before I bought my bottle, i had myself color-matched last wednesday. then i bought my bottle last friday, and had the lady apply it on my face with the revlon primer.
i dunno if my skin's just that oily but with the primer, it didn't last more than 3 hours on me. i'll have to test it without the primer to see for sure.
also, i never noticed it from the testers, but my bottle have this distinct alcohol-y scent that i've never smelt from any other cosmetics i've owned. it bothers me a little cuz the scent's really strong, but it goes away after a while.
the lack of a pump does not bother me as much cuz i've been used to my estee lauder double wear one which doesnt have a pump as well.
i can't comment on shade choices too cuz the sand beige one matches me perfectly.
i like that coverage is really good that i can apply it without a concealer and still look good.
price-wise i think it's reasonably priced. at 825 for a 30ml bottle, i wouldnt call it expensive but considering the staying power, i wouldnt call it cheap as well. it costs about 1/3 of what i would normally pay for a 30ml bottle of double wear foundation and just about the same ratio of staying power so i guess you get what you pay for.
what i like:
- great coverage
- i have an exact shade match
- widely available
- reasonably priced
what i don't:
- strong alcohol-y scent
- staying power does not appear to last that long.
do you encounter the same scent? and the same staying power? i'm really bothered with this cuz i had such high expectations with this product.
