Clearing Out the 'Duds' | Foundations & Concealers

Every once in a while (more often than I'd really like to admit to myself) I take a look at my 'everyday makeup' (everything but my professional kit) and think things have got out of hand!
Even I think this is way too excessive for one person, who needs to have eight foundations on the go, along with five concealers. Which leads me on to clearing out the 'duds' that don't work for me or that something else is just plainly a lot better and it doesn't excite me. I don't obviously throw them out, I usually pass them off to family members.
I am going to rate all these products by preference, remember this is always personal!
My Favourite Foundations:
1.Mac Prolongwear, Mac Studio Studio fix & Mac Studio Sculpt ( I have them all different shades, for whatever colour I am, very tanned, tanned, uber pale.. girl problems, but I'm big into mixing them and foundations in general, very rarely is a shade correct!)
2.Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions, good coverage and great for oily skin.
My 'I probably won't buy these again but I still recommend them' Foundations:
1.Boujois Healthy Mix, glowy and nice coverage, absolutely no faults, have nearly finished this.
2. Illamasqua Rich Liquid, amazing coverage but I only use then when I'm partying so for the amount I'm able to use it, it's not worth the money, but there is literally no other foundation like it, if you want FLAWLESS skin.
3. Rimmel Wake me up, I think Rimmel has one of the best selection of 'drugstore' foundations, great coverage and a nice dewy formula!
4.Rimmel Match Perfection Cream Compact, a nice product, not an astounding one! Does what it's meant too and that's about all I can say.
The 'Duds'
1. The Maybelline fit me foundation is one of the worst formula's I've tried in a while, I honestly think it's more water then anything, no coverage, do not buy!
2. Nivea BB cream, something about the formula applies quite blotchy/hard to work with and as for the shade light, I would definitely call it medium plus.
My Favourite Concealers:
1.Collection 2000 lasting perfection, nothing will beat this and it seems everybody else agrees because shade 2 is always sold out.. annoying!
2.Collection 2000 Illuminating touch concealer, great coverage and it does exactly what it says for under the eyes, very brightening.
3.Mac Studio finish concealer, amazing for spots and blemishes!
The 'Dud'
1.Rimmel wake me up concealer, not great coverage and far to thin for a concealer, a small dot blends half way cross your face to almost nothing! Not worth the money.
Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed, please follow for me :) xoxox
