I have been hearing about this foundatioin from Christina Divine as well as Fabuless Beauty and Blue (a watercoloursky), all 3 of which seem to love this foundation!
I do believe there are some Buff'd foundation users out there that I might have missed, but so far this foundation looks more promising than Everyday Minerals.
Just now I asked my sister if I could use her credit card to order some samples, and she said yes(I gave her a $5 bill to pay her back for the $4.36 USD I spent), so I JUST ordered:
1 sample of Sungrass in Concealing formula
1 sample of Wool in Concealing formula
1 sample of Sand in Concealing formula
Jennifer, the lady who runs the site, recommended me to get Antique as well, but I personally felt it might be too dark. I used Blue(a watercoloursky) as my skin reference since we have very similar skintones (thank you blue for your Buff'd posts! they really helped me pick my colors). My skin is capable of getting really really pale, so that's why i decided to put Sungrass into my sample buying because I never know if I do get pale for the winter.
So yes, I am SOOOOOO hoping that this will be my hg foundation. I seriously do. I am tired of spending money on trying to find something I'm not allergic to and is something affordable and something that works.
I heard from all 3 bloggers that the coverage is great, it lasts, and their shade matches them pretty well. Oh, and since they have oily skin like me, I think that's great that they all said how great it is. I believe all three of them had the Original formula, but I ordered the concealing formula because I have a feeling that my face will oil up right through the original formula. But after this sample, if I feel that the concealing formula is too much, then i'll just order the Original formula.
Since this is a Canadian-based company, it'll first take about 1-2 days to process, and 5-10 days to ship since I live SOOOO freakin far away from canada. On top of that, my city just went through a hurricane so I'm not quite sure if the delivery man will go through the flood water to deliver my makeup!!!! XDDD!!!
Oh, and what made me very very happy, was that I completely forgot that the price on Buff'd cosmetics is all in candian dollars, which at the end when i was checking out the order, I was happy to see that the US dollars was less money :D haha exciting. I can't wait to try this out!
And since 5-10 days later, my skin should be much much clearer, I'll be able to put this foundation on a good test run in my just-hurricane-hit humid hot Houston city where I walk under the blazing sun at my university every day. That should be like the ultimate test of how well this foundation works haha. Then, of course, I will review this product for yall :)
God, I seriously seriously am hoping that this product will be it. Color match. Perfect coverage. Lasting all day. Easy to remove. all of that. I want it. Wish me luck!!!!
oh, and wish the delivery man some good luck too as he has to go through the debris-filled streets......XD
