  1. I'm a big fan of the Revlon Colorstay. I also love the whipped version! I'm interested in the Mac Matchmaster. It's double the cost of the Revlon. Is it worth it?

  4. A couple days before this came out I just bought YSL and I love it! I have dry skin, but with a heavy duty moisturizer it is fabulous! My skin is more normal in the summer so hopefully its just as good then! The one we have in the states has an spf 19 (Le Teinte Touche Eclat)

  5. Some of my favourite foundations are in this line up! I'd recommend the Bourjois, Chanel and Revlon ones from personal experience and a friend of mine has the Mac Matchmaster and loves it! I'll be trying the Vichy one soon since seeing you use it for heavier concealing work on your videos too! Thanks for the tips xxxx

  8. I love Bourjois foundation! I recently bought Bobbi Brown's foundation and am loving it too! Can you recommend a good foundation brush? I can't get the Real Techniques brushes in Canada.

  9. Hello!, I've tried some foundations and after awhile with all of them some lines show up and stay under my eyes, because of laughing I guess, it makes me look older, is there a problem with my skin or is it just that I haven't fount the right foundation for me? I have dry skin. Thanks!!, Btw, Here in Spain, we love your videos!! :-D

  10. I am still looking for a foundation that works for me. I've tried Revlon color stay HD and am not impressed. It is very cakey and looks like I painted my face. I like the BB cream (Garnier Fructis) but it isn't full coverage. I have dark spots that I'd like to cover, but still have a full coverage, dewy/satin finish. I also have Merle Norman tinted moisturizer, but it did not provide enough coverage so I have to use a powder foundation with it and again have the cakey painted on look. What is the very best full coverage foundation which is moisturizing and has a natural look? I am 42 so I suppose I have "mature" skin. HELP!

  11. Hi ladies! Would you recommend the Mac foundation for combination skin? My cheeks are always dry but I have an oily tzone and the only foundation I have ever been able to use is the L'oreal true match mineral powder :( xx

  12. Yes, mac is a great foundation for people with dry cheeks/to zone skin types. I can swear by it being I have the same type of skin issues and have been using the mac for about ten years with trying other brands just to compare but always go back to mac as it gives great coverage, moisturizes and doesn't feel caked on, people always compliment me on how great my make up looks, I say it's mac!

  14. This is not an easy task to choose the product for your skin care. you have to choose it according to your skin type. diabetes-exercise

  15. I am in LOVE with Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum. Anyone who likes this should also give Revlon's Colorstay a try. If I ever got sent to a desert island, this is what I'd take with me haha.
    Thanks for the tip, it's always really difficult to find appropriate foundations. What usually helps me is PS Beauty, a website that uses your previous foundations and information on your skin type, skin color, coverage preference to find the perfect foundation for you. It's out there, you just need to find it!
