Its revlon vital radiance line softening make up in almond. I can't find it anywhere, so I need an alternative. I love that its not a proper foundation, its much lighter. I can't use mousse foundations and have combination skin. The almond is a perfect match.

Look on Amazon and Ebay? I would just Google it. I've found if there's a health and beauty item you really want you can usually find someone selling it.

I have googled and googled. Found it in a different colour (even bought it in a different colour) but its just not the same. I can't even find it in stock from the us.

Hm. Tough one. Hate when this happens. Maybe try contacting Revlon and ask them if it's been discontinued -- I just looked on their website and Vital Radiance didn't appear under foundations. Good luck . . . !

Looks like it was discontinued some time ago.

Time to start the quest for another foundation you can love almost as much?

<Sob> it really is the best stuff. Any suggestions? I am a cheapskate!

Their new Photoready liquid foundation is excellent, its very light reflecting so softening on lines etc. I'd say its medium coverage but you could mix with a little moisturiser or primer to lighten up the coverage (and make it go much much further...). Its often on offer in Boots

I've ordered their bare it all lotion makeup, its got the same sort of light coverage (I'm not particularly liney, just liked the feel of it and the dewy look it gave me) and if its nice I will stockpile (lasts me a year) anyone want a tawny non-foundation?

Having said that, might try the photoready stuff too!

Try the Bourjois 10 hour sleep effect make up. It's light and dewy and pretty amazing, in my opionion. As is their Healthy Mix, which is more like a proper foundation. I prefer them to most high end stuff.
