Revlon ColorStay™ Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin | Review

My recent trip to Boots which was purely to kill time and have a browse turned into a bit of a splurge. I got sucked into the 3 for 2 offers (as you do) and in the process found a drugstore foundation which I have fallen in love with, I think it is going to be my new holy grail product.

Revlon ColorStay™ Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin is a liquid foundation with SoftFlex formula. It provides a weightless feel when applied and goes on really well which allows you to build the coverage from Medium to Heavy. It does contain an SPF of 6 so if you know you’re going to be taking a lot of photos you may want to turn the flash off where possible.

This is my first dip into a drugstore foundation as I’ve previously struggled to get the correct colour combination for my skin tone as well as my increasingly oily skin type. After reading a few reviews Revlon ColorStay™ came top for eliminating oils so I thought I’d give it a go.

The foundation comes in 30ml clear glass bottle which is fab but it has a screw top, which is the biggest downside! I’m so used to having a pump on my foundations as you can control how much product comes out which in turn creates less product wastage. I also thought it was on the more expensive side (£12.49) for drugstore foundation but I guess it’s half the price of my previous high end one.

The application of the product is great, it’s blendable and buildable which leaves the skin looking flawless and a small amount goes a long way. It’s important with any foundation not to build using heavy layers as you will most definitely get a cakey finish. Thin layers are the way forward with this product if you want a full coverage. I would recommend you using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush to enhance the flawless application; it is my all time favourite make up brush.

I’ve been using it for the last three weeks and I have to say I’m very impressed, it has kept me matte for the entire day (approx 9 hours) compared to my previous high end foundation which left me shiny after a couple of hours. Revlon claims that the foundation will last for ’16 hours’ not sure how true this is as I don’t ever have my make up on for that long but from the staying power I’ve experienced I wouldn’t be surprised if it does.

If you have combination/oily skin I would definitely recommend you giving this foundation a try. There isn’t a huge colour range but I think most skin tones would be catered for. I bought the foundation in Rich Tan which is slightly light for my skin tone but when I use a bronzer over it the shade is perfect. I would love for you to recommend some more oil free foundations which are affordable and great for everyday use.
