if you have been following my blog from the very beginning, you would know that Revlon Colorstay foundation is one of the first liquid foundations I tried since I started venturing the world of liquid foundations... & you probably would notice that after I tried it back in March of 09, I hardly ever picked it up from my stash again... see picture below to see why....
eeek!! right?!? I forgot why I stopped using it... I dunno if the shade I got was wrong... or how it looks on pictures turned me off... I don't think I gave it a second chance after that.... so I ended up returning it....
but then when I started doing makeup on clients, somehow I decided to give it another shot... I bought the shade Rich Tan for Michelle, my first client
at an Easter photoshoot
& ended up likin the finish & how it looks, atleast on my clients...
so I bought another shade for the wedding I did in May...
Kamille for the bridal makeup trial wearing the shade Fresh Beige
and here on their wedding day
it worked out really good but for some reason I just wasn't crazy about it for my self....
so when I saw it in my drawer this morning, I said hmmmmm...

although it wasn't as bad as the first picture, I'm still not crazy about it... doesn't it still look a little too white on my face?? or it might just be the SPF in it that's creating a white cast in pictures... I might give it another try, but at the moment, I know I won't be reaching for this foundation bottle...
