Here’s todays review of the Revlon Colorstay 24 Hours Foundation. Read more of my personal experience and if this is worth the hype.
I have a confession to make here: I wanted to get the perfect makeup foundation that I will be wearing on my wedding. I didn’t know I’ve amassed a number of foundations before I have settled for “The One”.
A perfect makeup foundation for me should be:
• Correct shade for my skin tone
• Longer stay on formulation
• No photography flashback
• It should have good coverage
• It should be matte and at the same time dewy finish
So when some beauty bloggers recommended Revlon Colorstay, I had to go and get it.
Beauty Review – Revlon Colorstay 24 Hours Foundation
The foundation is in a small glass bottle packaging. I thought it was a bit old style look compared to most foundations nowadays. It doesn’t hold a pump which makes it harder to get the product out.
I got it in the shade Natural Tan. To be honest, It was too dark for my skin tone after I put it on my first try. The lady at Boots were not as friendly and helpful to me, that’s why I just had to go with my instinct and get it.
It has a bit of a smell, but it is a very, very faint one which is good.
The coverage of this foundation is from medium to full which is good for those who want a full on makeup coverage. The staying quality is really impressive. Though It ended up like a mud on my face and I had a hard time removing it. I was sort of scraping it off my face. That’s why I said I find this foundation stay-on quality is very impressive.
As it goes on longer, the shade gets darker and darker on my skin. To be honest, I don’t like it. It breaks as time goes by and since it is a matte foundation, I find it unflattering on me. The polish is smooth looking though, but I personally find it a heavy foundation to wear. It looks like a hard paint rather than a foundation on me. Hence, I had to ditched the idea that this foundation was the one for me.
Priced at £12.99
(I find it expensive because I ended up not liking it and have never used it again.)
It has several other shades to choose from. I probably got disappointed because I’ve picked the wrong shade. But it is not only because of that for me. I didn’t like the after effect of this foundation on my face.
I’m sorry girls. Probably many of you may have like or love this foundation. I rate this product 1 out 5 stars. It may have worked wonders for others, but it certainly didn’t worked on me.
If you have olive skin like me, which shade do you use? Because I would like to give it another try.
