Liquid -Revlon - New Complexion Oil Control Makeup

this is my honest opinion and i absolutely hate this product. i saw it in the shops one day and thought id try it but i think its awful. didnt control oil and broke me out. it does glide over the skin nicely but feels like your rubbing oil on your face. it doesnt dry to a matte finish it stays kind of oily. and it doesnt cover. i now just use tinted moisturizers because they provide me with enough coverage and theyre very light. this foundation supposedly offers light to medium coverage. when i put it on it didnt cover anything and makes my skin look worse. if it works for you then great but there are much better foundations out there. photo ready is a great one by revlon but they really made a mistake with this one. oh and packaging is unhygienic and too much always spills out.
Loose Powders -Maybelline - Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder

I've actually repurchased this product a bunch of times. I'm not sure what keeps bringing me back to it but I really like it. I do like to stick to make up that I have used before so that's probably why and because it's really cheap. I use the lightest one in this and I just apply it with a flat sponge (not the one it comes with - obviously, that's more of a puff) but it gives good coverage, the colour matches my skin tone well. It is more yellow based but that seems to work for me. It is matte when you apply it and it does keep my skin shine free for hours. Of course like any product my skin eventually does get shiny but I don't bother to reapply because I'm lazy. It doesn't break me out also. It's a powder that really matches my skin tone. I'm fair skinned and it's always hard to find a match but I feel this is perfect. I haven't tried high end powders either but I really like this one and don't see the point in spending a lot of money when you can get this cheap one that does the trick. I have nothing bad to say about this and I will continue to repurchase :)

I usually always read reviews about products before I buy them to keep from wasting money on products that don't work. I came on here and actually read bad reviews about this product but still thought that I'd give it a go and I'm glad I did. A lot of people have said that it settles into lines and wrinkles and cakes which doesn't happen to me. I have used it with a crap foundation though and it has caked and what not but when I use it over my MAC studio fix fluid foundation it actually looks quite nice. It covers quite well and I've even used it on problematic areas and it hasn't broken me out. The only issue I have with it is the applicator because it's unhygienic. I've had it for awhile now and it's the best concealer I've used so far. In saying that I haven't tried high end ones but for a drug store product it does what it's supposed to and I will be repurchasing.
