Foundation Friday: Best Selling Foundations at Ulta…and my thoughts

Image via Google

I got this post idea from Taylor Wynn. She is one of my favorite YouTubers and you need to be watching her. You can see what I thought of the Sephora Best Sellers here.

There are almost 200 foundations available on the Ulta website. When you sort by “Best Sellers,” the field isn’t narrowed, just rearranged. When I did this post with Sephora foundations, I mentioned 34 foundations so I took the top 36 options from Ulta to share my thoughts on. There are a lot of overlaps between Ulta and Sephora and I didn’t want to repeat those products so they are excluded from this list. The current list is different and is probably different daily, but we’re going with this one.

I’ve reviewed a lot, tried a few with no formal review, and there are some on my “To Try” list.

Tried
MAC Studio Fix Powder, $31:: I like this one, but there are cheaper options that do the same thing
MAC Studio Fix Fluid, $31 :: Loved this when I had oily skin. I don’t think it would work as well for me now.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage, $39 :: Loved when I had oily, but it’s too matte for me now. Tarte shades lean yellow
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation, $39.50 :: Haven’t tried the matte version, but It Cosmetics doesn’t have shades that match me well. Original was too emollient for me.
