Review: Revlon Colorstay Foundation

After hearing much hype about this product on various websites and video sharing sites, I decided it was time to try this product out. So I drove my lazy butt to my local Rite Aid and bought the Revlon Colorstay for combo/oily skin for $13!!!

Honestly if this product didn’t work I was going to be PISSED, but fortunately it worked out great 🙂 The product  in it self is a thick and dense consistency, and A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY! Wanting to cover all my ugly blemishes the first time I tried it, I was stuck on the idea that more is better, but after massaging a giant goop into my cheek I realized what an icky mistake I just had made

PROS:

Coverage: FULL coverage! Very buildable but you have to be quick with the application because it gets tacky and unblendable fairly quick. Therefore it is best to work in small patches and remeber to mix it with your favoirte moisturizer for a lighter coverage adn feel.

Lasting Power: This stuff is like super glue! Once on, its there all day. I have very oily skin and makeup normally doesn’t stay on for very long, but for me even at the end of the day I need a few makeup wipes to take all the foundation off.

Range: This line of foundations has a  large color selection so it is fairly easy to find the right shade or combination of shades that you need

CONS:

Packaging: Hate is a strong word, but I HATE the packaging of this product! Like other foundations, Colorstay comes in a glass twist top container and you have to pour the product out. This is not only unhygienic, but after using it carefully for a few weeks, it gets really messy and goopy after a while. 

Price: For a drugstore foundation, this product is among the most expensive. $13 really! 

Overall: I would buy this product again, it covers everything, stays on all day even on my oily skin, and since a little  goes a long way, the product lasts a long time since you dont have to re purchase it all the time.
