Today I have another controversial makeup post. This product has been a favorite of many people because of its large shade selection, high coverage formula, and lasting power. So I got it and I'm here to tell you guys if the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation is worth the hype.
The packaging is very simple, like many foundations. It's just a cylinder contain with a screw on lid. I have one problem with the packaging, and it may just be my foundation, but sometimes mine leaks, even if I twist it close, and gets foundation all over my other makeup.
I purchased the combination Normal/Oily formula, but they also have a Normal/Dry formula. I get a little shiny so I assumed this would absorb the oil on my skin. After an average school day, which is about six hours, I'm super shiny. I don't touch up my makeup during school and when getting the oily skin formula, I assumed it would prevent this.
According the to Revlon website it's supposed to have medium to full coverage. I do think it has medium coverage, but I have to work hard with this to get full coverage. I use a stippling brush to apply this and it looks nice now. But it doesn't last for the 24 hours that it promises.
Here's a before and after photograph of me wearing the foundation. On the left is right after I applied it. On the right is after a regular six hour school day. In the right one my skin is shinier and the foundation has broken down, barely giving me a medium coverage.
I'm in the lightest shade #110 Ivory. I have really fair skin and this matches pretty well. It does
I got mine on sale for around $9, which I think is reasonable for a drugstore foundation. But if you can't get it on sale, it's about $14-15. It's one of the most expensive drugstore foundations I've ever seen. Yes there are foundations that are $12-13, but the ones I've seen don't promise the same affects of cheaper drugstore foundations.
Staying Power: ♥♥♥♥♥
Is it worth the hype~?
Honestly I prefer my Covergirl Outlast Foundation over this. Maybe I just haven't found the best way of working with Revlon Color Stay, but for now I don't see what's so great about it. It doesn't have the staying power it claims to have and I just don't really like it.
I hope you guys enjoyed this 'Worth the Hype' post. Comment if you've tried this foundation and tell me your experience with it. See you guys at my next post.
