Run, don’t walk to your local Dollarama, because the best deal evah has hit Dollarama shelves. Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Your Skin Foundation, cream blushes, powder blushes, finishing powder and powder foundation can be found in the Dollarama cosmetic isle.
I have been jealously eyeing the reviews on Makeup Alley ever since this line had started making waves in the Beauty blogosphere. Last time I visited Florida I took a peek at Ulta, but decided that this foundation was a little out of my price range for a drugstore line. Imagine my surprise, that while picking up a few items in the Dollarama I spotted Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Your Skin Foundation, and here’s the best part, they were $2 each!
I hauled 2 blushes (Sunrise, a pretty peachy colour; and Fawn a cool plummy-brown colour), I also bought 2 liquid foundations Creamy Beige and True Beige. The colours that I could remember were, Creamy Beige, True Beige, Sandy Beige, Tawny Beige, warm Beige, Golden Beige, Mocha, and Mahogany (so no light skintones). They also had the Luminous Matte Pressed Powder in Deep, Translucent Loose powder in Deep, Natural Powder Blush in Dusk and Fawn, Sheerest Cream Blush in Sunrise and Sunset and 1 colour of the Ultra Smoothing Lip tint, but you might get lucky at your Dollarama and find more colours (I’m checking another Dollarama close to where I work tomorrow).
So? How do I like it? It’s pretty darn nice. The 2 colour of foundation that I chose (Truly beige and Creamy Beige) were not quite the right colours. I am about an NW20 right now and they were both a little too dark. The Truly Beige looked a bit too orangy on me. I’m probably Nude Beige, but alas there was no Nude Beige on the shelves, I’m def looking for that colour tomorow at another Dollarama. I looooveee that finish it looks very natural. While trying it out I pumped too much foundation out of the jar and decided to see how it looked if I used it all, still natural. The blushes were decnt quality, but I already have a bazillion blushes, so I could have probably done without them (but they were 2 dollars).
All in all these were a fantastic buy. Yay!
