REVIEW : Rant & Raves of Foundation I ever used!

10 comments
My first ever foundation that i bought is the Maybelline Clear smooth foundation. But i dont have it here because it was lke 5 years ago. ;p I still remember that time when i am very noob about make up, how to buy it, choose the color the amount need to be used etc etc. After years of learning from magazines and especially YOUTUBE! YouTube have been my fave site forever! YouTube is the place where i learn anything i desire... From makeup, Painting, and other things too! Enough of babbling the story of my makeup lets go on with the review on all the foundation i ever used!

Revlon ColorStay 30ml
SPF 6
Combination/Oily Skin
Where to get it in Malaysia?
Local Watsons / Guardian department store

How much is it?
RM48 - RM55
(depends on sale period)

What is the coverage?
Medium to Full

Pros :
Superb coverage! Matches skin tone perfectly! Does not leave face look like that weird fair looking skin. Long for hours especially you wear it with a good primer. Cover redness and spot nicely!

Cons :
Does not come with a pump resulting in over split product. Gets to cakey if you put too much on the face because the liquid is a bit thick. Price was ok, but not to affordable.

Best apply / Fave style to apply with : Stippling brush / finger
Overall Rating : 8/10
Would I repurchase it? : Yes but i will be my second best choice!

How much is it?
RM50 - RM55+
(depends on sale period)

What is the coverage?
Medium to Semi-Full

Pros :
Comes with a pump! Good coverage! Long lasting. Easy to apply with finger or preferred brush. Perfect!

Cons :
It is not a photo ready foundation. Face look too bright in a picture especially taken with a ordinary camera. Price was ok, but not to affordable. Tens to disappear in cold surrounding. Set it with Urban Decay All nighter Spray can fix this problem.

Best apply / Fave style to apply with : Finger / Foundation Brush / Flat Top Kabuki Brush
Overall Rating : 9/10
Would I repurchase it? : Absolutely!

Etude House Store

How much is it?
RM45 - RM66
(depends on sale)

What is the coverage?
Medium

Pros :
Its BB Cream! Come with a foundation brush. My face look dewy after wearing it. Apply powder / pressed foundation to make it look matte. Although the shade is not my skin color, but after a few minutes it will soak in my skin and does look natural

Cons :
Only have one shade. Not suitable for darker skin. At first its look so white, need to wait for a few minute for it to absorb in your skin. A product that does not come with a tube

Best apply / Fave style to apply with : 
Overall Rating : 7/10
Would I repurchase it? : Nope. I want to try other BB cream.
