Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect Foundation

First Impression Review by itsjudytime

Let's start with Revlon's Photoready Airbrush Effect Foundation that's slated to give a flawless finish perfect for taking photos. It's lightweight, easy to blend, and has little sparkles for a touch of dewy finish. It retails for a super cheap price and you can choose from 12 shades!  

L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation 
Review, Swatches, Tips by Lustrelux

L'Oreal's one of the best drugstore brands out there, especially when it comes to foundation. They're known for their True Match linel but lately, their Infallible Pro Matte Foundation is also selling like hotcakes! This is the best foundation for oily skin with a yellow undertone and a full matte finish. 

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation 

Review by saytiocoartillero

Asians have been hailing Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid Foundation for its super creamy and blendable formula. It sets like a dream and clings on to the skin despite the humid weather!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum

Review & Demo by KathleenLights 

Aside from being a formula that's packed with good stuff for your skin, Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum is a gel-based foundation (different from their Healthy Mix Foundation) that works best for oily skin. It doesn't cling to your dry patches and glides through the whole application!

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation & Primer

Review by saaammage 

Rimmel is another brand that knows how to make affordable makeup deliver more than what is expected. The application is seamless and one layer covers scars and blemishes already. A little goes a long way for that natural, pore-less, and dewy finish you love!
