I started writing this post a good two weeks ago and to be honest, just got too busy (*lazy*) to actually continue writing it. I get too busy ‘researching’ what I want to write about, and then end up on a beauty website looking at things I can’t afford to buy, oops. In reality, I’ve just been a bit slack.
So anyway, this post was and still is going to be a rant as the majority of them are. So here we go…
WHY IN THE FRESH HELL DO ALL THE GOOD FOUNDATIONS HAVE SPF IN THEM!?
I’m devastated, always devastated when I find a good, great or even slightly decent foundation, only to discover the dreaded Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide in the ingredients list.
Like I get it, skin cancer is a huge issue both nationally and internationally, but I am telling you right now that a measly SPF or 10, 12 or 15 is not going to save a life, at all, ever.
Take Estee Lauders Doublewear foundation for example, it is my favourite foundation to date! It boasts an immense 15 hour wear, transfer proof, sweat proof, oil free and oil controlling, lightweight and comfortable, with a medium build-able coverage. And to be perfectly honest, it lives up to all of the claims it makes, for me at least! It’s absolutely perfect for a full day at work, I apply it at 7.30 in the morning and it still looks flawless at 9.30pm when I’m getting ready to head to bed, what more could you want right!?
You want a foundation you can interchange both during the day and night and know that you have full confidence in your foundation to both last all day and night, but to also photograph well, which is where we run into our issue.
Doublewear would sit as my dream foundation, if it existed in an SPF-less world! The titanium dioxide or zinc oxide that are found in the SPF of some foundations leave that gross white cast across the face when flash is used in photos, so essentially any night time photo taken, which is a pain in the ass.
So now the question is what direction does my oily ass skin head in for a flashback free foundation!! Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated!!!
