More from the Road

The day made me really down and I had a terrible outing with my family but I ended up taking some really amazing pictures and buying a suitcase that's huge for $25.00.

Santa Monica Bound

Yesterday my family and I took a trip to Venice Beach, 3rd Street, and the Santa Monica Pier. Overall it was a really fun day but, it wasn't much shopping. More of a walk and windowshop kind of adventure. I didn't get to take many pictures but it was actually really enjoyable. Going to China Town and Olivera Street today and pictures will be up, here are only a few from yesterday!

Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation

Hey guys! So, I actually wanted to make a post about one of my recent buys that has definitely become one of my favorite drugstore products purchased probably ever. I've been looking for new products to buy for my make up collection that are long lasting, affordable, and are really just products I'm going to want to use every day. Foundation is one of the hardest things to buy where you are completely happy with the end result and didn't have to blow a ton of cash. I researched a bunch of products and I've tried out other drug store foundations such as the Fit Me collection or anything from Covergirl and nothing truly helped make my skin look smooth and finished without being either too liquidy or too cakey. A lot of gurus started raving about the new Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation and I thought to myself that before I cave and go buy a Mac Foundation for sixty dollars, I'll give drug store make up one last try and buy this product.
I bought the color 200 in Sand Beige for about $10.00 from my local Wall Mart about two and a half weeks ago and I have been using this product every single day since. The first time I applied it I actually used a bit too much, I did use my fingers and I dabbed a bit on both my cheeks, my chin, my forehead, my nose and I absolutely used too much. You don't have to use more than maybe two finger dabs worth for an entire face coverage. Once I grew more used to the product I started using it in smaller portions and it is not cakey, it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and finished. Also, since I'm still growing out of my teenage years, the foundation did not make me break out or even clog my pores; it simply did it's job and enhanced my true complexion. It feels like I'm not wearing any foundation at all. Also, Revlon sells this product by explaining it has a 24 hour hold and I'm not going to lie, I don't doubt it. It's the summer and foundations often sweat off or crinkle almost right bellow the eyes or around my laugh lines and this foundation left me smooth and glowing all day.
The foundation has .8 ounces of product inside and it's case is made out of glass but I already know that it's going to last for a very long time. I'm so glad that I didn't splurge for a more expensive foundation because as other reviews have said, this drug store product is just as good if not better. Do any of you have the Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation? Or what are some of your favorite foundation products?
