BEAUTY: Revlon Colorstay Skin Foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear Dupe)

Just before I went away to America my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation ran out (panic!), I thought I'd just buy some more while out in America as I presumed it would be cheaper. After doing a lot of searching it seemed it wasn't any cheaper and the fact that I have a £25 Debenhams gift card waiting to be used, it was too tempting to just wait to use that. I then had no foundation for my holiday, after a lot of searching around for a high street foundation that had a medium to full coverage I settled on the Revlon Colorstay Combination/Oily Skin Foundation in Ivory ($9). This foundation is available in 20 shades, it was quite overwhelming standing in the middle of Walmart trying to match my skintone without any samples to try. I settled on Ivory which isn't a bad match but I think I could have done with one slightly darker, as it's summer I will be fake tanning.

I'm seriously impressed with the coverage of this drugstore foundation! Every drugstore foundation I had tried previously never really gave me the coverage I wanted, hence moving to high end foundations. It's true to its claim, as  medium to full coverage foundation. It blends really easily, I've been applying it with the EcoTools Custom Buffering Brush and it's a match made in heaven. It sinks into my skin to make it look flawless.

(Similar to the Double Wear - a glass jar with no pump, which makes getting the foundation out of the jar quite hard!)
I was also surprised at how well it lasts, I don't use a primer on a daily basis yet this foundation stayed put almost all day long. I did need to 'powder my nose' throughout the day but that's not really a reflection of the foundation. This has become my favourite drugstore brand and it is a good dupe for the Estee Lauder Double Wear. Personally, Double Wear is still my favourite just because I love the consistency and full coverage look but for day to day use I'm now using Revlon Colorstay.

Do you have any other foundations that are good dupes for the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation?

Feel free to leave me a comment :)
