Absolutely in love with this foundation!!! I put it on at 7.30am and it looked flawless when I got home from work at 6.30pm. I would usually be a shiny oily mess by 1pm so I was pleasantly surprised. The coverage is perfect, I had no need for a powder on top and it almost looks like second skin. The consistency is really nice and I just put it on with my fingers. I am not a fan of the normal Revlon Colorstay due to it's strong smell and cakeyness, but this foundation is absolutely amazing! It doesn't feel or look like a mask and has no strong smell. Only drawback is that I'll have to purchase from eBay as Revlon is overpriced in Australia ($36). All in all I'm very pleased with this foundation and will definitely be repurchasing!!!
I stumbled on this foundation after noticing my hairdressers flawless skin the other day. Naturally I located a stockist and bought it in the 'OB3' shade that day. I am absolutely IN LOVE with this foundation! It is definitely not cakey if applied properly. I tend to swipe the stick on my t-zone and cheeks and blend it in. It looks really natural and stays that way all day. It needs to be sealed with a powder though - I have been using the Australis Ready Set Go translucent powder which works great. I also love that it comes in the stick packaging, it's so easy and convenient to apply and to take with you. I've been using it for about a week and am yet to even make a dint in the stick, so I can see it lasting forever! This is the first foundation I am actually excited about! Providing it is sealed with a powder, it stays perfect all day (even after a 2 hour workout at the gym) and gives a dewy flawless coverage. HG for sure <3
I am a fan of Inglot's Cream foundation so I thought I'd try this one. It was a complete disaster. My face went bright red and felt like it was on fine. I took it back to Inglot and was told by the sales assistant that this foundation has had quite a few people come back due to reactions to the silicone in it. Definitely one to stay away from for those sensitive to silicones.
I find Mac's StudioFix to be better than drugstore foundations in general. I am an NC42 but find the color a tad too yellowish so I like to dilute the foundation with L'Oreal's Infallible. I bought the pump for $10 so the packaging isn't really a problem for me. This foundation has decent oil control and tends to be quite long wearing. I find it to be a tad too cakey however and it's hardly a natural look - particularly as a day foundation. I find that I stay with the product but am always on the look out for something better. I have recently purchased the MAC Pro Longwear foundation but accidentally got the NW35 which is way off my natural color. The consistency seems to be much better though (after much dilution with Infallible) in the sense of cakeyness so I'm hoping for a HG upon purchasing the right color. I like StudioFix more than any drugstore foundations (although I do love L'Oreal), however it's certainly not the ideal foundation.
This is one of the top drugstore mascaras in my opinion. It keeps the lashes separated while giving them a nice thickness and length. I've had problems with smudging in the past and I am happy to report that this mascara doesn't budge. I tend to use the brush with the 2000 calories formula also. For $10 on sale it definitely does the job.
