Wordiest title ever but also the most descriptive.
I’ll be honest with you: I could have sworn I did this post a month and a half ago. No, seriously, SWORN. Why? Because I had plans to review that Glamoflauge one, so sure I had posted swatches. Same with my CoverGirl Stay Fabulous- I’ve had that one for a while. I was going through old pictures on my phone (deleting the ridiculous # of selfies I take for these posts) and saw the swatch pictures and thought “Oh, I forgot I did this.” And then when I went to check to make sure they were up (before deleting the swatches and needing to totally redo them), I quickly found out they were not on the blog. Hrm.
But no fear: despite being taken in May, I’ll share them anyway, because I really don’t want to bother swatching any more. Also, sorry, I didn’t label these because they’re mobile pictures.
The foundations I have for you today are all “lightest shades” in a foundation line- and all drugstore. Par usual, these are in natural light via a window and then with flash (on the right). I list these top to bottom from wrist swatches, and from ear to chin on jaw and collarbone swatches (as I start swatching near my ear). In order, they are:
- Hard Candy Glamoflauge in 930 Porcelain. This is the lightest shade and looks warm-toned/yellow-toned. I know this isn’t called Ivory, but it’s even lighter than Ivory!
- Hard Candy Glamoflauge in 932 Ivory. Second lightest shade, but still lighter than most drugstore foundations. This is pinker in tone.
- Almay TLC in 120 Ivory. Possibly the darkest shade in the set, but the lightest shade from this line. Undertones are kind of harder to pick up for me. It’s cooler in tone but idk, it’s kinda peachy too.
- CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous in 805 Ivory. Slightly more peachy-pink.
- Revlon ColorStay Whipped in 110 Ivory. To me this actually looks more neutral, although it’s been heralded as cool-toned. It’s lighter than the Almay and CoverGirl, actually.
