Empties⎪Drugstore foundations

Revlon Colorstay ⎪ Maybelline Superstay 24H ⎪ Rimmel Wake Me Up ⎪ Bourjois Happy Light ⎪ Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector 

I have finished so many drugstores foundations lately that I had to write an 'empties' post and share my thoughts on them with you. I love to read that kind of post before treating myself with new foundations so let's do this! Reminder : I have a dry skin and some acne scars on my cheeks.

First of the bunch is the Revlon Colorstay, I got this because I was looking for a cheaper version of Estée Lauder Double Wear, a long-lasting covering foundation. I'd head sooo many good reviews on this that I knew I had to try it. At first I was really pleased with it. Covering and long-lasting as I was expecting. On the long term I got tired of the heaviness of the coverage and lack of dewiness (is that even a word?) so I just use it to mix other foundation. Will I rebuy this? Probably not. I much prefer my Estée Lauder Double Wear. 

When I bought the Maybelline SuperStay 24H  I was hoping the same kind of results : good coverage and long-lasting. It did and I much prefer this to the Revlon Colorstay just because I doesn't have a cakey feeling at the end of the day. Will I rebuy this? Yes as I always need a covering, long-lasting foundation in my stash for those horrible skin days.

Rimmel Wake Me Up! was my very first Rimmel purchase back in the days. I was really curious to see what was this brand all about. The Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation is said to give an instant radiant looking skin and all I have to say is that I really does. I love this foundation, it's perfect for when my dry skin gets all dull. It is a bit shimmery and gives the most amazing dewy finish. I will definitely rebuy this (but not right away because I want to try the YSL Youth Liberator foundation first)

Bourjois Happy Light is the latest addition to the Bourjois foundation range. I received this back in August and have been using it to the extend that the bottle is already empty (I have never in my life finished a product so fast). I love everything about this foundation. The packaging, the finish, the texture, the application, the smell. It gives the most amazing dewy, glowy finish and my skin look radiant when I wear. Will I rebuy this? YES YES YES. Definitely a must have!

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector is (believe me or not) my first and only BB cream. I have jump into the BB cream bandwagon quite late because I had no idea where to start. I received this so that's why I started using it. At first I was quite skeptical because I'm not really into Garnier products and I feared that my skin would react. After the first application I was so amazed with the result on my skin. Although it being very VERY dewy and not very covering it gives the most radiant skin for those days when I just want to wear 'nothing' on my skin without it looking horrible. I will definitely be rebuying this!

I've just started using the colorstay and I definitely know what you mean by lack of dewyness! My biggest issue with it is that it's impossible to get the product out! I wish it came with a pump!
