Foundation update, MLBB, setting powder.

Hello Everyone!

I know I haven't posted for 2 years, but I will do my best to come on here more often.

As you may or may not have known,I was incorrectly told I had yellow undertones; I am actually olive...Light olive to be exact.

Most people think that if you are olive you are automatically Mediterranean and Medium-dark. That's not the case. You can olive an olive undertones and be light, medium, dark and everything in between. Olive is the UNDERTONE, NOT your SKINTONE.

I still religiously use MAC StudioFIX Powder Foundation in C30. That is my all time favorite and best match. They do NOT have C30 in a liquid, which stinks. I have tried their C4.5, C4 and they are pink and too dark. We will see. I have heard many good things about BECCA Cosmetics but not sure if their shade range is wide enough and Olive friendly enough :)

I have also bought EX1 Cosmetics Liquid foundation in 200. Its a good match, but its not as much coverage (medium, buildable) and I feel like it just sits on my skin and can easily come off. Maybe that is my perception, I dont know.

On a side note, these products below are sooo good, I have to mention them.



  • Ulta Lipstick in Sugar & Spice 229 - $8, but usually its on sale for 50% off. I LOOOOOVE this lipstick. Its the perfect MLBB shade. Has good staying power, creamy formula.


  • Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color in  Nude Nuance - $5.50. Another really good MLBB lipstick. Has good staying power. Very pigmented, matte, formula.
  • Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder - $3.99. This powder is my HG. It works so well, keeps my makeup on and my face matte for hours. Very good quality. Its basically your HD powder, but in a compact so its not messy! I loooove this.
