Setting the Foundation

These are the two foundations I have right now...

Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Foundation
I never bought foundation from Maybelline before until I saw this one. It was something new, it said it's a mineral makeup, and contained spf 18. I thought it would be a good buy & also good for my skin. I bought it from Walmart between $7-9. It comes in a 1 fl oz. pastic tube with a tip end. I like that it has that tip end so you can control how much you want to use. It come in 2 different shade light, medium & dark with a range of color in each shade that's numbered. For example the foundation I'm using is Medium 3. The foundation provides a light to medium coverage. While I was using this product it never caused me to breakout. The foundation did seem to fade as the day went. I have combination skin so I don't know if it's because I can get oily that the foundation didn't really stay. It's a good product if you don't need full coverage.

Pro: Light weight & won't clog your pores to cause breakouts
Con: Not a full coverage foundation & didn't work for my oily skin
Buy Again: No

Revlon Colorstay Foundation (Combination/Oily Skin)
After using Maybelline Mineral Power I wanted to find a full coverage foundation. I found this Revlon Foundation in Ulta for $10.50. The reason I bought this particular one was it a full coverage foundation, it contained spf 6, and they had a line formulated combination/oily skin (which is what I am) and then another for normal/dry skin. It comes in a 1 fl. oz. glass tube container in serveral shades. Revlon claims that it will give you full coverage that last for 16 hours 7 that it's transfer resistant. I'm not sure if it does last that long but for me it stayed longer then the Maybelline brand. It provides such great coverage for me that I don't even use concealer with it and it still feels light weight. This is my favorite foundation by far.

Pro: Full coverage & long lasting. It's specialize for your skin type
Con: I don't like the glass tube
Buy Again: Yes
