I've been using double wear for an age but got to a point where £30(ish) for an everyday foundation was a bit much, or a lot much. Plus it's thick and makes your skin feel like it's drowning a bit, even if it is a miracle worker.
So a search for a "drugstore" cheap everyday foundation began and Revlon Colorstay without the U entered my life, and by search I just asked on twitter and read some reviews. It was this particular review that swayed it for me and I parted with £12.99 in boots before heading on my merry way to scarf down the meal deal I also purchased (the vegetarian spicy bean wrap is a must).
And the result? It was a mighty fine wrap. I jest. I like it. It's not too heavy but has a relatively long amount of wear. As in I put this on at around 7:30am and it's still there at 4pm. I realise my "before" picture is pretty horrendous but it does kind of show the amount of coverage you'll get from it and it did a good job of toning down freckles/redness. It's not the cheapest of foundations and doesn't come with a pump or any sort of emptying out device, there's also has a slightly odd shade range on offer in that most of them are yellow toned. Although this does seem to be the case with a lot of highstreet foundations nowadays.
Have you ever tried colorstay? What did you think?
