Top Favorite High-End Foundations!

 1. Kat Von A Lock-it tattoo foundation

This foundation is said to be full-coverage, 24 hour wear, transferrer resistant, and a matte finish. All that is very true. This foundation is the most full coverage foundation i have ever used! it does wear for a long time, not sure about 24 hours but the longest i've had this on was 15 hours and it looked exactly the same as it was when i applied it! it has a matte finish, so PERFECT for oily girls, like me!
it does comes out thick, not watery at all. But you literally need one pump to cover your whole face, and have it look absolutely flawless!
It covers everything but doesn't look cakey at all! you could set this with a powder if you want, but honestly you don't even need to! because it dries to a matte finish and is transfer resistant! so perfect if you want full coverage and you on the go!
The pump is great and doesn't pump out to much product!
this is my all time favorite foundation ever! i will by until I'm old. haha

Price is $34.00. 
the only bad thing is that there is only 3-4 shades in store, because shes adding more coors but you can get it on sephora online with all the colors avabliabe!

2. Tarte Amazonian clay 12 hour full coverage foundation

This foundation claims to be 12 hour foundtion, full-coverage, oil-free, and has spf 15 sunscreen in it. 
This is very full coverage and the consistency is more of a mousse texture and is very lightweight! so its VERY easy to blend out and you only need very little to smooth over your face. This does stay on for 12 hours,without separating or looking gross. This foundation does not oxidize (which means once oxygem hits it hile on your face it will change color). 
Since it does have SPF in it, thats good so you don't have to put sunscreen on before hand. And if you don't wear sunscreen in the day, you should!

only down fall is that there is no pump, and if you squeeze to much out it really hard to get back into tube.

price is $38.00
16 shades to choose from.

3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

this foundation is claimed to be long-wearing, light-weight, and comfortable makeup. This is very long wearing and literally wont change or move on the face for a whole long day. it does have SPF 10, so thats good, but not good enough to give you all the protection you need. 
The consistency is liquidly and is very easy to blend into face. 
The only problem is that it does oxidize a little, so finding your shade is kinda hard. i would say go a little lighter then your skin tone!
also, there is no pump, so pouring it out is kind of a pain in the ass. 

Price is $37.00
31 shades to choose from.

4.Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet Plus

This foundation is claims to Hide imperfections, even out skintone, and mattifies with a non-oily, perfectly powdered finish. The result is flawless and lasts for hours. all of that is ssoo true! i love this stuff. it does cover really well, is very matte, and is water resistant! so you could wear just this to the beach without setting it and it will not come off in the water at all! so perfect for beach,river,water parks or even just everyday wear! i love how the consistency is really watery because you use only little to cover your whole face. and i honestly have has this for a year and I'm just running out:( but i will re purchase this because its an amazing  foundation with a great formula!
Prices is $36.00
16 shades to choose from

5. Clinique Continues Coverage Foundation 

This foundation claims to Lasting camouflage for every skin. Opaque makeup covers flaws, birthmarks, scars. Use as concealer or full-face makeup. Provides a physical sunblock (titanium dioxide)

this foundation is amazing, it will cover anything and everything with only a little dab! i love this stuff because it literally wont move on your face, no matter if you sweat, or get your face wet!
it has SPF 15 so it will protect you during the day. This will probably last me 2 years because you only need little to cover your face.

ONLY DOWNFALL is that there is only 4 shades! so very hard to get your skin tone excatly. mines in "Ivory Glow" and i just use a powder that matches me 
better and it looks fine!

Price is $24.00 (which so SUPER CHEAP compared to the other foundations, 
and this is for sure in my top 3!)
