Flawless Base Favourite - Revlon Colorstay


I've never really been all that adventurous when it comes to foundation. If I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. Deeming the MAC foundation I tried at the beginning of the year too orange-y, I scoured the internet for a medium-full coverage foundation that wouldn't highlight the pigmentation in my skin.

I found that in Revlon Colorstay. I honestly have no idea why I switched to Rimmel's Wake Me Up in August, but now I'm back to this I'm determined not to change it again. It gives such a flawless coverage and hides 99% of any imperfections on my skin. It lasts all day on my skin without topping up, and despite being medium-full coverage it looks very natural. 

It's not the cheapest drugstore foundation around, but it's certainly not as pricey as the comparable Estee Lauder Double Wear. The only problem I have with this foundation is that on some days when my skin is feeling particularly dry, it can cling to some patches. However it's still the best foundation I've ever tried.

The lack of pump may bother some, but I'm pretty used to it now. To apply I use the Real Techniques buffing brush.

Have you tried Revlon Colorstay? Do you love it as much as I do?

  1. I really want to try this, I've heard its the best "drugstore" foundation you can find! I wasn't too impressed with Wake Me Up in the end, I found it made me look really oily!

    1. I was the same, I loved Wake Me Up in the beginning but it started to make my skin look greasy and it didn't cover as well as I would've liked. I love this one though!

  7. I use Revlon Colorstay whenever I wear makeup (which, to be honest, is pretty rare), but I really love how flawless it makes my skin look :)

  8. I switched to Rimmel a couple of weeks ago, but I might have to give this one a try too if I've got enough Boots points ;)
    The only thing holding me back with this is that you mentioned it's not great with dry skin. Is it particularly bad for this?
