Today, I’ll be reviewing the Revlon Colorstay foundation for combination/oily skin.
When I first started using makeup, I wasn’t into liquid foundations. I was totally comfortable with my cream foundation, especially Mary Kay cream to powder, then my fellow makeup lover/junkie Taiwo introduced me to Revlon Colorstay.
I was quite skeptical when I was buying it, but when I used it, it was MAGIC! That was February 2015…and now I’ve opened my heart to more liquid foundations but this one holds my heart. I got this again when I needed something inexpensive for my grad that would stay the whole day. Plus it was on my May Wishlist!
America’s most-loved longwear foundation, now with a convenient pump applicator and SPF. Flawless, matte coverage that lasts up to 24 hours. Comfortable, lightweight formula specifically made for combination or oily skin to control oil absorption and shine.
•20 beautiful, longwearing shades
• Contains salicylic acid to balance skin over time
It comes in a transparent glass bottle with a black cap with “24hr” written on it. It has a thick liquid consistency which makes it able to cover and it dries totally MATTE which I love.
This foundation is amazing for people with combination and oily skin, it controls oil very well.
It has a very good wearing power and lasts all day (I haven’t worn any foundation for 24hours though). The coverage is medium and very buildable to full coverage(it can look cakey if you apply too much)
It also DOES NOT TRANSFER to clothing; which is really good for an affordable foundation. It comes with a pump (this was one issue I had with the old packaging) and to be honest, this makes me super duper happy!
The finish is really nice and it also has SPF 15 (this is why you need sun protection).
I LOVE this foundation. It is affordable, mattifying, has good coverage, does not transfer, has a pump and has SPF. And I score it a 9/10.
