I’ve been trying out this foundation for last couple weeks so that I could give an accurate review, and I am really pleased with the product! Here’s my two cents on Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation!
I didn’t find a 100% match to my skintone but I ended up going with 150 Buff, which was one of their lightest shades. Unfortunately it was slightly grey colored — but this is a common problem with fair drugstore foundations. Luckily this was the only con I found with the product. Although I did wear this foundation on its own for the sake of the review, I ended up mixing it with a more pinky foundation that I had to make the perfect shade.
It is important to note that there are two different kinds of Revlon Colorstay: one for oily skin and one for dry skin. I purchased the one for oily skin skin because it has a matte finish; I still recommend using powder because it didn’t fully set without it. I would say that it has medium to full coverage and is definitely buildable. It went on smoothly and evenly, but the drying time was pretty short — so you have to work fast! Revlon claims that it lasts 24 hours, but I wear foundation for a maximum of 8 hours so I can’t really confirm or dispute that assertion. When worn over a primer this foundation was still going strong 8 hours later. Because of the matte finish, make sure that your skin is moisturized prior to applying because it can appear a little cakey. Ladies with dry skin, proceed with caution.
I wish that it came with a pump, but that won’t keep me from repurchasing when I run out. I like to apply it with a Real Techniques Stippling Brush because it helped to sheer out the coverage and really buff it into the skin. Overall I am extremely pleased with my purchase and you can’t beat the price! I think I paid $9.97. If you are in the market for a foundation try Revlon Colorstay and let me know what you think!
