Being a total HE snob, I normally steer clear of d/s cosmetic shelves. Thanks to MUA, I am finally finding the treasures! Seriously, this Revlon Colorstay beats any liquid foundation I have ever tried at 1/3 the price, in terms of coverage, staying power, and skin matches. There are so many shades, it's like a wonderland. I've discovered that I am NC40 and Rich Tan, and I apply it with my flat top from EDM for flawless coverage. One lippie off because I'd rather it come with a pump, 9/10 times I get too much on. Here's a chart of MAC colors vs. Revlon colors that I've found (didn't make) really helped me in making my choice!
Revlon Colorstay with Softflex vs. MAC SFF: Ivory: NW 15 lightest of the bunch Buff: NC20 best match for fair NCs Sand Beige: NC20-25 with somewhat neutral undertones Nude: NC25 with peachy undertones, definitely not for pinks or true golden Natural Beige: NW20 tends to run pink Medium Beige: NC27 between Sand Beige and Golden Beige Fresh Beige: NW25 with pinky undertones Golden Beige: NC30 with truest yellow/olive undertones Warm Golden: NW30/NC30 with somewhat neutral undertones True Beige: NW30 with pinky undertones (for Fresh Beige in summer) Natural Tan: NC40/NC42 more neutral than golden caramel Early Tan: NW35 with somewhat peach undertones Rich Tan: NC 40/42 with yellowish undertones Golden Caramel: NC40/NC42 more golden than natural tan Toast: NW43/NC45 with neutral undertones Rich Ginger: NW45 very peachy-pink Caramel: NC45 seems to run true to color Cappucino: NC50 slightly more peach than Caramel Mahogany: NW50/NC55 the darkest of NWs but not extremely peachy Mocha: NW55 seems to be very cool toned, almost grey undertone
