Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily skin promises to mattify the skin all day whilst being long lasting and full coverage. Did it live up to its promise?
Revlon very kindly send me this foundation to review but I wanted to make sure that I was as honest as possible with all of you. I am a bit of a self confessed foundation snob. I spend ridiculous amount of money on high end foundation, knowing full well that they are all made in the same factories and just as good as the drugstore foundations. I just love the service you get visiting the make up counters, ensuring that the foundation matched my skin tone and giving me ideas about what new makeup would compliment my skin too. What can I say, I like being pampered!
So I was sent the Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily skin, which is definitely what my skin is. The initial consistency of the foundation is rather thick when you take it out on the back of your hand. I had to use a buffing brush to apply it on to my skin. On first impression, it is very very matte. As in, it glosses over all the flaws and actually starts to cake on application if you don’t use a very hydrating moisturiser underneath.
After a few months of testing this foundation, I found that it definitely does what it says on the tin. It is a full coverage but you do start feeling like your face looks flat. I had to use blusher and bronzer to help add more definition to my face when I apply this foundation. It stays on all day and looks exactly the way it looks in the morning as it does at the end of the day. I got my usual shininess around my T-zone as per usual but it was no way as bad as it usually does.
So would I have bought it myself? For a special occasion yes. It wears so well and if I want a full coverage look on my face, then yes it works really well. For an everyday foundation, I need something which is lighter coverage for me and lets a little glow to come through.
