Revlon Colorstay 24 Hours Foundation Review

After reading and hearing lots of great reviews on this product, I thought I'd buy it and give it a go myself. I bought the combination/oily foundation in the shade 'buff'. Instead of splashing out £12.99 on a foundation I really wanted, I purchased it with the points on my good ole Boots card. And let me tell you, this is the most adored foundation I've ever owned. I always love how foundations look in glass bottles, I just prefer them so much more for some reason. It also has a pump which makes things 100x easier! Who actually likes shaking the bottle to get the product out and then accidentally end up with too much product? Not me.

revlon colorstay foundation review

The foundation is very thin and lightweight. You'll never know how much fun I have applying this as I love how thin it is, it goes on so smoothly. So smoothly that I wanted to put more and more on because it was so satisfying to apply. Is that weird? Anyway, it gave me 100% full coverage as soon as I applied it. Being pale, I do have some red patches on my face but colorstay covers them brilliantly. It covers blemishes and pores too without the addition of concealer.

The shade I picked is perfect for my skin tone. I was going to get the lightest colour 'ivory' as I do with every other brand, but it looked very pink. Usually people with pale skin go for the pink undertone foundations but for me, I find that once applied I can look a bit orange. So instead, I picked the second lightest shade which I tested and matched perfectly. 'Buff' is the perfect colour for me, it's not too light or has that orange hint of colour.

My foundation was made to control combination/oily skin types. I can honestly say that it does control my crazy oily skin. But after around 10 hours, I have a little bit of a shiny forehead, which isn't a huge deal as it's not that noticeable and you can just dab your head with a beauty blender. Colorstay is meant to last for 24 hours but I am going to say no to that one. It definitely is long lasting and it controls my oily skin far longer than any other foundations I've tried, which have been around 3-4 hours. I haven't had any patchiness or fading after 15 hours and it also has SPF in which means it's a winner!

Overall, this is my most loved foundation of all time and I will definitely be buying this again! Have you tried Revlon Colorstay?

  6. it sounds perfect to control your oil for 10 hours! especially for the £12.99 price tag :D I've had foundations that are double the price and don't control my oil for as long as 10 hours!!! haha :D

  7. This is literally my holy grail foundation! I use 150 too, but then I use 180 when I have fake tan on! x

    1. The one I use at the minute for tanning is a little bit pale, so I may have to invest in getting another one of these in a darker shade for fake tan x
