I think Revlon colorstay has ruined my skin?

My skin, sensitive at the best of times, has gone completely mental. I am covered in spots, I never get spots on my cheeks and have loads right now. Even my neck has started to get spots. shock
Also eczema has broken out under my eyes which i've managed to keep at bay for years
The only thing i've done differently in the last few weeks that I can think of is change from Soap and Glory foundation (because they discontinued it! sad )
to this revlon one.

Has this happened to anyone else?
What foundation can I use as an alternative?!
I look awful. sad

The mineral powders are sposed to be less likely to provoke a reaction. Like Bare Minerals or Lily wotsits

Lily Lolo

I had the same problem with the Bourjois one everyone raves over so don't try that.

Oh and Bare Minerals really didn't work for me. It was ok for a few weeks then my skin erupted.

Yep the bourjois one did the same for me. My skin still looks horrible. Having googled it I see loads of people have had similar issue.

I'm back to using my pricier Laura mercier one.

yep it wrecked my skin, as did the bourjois one. I've swapped to a no 7 one I got colour matched, I'm v v pale and used to wear estee lauder double wear until they changed the formula. no 7 matt one is great and skin is finally going back to normal, helped along by cleansing with almond oil.

Ah thanks guys. I thought I was being paranoid but I googled and its not just me (or us!)
I'll have a try with the no7 one.
Meant to be going out tonight and have smothered my face in about five layers of concealer, which is far from great, but at least it doesn't provoke a reaction!
