                    Revlon Colorstay Makeup  with Soft Flex SPF 6 (Combination/oily skin )
I am completely in love with my MAC studio fix foundation but I was looking for a foundation which is easy on the pocket .This foundation is quiet affordable and I am happy to stay that affordability and quality works hand in hand.I have tried couple of foundation and now I can proudly say that companies have started making foundation which consumer are looking for.
What the product claims-  Specially formulated for combination or oily skin, this oil-free formula helps control shine all day and gives you flawless looking skin.
Makeup looks fresh and feels great for up to 16 hours thanks to the lightweight, comfortable feel from the Patented SoftFlex® Formula.
Medium to full coverage, with SPF 6 protection.

Price of Revlon colorstay foundation price -Rs 745 

Availability – On all the outlets of Revlon
                                Swatch of Revlon colorstay
My experience with the product-The color of the foundation was way different from my MAC foundation but some how SA convinced me that this color will suit me.She recommended warm golden to me and with heavy heart I took it as I have heard great reviews about the product.
When I used it I was constantly comparing it with MAC fluid foundation which is not justified because MAC is a high end make up brand but to my surprise it competed well with MAC too.
If I compare it with MAC then only  difference which I found was that MAC has better coverage then Revlon colorstay and it last for longer duration.Mac is thicker in consistency that is why it give a better coverage .
Revlon on the other hand give medium coverage but gives a dewy finish .It doesn’t break me out at all and it is so light on face that I do not even feel that I am wearing something.
There are six colors available in Revlon colorstay
1.Revlon Ivory
2.Revlon Buff
3.Sand Beige
5.Revlon Natural Beige
6.Revlon Medium Beige
Some of the Pros of the product are:-
1.Of course first the affordable price for person like me who is ready to buy any foundation which she come across.
2.It is just not cakey and it has a high glass packaging .I have dropped it twice and it didn’t break.Surprising naa? though I wish it could have a pump also with it but I don’t mind using it without the pump too.
3.Doesn’t dry out my skin though I always moisturize my skin before applying any foundation so most of the foundation don’t dry up .
4.It doesn’t irritate my skin  and last for whole day .Give a fresh looking skin to me and little foundation goes a loong long way.
5.If you have seen my make up tutorials with MAC fluid foundation you will still find me looking little yellowish but with this I am looking much fresher.Check out the pic below.
 
I am wearing Revlon color stay foundation and I have used touch and glow moisturizing powder of Revlon.I wanted to review the product with the foundation itself but I had so much to speak about the foundation that I decided to do a separate post for it.
Cons:-
1.Lot of my product gets wasted because it doesn’t have a pump and is of thin consistency.
2.I am not sure weather it will suit sensitive skin or not.
3.There are six shades so you have to quiet care full in choosing .
4.If you apply to much of this foundation it will create a white cast on photos so better stick to MAC if you think you will be clicked that day.
5.Dry skin people will have to intensively moistruize their skin before applying this foundation as it may flake out their skin without proper moisturizer.
Worth a Buy-I would suggest this too all oily and combination skin people to try it once.May be you get your perfect foundation which you were looking for.Also, with this I would also like you to buy the Revlon moisturizing powder because that give more coverage and goes long way.
Rating-4/5
  • Packaging-3.5 /5 (Would have given it more if Revlon had given a pump with it)
  • Price-5/5(After all it competed MAC)
  • Will I re-purchaseSurely I am going to repurchase it again.
Hope you guys enjoying your weekend.
