    My holy grail drugstore foundation is actually the Revlon colorstay foundation for oily/combo skin! It’s actually the only foundation I ever use. I’ve been trying so hard to find a high end foundation that I love and that works for me and I just can’t find anything that I love.

    Yes on the no 7! They recent changes the package. I have super dry skin due to eczema and I searched the whole net for reviews on this and omg it's the best thing I've ever purchased. It's not super dewy and listen, when I say I never found a primer that worked for me believe me. Everything I've tried always made foundation settle into my wrinkles or make my dry patches stand out. I took a risk on the no 7 primer and WOW!!! It's like a moisturizer. And yes, I've tried high end primers. This is the only one that works for me. So excited to see someone talk about it bc I couldn't find anything on TVclip about it. Going to try their skin care line too

    I have a question through. Just bought the physicians formula foundation, and it smells really weird, like a lot. But it was even sealed, so it couldnt have been opened. Does yours smell too, or did i get a bad one?

    In the U.K., the Maybelline matte and poreless comes in a squeeze tube! It's my favourite every-day foundation and I love mixing it into other foundations. I also I have oily acne prone skin so it's cool to see Kat recommend it for people with dry skin.

    I’ll always go back to Revlon Colorstay. It’s just so reliable for me. I’ve been wearing it off and on since like 10th grade. It’s also one of the few foundation lines I like that also has a shade light enough for me. I would be devastated if they ever discontinued it.

    I have a trick to blend the colorpop foundation stick. if u use hot/warm water to wet ur beauty blender, it will be a lot easy to blend out. i aslo really really like the colorpop foundation stick cuz it is not messy and kinda give u a true skin natural look.

    this video helped me so much!! I'm one of those crazies that will spend an insane amount on high end foundation when drugstore foundation are just as good if not dupes for high end foundations already. definitely going to try some of these out the fit me I have and is amazing as well as the revlon color stay which is also amazing. I don't like a lot of coverage so its hard to find a glowy minimal coverage foundation these days. I am dying to try the flower beauty idk where I have been maybe under a rock but I did not know that was drew Barrymores brand and I am so excited to try her foundation!

    So far the only foundation I can find that sits perfectly on my skin and works no matter what with anything is the Milani conceal and perfect foundation. They also need to expand their shade range because I can’t find a color for me to even mix during winter months that isn’t too pink.
