When I saw this new foundation advertised on TV I just had to have it! Over the past year or so I have only used the mineral foundations but found that it lacked coverage a little.
The reason I went to the powder to begin with was because I was getting tired of the caked on, or oily feeling of liquid foundations. Plus I knew how horrible it was to my skin. Another reason was that I always have a hard time finding my shade. I am very light and I usually pick shades that are too dark or too light for me, but after the foundation is opened, there is no turning back. I didn't want to waste any more money!
So one day I got a coupon for $2 off of the Revlon Custom Creations foundation and I decided to give it a try. The price actually wasn't as bad as I had expected. It ended up being around $10 (but they also had a buy 1 get 1 free offer so I got something else the same price for free...I love deals!). So anyway, they have a few to choose from and each bottle ranges from 5 different shades.. I found one that had my color range and decided to give it a try.
I dialed it over to where I thought my color was and it was that easy. One warning about this is that you should be careful when you press it down. A lot of foundation comes out, and a little of this goes a long way! So I tried it and I did feel an improvement from other foundations I had tried in the past. This one felt a lot lighter on my skin. It was still very different from the mineral I was used to but that is understandable. The coverage was a lot better too. It was very easy to blend in and it turned out to be the perfect shade for me.
It lasted a long time and didn't make my skin oily. Even when my face would touch something no makeup came off. I was pretty impressed.
Another big reason I wanted this makeup was because I know summer is coming up. I plan to be outside a lot so I may, eventually, get a tan. I didn't want to run out and buy a new foundation when I did. This one will do great for what ever shade I am.
I still use my mineral foundation if I am in a rush but I really recommend this foundation if you are looking for something with a little more coverage.
