Revlon Colorstay Foundation seems to be a very popular foundation over the past couple of months. Having heard such great reviews I decided to give it a go and ordered it from Superdrug. Revlon have two versions of this foundation. The one I have is for Combination/oily skin types and the other version is for normal/dry skin types which I think is a good idea as finding a foundation good for your skin type can be difficult.
So lets start with the packaging, it comes in a glass bottle but no pump. I hate that it doesn’t have a pump. I find without a pump I always end up using too much product. I have started dipping in the end of one of my eye shadow brushes as its small and can pick up a small amount of product. I like that it is in a glass bottle as it makes it seem more high end. It does retail at £12.99 which I think is inbetween drugstore and high end prices.
The shade I got is “180 Sand Beige”, in most foundations im either a natural beige, beige or sometimes a sand. This is the perfect colour match for me. It is advertised as medium-full coverage with that flawless look. I would say it is a full coverage foundation but i do need to build it up in area’s i have breakouts.
Does it last all day? No it doesn’t. I apply this early in the morning and having oily skin I usually apply powder once during the day. I found this became slightly patchy around my cheeks which I was so disappointed. I found the coverage became lower and lower as the day went on. Since trying it with different primers i have found it can work well so if you try this foundation just try it with different primers underneath.
