no more holy grail foundation....??

i can't believe it. my favorite foundation is no more. how did this happen?

when i browse the drugstore makeup aisles, i keep looking for a good deal on my foundation (i'm down to my last bottle now. i usually buy them BOGO so i always have an extra). but everywhere i go, i can only find 4 crappy shades. i just thought that since it's not a new foundation, the stores had pared down their selection to make room for newer products. but noooooo. i checked the revlon website last night, and they only carry those 4 shades!! who ever heard of a foundation line with only 4 shades? preposterous! the lightest shade is "buff". i'm almost 100% sure it's too dark for me.

you know what this is, don't you? discrimination on my pale skin. just kidding (but seriously).

ok, so now the question is, what do i use now? i'm leaning towards the regular revlon colorstay for normal/dry skin. any thoughts/reviews/opinions? they still have ivory shades for us pasty people. i'm hoping it's similar....?


  1. trublend from covergirl. it has like 3 shades also (: but believe me, i am pale as snow and i found my match.

    the thing is divided in 1 and 2. 1 is for pinkyish tones from light to dark, and 2 is for beigey tones from light to dark.

    i use number 1 because i am a pinky pale kinda girl.

    i hope that helped! and if not, keep looking, you may need to splurge on a not-so-cheap one from makeup forever or something. but just know how to save and not pile on too much makeup. (: it may be worth it.


  2. hey thanks, i may check that out!
