I think if you have the right foundation, your makeup looks great every time. I have been using Revlon Colorstay forever, but I decided to stray.
Revlon PhotoReady and Maybelline 24 Hr. Super Stay are the newest ones I've tried. They are very different, except that they are both long wearing and great drugstore foundations
Revlon PhotoReady- $13.99 This foundation is supposed to be our answer to HD drugstore foundation.
I think it's better than MUFE HD, goes on better
Easy to blend
Med- full coverage without looking caked on
Great pump(I wonder if I could reuse the bottle?)
Great for oily skin/No breakouts
Not good for pictures, gives a white cast on the face
Glitter in the foundation can be seen, especially in light/sunlight
Glitter is still visible if you don't clean skin good
Hard to shake the foundation, it separates(look at picture)
Maybelline 24hr. Super Stay- $10.99 This foundation promises 24 Hr. no transfer, flexible, heat & sweat resistant. Made for all skin types
Comparable to Nars Sheer Glow
Feels like you have a built in primer
Good color choices
Makes the skin look light/luminous
Great for dry skin
If you have oily skin this will break you out/feels greasy
Bottle pours fast/waisting product
Does not last more than 6 hours
Not sweat or heat resistant
Foundation doesn't sink into the skin easily
The reason I reviewed these together is because they are both really good, but the complete opposites.
I love the Maybelline Super Stay better because it makes my skin look great. The problem is that I have oily skin and a super oily T-zone and it broke me out. I think it has a primer built in making it feel greasy. The PhotoReady is matte, long lasting, and stays put on the T-zone, but the glitter drives me nuts. It's not chunky, but it's there.
When I'm going out and want to look glowing, but take nice pictures, I use the Maybelline Super Fit. For everyday it's the PhotoReady or Colorstay.
