I worked for Clinique and Borghese in my 20’s. During this time I would try many of the other cosmetic lines foundation. I would eventually stick with Laura Mercier foundation and powder for years. After starting FAVVES I would look for something more affordable for someone trying to start a company. I found L’ORÉAL True Match. For many years cosmetic companies would give you limited colors. Many would have a red or blue undertone. I have neutral skin so I was happy to find True Match. It is the perfect color at a great price and has SPF. And another important detail is that I can pick it up at most grocery stores and pharmacies. I still like the department store brands, but when you get a little older you think more about retirement or spending money on adventures. And I don’t think anyone has noticed my foundation has changed from when I worked in the department store. There are a couple of department brand cosmetics I continue to splurge on. You will notice those in other posts.
