First impression foundation

So sorry for being gone so long. But I am back and with some stuff to talk about!!! So boog and I, my mom, went couponing with my sister at CVS for $2 cases of water and I, of course, had to cruise the makeup section. As I scan the deals of the week I noticed a new, at least the label said new, foundation from revlon. This is the revlon Nearly Naked broad spectrum SPF20 foundation in the shade 220 natural tan. At my local CVS it was 75% off. Now each CVS is different. My other CVS had different shades on sale so that kinda sucked but oh well. Now again I have combo/oily skin, my skin is also acne prone. So I will also show you my makeup routine which is a little long but I love it. I wore this makeup alllllll day. I also tried the NYC liquid eyeliner in black for the first time as well. Now I have step by step photos of my makeup routine so be prepared for tons of pics!! And at the end I will give my full review of the foundation.

Next I moisturize (unless I use a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer I will skip this step). This is my holy grail day moisturizer. Lancome bienfait aqua vital. With oily skin gel is the best moisturizer and this is the bomb!!

Moisturizer your lips early so that your lips have time to absorb the goodness. I use Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream skin protectant for my lips. Aslo good for dry elbows, knees, and feet.

I do my eyes first and I put scotch tape on the outer V of my eye to keep things clean and sharp. also it's perfect to do a nice precise winged liner.

I love priming my eyes with shadow crayons. They don't crease on me and they help my shadows stay all day and the color to pop. This one is my fav which is the Jordana 12 hr made to last eyeshadow pencil in the color 04 continuous almond.

Time to set all my face liquids so that nothing moves or get patchy. for under eye, bridge of my nose, and my cupid's bow, I use a lighter powder to keep my glow so I use it cosmetics cc+ radiance palette brightening powder.  For the rest of my face I use my Lancome duel finish powder in sable

I then added a random cover girl lipstick in Sweet Sucre (very moisturizing and great color payoff). This is a full face that i do. Not on a daily basis, most but not all lol. I did a full face to push this foundation to the limit to see if it can handle a day of running errands. I put this foundation on at 10am and it is now 10:30 pm  and I only had to powder once. Overall: a really good foundation and really natural looking. It’s like a your skin but better kinda thing.
