Hey guys, I hope you are well. As you all know, for the past couple of years I have been a HUGE fan of Note Cosmetics. Their brand is amazing from foundation to lipsticks and all in between. I could chat all day about all the products I love and use, but for today I am sticking to foundation.
Over the past few months my skin has went through a massive change. Thankfully, there has been a Note Foundation for me to change to which is amazing. Originally my skin was extremely oily. So the first foundation I tried was the Mattifying Extreme Wear Foundation, which to be honest I absolutely hated.
On my skin it was too heavy but that’s not to say that you wouldn’t love it! Absolutely give it a go if you suffer from very oily skin and want zero shine. I think it would have been better suited to me when I was a teenager/early 20’s.
Instead of giving up on the brand. I was curious to see how the Detox and Protect Foundation performed.
Well I was pleasantly surprised! For over a year I basically wore this every single day. What started out as a ‘cheaper option for during the week’, turned into my every day foundation despite what I was doing. I would wear this to weddings and everything in between. As a fake tan wearer, the shades are more yellow toned which suit me perfectly. There are more shades being developed which will only be a great thing for anyone who is more ‘pink’ toned in skin.
I have raved about this foundation for so long now that lots of my family, friends and clients are all using it and love it as much as me.
Towards the end of last year my skin turned really dry and the Detox and Protect Foundation was no longer doing me any favours. I then purchased the ‘Luminous Foundation.’
I have been using this for the past five months now, every single day and I am just finished my first tube. The coverage is AMAZING and it doesn’t cling to my dry skin. What I absolutely love about this brand is how versatile it is. The fact that I can go between two formulas, depending on my skin is just amazing.
The price point is also just brilliant. All three foundations are under £12 and they last for such a long time.
So with all that being said my personal opinion on which foundation suits which skin type is:
Detox and Protect Suits Normal/Oily/Combination Skin
Mattifying Extreme Wear suits very oily skin
Luminous suits Normal/dry skin.
If you haven’t already tried the foundations then definitely give them a chance. As always, not everyone will suit them and thats ok! I also don’t give any advise on shades unless you are standing right in front of me, so ask for help if you are buying them in a store, as I don’t want to guide you wrong!
The two places I buy mine from is the Medical Hall in the Quays, Shopping Centre Newry and McKeevers Chemist Armagh. Have a look at their website for a full list of retailers who stock the brand.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely week,
Love Sarah xxx
