This Revlon Colorstay foundation has been around for quite some time and has achieved cult-like status as the go-to drugstore foundation for many people.  Drugstore foundation is one area of products that generally never seem to work for me.  And I am in NO way a makeup snob, I will try and use anything, it ...
