Just to give a brief introduction about my skin: I have combination/oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin. My cheeks are about normal (not dry nor oily), but my t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) are oily. So when I am looking for facial products in general, I usually go for something that is oil-free, will not clog my pores, and will not break me out. For foundations, I prefer something with medium coverage to help cover up with some previous acne marks, and some new break outs I might have. I first featured this product in my January 2012 Haul (/viz/january-2012-cvs-haul) and I have been using it everyday for 2 weeks now. I`ve finally decided it`s about time I do a review on it. First off, the Revlon website claims that the
Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin
is a medium to full coverage foundation with SPF 6. It is an oil-free formula that helps control shine all day and gives flawless looking skin. It looks fresh and feels great for up to 16 hours thanks to the lightweight, comfortable feel from the SoftFlex ColorStay formula.
Pros: - Stays true to its claim of medium to full coverage. Even on the days when my skin is behaving well, and I don`t need that much coverage, it can also be sheered out into a light coverage. - Does not feel heavy or cakey on the face. - Did not irritate my skin. - Doesn`t seem to oxidize. - A matte finish so you may choose not to powder afterwards. - Appeared to be pretty natural (a few people didn`t even know I was wearing foundation). - Easy to find and has a wide variety of shades. - Also has a Combination/Dry formula.
Cons: - Still left my t-zone somewhat oily and shiny so I needed to blot in those areas at least once a day. - Dries relatively quickly so it may be a little hard to blend. - May be hard to remove so if you`re not careful, it can cause pimples. Just make sure you clean your face well to make sure no foundation is left on your skin before going to bed. - Does not come with a pump.
Tip: If you use a paddle foundation brush, this formula can leave streak marks. If you use a flat top brush, it`s easy to over-apply this and cake up. So my advice, use a wet sponge (take a triangle sponge and spray it with water) to help blend out this foundation. I also highly recommend investing on a Beauty Blender. For reference, I`m about an NC30/35 in MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation, and I can use 300 Golden Beige or 310 Warm Golden. They look relatively similar on my skin (good thing it`s not orange like MAC, as you can see from my swatch picture).
My Verdict: Not my Holy Grail foundation, but it`s pretty darn close. I highly recommend this product. ==================================================================== If you have any questions, don`t hesitate to ask. ^_^ To stay updated with my posts on hair, makeup, and food, dont forget to Follow me! ** Photos and content are mine.
