Great colour range
Long lasting
No breakouts
Revlon Colorstay
How it works for me
I apply this onto moisturised skin using a stippling brush or foundation brush. I tend to start applying the foundation on my problem areas (for me, my chin), then work a thin layer onto the rest of the face and neck. I then go back and add another layer to any areas that need extra coverage.

For day to day wear I use Revlon Colorstay foundation without a concealer and I find it gives me enough coverage and I am not concious of my blemishes.  I will however use concealer for a night out or when I know photos will be taken.

I set the foundation with a loose powder and for me it lasts all day. I do not use a primer everyday, only when I know I will be wearing my make-up longer than usual or when my skin is overly oily as in the summer.

The coverage can be built up to a full coverage by layering or can be left as a medium coverage. For such a high coverage foundation it feels lightweight on the skin.

I have never had any issues with Revlon Colorstay Foundation causing me breakouts. I feel as though it reduces the oil on my skin, but whether this is because it absorbs the oil or reduces oil flow I do not know.

This foundation has an SPF of 6, which isn't very high but I use this with an SPF moisturiser so this isn't a problem for me.

The only con I find is the smell. When wet the foundation smells like paint which at first was off putting but once the product has set on the skin there is no scent.

I use the colour 110 Ivory for combination/oily skin.

I highly recommend that you try this product.

It is around $40 in New Zealand. In my mind well worth the price.

Please feel free to ask questions and I will answer as best I can.
