The Revlon Colorstay Foundation

Two years ago, on a London trip, I picked up the Revlon Colorstay Foundation. I knew that it was a popular drugstore foundation, but I never thought it would be this good.
I have always struggled with finding a good foundation. I like a full coverage foundation that looks natural, doesn't melt of my face throughout the day and is the right colour match. Especially that last criteria is very hard, because even the lightest of drugstore foundations look too dark and orange on me.

This on the other hand is perfect. It gives a medium to full coverage and the shade 150 buff is a perfect match to my skin. It has a yellow undertone which I like a lot too, since I feel that it cancels out the redness in my skin and it stays on all day. My T-zone gets a bit shiny though, but with a bit of powder you won’t see any of that. It is a bit weird though, because this is made for people with normal/dry skin and I prefer this formula way more than the combination/oily skin formula. I have tried it a couple of times, but I don't really like the undertones and it looks very cakey when you apply it.
Now I usually apply two layers and it gives the most flawless finish. Sometimes, if I am in a glowy mood, I mix it with the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and that looks so great too! Especially since the Wake Me Up Foundation is way too dark for me to use it on its own.

Every time I go to London I pick up at least two of these Revlon foundations – I can’t get them here *sad face* - and I am planning to do that in January too, because I will be going back in less than a month *jumps up and down*.
I’ve also tried some Revlon Matte Lip Balms which were great too, so I might pick up a few more Revlon products whilst I am there.

What Revlon products do you love?
