SOMETIMES our search for something will lead to something else. By chance, we discover new things, ideas, faith, places and people. During my search for the almost extinct Revlon Pressed Power in Caramel (15) recently in Kuala Lumpur (yes, I'm back home for a bit), I discovered the Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation, also in Caramel (340). Now I've always used Laura Mercier Tinted Mosturiser for the most of my make-up wearing life and I've believed and still believe in the product. If you ask me, it has to be thee best tinted mosturiser in the world! I prefer it to any other of its kind or foundations. Although I don't wear foundations, I've had the chance to sample some of those in the market, both mid and high end. Perhaps, I don't need as much coverage as some others but I've never been a foundation fan. Most are too heavy, greasy or cakey. Not my cup of tea.
When I came across Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation, I tested it simply because it came in Caramel and two days later, I bought my very first foundation. The thick cream's consistency is like sour cream made from full cream and it spreads like the creamiest peanut butter on the skin. Use your fingers to spread the colour. The warmth of the tips makes blending a pleasure. It's light without drying up or oiling the skin too much. Perfect coverage for uneven skin tones and light markings. I love it because of its colour. This Caramel is one that literally disappears into the skin giving me the joyful right to owning my natural tone. It kind of has a silky matte finish although not entirely matte (I dislike a complete matte finish as it's really unnatural. Some glow and shine is great). With just a touch of blusher and mascara, I have an enviable, air-brushed look that survives sweaty workout sessions. Oh yeah. It also comes with a 24hr staying-power guarantee.
I'm not saying that it would work and feel the same for all but if you're looking for a foundation that does its job as promised in the ads AND cheap, you could give this a try. I only paid RM68 (US22) for a jar (23.7ml). I don't see myself using this on a daily basis but I suppose I'd use it every now and then during very sweaty events. It's also easily available at your local pharmacies (at this point, it's available. I hate it when companies discontinue really great products just when your life begins to depend on it, urgh!).
Have fun trying it!
