Revlon ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

Monday, September 17th, 2012

When Halle Berry is modeling a product , it’s hard to resist trying it. We tried Revlon’s brand new foundation, ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup. This is unique to the regular ColorStay because it balances your skin all day so your face won’t look too oily or dry. We loved the formula and found that it kept to its promise of lasting all day (we found we didn’t need to use powder with this). What was unexpected is that the coverage is not very thick. We assumed because of the mousse texture that it would go on full, but you would need to put on a few layers to get to full coverage. If you’re looking for a medium coverage with a light feel, you’ll love this foundation. However, if you’re really looking to conceal, then we recommend you try their PhotoReady Foundation.

Prescriptives Virtual Matte Oil-Control Makeup SPF 15

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

When you have oily skin, the oil tends to break down your makeup, and then over time it looks progressively more ridiculous. We tried Prescriptives Virtual Matte Oil-Control Makeup since Prescriptives has a reputation for being the go to brand for foundation. Unfortunately, Prescriptives is now only available online. So you might be thinking, well how would I get the right foundation? They have a shade finder online so you can select the right shade. However, we found this system to be flawed, particularly since the result is 3 shade recommendations. Your better bet is to do an online chat with one of the beauty experts who will only ask you a couple of questions. But our strategy was to not only give them a couple of celebrities that shared our skin color, but also go on our social media website and give them the image link to our pictures. By doing this we got the perfect shade in the mail! This makeup promises to not only reduce shine but also stop oil production over time. It actually does work! This is a thicker foundation that gives you medium to full coverage, so you natural gals probably won’t like it. The finish isn’t overly matte though, so at least you have a more natural look if not feel. The only drawback with this foundation is that it has salicylic acid, which can be irritating to those with sensitive skin when used on a daily basis. Virtual Matte Oil-Control Makeup costs $35 and shipping is free, but you also get free samples! We got a phenomenal two shade eyeliner and a generously trial sized day moisturizer, so the department store pricing didn’t have as much of a sting. This didn’t have the staying power as one of our favorite foundations, Estee Lauder Double Wear, but at the same time it wasn’t as drying. In sum, this is a great foundation but you need to do some extra work to make sure you select the correct shade.

L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

If you like Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse foundation, then you’ll also like L’Oreal’s Magic Smooth Souffle. Similar in texture, it gives the same full coverage. Our favorite part about this makeup is that it makes your skin look flawless, but it actually feels light on the skin. And since this foundation has a great matte finish, you don’t have to worry about using a powder to set it. If you like a more natural coverage, then this foundation isn’t for you. For something lighter, try their True Match Super Blendable Makeup. It’s one of our favorites and you can start out light and build coverage to your taste.

Iman Cream to Powder Foundation

Monday, April 12th, 2010

It is often hard to find full coverage foundation or powder in darker shades. But the Iman Cosmetics Cream to Powder Foundation and Second to None Semi-Loose Powder are high in quality AND colors to choose from. The Cream to Powder Foundation gives you full coverage, and is excellent for hiding dark spots. The Powder is both mineral and blended with corn silk and silk powder to combat oil. We loved that at the end of the day our oily T-Zone was still kept in check. However, we were most impressed with how the powder is dispensed. With a twist, you get a fresh amount of powder. And this way it’s easier to control how much you load on your brush. Both of these products can be used alone, but if you want a very ‘made-up’ look, we suggest using the foundation and then doing a light dusting of the Powder.
Tip: If you have very oily skin, look for Kaolin when shopping for face masks. Kaolin is a natural clay from Mount Kaolin in China that has been used for many years to draw out impurities and oil from the skin.
