ok so i am a HUGE fan of LA Colors Makeup and this isnt the best they have to offer. It seems like they tried but not hard enough, but granted, they did give up something i guess. =PRICE/AVAILABILITY= The LA Colors Liquid Makeup can be found in most Dollar Tree stores as well as some Dollar General & Family Dollar Stores. I have seen it available online on some sites. I def suggests not ordering from cherryculture since they often triple the price, if not more, which i think is absurd. So if you can find this in stores, def do so since you will only pay $1-$1.50. which is a fair price, i think! =SHADE/FORMULA/PERFORMANCE= Now since i have tried in the different shades, i have to say almost all of them are def on the warm tone side, more on the orange toned. So being a very pale cool tone complexion, this stuff does not match me at all. its way too dark no matter what shade i have purchased but also, my stores dont carry many shades. The formula is not runny but not super thick either, i do like the consistency since its easy to blend into the skin whether its w/ a brush, sponge or fingers. I think a damp sponge would work best w/ this since it has more of a light coverage, almost like a tinted moisturizer. This will cover some dark spots or blemishes but not completely. Concealer will def need to be used. I think this is great for those looking to even out the skin. And if you can find a shade that matches, great! I find the staying power will depend on your skin as well. If you have oily skin, this may break down or fade w/in a few hours since its a lighter formula. If you have more normal to dry skin, this may stay on a tad longer. Primer will also help w/ staying power. I dont think its great but its not horrible, ive tried far worse from more expensive brands. But since i have bought two & they dont match me at all, this will make a great fndt to use in a homemade eye primer recipe. or any diy makeup recipes. Thats how i have used up some of mine- i may just dump the fndt into something & use the tube for my used foundations. =PACKAGING= I actually enjoy the packaging on this foundation. Its a thicker plastic tubing thats orange in color w/ black logo/labeling. It comes in a cardboard sleeve at first. What makes this great is IT COMES WITH A PUMP! yes a $1 foundation can have one but one that cost 10x as much cannot. its crazy. so i may use this for my other foundations that dont have a pump. The pump is easy to use & allows some control over what comes out. i havent had any problems with this so far! Overall, this isnt a foundation for me mainly bc of the color range. Its far too warm for my skin but if it did match, i would see myself using it more often but i have recently feel in love w/ another $1 foundation from the Dollar Tree- the Donna Michelle Foundation in shade Light- its my go to day foundation since its more of a gel like tinted moisturizer & its more on the cool side. it blends in to my skin & evens it out. Def have to use concealer but i am loving that one way better!
