Today I've got swatches of Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Makeup Liquid Foundation. I received a sample palette of 8 different shades in one of my subscription boxes.
I usually buy my foundation from high end stores such as Sephora because they will color-match me. Lack of ability to try out formula and shade has kept me from trying drugstore brand foundation, so this was a great opportunity to try it out.
Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Makeup has a tone correcting complex, titanium dioxide sunscreen, SPF 20, and claims 12 hour breathable coverage. It is available in 8 colors and retails for $15.99 for 1 fl oz, or 30 mL.
For reference, I wear Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in a 2.0, Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm in Light, and Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in Pink Porcelain 1.
I am Mexican, Polish, and Irish (aka a trio of ethnic jokes), and don't go outside too much. I used to tan, but now the Irish part is showing and I burn instead. So I'm pretty pale.
For simplicities sake, I have labeled the swatches with their numbers, but their names are as follows:
10- Classic Ivory
20- Natural Ivory
50- Soft Beige
60- Natural Beige
70- Fresh Beige
90- Warm Beige

My favorite part of this foundation was the sunscreen. I live in a sunny climate, so if I'm going to spend any time outside, I definitely need sun protection. An added bonus was that it didn't feel like a foundation with sunscreen in it.
I would recommend trying this sunscreen if you're looking for something lightweight, blendable, and easily accessible.
