Top Foundations/ Top Fonduri de Ten

Cosmopolitan has a top 9 foundation list, a very surprising one as a matter of fact and I got to try out two of them. On the second place we find Estée Lauder Double Wear and on the third Maybelline Fit Me, which are the ones I’m going to discuss today after testing them for two weeks straight.

“Estée Lauder Double Wear”

Looking for a smooth and perfect finish, fast and long lasting application? Then this is the one for you. I must say that I was a bit sceptical in the beginning because you don’t always get what you pay for. It offers indeed what they say on the bottle and I was surprised to see that it’s even waterproof resistant, which I didn’t expect at all. I went shopping the other day and because of a sudden change of plans I’ve found myself on the beach. Because it was really hot I had to go in the water and most of my makeup remained intact including the foundation. Later when I started to clean my face I still had foundation coming off, so … Way to go Estée Lauder! It has indeed a smooth and perfect finish and it offers more coverage compared to most of the foundations I have tried so far. Because I have freckles, I’m always looking to find something that offers a good coverage and yes, Estée Lauder made my happy.

When I buy a new makeup product, especially when it comes to foundation, I always do this trick. I only apply it on half of the face so that I can notice the good and the bad. This helps me to form a first impression about the product , it’s like a personal test. I want to see a difference with my foundation but I still want it to look natural, so that’s why I do it. Of course it passed the test from the beginning. And another plus, once it’s dry it doesn’t leave smudges on the clothes like the rest of the foundations.

P.S: Don’t worry about shades, it has more than 60 available !

CONS:

  • Because of the bottle you may use more product than need it.
  • Perhaps a bit pricy for a day to day application?

“Maybelline Fit Me”

I think Maybelline made its debut in every girls life around high school. It was in every backpack and purse I have ever worn back then. It was a must have and now, years later, you can still find it in my makeup draw. I don’t know how they do it, but they always manage to stay on top of my first choices. With Maybelline Fit Me is no difference of course. It offers a lot for a drugstore brand and for the money. You can never go wrong with Maybelline. Smooth finish? Yes! Good coverage? Yes! Long lasting application? Yes again!

The thing with this one and in my experience with Maybelline foundations in general, you always need to spend more time applying it because otherwise it will leave smudges and always but always needs to be fixed with powder. Currently as I tested it out, it’s my day to day choice!

CONS:

  • Maybelline leaves smudges so you need to spend some more time applying it to avoid that.
  • In extremely hot weather circumstances it comes off easily.
  • Stains the clothes.
  • You always need powder to fix it.

Cosmopiltan are o lista surprinzatoare a celor 9 cele mai bune fonduri de ten. Eu am decis sa testez Estée Lauder Double Wear ce se afla pe locul doi urmat de locul trei Maybelline Fit Me.

“Estée Lauder Double Wear”

Daca esti in cautarea unui fond de ten cu finisaj perfect de lunga durata ce iti lasa tenul fin si se aplica usor, atunci Estée Lauder este ceea ce cauti. Va spun sincer ca am fost destul de sceptica la inceput si asta pentru ca in general nu prea se intampla sa primesti pentru ceea ce platesti. In cazul asta din fericire este diferit si asta pentru ca te poti bucura de toate cele mentionate pe ambalaj si nu numai. Intr-o zi ma aflam la cumparaturi si o intorsatura brusca de situatie m-a facut sa ajung direct la plaja. Deoarece era foarte cald am intrat in apa si pot sa va spun ca machiajul, inclusiv fondul de ten au ramas aproape intacte. Mai tarziu, cand am ajuns acasa si am inceput sa ma demachiez, inca se lua fond de ten. Super tare Estée Lauder! Intr-adevar are un finish natural si fin, aplicandu-se mult mai usor fata de majoritatea fondurilor de ten pe care le-am incercat pana acum. Deoarece am pistrui, urmaresc intotdeauna o acoperire buna si da, Estée Lauder a reusit sa ma multumeasca!

Cand cumpar un produs nou cosmetic, mai ales un fond de ten, intotdeauna fac urmatorul test. Aplicand numai pe jumatate de fata fondul de ten, am ocazia sa vad exact cum lucreaza, cum acopera si daca este o diferenta mare. Practic ma ajuta sa imi formez o prima impresie. Si da, bineinteles ca vreau o acoperire buna dar in acelasi timp vreau un look natural, sa nu se cunoasca. A trecut testul inca de la inceput pentru ca intr-adevar nu iti incarca fata si pe deasupra nu lasa nici pete pe haine ca majoritatea fondurilor de ten incercate pana in prezent.

P.S: Nu iti fa griji in privinta nuantelor, are peste 60 disponibile!

“Maybelline Fit Me”

Cred ca Maybelline isi face debutul in viata oricarei fete undeva prin perioada liceului. Era in fiecare ghiozdan sau geanta la vremea aia iar acum, cativa ani mai tarziu, lucrurile au ramas cam la fel. Nu stiu cum reusesc sincer dar intotdeauna au reusit sa ramana in topul preferintelor mele cand vine vorba de fond de ten. Maybelline Fit Me nu este nici el mai prejos, reusind sa imi mentina statutul de client fidel, oferind foarte multe pentru categoria brandului si pentru pretul mic. Finish neted? Da! Acoperire buna? Da! De durata? Iarasi da!

Singurul inconvenient daca ar fi sa il numesc asa, nu numai cu acest produs dar cam cu toate fondurile de ten de la Maybelline in general, trebuie sa petreci mai mult timp aplicandu-l pentru ca altfel lasa urme. Si cam mereu trebuie sa fie fixat cu pudra, cel putin din experienta mea. Chiar si asa, de cand l-am testat pentru acest articol, este alegerea mea zilnica. 🙂
