It's a mighty strange thing for me, my new obsession, it's just not..ME, but I confess...
"I am currently totally obsessed and infatuated with make up bases."
I am so not a base person....foundation is something I wear like once every three to six months-it came to that point! ( Guess you can tell how many times I go to parties!)
Tinted moisturizers and BB creams were also started to become too much, I think because as my skin became more clear and I felt less of a need for products to ruin what was already going on that I was happy with but then...I dug out a foundation for a party and I fell in love (HARD) for it.
Weightless, longevity, perfect color match, natural looking- is this what I have been missing??
Well, you know how I am with beauty...I don't go crazy ( YEAH RIGHT!)
I have been diving deep now into the world of bases and have a nice set of samples on my desk being toyed with as I decide the ultimate winner to soon purchase.

Jemma Kidd's Light as Air Foundation - Discontinued
Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation - will soon no longer be available for the updated "Manifinish" formula.
Current contenders to potentially enter my collection:
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
SHOCKER! I would have never in a million years have picked this foundation for myself. High coverage and a thick creme is something I run from, but a baby pea size of this stuff with the right application looks AMAZING.
It actually does not feel as heavy as I had anticipated, and it isn't as high coverage as I imagined-shocked again. It's very high medium coverage and buildable. I imagine a tube will last me years.
Dr. Jart Water Fuse BB Cream
I've tried many BB creams but nothing from Dr Jart who seemed to have taken over the larger part of the higher end BB cream audience in Western markets. Is this one really worth the hype? One way to find out!
YSL Touche Eclat Foundation
I've gone through a few samples of this and love the glowy finish. I heard it's very similar to Revlon's Nearly Naked, if so, I can save myself $40 bucks but having this on your vanity does feel special...
Has anyone tried both?

Armani Luminous Silk
I tried the ever so popular Maestro version by Armani but it's just not for me...the dry oil texture, I mean I JUST got on the liquid foundation boat...so I'm eyeing with the ongoing classic of the luminous silk formula. Hyped for years for looking flawless pretty much all the time, the lack of SPF is an added plus to me. This is not something for my daily routine, just night's out.
Now that my obsession is out in full force, please do share your favorite base products!
I'm on the hunt! ROAR!
