    I’ve tried Tara foundation and it was okay, just that I didn’t like the coverage I’ll really love to try the H&E foundation but I’m scared i might end up not buying my exact shade since its an online store 😔

      Hey dear.. Which of the tara did you get.. The one in this post or the medium coverage?? For the hegai and esther.. Havent tried the foundation yet, but i have the loose powder and its ‘ahmazing’

      They have a physical store tho around ojudu berger i guess, if you live in lagos. Nigeria.. And for foundation matching, i think its easier if you know your shade in marykay… You can easily find out your shade in hegai and esther… I hope you found this helpful.. Or you could scout their instgram handle for the matching shade for marykay…
      Thanks for stopping by darling💋💋💋

    Great post, comes in handy for me.
    I’ve used the BH HD foundation and the shade range sucks.
    I’ve used the Mary Kay too (back then) and I think I still haven’t discovered my exact shade.
    I currently use the Classic concealing foundation and it’s quite great, looking for a replacement though.
    I’d love to try the H&E foundation, I’d google their store in Berger since it’s close to me.

        Lol you should close your eyes and try Classic, maybe their liquid lipstick will win you over.
        My next product from the brand is their contour kit then I hands off (hopefully).


    • thebudgetbella says:

      Hehehehehhehehe.. About the Milani… Different Strokes for different folks.. And yes Ooo, these days I look at marykay timewise with one wicked side eye like that, “like how did you get this expensive nau”

      Classic!!!!! *sighs* one brand I am scared of owning any product from them despite the fact I have seen live demo of them…
      Thank you so much for stopping by 😘 😘 highly appreciated
