Fall is not only the time to try the new warmer shades of eye color or deeper shade of lipstick, it seems to be the time that many fab cosmetic companies are releasing new foundations.
I have received a few great ones for review. They have mostly been liquid or cream — since summer is over it is time for more coverage and these products do provide them. Try a new one today!
If you love liquid foundation, try:
