Review Revlon ColorStay Foundation & EOTD

Hey Ladies, sorry for my lack of posts!
Once again, I am not a huge fan of drugstore cosmetics. However, after hearing all of the raves about this foundation, I had to give it a shot myself.
I am pretty pleased :)
I put it on yesterday which was a hot sweaty day, and it stayed put (except for my nose; it sweated off immediately which is normal for me).
I like the finish as well, think MAC's Studio Fix Fluid, but a little less coverage and a little less of a matte-finish.
I bought the color 250 Fresh Beige which is the best color for those in between MAC NW20-NW25.










EOTD

What I used:

Majolica Majorca Palettes
MAC Gilded Ash (base)
JW Cosmetics Indellible Creme Shadow (underneath bottom lashes)
Revitalash Mascara (love this stuff- review coming soon)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Zero




see how red my right eye is?
I think it might be allergies- I really want to try those Rhoto Eye Drops!!
Which one is best for non-contact lense?

I like this foundation:)

I use it instead of MAC Studio Fix fluid only when I have to be away from home for a lot of hours. I also like that it doesn't transfer on my clothing.

Wow Whit!! The foundation blended into your skin really well!! On the swatch it looked dark, but then POOF!! Haha!! I'm glad that you found a Drugstore MU that works for you!!

Gorgeous EOTD as always! You must be sick of hearing me say that already! But it always is!!

OOohhhh you gonna get some CRACK DROPS?! I need to pick me up ones for contacts too. I think they make a Lychee one for contact wearers. The BF uses the reg ones, and he loves it!! I always tease L too though... "IT BURNS" LOL It really doesn't but I'm a dork!

lindah said...

go try the rhoto v ones from cvs/walmart! my favorite one is the one in the green bottle... it's amazing! :) gilded ash looks pretty! I should've bought one while it was out lol xD

I want to try the revlon foundie but not right now... lol I think I'll try my luck at cvs because if it doesn't work out you can return it! :D

This is the go-to foundation for my cosplay/photoshoot needs, it has awesome coverage and goes on like butter! I am usually a light makeup person though so I don't use it every day. Glad you love it too!
