  1. I wanna buy all of these foundations now, esp. that Revlon Whipped one. My fave has always been the RCMA foundation.

  9. Elle! That is nice to know about Revlon Color Stay. I have been using a Maybelline dry wet foundation for years which I love, but have wondered about Revlon. Hmmmmmmm? We shall see.

  10. Thanks for rounding up! Revlon definitely has some great drugstore foundations. I also like Maybelline's DreamEffects mousse (or whatever its called lol). It feels super awesome and does great coverage.

  11. I love Lumi! It's my favorite drugstore foundation at the moment! The Revlon foundations both broke me out, but then again I have oily-acne prone skin. Great post!

  12. I wish I could say I have a favorite foundation but I have yet to find one I am completely satisfied with. Maybe I need to try some of the ones you suggest.

  13. Revlon is my favorite brand of drugstore cosmetics. I haven't found a product I don't like from them. I've never used their foundation. Maybe I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My oily/acne-prone skin actually does not do well with liquid foundation, so I use mineral/powder foundation instead. Right now I'm using one from Clinique because it has been the kindest to my skin : ) I have read a lot of other bloggers who really like the Revlon Colorstay line

    ReplyDelete
  15. I LOVE Loreal True Match! I have been using it for a few months now and am VERY happy!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hi Elle, i just did a foundation post myself, lol. The Revlon Colourstay bases are really great! thanks so much for stopping by!

  17. I love the revlon whipped.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm addicted to MAC, but I might have to try one of these :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the Revlon ones, but I've been wanting a lightweight one so I might try your suggestion with the neutrogena one! :)

  20. I've always wondered about the whipped foundation. It looks so light and not as thick as some foundations. Thanks for the recommendations!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I haven't tried any of these! And since I'm looking for a foundation, I'd probably go for one of those with SPF20 for summer.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm partial to the Bare Minerals pressed powder, or Dior Hydra tinted moisturizer (not a true foundation, but I love it). :)

  25. I actually just bought the L'Oreal True Match this weekend. I actually really love it. Will have to check out these others. Foundation is my weakest makeup knowledge.

  26. Great review of these foundations. I'm a Clinique fan, having used it for a few years so I haven't tried any of these.

  28. People say Revlon colorstay is very good, so I may try it! I think your post is very good! I actually like Chanel Lumiere and Dior Nude and Dior Forever. I think they are really good for the skin!

    ReplyDelete
  29. So I'm sure you've done a post on this, but favorite powders?

    ReplyDelete
  30. clinique works best for me (i also like the lancome teint something-or-other), but i am tempted to try less pricey options!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Good to know! I am always looking for affordable foundations... they can get so expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  32. i haven't really found a foundation that could qualify as my favorite just yet, but maybe it's one of these five? ;)

  33. I might have to pick up that Neutrogena one since it's light. I've been using (and loving) the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream, but I've been breaking out and I'm wondering if that may be the cause. Hmmm. You are too adorable in the videos!
