3 Worst Foundations!

I've recently posted my 3 favourite foundations, so its only fair I share the foundations in my collection that have disappointed me. This doesn't mean the foundations are horrible/crap, it just means they haven't ticked my boxes.

L'Oreal True Match Minerals
This was purchased after my skin turned into an oil slick, and a mineral foundation seemed the most obvious choice. But sadly my skin doesn't seem to like this foundation, I recently forgot this and it caused my skin to freak out and I had a pimple my fiancée named Giganton. Not good. The colour choice is awful, the lightest shade is ridiculously dark, ivory is more or less NW20/NW25, ridiculous. Its also the messiest foundation ever, I shall stop now before I say much more.

Available here!

Chanel Perfection Lumiere
I know, a Chanel foundation, I must be mad. I'm not going to lie, I didn't even read a single review on this bad boy before I made the plunge, all it took to win me over was the sales woman popped it onto my jaw line and I bought it straight away. Silly, silly me. This foundation does everything I don't want, it oxidises on my skin within 10 minutes, it doesn't last very long at all and doesn't fade nicely, it goes patchy and looks like I have a skin infection on my combination skin. Horrid. So this shall sit on my dressing table and go no where near my skin.

Available here!

No7 Beautifully Matte
This foundation is lovely on oily skins, but my skin hates this with a passion. This foundation didn't do much except drink all the moisture out of my skin and made it dry, flaky and red. This is probably my fault as my skin isn't overly oily, more normal to combination, so I can't blame this foundation. Although this foundation oxidises which is a massive pet hate of mine.

What foundations are you not quite keen on? Have you tried any of these foundations?
