Revlon Colorstay Foundation First Impression

Revlon Colorstay Foundation First Impression

Today, I'll I will be sharing with you my first impressions about the Revlon Colorstay Foundation in the shade Medium Beige in Combination/Oily.

And hey, the hype is real!

I wore it yesterday and it coursed through the hot afternoon, air conditioned mall, and also humid rainy night. Did I look like a grease ball? Heck no. I didn’t even have the need to powder my T-zone. Yes, I looked dewy by hour five or six, but I didn't really need to re-touch my base. And when I did need to retouch my makeup, I only needed to powder my T-zone. Oh, and did I mention that I paired it with Rimmel Stay Matte which is another coveted product for oily skin. These products paired together's like the dream team. Oil control can last from eight to ten hours or more.

I first applied it with Benefit’s Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer and that was a total fail. The primer just settles too quickly and I pretty much forgot how to use foundation without a pump, so it was a hassle. I applied it using my Real Techniques buffing brush too and it just looked too heavy and I didn’t like the outcome. 

So, I washed my face again, and had a second trial. But this time, I used a different set of products. I used the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer because it really does make your skin feel smoother and yup, it works great with this foundation and application was so much easier. I also found that using my ELF stippling brush rather than my Real Techniques buffing brush had a more natural finish. The foundation is already of thick consistency and offered medium coverage, so you really don’t need a lot. Using a stippling brush just makes it look light which was the look I was hoping for.

Looking forward to using this foundation with a sponge. Somehow I just feel like it would set much better.

Here's a picture after a six-hour wear. Amazing oil control as promised.

  1. Cute nyo lang.

    I've always wanted to try this, pero wala talagang shade for me. Wala silang color like l'oreal lucent magique in G4 or l'oreal super-blendable true match in fresh beige 4.5

    Kelangan ko yung yellow talaga.

    1. haha mukhang puyat lang :P

      i agree. and i got medium beige coz akala ko mag ooxidize siya. SAD to say hindi. so hindi talaga perfect match ung nakuha ko. i'm going to mix this with a darker color so i can have a perfect shade.

      hassle nga lng mag mix and it doesnt have a pump :'(

  2. This is my "special occasion" foundation kasi it really stays put and the oil control is fantastic. But I find it too much for regular or daily use.

    1. agree. i use it more on days where i know it's hot or for days that i dont wanna look oily too quickly. silicon primer goes best with this so it won't be too heavy :)
