Mini guide to Avon foundations!

Hello all,

Following on from my post about Avon eyeliners, I thought I'd do a mini post about some of the foundations available. I couldn't get my hands on every single one (sadface - but there are too many for my purse to handle) however I have three to show you today. Just for reference with regard to shades, I wear Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in shade 52 and all of the following are in shade 'Ivory'.

Side note - these are samples, not from foundation pumps so the swatches are MESSY - I did my best! :)

24K Gold Radiant Foundation

Pros: Fab for oily skin as dries to almost powder consistency / blendable / medium coverage / lasted 12 hrs
Cons: May be too drying for some skin types

Available in 6 shades here.

MagiX Cashmere Finish Foundation

Pros: Soft and smooth finish / light-medium coverage / cool tones (thumbs up for pale skins)
Cons: Only lasted around 6hrs

Available in 6 shades here.

Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation

Pros: Fab coverage / suitable for dry and oily / best skin colour match / blendable / SPF 15 / lasted 12 hrs
Cons: Matte finish (not drying, but not for those who like a sheen)

Available in 16 shades here.

Personally the winner for me was Ideal Flawless, which is pretty handy really considering they have 16 shades available - really good to see a decent choice for warmer skin tones!

As always, if there's anything you fancy seeing let me know.
Thanks for reading!
