Today I'm going to be reviewing the latest product that has hit the Australian shores and that is...
Revlon Colorstay Foundation (for combo/oily skin)
now repackaged with a PUMP and a "new formula"
I'm sure all of you are quite familiar with the famous Revlon Colorstay foundation, known for it's high-coverage, lasting power and flawless finish. The only con was - no pump.
Revlon has heard the many cries of women everywhere and have added a PUMP! Hooray!
The other difference was, they claimed there was a "new formula" too. Uh oh.
Well, I'm here today to offer you my thoughts on this "new formula" and the foundation in general.
|look at that smexy pump|
First of all, I LOVE the pump. It doesn't squirt out too much product and it hasn't jammed up on me.
The shades is a good match for my NC20 skintone too.
Now what about the new formula?
It has a slightly thick consistency. I say "slightly" because it's not super thick and I feel one of the differences between this and the original is that it is thinner in consistency and easier to blend. This also means that it doesn't dry super fast (a problem with the original) and gives you time to work with it.
It is scentless (to my senses anyway) and it still has it's original matte finish.
Moving onto the most important part... has the COVERAGE changed?
I believe this foundation still has good, medium coverage but it's matte finish means if you layer it too much, it can look a bit cakey. As you can see in the photo, it's already making my skin look dry. Pretty great at hiding my acne scars though!
I feel like this new formula doesn't feel as heavy and thick on the skin, which is a plus.
Here's another AFTER shot in different lighting:
Did this foundation break me out?
I broke out a little but that's not surprising with Revlon Colorstay. I have uber sensitive skin so if you don't have sensitive skin, you should be fine.
In conclusion (I sound like I'm writing an english essay lol),
I would recommend this to people with not-so-sensitive skin and who require medium coverage.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
