and I know this question has been asked before, still I can't quite get the answer I need.
So, I'm after cheaper foundation like Estee L double wear. I've been matched as Fresco and I'm happy with the match. I've used Findation which matches me with Nude in Colorstay. However it doesn't match me with any other of the cheaper long lasting foundations that are frequently recommended on here. Does that mean there isn't a match?
So, if you are Fresco in DW what other, cheaper foundations do you use please? Also if you use Nude in Colorstay and you're happy with that please tell me. My skin is normal (I think) and not sensitive.
I don't think the that Colorstay is anything like DW but the l'oreal Infallible 24hr matte is very similar. You can get the body shop lightening drops that last forever to adjust if you can get the right tone but not quite light enough. I use the drops regularly as I tan easy so I have to adjust my foundations alot in the winter months
I can't help you with the colour match but I would say that I have spent a fucking fortune on 'cheap' foundations ( still a tenner a time or more, even drugstore isn't that cheap any more!) and I ALWAYS go back to the high end ones. Foundation is one thing worth spending on, IMO.
I wear fresco too. I bought L'Oréal true match in rose vanilla 2R/2C yesterday. Fresco is 2C3 i don't know if the colour codes are general or just coincidental! I'm wearing the true match today. the make up stayed on, I went a little bit shiny a couple of times but just patted a bit of translucent powder on. I'm interested in what other posters are using too!
I think I've been buying too pale foundations over the years (me in the shop) and so coverage hasn't been great.
Ideally I want a foundation that doesn't need a setting powder, (taken me a while to work this out) so it needs to be a good matte match. Even better would be a one that's not too pricey. However, if I can't get that I'll spend a bit more, hence my op about a cheap version of DW in Fresco.
