchase was Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation. I absolutely love it, especially that is has SPF 40, peptides, and skin care. It feels light and has nice coverage and finish. I went to a Bobbi Brown counter at Nordstroms and had the SA match my skin for the correct shade. Prior to Bobbi Brown I had used various Chanel foundations for years which are very nice, and recently also tried Jane Iredale per my dermatologist recommendation.
    I thunked a mini bottle of Fath de Fath. I love it so much I have stocked up!

  3. I can’t help with the foundation – sorry, but you have inspired me to thunking three bottles of oil well past its best by date – apricot, jojoba and argan. I wish I could buy smaller bottles. They are expensive to replace and I never manage to use them up. Now I just have to work out what to do with the oil. I’m not sure if our local recycling facility accepts it, although they do take cooking oil.

  4. I was trying out some foundations today that I seemed to have had for ages.One of them seemed to haver seperated and become very oily. I tried shaking, squeezing the tube numerous times,but couldn’t get it to come out in the correct consistancy. Will probably thunk it tomorrow.

  5. What type of foundation do you usually prefer: matte and full coverage? Sheer and dewy? There are so many options these days!

    I’ve narrowed down my foundations to just two that I’m happy with. I have the Nars Radiance tinted moisturizer, which is more full coverage than the average tinted moisturizer. I love the consistency of it and I wear it when I want to look fresh-faced. My other current favorite is the Bobbi Brown Skin Longwear, which is more of a satin matte finish.
