I decided to try a new series on the blog! Called This or That, its a series comparing certain similar makeup products and which ones are better. I feel like this is something we all do! We want the best bang for our buck, while having a great product.
This or That?
7 Beautifully Matte Foundation vs. Covergirl Aquasmooth Foundation
No7 Matte Foundation can be purchased for $14, while Covergirl Aquasmooth Foundation can be found for $8.
Both of these products have pros and cons. No7 goes on so smooth, and I love the container. It also lasts a really long time. The bad thing, is that I feel like by the end of the day my face is still really oily even though this is a matte formula.
Aquasmooth does much better with the oily skin - I don't feel greasy at all on my face by the end of the day, and its half the cost. But I hate the packaging. The case is too big. When you buy it there is no way to open it and actually see the color, and it obviously isn't going to last long. This is supposed to be a solid/powder makeup that transforms to liquid when applied. It just seems like any other liquid foundation for the most part to me.
Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion vs. NYX Eyeshadow Primer
UD Primer Potion can't be found at a drugstore, and will set you back $24. NYX Eye Primer can be found almost anywhere for $7.
Let's face it - Urban Decay products are amazing!! But there is no way I can afford to have all their makeup. I love the formula of UD potion, and it goes on easy. And it totally works. The only negative is the cost, and the small container.
NYX works just as well for me. I was shocked at how close of a race this was for these products. I like the container of the NYX better, and it works just as well. Not only that, but it's less than half the cost and for a larger amount.
Over all, given the choice I would choose the No7 foundation and the NYX Eye Primer. Have you used these products? What was your opinion?
