Foundation Found! Makeup Review

I am a makeup junkie. I love to try new things. I am currently searching for new foundation, but I don’t want to pay my usual $32 for MAC face and body. I thought I would try to newish drug store brands Revlon photo finish $13.99 in cappuccino and Maybelline Fit $9.99 in 355.

I like both brands for different reasons. The Revlon comes with a pump has light reflecting particles it gives medium to full coverage. I think the make up looks seamless on me. It does not last all day, but that’s okay I just have to do a touchup in the afternoon.

I think Maybelline fit is great because it is medium coverage it feels like silicone going on my face, it provides good coverage, and the skin color match is good.

Verdict : I like both. They are going in my rotation. I have been using them both about 3 weeks and I have not broken out. I have acne prone skin so it doesn't take much for that to happen.  I’m happen with the price and the look of each brand on my skin.


  1. Kia, how long do you keep your makeup? I always hold on to mine until it's beyond gross! I need an intervention!

  2. I am madly in love with the Temptu make-up (at Sephora only, I think). I used to be very promiscuous foundation-wise, always trying something new, rarely going with the same formula twice. But theTemptu has tamed me. It looks flawless and lasts 10-12 hours. Downsides: expensive and while the company says each pod is supposed to last 3-6 months, I find that to be highly optimistic of them
