If you’re anything like me, you’ve had countless attempts at foundations, the shades, types, benefits, whether it has just enough miracle unicorn dust to make your skin look passable and not like you’ve had a long night binge-watching Friends…
For me, the one that has stood out was the Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Combination/Oily. This was the first proper foundation I ever used as a young lass, well the first that ever matched perfectly.
My usual shade is Sand Beige which matches seamlessly when my skin is its normal pigment. When it turns a bit cooler and I stay inside more with a cup of tea and my Netflix account, my skin is a fraction too light for this shade and I have one in a shade lighter, Buff.
The application of this product is very smooth, never cakey, and makes even my wild combination skin look nice and evenly toned. I only need one pump at a time to get a good medium coverage, enough to cover blemishes and prominent freckles, but light enough to look like a second skin. You have to work fast, as when this foundation sets it stays, supposedly 24 hours long according to the packaging.
I’ve been using this foundation for 4 years, and it never does me wrong. One 30ml bottle normally lasts me about 6 months, and at $25 a pop it’s a total bargain.
If you’re looking for a foundation that does the job you want, without the hit to your bank account, give this little gem a try today!
