Foundations - REVLON - ColorStay Full Cover Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Revlon Colorstay Whipped was my HG for years. I'd been scared out of my wits when I'd heard it was being "repackaged". Though they say it's the same thing under different name and new packaging, we all know that it might not necessarily be the same thing. I just dreaded the whole hullabaloo involved in looking for a new HG.

I'm happy to report that …

Foundations - wet n wild - Photo Focus Foundation

Smells like paint and applies like paint. If you think that's good, think of a wall with pockmarks then paint it. From far away you can't see the pockmarks (i.e. my face) but up close it's horrible. Forget about building up the foundation because it goes into cake city after the first layer. Goodbye.

Feb/09/2017

The top complaints for this products are: stinging, itching, cystic acnes and flaking dry skin. The first three thankfully didn't happen to me but the fourth one did. Tried it several times with differing quantity and time, but 5 minutes of thinly applied mask still produced peelings of the ugly sort, so I conclude that this isn't for me. For gauging purposes, let it be noted that my …Read more

Had I read these reviews before my impulse purchase I might not had bought this at all. The most frequent complaints are: crease (I have flaky skin at certain spots), slip easily (very oily here), sink into lines (hanging to my 'youth') . These are the words I am scared of.

However this is truly an example of Your Mileage May Vary when it comes to cosmetics. There is no way …

Finally: HG!! Oily, acne prone, dehydrated, sensitive, tend-to-flake skin here. NC15-20, Buff.

Concealers - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer

Contrary to most opinions, I find this to crease, flake and possess minimum coverage. At the end of the day I just look older and tired. I've tried my best to make it work but alas it's not for me though in general I love the Double Wear line. My tube is finishing soon, so this is not a review based on several attempts.

I'm acne prone, allergy prone and very oily.
A week of using this turned my skin into whitehead city with cracks of dryness here and there. It's the first time a cleanser dried up my skin. I'm still amazed.

I have super oily, acne-prone, clog-prone, sensitive and very flaky skin. I think the flakes come from my anti aging skincare (retinol, peptides etc) and acne medication (BP, AHA/BHA).

Do you know how annoying it is to have flaky skin? No foundation looks good after a few hours and I'm so tired finding ways to keep my face smooth. I've tried oil cleansing, microfiber cloths …

Nov/08/2014

If you want a natural look or expect this to be a higher coverage foundation with all the characteristics of Healthy Mix / Radiance Reveal, turn your head and find something else. This is a very thick, very matte foundation with great pigmentation that will give you a made up look. Needless to say it'll also flatten your complexion so you need to take out your arsenal of blush, bronzer …Read more

Sep/20/2014

Acne prone, oily, sensitive & tend-to-flake skin here.

In a nutshell this is an almost HG:
1. Sophisticated finish when used with a wet sponge. Dry brushes and fingers just create a flaky mess on my skin.
2. Excellent colour selection. NC15-20, 1N2 Ecru.
3. Wonderful oil control although it's not infallible despite topping off with powder. My oils …
