Hey Tammy, 

I’m a huge Revlon fan for my own personal use and I must admit that I found it hard to "trust" other brands, but what I found works well is applying a translucent powder over my foundation to tone it down so I don’t get that shiny, greasy look. Revlon is a great brand for coverage, but I also had to try and test before I found my way around making it work for both me and my clients. You can even try a medium powder to add some colour if you are unhappy about looking pale. My other personal favorite is MAC just because I can apply small amounts and build my look with the foundation. It’s just as good with the lasting effect and althouhg slightly more pricey, you can build your look slowly therefore you can use less once you’ve achieved your desired level of coverage.
