Anyone use the above and found that their skin broke out in angry red spots? I love it as a foundation, but I'm having to head back to Max Factor.

It's definitely made me spottier. But then I've always been lax about taking my make up off before bed, and as this lasts so long I blamed it on that and try to take it off most nights.

Thurlow, I'm religious about taking mine off every night, even after a late one, I'm sure there's something in it that doesn't agree with me. Perhaps what makes it stay put?

Ah! That explains my skin at the moment. I've been loving this foundation but my skins getting quite spotty-I thought it was the fake tan I'd been using.

Can you recommend a good alternative? Which max factor one do you use?

Hi Blueberry, I mainly used Max Factor 'Face Finity' in the past but thought I would give the Revlon one a go, following recommendations on here. Like you, I really like it but, it would appear, my skin doesn't sad

Thanks pola,I've got another whopping spot on my chin today and a few blocked pores on my cheeks so I'm going to have to try something else which is such a shame.

Is the face finity a good coverage?

Not quite as good as the Colourstay, but it's a primer, concealer and foundation all in one. Would rather have less coverage on better skin grin

Sounds worth a try. Thanks for the suggestion and for starting this thread!

Pleasure. Basically, 100% of the respondents to the 'survey' have agreed their skin has got worse, so worth it!
