Foundation Comparison

Hey all ~~~
I haven't really been home for the past week. Been over at my aunty's house for a visit and It's Chinese New Years soon, so getting busy with family functions and stuff. Um.. this is off topic but I am Addicted, to this show called " The Big Bang Theory".. lol I consider my self a nerd too cuz I did Chemical Engineering and those quantum physics and maths and chemistry is not new to me.. LOL... When I was in 2nd yr Uni would love to transfer to Berkley's Uni In USA for a semester or two. hehe.. It's a funny show, I find it funny because I can so see how those nerd are acting the way they do. Cuz with the knowledge you have of physics/maths and chem you can see show much illogical things around you. Ok I will stop here and get on with the post
So I promised a foundation/bb cream comparison post. So I will do this in 2 posts, just incase it gets too WORDY..
Here's the bb cream and foundations I have.

Top Row is all bb creams: ( From left to right)
1. Missha M Vita bb cream
2. Missha M Perfect cover bb cream #21
3. Hanskin Magic bb cream
4. Skin79 Derma RX bb cream
5. Skin food Gingko bb cream #1
6. Skin food Aleo Sun bb cream #2

Here's a picture of these bb creams in the same order Left to right correspondingly.
Bottom Row (Left to right)
1. Christial Dior Forever Flawless liquid foundation #022 ( a bit pink toned)
2. Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC20
3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Light #2
4. Rimmel Lasting Finish Mineral wear #100
5. Chanel Tinte Innocence liquid foundation #020 Cameo

Here's a picture of the foundations in the same order from left to right.

In general, the bb creams has a more of a greyish tone and has more benfit for skin. I do realise that using missha M Perfect Cover bb cream over the winter gave me less pimples and a dramatic whitening of my skin. As for scar reduction, I think it does work but not entirely sure because I do scrub and removal of dead skin. and scars naturally fade over time. But I do have to say that I didn't like the Hanskin Magic bb cream, I have combination/oily skin and that is just Horrid, super oily after like 1 to 1.5 hours. had no coverage what so ever, it was like a pre makeup base kinda finish. Goes on EXTREMELY sheer, didn't like it. and Notice that it gave me pimples T___T I was kinda shocked So I stopped using it.
As for foundation, it I bought different tones for different times of the year and My skin colour kept on changing cuz of Bb cream during winter so My shades were like lighter and ligther. but now it's summer here, BBQing in 36 C degrees heat I don't want my face to look so white casted so I go for a more tanned darker shade of foundation to make me look sun healthy. The foundations have different textures and coverage. I will do a table for the next post to compare the different factors.
Stay Tuned~~~
that's all for today. hope it helps..

Dior No. 20 and 22 are both too pink, but I bought No. 21, Linen, a yellow-based colour, in San Francisco (that's in the Diorskin Forever). I found Diorsnow liquid foundation in No. 21 at San Francisco Duty Free, and I managed to find No. 21 again in Diorskin Nude at Boots.

I think you will really like No. 21, but you need to hunt for them.

I use Chanel foundations in No. 20, and they work well for me.

Good luck!
