Well hello to you my reader chums! After the massive hype of Revlon's 'colour stay' foundation, I finally caved into buying it a few months back. Over that time, it's easily become my staple foundation, where I rarely reach for anything else. Here's a few reasons why..
Its stable packaging
Revlon products always have the best looking, classy packaging and this foundation is no different. Given its glass, cylinder shaped bottle, the product looks more expensive than its high street status. As it's see through, you're able to tell not only the shade but how much product is left and when you'll need to restock. My favourite part of the packaging though has to be its pump. I'm pretty sure the pump was added to the foundation bottle quite recently and I can see why. This pump allows for the correct amount of product to come out without spillage or wastage. It's then sealed with a firm plastic lid which again prevents excess leakage. Even though the glass isn't too suitable for travelling, I love how sturdy the product is.
The colour selection
It's safe to say I have very pale skin and am usually the lightest shade when I try out new foundations or concealers, otherwise my skin will look orange. However, Revlon's 'colour stay' have fulfilled my wishes with a light range of shades to choose from. Even with the shade selection, I am still the lightest colour but its the perfect match for my complexion.
The dreamy formulation
What I love about this foundation is the two different formulations it offers, the combination/oily and normal/dry skin. I use the combination/oily type as I tend to have an oily T zone with the rest of my skin being pretty normal. The formulation is velvety soft and light, blending into the skin with hardly any effort.
Its medium coverage and flawless finish
Coverage is an important factor for me, as I'm not the biggest fan of heavy and full coverage foundations. I prefer something light in thickness which is able to cover up most subtle blemishes, luckily Revlon's 'colour stay' does just that. It's definitely a medium coverage but can be worn as even lighter than that as the product is very buildable. Once applied onto the skin, I'd say it's a satin finish, not too matte or shiny. If you'd prefer it more matte finish, a dusting of powder will do the trick.
The long-wearing power
As I have quite an oily T zone, I'm a massive fan of skin preparation to ensure my makeup lasts as long as possible. I haven't tested this foundation without a primer to see if it lasts the '24 hours' it claims, however when I've used primer before hand, this foundation wears well all day long. I get home from work and the makeup is still in place, the same as I'd applied it 8 hours beforehand.
Overall, with its velvety formulation, medium coverage, strong lasting game and classy packaging, Revlon's 'colour stay' foundation the one for me. If you have a slightly oily T zone and pale complexion, I'd highly recommend giving it a go.
I hope you enjoyed this review. Have you tried Revlon's 'colour stay'?
