Revlon Whipped Colour Stay Foundation Review Monday, Sep 24 2012 

Hello!
Alas Revlon has done it again, they’ve created a new Colour stay foundation which has created quiet the buzz in the beauty industry. Everyone seems to be picking it up lately and also a lot of the fans of the liquid colour stay foundation have picked this one up and have compared it. Now I don’t have the liquid colour stay foundation, but I’ve heard so many good things about it, that I actually might pick it up soon and give it a try. The first looks at this foundation was.. uhh ohh they copied the maybelline mouse foundation.. wrong! I hadn’t previously owned and revlon foundations until now, I was un sure of my shade, in drugstores I found it very hard to pick a colour. There is only one tester, which is one shade.. which makes it even more difficult to pick one shade and try and get it right. I did some research first.. I looked up people that had MAC cosmetics foundations and I had seem if they had the revlon foundation and what colour in the revlon they were if they were an NW20 in MAC , which is what I am. That made it easier.. trust me.. it did take about a week to come up with this theory and to try it and see if I could come up with a shade closet to my skin colour.. and the final result.. I did!!! I purchased this foundation in the colour 220 nude. Which seems to suit people who are an NW20 in MAC Foundations. Lets start by describing the formula of this foundation.. to me it is a whipped mousse…. if that makes any sense. It is not liquid.. not creme ( close to though) so more so like a whipped formula, if I tip the jar with the lid off upside down.. it is definitely not going anywhere it is that thick.

Colour: 220 Nude

It isn’t full of air either, the packaging is less than desirable.. because it is a heavy glass jar.. and I think if you dropped this on a hard floor.. it would break. It comes with a twist on and off lid and a white cap to keep the product inside the jar, it seems unsanitary to keep dipping a makeup brush in the product.. which I guess it is, but you can also scoop some out onto your hand each time you apply this, that way your not dipping a dirty brush in it constantly. There are a few ways to apply this foundation that seems to work for this product.. which is a way that I found works best for me and it is using a stiff stippling brush such as the real techniques stippling brush and or the sigma brushes that are very dense and are able to buff in this product very well.

220 Nude

The product claims to last for 24 hours.. I don’t know anyone that would wear makeup for 24 hours while awake.. not me! I seem to get about 8+ hours out of it, with a powder and a setting spray, such as Urban decay all nighter spray!  It seems to work for oily and or dry skin.. which makes it good and appealing to all skin types.  The glass jar doesn’t do the colours justice.. you have to take off the lid and remove the white cap to actually look at the colours available.  I picked this foundation up for $17.99 Canadian… that is expensive compared to other drugstore foundations.. but this one does work and is definitely a medium to full coverage foundation worth trying if you don’t want to spend the money on a high end foundation.  Overall I will be re purchasing this foundation in the future , continuing to love the Revlon colour stay products.
