Last couple of weeks, i finally gave in and bought a new foundation, and that is the Revlon Liquid Foundation, i only have one drugstore foundation, and it is also from Revlon, the Colorstay. i am very hesitant to buy this foundation because most reviews i watched (Youtube) says that they dont like it but still some like it, so i wonder if i would like it too. 

PHP 925.00 FOR 1FL.OZ / 30 ML; WATSONS
i like it because ....

1. oil free and fragrance free - (have you tried Mac Studio Fix Liquid Foundation?it smells plastic-kie that i wonder why MAC would let it smell like that,ow and even Revlon Colorstay too)

2. it comes with a pump, a decent and not cheap looking one - just my opinion. (Again,MAC Studio FIX liquid foundation does not come with a pump, so you need to buy that separately, same with my NARS Sheer Glow -- c'mon Mac and Nars) i hate it, because sometimes you cant control how much you can get, unlike if theres a pump,oh you know how it is already.

3. small amount goes a long way - i just need 1 pump for the whole face and neck area, for a light coverage.

4. light to medium coverage - but  also buildable, depends on how much coverage you need.

5. consistency - not thick at all, and not too liquidy. just fine.

6. spf 20 - a must

I just dont like it because....

1. a bit pricey for a drugstore brand. -i believe that it should be lower in price.

2. shiny looking face - maybe because of the shimmers in it, so you really have to set it with a powder.

3. coverage  - after an application, i can still see my flaws (blemishes etc.)

and also, i think Revlon should really train their MUA well , because in terms of color matching, i think they are lacking, i went to 2 Revlon Counters and they both said that im a shade Shell but thats too light --- way to light for me,(i almost looked like a vampire in that shade) then she said maybe im a Cool Beige shade, but i have a yellow undertone and according to this chart, Cool Beige is for those who are Pink undertone.

i got this chart from Fashionismycrush's blog.  it helped me in a way. i did get 004 NUDE,I AM  MAC NC30-NC35,with yellow undertone,  a bit light but with a little bronzer and im fine.

MY PERSONAL VERDICT - i like it but i dont love it, though not a bad product at all.  Nars sheer Glow is still my must have.

Buy this product again? i dont think so. i rather try (from) other brands.

This is just a personal opinion, if you have this  and you love this product then that's good.
TAKE NOTE ALSO that i have used this for like 4x, so im still observing how i look in picture if i wear this.

Have you tried this product? you like it?

so i went shopping again.
and i know, i should'nt
remember, project 10 pan?
i know, i know, and i feel so bad
but i just cant help it.

you know what they say,
once a Beauty junkie, always a beauty junkie -- and that is
been so busy with work for the past month, weeks
and i just need to reward myself for working so hard
and makeup would make me really happy (what an alibi?, ha ha ha)

PHOTOREADY LIQUID FOUNDATION IN 004 NUDE - been really intrigued with this foundation, honestly, Revlon colorstay is the only drugstore foundation that i've liking, but why not give this a try. so i bought it. some love it some dont. so we'll see.

SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK IN 131 GINGER ROSE - i dont know , but this swatch is very different, on my lips its like a nude lipstick. i cant wear my MAC MYTH lipstick, so when i tried this on, its my perfect nude lipstick.

SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK IN 225 ROSEWINE - been so mad, so dissappointed, so sad for not getting MAC VIVA GLAM CINDI,so im looking for a perfect dupe but i think this is not the one, though this is a lovely color that would instantly brighten up your face.

COLORSTAY EYELINER PENCIL IN BLACK - i saw lollipop26 video and she raved so much about this one, and i really trust her words, truly this is one of the best eyeliner i've tried. it stays where you put it.
