New foundation routine

So every once and a while i like to change up my foundation routine. Usually it will be a few things here and there that will replace an old item, since i can't afford to be buying all new makeup every few months. This time I've gotten 3 new items to try out, revlon colorstay for oily/combination skin (i love the dry skin formulation but my skins been getting oiler..) palladio rice powder in translucent (which i haven't tried out yet), and hard candy baked bronzer in tiki.

The revlon colorstay has been my favorite foundation for a while now and it easily beats any high end foundation i've tried (and i've tried a lot of them...) And since my skins been getting a lot oiler i thought it would be a nice change to try out the one for oily skin. The big difference between the two formulations is that when holding the two foundations side by side in the same color (ivory) I found that the dry skin formulation was more pink, and the dry formulation was more neutral, which is something im always looking for. :) One downside to the drier formulation was that i had to blend it waaay more quickly, and it was of course more drier. Other then that, this foundation is something i would happily use on clients, i love it.

So far i've been loving the tiki bronzer, its very shimmery though and more like a MSF from mac. It's been giving my face a nice glow, but if you go overboard im sure you could easily look like a disco ball.. D: I love the color, and the packaging is pretty nice too. I've been wanting a MSF from mac for a long time, so im super happy to have this instead.


  1. I've heard a lot of great things about the Revlon Colorstay and it is always nice to find a great bronzer! Plus, I'm a sucker for packaging too! :)

  2. How pretty! me likes the color of the foundation :)

  3. That looks like the same as the foundation I've been using, but does that bottle have a pump lid? Mine does and it's SO annoying now that there's only 1/4 of the bottle left- stops working.

  4. nope, this one doesnt have a pump, it just pours out. :/ but maybe you have the photoready one, its like this one, but has a pump and lots of shimmers in it.

  5. I really need to try that Revlon foundation. Ive heard so many good things about it. The baked bronzer looks nice although I usually prefer a matte bronzer.

  6. Finding the right color foundation is so important! Using the wrong color could be devastating! Love the blog! Feel free to stop by mines. I would love for us to follow each other!
