So to continue with my story, I was playing around with some bits at the Revlon counter and came across the Revlon Colorstay Foundation in 400 Caramel with SPF 15. This lightweight foundation promises 24hrs staying power and is formulated for combination and oily skin. Now that is right up my street as my skin is super oily. So what are my thoughts about the foundation? Read on....
As you can see from the pictures above, it is not a bad match at all. I just wish it was slightly lighter then it would be perfect. However, it is still a good enough and I love the fact that it is yellow based. The foundation provides medium coverage so you definitely need to apply concealer first to cover up any blemishes. However, the foundation is still buildable. It has a lightweight feel when you apply it and leaves your skin feeling smooth whilst having a matte finish which is a bonus for oily skin. It is not cakey at all and still leaves your skin with a natural look. I also found that the foundation doesn't transfer. I caught myself touching my face (bad habit I know!) and it didn't transfer. All in all, I'm really impressed with this foundation. Although my skin did become oily later in the day, my face was stilly glowing by the end of the day and the foundation did not crack. Very impressive. It definitely sits at the top of my list of drugstore foundations. If you do not have combination or oily skin, there is a range formulated for dry skin.
One thing to note though is that there is no pump, so the lid can get a little messy. It also has a chemical sort of scent which isn't the nicest, but thankfully isn't so overpowering.
I like the fact that the range caters for women with darker skintones. This foundation retails at around £12.50 for 30ml. You can pick it up from Boots or Superdrug.
Have you tried this foundation from Revlon? What is your favourite drugstore foundation?
