    I know you're a big NYX fan, these were surprisingly good. I'm not quite as skilled using loose 'pigment' colours yet but I actually love how easily they travel. These things are tiny but still contain plenty of product. I'm hoping to pick up a few more at IMATS this year.

    Hello, I loved this review. However I had a question I know you've done a review on Maybelline fit me foundation too, so between the L'oreal Lumi and Maybelline Fit Meme, which is a better foundation or which do you prefer? Also what shade are you with l'oreal lumi? (sorry not to sound creepy but I am a similar skin tone to you and other concealers/foundations you've mentioned all the colors have matched perfectly, and I religiously go by the products you recommend since you really have great information :)Many Thanks, Maida (a fellow Canadian expat.)

    Hello Maida!I'd say that two have slightly different finishes and consistencies, with the FIT ME being more of a gel-cream and a “moist” look to the skin and the LUMI having a pearl type of sheen. It's hard to say which one is favourite in absolute terms but the LUMI does match me a bit better in colouring and feels slightly lighter on the skin so I suppose I would choose the L'oreal.My shade in the LUMI is labeled as “Porcelain – Light Ivory” (W1-2). If you ever need any other of my base matches for reference, I try to list all the brands in the MY STATS tab of my blog:: this helped!
