  1. I really want to try the Armani one!

  2. Have you tried the Avon one? I just got it in today so will have to test it out. The mark one just slides off my slick face LOL!

  3. I haven't tried the Avon one, but I have heard good things from others about it - it sounded like the Revlon ColorStay one but not quite as heavy. Doesn't surprise me about mark. - cream foundations are not usually the best choice for oily skin!

    Best, Lisamarie
