Revlon Colorstay products have been the market for quite sometime and their foundations are amazing. I am a huge fan of the Colorstay Whipped Foundation. This 24 Hour Foundation is recently launched in India and I managed to pick up Natural tan once again. Here we go with the review.
Revlon Colorstay Makeup 24 Hour Oily/Combination Skin Foundation Review
Price: Rs. 875 (Available for Rs. 832 at BeautyShopIndia.com)
Only 3 shades are launched in India and that’s a bummer. Natural Tan is a bit dark for my NC40 complexion but then the lighter shade was not as yellow as I would like it to be so I usually stick to Natural Tan and use a lighter powder to make up for it. If you are NC42 in MAC, Natural Tan would be a bang on match.
It comes in a tall glass bottle with a pump. I prefer plastic bottles instead of glass ones as these tend to break easily. It is transparent so lets you know how much is actually left. The pump is nice, helps you take very little product. I sometimes use this as a concealer and I can easily take out just a teeny weeny amount. Impressive.
It has the perfect consistency for a liquid foundation. It blends amazingly well and makes my skin soft and smooth. It gives a beautiful polished look and does not accentuate dry patches. However, this is best suited for combination/oily skin as it gives a matte finish and controls oil. There is a dry skin version as well.
It is a full coverage foundation and can hide all your flaws. It does not feel heavy and I recommend you use a primer for smooth application. I love using my fingers or Real Techniques Expert face brush.
It claims to be long staying for 24 hours. I tested it for around 12 hours and my sensitive skin cannot hold any makeup longer. I found that my lids and nose became oily after 6 hours but the rest of the face remained fresh and glowing. I highly recommend this foundation for bridal makeup as it photographs well and stays longer too.
The below picture was taken after 12 hours with no touch up.
Except for the shade range, I would give it full marks for being full coverage, yet light weight and long staying. Must have for oily skin.
