Almay’s Pure Blend liquid foundation

I bought some of Almay’s Pure Blend liquid foundation at CVS in the color ivory. It’s nice, although it doesn’t have a lot of coverage. I use the Devita concealor underneath it over the scars/spots. I did come up with a couple of little bumps though, which seem to be going away already, but it could be because I haven’t been using the Devita cocoa masque as often as I’m supposed to and I skipped washing my face a couple of mornings when I was hanging out at home. Also, they didn’t have any testers there. You have to go by these little color dots on the tubes. Looking at their website, I might actually be closer to the color "buff", hard to tell. It’s quite expensive for a small size of foundation but it is 97% natural. http://www.almay.com/Pg/Main/CatProdDet.aspx?catid=31&catnm=Face&subid=233&subnm=Foundation&prd=29417&osubnm=Foundation I don’t see anywhere where it says "non-comedogenic" though.

  1. I started getting some breakouts — not big, but still a few cropped up, so I’m going to return it. I’m going to go to a store that sells the Mychelle make-ups and try them out.
