Hi guys, I thought I would do a review of the Revlon Colorstay foundation this week as I bought it recently and have been testing it out! As a self -confessed makeup addict, I’m always looking for new products to try and see if they work for me. I feel like Revlon Colorstay has been around for years but i’d never tried it as i’m slightly cautious about buying drugstore foundations… The endless struggles of “does this match my face” whilst getting confused about which ones are testers and argh i’m swatching the same colour AGAIN why don’t people but them back in the right section and the best of all finding the one that matches you and finding they don’t have it in stock. I hope this isn’t just me! Anyway I picked this up to try and I have some thoughts.
→This gives a light but buildable coverage although it’s definitely more visible on the skin than some other ‘light’ base products such as my Rimmel match perfection. If you don’t mind being able to see it on the skin this might be great for you!
→If you have dry patches, make sure you moisturise before using this. Foundation tends to sit around my nose and on my cheeks and this one did when I used it without a primer.
→The colour range isn’t fantastic. I struggled to find my shade in this and ended up just getting the lightest shade [not to self: don’t do that].
→The lasting power is great; it fades in the best way possible and doesn’t go patchy throughout the day. This also looks great when used with a powder.
→This doesn’t come with a pump! Well at least mine didn’t- I’ve heard that Revlon have started putting pumps on some of their foundations so i’d be interested to know if his one now comes with a pump too!
So those were my thoughts on the Revlon Colorstay foundation. I think if I had the right shade this could well be a hit for me! What do you think?
Happy Easter my lovely readers 🙂
