Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review and Swatches

Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review & Swatches

Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review & Swatches


Revlon Colorstay Foundation seems to be a very popular foundation over the past couple of months. Having heard such great reviews I decided to give it a go and ordered it from Superdrug. Revlon have two versions of this foundation. The one I have is for Combination/oily skin types and the other version is for normal/dry skin types which I think is a good idea as finding a foundation good for your skin type can be difficult.

So lets start with the packaging, it comes in a glass bottle but no pump. I hate that it doesn’t have a pump. I find without a pump I always end up using too much product. I have started dipping in the end of one of my eye shadow brushes as its small and can pick up a small amount of product. I like that it is in a glass bottle as it makes it seem more high end. It does retail at £12.99 which I think is inbetween drugstore and high end prices.

The shade I got is “180 Sand Beige”, in most foundations im either a natural beige, beige or sometimes a sand. This is the perfect colour match for me. It is advertised as medium-full coverage with that flawless look. I would say it is a full coverage foundation but i do need to build it up in area's i have breakouts.

Does it last all day? No it doesn’t. I apply this early in the morning and having oily skin I usually apply powder once during the day. I found this became slightly patchy around my cheeks which I was so disappointed. I found the coverage became lower and lower as the day went on. Since trying it with different primers i have found it can work well so if you try this foundation just try it with different primers underneath.

    1. Maybe it all depends on your skin type and the coverage you want x

  4. I'm glad I read this review, I'd heard mixed reviews about this and wasn't sure that I would like it. I'm glad that I didn't go out and by it now!

  5. I bought this foundation after reading all the rave reviews about it lately. I gotta say I'm still on the fence about it. One day I love it the next I absolutely hate it! Great review!
