Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation vs. Covergirl Trublend

As someone with pale skin I am constantly on the quest for a good foundation that will not look too dark on me.  I also have neutral undertones, so foundations will often look either too yellow, or too pink on my skin.  I've tried tons of drugstore foundations, as well as higher-end ones (NARS, Laura Mercier), and none of them seem to be my holy grail foundation.  They either cause me to become way too oily, or the colour just does not suit me.

I thought all hope was lost until I saw a video by MissGlamorazzi in which she discussed the Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous foundation.  I hadn't tried a Covergirl foundation since high school, so I thought it was worth a shot!  I grabbed it in shade 905, the lightest in the range.  I was immediately floored.  The coverage on this foundation is spectacular, and if you finish with a powder, it blends beautifully and looks flawless.  It lasts all day, and even by the time I get home from work 8 hours later, it isn't shiny.  This is the first foundation that I have not had to powder throughout the day, and I have oily skin.  I have already been through three bottles of this.

So I've found my holy grail foundation... why then, you might ask, am I still spending money experimenting on other ones?!  It's a sickness... there's always that tug towards trying other things to see if you can find something even more amazing.  Unfortunately, Covergirl Trublend was NOT that for me.  When I swatched the lightest shade, 405, next to the lightest shade in the Outlast range, the Trublend foundation was actually lighter.  You can see it in the picture if you look closely, the foundation on the left is Outlast, and the one on the right is the Trublend.  The Outlast appears slightly more orangey in the side-by-side.  HOWEVER, when applied, the Trublend almost immediately oxidized, and I felt like someone from Jersey Shore, ugh.  It was also, almost instantly oily on me, even after applying a powder.  This one also required multiple powder touch-ups throughout the day.  By the end of the day it did not look anywhere near as flawless as the Outlast.

Needless to say, I will be sticking with Covergirl Outlast foundation because it gives me everything I need and it is a near perfect match for my pale, neutrally under-toned skin.  The only thing that I could criticize about Outlast is that there is always some left in the bottom that I cannot get out with the pump!  But, I can live with that.  It covers my acne scars and hyper pigmentation beautifully, it is a definite winner!
