Review: Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation

This is a product I had always wanted to try out. I finally got it before Orientation Ball as I needed a new foundation.


I have two shades of the foundation, 180 Sand Beige and 310 Warm Golden. Sand Beige is just one shade lighter than Warm Golden. You can't really see the difference from the picture but when I apply it on my face, it makes a lot of difference, Warm Golden is way too dark for me.

What I like about this product?
It complements my skin very well. It looks natural and is not cakey. It looks more as if I have better skin than have a foundation over my face. I love its amazing coverage I don't have to use concealer after applying it, unless I have really bad dark eye circles or any pimple scar. It says that it can last up to 16 hours. I am not too sure whether this is true, but it definitely lasts long. It is specially for people who have combination/oily skin. I have oily combination skin. With normal foundation on, I have to blot my face around 2 hours after application. With this foundation I can run around and not worry about my foundation melting. However, I still have to blot my face if I am wearing it for the whole day, but not as many times as when I use some other foundation though. It is not tacky and very lightweight.

What I dislike about this product?
It doesn't come with a pump and this makes it very hard to control the amount of product I use every time. Besides, it also has a very strange smell and the smell stays quite long on my face. However, I am sure that other people cannot smell it unless that person's nose is just one inch away from your face, and it does go away after a while. Another thing about this product is it doesn't blend very well, it gets kind of streaky. This does not bother me too much though, I just have to spend more time blending it. It dries very fast, but I think has something to do its formula that makes it suitable for combination/oily skin. It is quite pricey for a drugstore brand cosmetic.

Price: Can't remember, it is around RM55, one of most expensive drugstore brand foundation. I will check the price out and post it up here soon.

Will I buy this product again?
Yes. It has become one of my must-have items.
