Beauty Binge: It's a match!! Woot! Woot!

I was stoked beyond words when I finally received my sizable package.

The biggest reason was a bottle of Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation in a shade that is not available in Malaysia - Natural Tan. Before this, I have been using the shade in Warm Golden. It worked, but the strong peach undertones was making me look a little washed out. I always had to top off with a darker loose powder, like Milani loose mineral powder in Medium, to balance it off. The next shade after Warm Golden available here is in Early Tan, which is a tad bit too dark for me.

Natural Tan. Warm Golden

After researching for months, I found that Natural Tan best suits NC40-42 skin tone. The price online is not cheap either, but to have a favourite foundation that matches, I had to make a few sacrifices! So I grit my teeth, crossed my fingers and toes, and ordered.

Hellalujah! It's a match!!

I *love* this foundation. It's by far the best liquid foundation in my eyes. This has been compared to MAC Studio Fix Fluid for a fraction of the price. Revlon CS Foundation is arguably one of the best, if not the best drugstore foundation. It stays till the end of the day, despite the heat and humidity; it doesn't slide or disappear, it's not cakey but still gives you awesome coverage, doesn't leave annoying brown/yellow stains on your collar ... I could go on and on gushing about this gem!! I'm not even gonna b!tch about the packaging. As far as I'm concerned, this product is purrrr-fect as is!!

*Can I get a WOOT! WOOT!*

Enjoy your day!
