Foundations for Pale skin haul

It happened...The Boots 3 for 2 got me. I popped into Boots on my lunch break last week and of course walked out with a bag of products I hadn't gone in for.  This summer I'm going to be doing a series of posts on The Best & Worst Foundations for Pale Skin, so the 3 for 2 seemed a great place to start! 

Here's what I picked up:

Revlon match perfection, bourjois Healthy mix foundation, revlon colourstay foundation pale skin foundation

Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory. Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in 51 - Vanilla. Revlon Colourstay in 150 Buff.

Collection Lasting perfection concealer 1 pale skin

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - Shade 1

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - Translucent pressed powder pale skin

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - Translucent

Collection Sheer Loose Powder - Translucent pale skin loose powder

Collection Sheer Loose Powder - Translucent

If like me, you're planning on rocking your pale skin this summer and not hitting the bottle aka Fake Tan, then make sure you stay tuned for my series of Pale skin Foundation posts which are coming soon! 

I'm going to be putting foundations to the test and finding out which are the best and worst for Pale Skin tones. From BB creams and tinted moisturizers, right up to full coverage foundations, My Pale Skin will be swatching and testing so you can choose the best product for flawless summer skin!

Have you tried any of the products in this haul?? Let me know in the comments... xxx


  1. Really excited for this series! I'm always trying to find 'my' foundation and one thats perfect coverage and pale enough! I'm using Rimmel match perfection at the mo and although I like it, I think it's a little too dark for me, as usual! So I can't wait to see what you think about them all :D xxx

  3. Not sure where my comment has gone - so sorry if this is repeated! I am really looking forward to your series as I have very pale skin, impossible to get an exact match! I would love a BB or CC cream but I think that's going to be impossible! x

  4. I'm so glad that I'm already subscribed to you - but if I wasn't I would be now - because I have such foundation issues! Will be watching for the series!

  5. Im really excited for this series you're doing! It can be SO difficult to find a good base for pale skin! I never tan either so i need a good base for the warmer months! I hope you find some gems! I can't wait to see your posts come up on my feed!

    I've recently added a poll to my sidebar to see what kind of posts and videos my followers would like to see, If you have a second, I'd love it if you could go and vote so I can focus on the posts that are the most popular! :)

  7. I'm currently using the Bourjois Healthy Mix, I'm loving it at the moment! x

  8. I've not tried any of these foundations yet, I'm super pale too so I'm looking forward to your your posts! I'm currently loving a super cheap foundation from W7, it matches my skin so well :)
    I love the Collection Loose Powder, absolutely godsend for me!
    I've popped over from the #bbloggers chat last night :)
