{Review} Yardley : STAYFAST

imagesA while back I got a voucher to purchase the Yardley Stayfast Range and I was pretty excited to try it out because I still haven’t found the “perfect” foundation for my skin type. The 3 products that I purchased was the Foundation, Concealer and Pressed Powder. All three cost about R300 all together. I then headed down to the Yardley counter at Foschini in Canal Walk and got it matched to my complexion. yardley_stayfast_art*Tip* if you do get yours matched, rather get each product matched individually and don’t choose each product according to one shade.

Yardley Stayfast – Skin Perfecting Concealer {Tan 04}
First up is the Concealer. I love this product and its most definitely my fave product out of the bunch. Its perfect for hiding those little imperfections and dark circles around your eyes. It also protects your skin against the UV rays. The roll-up function is one the most amazing features of this concealer as you don’t have to sharpen it like most concealers. I’d definitely purchase this again. 2013-04-04 17.05.14
Yardley Stayfast Foundation (Caramel Fudge 08)
This was one of the main reasons why I went to the Yardley Counter to get my foundation matched. I’ve got a skin tone that requires the perfect shade of foundation because I’m not pale and I’m not tan either. The MUA settled on Caramel Fudge and it was fine on some areas of my face. When blended into the skin, it comes across as orange and on warmer days this foundation would be your worse nightmare. I hated that it rubbed off so easily and during the course of the day your face looks greasy/oily. It also doesn’t offer much coverage and when you apply more foundation to the area that requires a little more coverage, it becomes cakey. The only thing that I loved about this foundation is that it has SPF 20 in it but that’s not enough for me to purchase this product again. 2013-04-04 17.09.31
Yardley Stayfast Pressed Powder in {Caramel Fudge 07}.
I had no problem with this product, its actually one of my makeup bag staples at the moment. Its similar to my Clarins shine stopper powder. I use this over my Garnier BB cream. Its also a great foundation for the rest of your makeup. It helps control oil without drying your face or letting it look ashy.2013-04-04 17.01.19All in all, I’m definitely going to repurchase the Concealer and Pressed Powder. I’ve read mix reviews on the foundation so I guess it varies from skin type and tone. The prices of this range is quite affordable compared to other brands. You can find this range at Edgars, Foschini, Dischem and Clicks stores.
