I need a high covering foundation.
I get the few pimples here and there, have a little bit of redness around my nose and chin.
I wanetd to try Revlon Colorstay Comb/Oily, but i heard it takes a week to get off, so that put me off. :|
I don't like those mousse matte finish ones either.
i like liquid.
I don't want anything to expensive. I live in Australia.
Help would be much appreciated. =D

I have used ColorStay, and it comes off easily with olive oil. I just follow up by washing twice with my regular cleanser.

Has it got good coverage?
Or do you still need a concealer for the bits of red?

It's got good coverage, but you might still need a concealer.

Well, $36.95 or something, but still expensive!
I usually spend around $15.

$40 for colorstay, DAYUM!!!

But Leti's right. Just some olive oil and it slides right off. It's got medium, so I usually do a layer then go over what I need to afterward, or do concealer. It doesn't cover EVERYTHING tho.

Colorstay is nice, and definitely high coverage - but I guess it's cakey on my skin. Do you have a Nordstroms?

I use Luminess Air... its a little expensive initially for the whole shibang but the foundations are a reasonable price. I have some pretty red acne scars around my lip and chin that need FULL coverage and this does the job! I love it! I don't use a concealer though just some primer.

You could try MAC Studio Tech too. I just used it recently and realized how THICK it is... So you get coverage quickly, but there's the risk of looking mask-like, so go easy and build it up. I've never had issues with breakouts like some ppl have had with MAC foundations.

l'oreal infallible is the best drugstore foundation i've used...the coverage is amazing, it's about $14 here in the u.s.
