Rant: Drugstore Foundation
HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT SHADE I AM?!!!
Drugstore foundation's most common failure is lack of tester bottles. The best I can do is hold it up to my face and run rampant around the store trying to find a mirror. Even that doesn't help. I ALWAYS end up with the wrong shade, hence the reason why I always mix my drugstore foundations.
So there I was, desperate to try Revlon's PhotoReady, but clueless on which one to buy. Even though Walgreens and Rite Aid have makeup guarantees (meaning if you try it and don't like it you can still return) I'm one of THOSE people who cower from guilt and can never bring myself to return a used item. I ended up just grabbing a bottle in Natural Beige only to come home and find the colors dramatically different. Sigh. So I'll have to wait until they get nude back in stock to exchange my (unopened) bottle of Natural Beige.
Have you guys been through this? Are you able to easily find your shade?
