Revlon ColorStay Foundation Review

Hello everyone! As promised heres my review of Revlon's ColorStay foundation:

So, I've been using this for a few weeks now and I can't say that its worth raving about or slating. Revlon Colorstay is quite simply just a good foundation.

At £12.49, its pretty pricey for a high-street foundation, but many people compare it to MAC etc, so its cheap compared to £19.50 for a bottle of MAC's Studio Fix.

I bought this foundation in Boots, and was colour matched to the shade Sand Beige for combination/oily skin. Revlon ColorStay comes in two types, one for dry skin and one for oily! I probably would have picked a lighter colour for myself if there hadn't been an assistant there, but I'd say shes matched me pretty well.

It claims to have 24 hour wear, but this is a blatant lie - no foundation has 24 hour wear!

I'd say it lasts a good few hours on my very oily skin, but it does start to slide after a while. It has a lovely matt finish and is a medium buildable coverage. It also oxidizes, so after a few hours I start looking a little orange.

I'd hoped this would be the foundation for me, I'd heard so many good things. But sadly, it just wasn't the miracle product I was hoping it would be. Overall, I'd say its a great foundation for anyone with slightly oily skin, but for those whose faces are like an oil spill, it just doesn't live up to its hype.

Hope you enjoyed this post, have you tried Revlon ColorStay, what do you think? xx


  1. I have very dry skin, so I'd be interested in giving this a try. I'd definitely go for the lightest shade though, especially if it turns a bit darker (or orange!) after a bit xx

    1. I think the one for dry skin would be less likely to oxidize because its oily skin that causes it to go darker! So I think you'd be alright! :) xx

  2. I've yet to try it because of the price, it's 17 euro in my local Boots, such a rip off!

    1. Ouch that is a bit pricey! Especially for a high-street foundation xx

  3. Everything published made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you added a little
    information? I am not suggesting your information is not good, but what
    if you added a title that makes people desire more?
    I mean "Revlon ColorStay Foundation Review" is
    a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you've got to say.
    In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
