Every brand of cosmetics makes at least one type of foundation, and many make more than one. With so many options for foundation, some working better than others, it’s hard to know what type to use for certain skin types.

I tend to have dry skin, so I usually go with a liquid or a cream foundation over a powder. Creams are frequently very luscious, and cover every imperfection, but can frequently feel very heavy. Liquids can provide the same coverage as cream, depending on the brand, and frequently feel more lightweight on the face.

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation is my newest addiction.

I have a few acne scars and am rather active all day, so for me finding a product that can stand up to a full day of wear, and deal with occasional contact, is a must.

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation claims it is good for 24 hour wear. While this is definitely a bit of an exaggeration, I love feeling confident that when I blow my nose, I won’t need to reapply. I feel confident in the all-over coverage this foundation gives me, and I love the fact that I can get it for $9.99 at Target.

One piece of advice if you choose to buy this foundation: get a shade that is a little lighter than you think you need. Revlon definitely mislabels these bottles.
