Revlon Colorstay Makeup w/ Softlex SPF6 in Natural Tan

Day 1: Dec. 18, 2012

When I swatched it on my hand and chin I think it's a good match or a bit light when I applied it but when it dries it's kinda darker than my skintone.

You can build it up for full coverage but you have to blend it well or else it will have patches that are heavy that are kinda noticable coz it dries fast.

I was able to coverup my blemishes with 2 layers. I don't think I need concealer that's why I always prefer to buy this foundation from Revlon.

It doesn't transfer when you dab your face with tissue but ofcourse it will transfer if you wipe it but only a little.

It doesn't feel heavy. But I think I feel a little tightness in some areas. What I don't like about this is that it leaves lines when I smile. But what you can do is don't make expressions until it dries so it won't leave lines or buff it well.

So, it's 2:35pm right now and I'll test if my face will get oily later in the evening and see what else happens.

So, my update at 7:23pm is that it's still good coverage despite that I cleaned my 75gallon fish tank. Sweat a little but didn't ruined my foundation. I think it's a little dewy but not oily. I think it's a little dark for me or ashy. I'm not sure.

Update: Dec. 19, 2012

So, I tested this again to see if it's really dark so I shaked it before I use it and I think it's a perfect match. :)

You can check pictures below for reference. :)

*I wasn't able to take a before pic coz I was so excited to try it! :) So far I'm not disappointed!

Update: Apr. 11, 2013
I've been using this mixed with my medium beige and it's closer to my skin tone. I just put a darker powder on top to match my skin tone. I just notice that I get breakouts even if I remove it with makeup remover and wash my face thoroughly. But this is the only liquid foundation that I love because it's waterproof and doesn't melt under the hot weather here in the Philippines.

Price: P500.00 from
Size: 30ml

Will I repurchase: Yes but in a lighter shade.

Will I recommend this product: Yes

Dupe for D&G Light Blue Eau de Toilette

A dupe for D&G Light Blue Eau de Toilette is the Lewis & Pearl Cologne in Dee Drops

Although it doesn't last all day coz it's a cologne but it smells good like D&G.

Price: Not sure coz it's not mine. But I believe it's around P50 for 50ml bottle.

Eskinol Spot-less White

short quick review of this product:
I love this toner as it really cleans my face and leaves my face smooth like I put primer on or powder. I believe it lightened my pimple scars in just a week I noticed it lightening. As you can see on the pictures below on 12-11-12 I have new pimples but that's because of the foundations I've been trying out and I believe those products is the cause of these pimples coz I havent been having these big pimples when I was using this.

Will I repurchase: Yes but I want to try the other variants. As a matter of fact I just bought the Pimple Fighting Facial Deep Cleanser. I wanna buy the Pore minimizer one but I didn't because I realized that my pores become smaller when I use this so I think it would do the same with any variant-instant pore minimizer. Both variants I've tried feels cool/refreshing after use.

Do I recommend: Yes, just focus on your main concern like if you have pimples and big pores I suggest you choose the pimple fighting.

Price: P48.75/135ml at Watson's

Avon Ideal Luminous Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation in Pure Beige

Short quick review:
Medium to full coverage but this is not sweatproof or water resistant. Has SPF15/PA++

I think it looks good when the sun hits ur face coz it sparkles but I haven't seen my face in the mirror under the sun just at the back of my hand with the foundation I forgot to remove. Not advisable for hot/sweaty days coz it melts.
It also transfers on tissue even when I just pat it and even with powder over it.
I just wish this was transfer resistant, sweat-proof and long lasting.
I think it gives medium coverage. If you build it up to full then goodluck with that.
Maybe this would be good for night time but I would love to wear this on daytime for the sparkling effect only if this doesn't melt.

Price: P399/30g

Will I repurchase: Nope just because it's not sweatproof/water resistant.

Sophie Makeup Remover Wipes

Short quick review: So far I like this makeup remover and I always reach for this when taking my makeup off becuase it's quick and don't need to get cotton and makeup remover liquid coz it's all-in-one and it does the job. 1pc wipe is all you need for the whole face. Feels smooth after. Feels kinda sticky when it dries on your face but I washy face with my favorite Avon facial wash as it removes more dirt. It's the avon 360 White Cleanser. I'm also using the Facial Brush from Sophie to exfoliate and deeper cleanse.

Price: P115 for 1pack/20wipes
Price of Facial Brush: P95/1 brush

Will I repurchase: Yes, actually I bought my 2nd pack and I think I can't live without this. But I'd like to try other makeup remover wipes like the ELF one but it's more expensive than this.

Avon Face and Eye Makeup Remover

Short quick review:
Removes makeup but it feels oily but dries to smooth.

Revlon Age Defying Makeup in Sand Beige

Product Description:
Revlon Age Defying Makeup with Botafirm SPF20 for Normal/Combination Skin in 10 Sand Beige

So here's another quick review of a Revlon product I just purchased this afternoon. I bought it coz it's on sale. I was hesitant to buy it after seeing the bottle from the stock because the liquid is separating and as far as I know when a liquid foundation is separating it means it's expired except for the MAC Face&Body Liquid Foundation because it is water based. I asked the SA if it's still in good condition but she said it just separated and needed to be shaked. I told her that I'm aware that if it looks like that then it must be expired and I also was having second thoughts because it's on sale like P200 from P800?! But she said that it was on sale because they have the new bottle for it and she showed it to me. So I bought it anyway coz I don't have any match from the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation and I was hesitant to buy the Whipped one coz I read that it doesn't last when you sweat/controls oil so I bought this one with the Colorstay Aqua which I'm liking to use.

So, what I can say about this product is that it smells yucky! I feel dizzy when I first applied this on my face coz the smell is so strong I can't take it. Smells like paint. I prefer the Colorstay Liquid. Looks dewy. Kinda matched my skintone but when I'm sprrading it it kinda turns light. Didn't have time to test the staying power coz I wanna get it off my face asap bcoz of the smell. I regret buying this but thankfully it's on sale.

Will I repurchase this: Definitely not!

Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Makeup in 070 Medium Deep

So, here's a short quick review of the product:

Feels like water/cool when it touched my face. It has shimmers/frost. Covers light to medium. Haven't tested the staying power . I intend to use this over my Revlon Colorstay in Medium Beige which is lighter than my skintone so this will match my skin but I think this is darker than my skintone when I put too much. Still can feel the water feeling when I apply this over my liquid foundation.

The powder is very light when you pour it it's like fine sand unlike other loose powders.

The brush included is soft unlike the Maybelline Mineral brush.

Will I repurchase this product: Maybe

How much: I bought it on sale P425.00/0.35oz
