Hello everyone :)
Foundation – It’s that one thing which makes my face fall when I look at my vanity box. I’ve loads of foundations, though none of them is perfect for me. Not one to give up, I went hunting for a foundation again in Health & Glow (ignoring my grumbling mum walking beside me) and spotted this beauty in the Revlon counter. The SA was very sweet and she convinced me to get this within just a couple of minutes (Yup, I’m a pushover & I was desperate :-P). Let’s move on with the review :)
What Revlon says about Revlon Colorstay Whipped Crème Makeup :
Finally, truly decadent makeup offers ultimate performance. The mousse-like texture feels like silk on your skin. And, the time release formula balances skin for a flawless look. All day flexible wear without flaking, caking or feeling heavy.
-Buildable to full coverage for flawless skin
-Soft, matte finish all day long
-Withstands heat and humidity – great for summer
-Comes in 16 beautiful shades (Unfortunately only 3 shades are available in India :C )
Price : 800 INR for 23.7ml
Shelf Life : 3yrs
I got this in the shade “Warm Golden” which is for medium skin tone with yellow undertones. I have been using it for the past couple of weeks and I must confess : This is THE best foundation I have ever tried (it has a few flaws but am willing to neglect them considering the overall quality of this product :-P)
First of all, the texture is amazing - it’s a thick liquid which blends like a dream when I blend it with my fingers and only very little amount of the product is required.
The staying power is amazing – it lasted for about 10+ hours on me and stayed put till I removed it, I did not find the need to powder or do touch ups in-between which is the first time in my trysts with foundations :-)
Coming to it’s coverage, it’s a medium to full coverage foundation. You can see how it has covered up my green veins in the pic below. I absolutely adore the glow it gives to my face, seriously, I love it! Though the shade warm golden was a bit lighter for me, it settles down and adapts to my skin tone after some time and gives me a glowing, flawless face and it photographs pretty well too .
On the downside, there are only three shades available in India (Natural Ochre, Warm Golden and Natural Tan) out of the sixteen shades launched .Why Revlon? Why? Why did you do like this?? :'( and they are suitable for fair, medium and wheatish skin tones only. I feel they should have launched more shades keeping the dusky beauties in mind.
Also, the packaging is made of glass and is too bulky, I wish they had provided a pump dispenser type of packaging since it would have been better in terms of handling and hygiene - I hate dipping my fingers into the pot. It is expensive if you consider the quantity we get (it’s just 23.7 ml) but if you consider the quality, I’m quite satisfied and I feel that the price is entirely justified.
- Talc-free and paraben-free
- Photographs beautifully
- Feels very light on skin
- Gives a flawless, glowing look
- Contains SPF 20
- Soft matte finish, as claimed
- Lasts a really long time, 10+ hours on me
- No touch ups required (For normal to dry skin)
- Very little amount of product is required for a single application so this one will last you ages
- Blends like a dream
- Packaging could’ve been better
- Only 3 shades are available
- A bit on the expensive side but totally worth it
My Rating : 4.75/5
Final Thoughts : Get it! Grab it! But do check whether it matches your skin tone well before getting it .
