    I hated it. It had a sort of greasy yet drying effect on my skin. I LOVE their colorstay for oily skin, though. If you want to go revlon, do colorstay liquid, the original stuff. Stipple it on with a dry latex sponge and you will look perfect. Most of revlon's newer foundations do suck quite a bit, I am sad to say.

    ^ Thanks for your response :flower:.

    I ended up getting Estee Lauder double wear light instead because I heard some bad things about the Revlon mousse foundation. And I am soooo glad I did!

    I would highly recommend the double wear light to anyone who has good skin but wants a little more coverage than a tinted moisturizer.

    I find in the summer I can get away with just wearing a tinted moisturizer but in the fall/winter when my skin changes I need something with a little more coverage. I have combination skin that is oily / dry / normal (ugh) and I find the double wear light gives me a nice matte natural finish that lasts all day. I don't even have to wear powder which I really like because then it looks like it really is my skin ^_^.

    Has anyone tried Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder?
    My skin starts getting more dry when it gets colder, so I'm looking for something that will suit my skin-type

    i would second the recommendation of bourjois. i use their healthy mix foundation and (at least the colours i have used) have been yellow or quite neutral in their undertones.

    i can't comment on anything other than healthy mix though sorry!

    Has anyone tried any concealers / foundations from Etude House? I'm hearing some good reviews on YouTube but still not sure about trying it.

    Any ladies tried the loose Chanel setting powder and/or MAC Blot powder? I'm currently using the Cargo HD compact and it's pretty good but after a few hours I can see a bit of powder attached to the teeny hairs on my face. Looking for something a bit more seamless and wondering if Chanel or MAC is better for this. I use BB Cream so I am looking for a powder with a little bit of coverage, and from my understanding the MAC Blot is translucent?

    ^ I have the Chanel loose powder and it's pretty good. It does not give you much coverage, but it does even out your skin a little bit. And it lasts really long.

    Haven't tried the MAC one.

    i hate to confuse you even more but if you want powder with a little coverage, mac mineralize skinfinish is also an option (you can build it up)

    Does anybody know of any good high coverage foundations for flash photography? My face is much paler than the rest of my body, and it simply refuses to tan. I've tried several foundations and none of them are working out. All Revlon foundations give me a white cast in flash photography. Make Up Forever's HD Foundation is lovely color wise, but the coverage is too minimal. Laura Mercier has fantastic coverage, but it also gives me a white cast...
