Top 5 High End Foundations For Normal/Dry Skin

on
Monday, December 2, 2013

Choosing a right foundation shade along with your skin type is as much important as choosing a right foundation according to your skin tone. Finding a great foundation for your skin can be difficult if you are not aware what skin type you've. One product may be best for someone, but for you it may turn awful or didn't work for you? In general, there an A LOT of A-H-MAH-ZING foundations out there, but the key of finding the one that suited you best can be tricky.



I already posted my Top 5 Drugstore Foundations for Oily/Combination and Normal/Dry skin earlier. In case, you've missed drugstore version, you can check it out here. People having normal/dry skin, they should consider their selves lucky enough that they can choose their foundations easily regardless of its staying power unlike ''US'' oilies. I've tested and tried some of the mentioned foundations for dry sensitive skin as samples if I don't own them and many of them are long lasting foundations which is going to be a plus point. My top picks are completely unbiased. I hope you find it helpful.

  2. Laura Mercier silk cream foundation and Lancome idole Ultra are one of my all time favorites! I have combination/oily skin and they work amazingly! Well actually Lancome Idole Ultra is targeted towards combo/oily skin :) Laura Mercier isn't really (it's for all) but it's thick enough to really stay on all day :D love them!!!
    Hopefully soon I can try the Nars :)

  10. I am very curious about the laura mercier silk creme foundation. I've ever tried their tinted moisturizer and it was amazing. I usually use BB creams though and have never really tried any foundation :P

  20. I've heard a lot of great things about that Laura Mercier foundation. Unfortunately for me, I think no foundation is the best "foundation" choice for me. My skin just doesn't like the heaviness. I try to just take care of my skin now so it naturally looks as flawless as possible!

  29. I used to LOVE the NARS Sheer Glow but for some reason it makes my skin super oily now. I have no idea if they changed the formula in the past few years but the last bottle I bought really disappointed me. I want to give it another try. Maybe I need a better primer.

    ReplyDelete

  44. This could not have come at a better time. I just looked at my bottle and realized I need more foundation STAT! I am a creature of habit so I'll probably stick with Chanel for now, but I also love Bobbi Brown's foundation stick. I do want to look at the NARS you mentioned next time I get to the store. Might be a winner!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you for this... perfect read for my type of skin

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would really love to try Lancome and Laura Mercier products. Can't wait for my next trip to a normal country unlike my own where I can find these products as well as a MAC and a Sephora :P Not to ramble, but I really need to move away asap! :( GIG

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. My favorite brand is Estee Lauder. I find that in the winter months I do need extra moisturizer.

    ReplyDelete
  52. It amazes me how many different foundations are out there! When I go shopping for foundation which has been a while I get so confused you have medium, dark, light, for oily skin, dry skin, some with sunscreen some goes on lightly or etc...I literally get confused so thanks for sharing this!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm not much of a makeup girl, so when I bother, I generally do a liquid powder instead of a foundation. (I really don't need it because I have an even skin tone.) But if I'm doing foundation, it's Lancome.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would love to try MAC foundation. I would've like to hear a little about each of the foundations you chose and why as well the prices :) Will have to go search around and get some more info.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm so pale I have a hard time finding foundations that blend well. Thanks for sharing your recommendations - I will be on the lookout for them next time I'm make-up shopping

    ReplyDelete
  56. Haven't tried any of this good quality foundies. I've heard good reviews about mac products. I think I'd try the mac foundation. :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Foundation is so important to me because I have huge dark circles under my eyes and an uneven skin tone. Thanks for all this information to help me choose one that is perfect for me.

    ReplyDelete
  58. MAC is always great for most anything. I like getting what Im paying for. Will have a look out for the other ones, always nice to try new things.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am terrible with makeup, especially foundation. I seem to never get the color right. However, I'm amazed at the wide variety of things out there on the market now.

  60. My daughter has a few of these foundations and I must say she speaks very highly of them. I know she uses the Burberry Velvet and the Mac often!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Mac is the only one on this list that I've tried. Maybe I'll have to give the others a shot!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am pretty new to makeup and I've been thinking about trying that MAC makeup! Thank you for sharing!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm not really a make-up person, so this is a great way for me to see what the best quality foundations are without actually spending any money!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I really want to try Burberry Velvet. I have heard wonderful things about it!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. At the moment I'm using L'oreal Visible Lift, and it's perfect for coverage and also for the pocket :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I don't wear foundation. However, I will share this with my friends who do.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I personally love the bare minerals, but I don't wear foundation all that often.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I didn't know Burberry offers foundation! Looks like these are high quality :-) Thanks for the review :-)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Thanks for sharing, I've been wanting to branch out to some higher end makeup brands. Of course, Mac is a brand I recognize, but it's nice to know what else is out there.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm so in the dark as to which foundation is best for me. No matter which brand I choose, it seems to sweat off in the Florida heat and humidity. Can you recommend a brand that doesn't sweat off so quickly?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'd love to buy higher end makeup products - at least foundation and powder but the frugal-ness in me won't allow it. My problem is knowing which one to splurge on. You narrowed it down to 5 but then how do I choose from there?

    ReplyDelete
  74. I don't wear foundation a lot but I am in the market for a new one. Definitely checking these out, thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I really need to look for a good foundation. Especially because i have so many weddings and showers this year to attend. I wear make up so rarely, that I have no Idea what would be best for me

    ReplyDelete
  76. Your blog is so informative! I'm sharing this post and your blog with my teens. They love all of this and you do a great job sharing! I do need new foundation and will be checking into these.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I usually use Mac studio fix, but am looking for new options. I will have to see if I can try some of these. Thanks for the list!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Great products, heard lots of good things about MAC. Will have to try it out and see how well it works on my skin

    ReplyDelete
  79. I have so little knowledge about make ups but I have read good reviews about MAC. I don't use foundation but I have used BB cream but the brand I bought doesn't suit my skin so I have frequent breakouts. I have oily skin :(

  80. I have never been one for liquid foundations. However as I am aging - I see now why so many people are. Thanks for sharing these.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have actually never loved any liquid foundation. I would love to try the Burberry Velvet though.

    ReplyDelete
  82. This sounds like it would be very easy to apply for great coverage.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Good products, I use mineral makeup from Mia Mariu because I have eczema and most liquid foundation dries my skin out even worse than before. I will have to give one of these a try though just to see. Thanks for the post.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I don't use a liquid foundation. I use Bare Minerals, because it's one of the only foundations that blends well, and doesn't irritate my skin or increase shine. I love that I can sleep in it, as well!

    ReplyDelete
  85. thanks for your suggestions! I really want to try Nars Sheer Glow! I keep on hearing great things about it!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I have not heard of any of those. I use Artistry Mineral Foundation. I love how it goes on light and you don't feel like you have frosting on your face.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I really want to try the Burberry one. I currently use bare minerals but I need to branch out!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Oh, these are such great options. I was thinking of trying out a MAC foundation, but these look worth a try!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Great foundations though I haven't tried all of them. I don't wear much make up so I don't usually invest on having a foundation.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Those are such great foundations though I haven't tried all of them. I don't wear much make up nor wear make up everyday so I don't usually invest on having one.

    ReplyDelete
  91. great option to choice! I already try lancome and i love it <3

    ReplyDelete
  92. Actually considering buying a new foundation and I am into Mac. I guess I should try Lancome as well.
