Best Summer Foundation 2018 – BECCA Ultimate Coverage 24-Hour Foundation

BECCA Cosmetics has done some serious voodoo on this one. For summer 2018 this foundation is one that will withstand all your plans and outings and I’m sure you don’t plan on staying in doors.

I was on YouTube and NikkieTutuorials video caught my attention. What amazed me was the name of her vlog. Who wears makeup for 24 hours straight intentionally? That is crazy. I love my skin so if she is going to do it to hers then thanks. I don’t have to do it myself. Love you for doing that Nikkie. From what I saw, I cannot wait to try out this foundation. From what I saw Nikkie do this has some kinda voodoo in there. Check out her video below.

For all my ladies of color out there you will be verryyy happy to know there are more than enough shades for us to choose from. BECCA ensured they made most shades available cause we ladies of color are not having it lately.

NikkieTutorials tested the heck out of this foundation in the heat, in water in everything for 24 hours straight. She did not sleep.

Born This Way

If you know Jackie Jackie JackieJackieJackieJackieJackieJackieJackieJackieJackieJackieJackieJackieeeeeeeeee. Ok I had to do it.

If you know Jackie you know what time it is. REALNESS. Jackie makes sure she puts the real out there on all makeup especially for the lovely chocolate girls.

Beauty brands beware. Do it right or she’s coming for you and she will not spare words.

Since the release of Rihanna’s foundation line some brands have been shaking in their boots and some just don’t give a rats ass to give prospective clients the option to wear their foundations. (No names mentioned. You know who you are). Maybe they make enough profits on the lighter skin shades and they are content with that.  To the other labels that can make it possible please do cause we need some options too and are grateful. Jeffree Star I heard your comment about your line coming up. Looking forward to it.

She had them add an additional 9 shades which is currently available from and Anywhere outside the US is available in stores worldwide in August 2018.

Hidden Beauty – Most beautiful place on earth.

When you think of the most beautiful places in this world you think of Amalfi Coast in Italy or Lake Louise, Canada, Rainbow Mountains in China or one of my favorites, Santorini, Greece. But, this world has some hidden beauties, when you stand in it your imagination makes you think you are asleep or you died and went to heaven. Well St. Lucia is some heaven on earth.

To some the Caribbean may be played out because certain islands names such as Barbados and Jamaica have been abused from the beginning of time, but St. Lucia is one that has been getting major and deserved attention for the past few years. When thinking of destination weddings, festivals, conferences or just vacationing to escape life nothing beats paradise. That is exactly what St. Lucia is.

St. Lucia has been getting some rave reviews and the stars have been spreading the word among themselves. From hosting of The Bachelor in 2014 which was filmed at two of those locations Cap Maison Resort in the Hills of Cap Estate, Gros Islet St. Lucia and Jade Mountain Resort, in breathtaking Soufriere, St. Lucia.


Soufriere has been an attraction to many more stars such as Kim Kardashian-West and Mr and Mrs. Ludacris and others I wont mention in this article. Mr and Mrs. Christopher Brian Bridges were spotted at the famous Sulfur Bath where they did the therapeutic mud bath and soaked in the healing water.

Even the Kenya Moore made a point to formalize her nuptials on the island. Black Panther’s star Chadwick Boseman, Angela Bassesst and Angela Simmons have also been spotted recently in “little” St. Lucia. Or is it so little after all?

Who will be spotted next?

Covergirl Elixir

Presenting Covergirl’s Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation

Covergirl boasts “this foundation is healthy looking skin in a bottle which may be true. It is infused with Vitamins E, B3, B5 plus SPF 20 for correction, protection and perfection all in one. This full-coverage foundation makes skin glow with a healthy look, from the inside out.” That’s a lot in a foundation.

Lets get right into it. It’s available in 14 shades and the cost is between $10 – $15 depending on the drugstore you visit. The packaging is good and the pump is always a plus with a head that locks which makes it good for travelling.

With all that’s added in, this foundation has a lot to live up to. Let’s see if it does.

How does it apply and wear? 

This foundation is thick and creamy, and applies with a very dewy look but dries out just a tad bit so its best for dry to normal skin. If you like the dewy look, this foundation is definitely for you. Now my oily skin girls, this may have you looking a bit greasy if you are wearing it during the day when out and about. You will have to blot your face periodically. If you like a matte look this is definitely not for you. Once you set the powder it looks nice and glowy.

Application is smooth and easy and seems to apply even better with a beauty blender.

Covergirl claims this foundation is full coverage but …. ummmm it is not. It gives medium coverage which is good because it gives a “healthy looking” skin like they did say, so you do not have a cake face. If you do want you can build it up for more coverage. The Healthy Elixir is comparable maybe to Revlon ColorStay based on the texture. The cost is reasonable so wont hurt to add to your collection or give a try. You just may love it based on your skin type.

And that is the best description of Covergirl’s Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation  in its totality.

Covergirl you did good this time. Despite it having a slight sweet scent to it (constant sent on your face) all day:

  1. It blends well
  2. Wears well and stays in place
  3. Gives a healthy glowing look to the skin &
  4. It’s Moisturizing, Hydrating & protecting

For being all of that and still wearing well for extended periods of time and coming from a drugstore brand, I have to give it 2 thumbs up.

You Simply Extravagant Covergirl. I see you.
