Hi beauties! Today I thought I would do a quick review of one of my favorite drugstore foundations at the moment. This Revlon colorstay foundation is formulated to work on combination and oily skin so I thought that it was right up my alley given that my t-zone has turned into an oil producing hot spot lately.
Just like other Revlon products, this one does not disappoint when it comes to packaging. I love it when a foundation comes in a well sized bottle with a pump - I don't know why companies choose to make liquid foundation without a pump! I love the convenience and hygiene factor that the pump dispenser gives.
This is actually a full coverage foundation so it will cover everything that you are self concious about! I don't usually wear full coverage foundation because I feel that a lot of them are too heavy for my liking but this one is surprisingly light and easy to wear. The packaging promises 24 hour wear time, I haven't stayed up that long to test that claim out but it does stay put even after a long day at the office.
Unlike other full coverage foundations that I have tried, this one actually has a thinner consistency - which I actually prefer because it makes the product much easier to work with and blend onto the skin. This foundation also contains SPF 15+ sunscreen which is great to see although I would still recommend wearing sunscreen underneath it (I always wear my fave Olay sunscreen underneath).
I purchased the colour 180 Sand Beige which is a great match to my skin tone during winter when I don't wear fake tan as much.
Overall, I think this is a fantastic foundation by Revlon and one of the few full coverage foundations that I actually wear so I highly recommend it especially if you are picky like me. This foundation retails at $34.95 at my local Priceline - which is a bit on the pricey side but Priceline regularly has sales on Revlon products so I tend to wait until I can get it cheaper.
Do you have a favorite Revlon foundation?
