Revlon ColourStay Foundation | A Must Have!

When it comes around to that time to buy foundation I always dread it because I struggle buying my shade, being pale most of the lightest shades from drugstores are ivory and tend to have a slight warmer tone to them which I need more of a cooler tone so I tend to go to the more higher end foundations, the only drugstore foundation that i’ve yet got on with is the Boujour Healthy Mix.

I have used Revlon’s Colour Stay foundation in the past, the version without a pump, but it really didn’t get on with my skin, I don’t know if it was a bad batch or something but I found it impossible to blend and it was so thick. A couple of weeks ago I was wandering round Boots swatching different foundations and came across ColourStay again, I tried the pump version and this seemed better suited for me.

Revlon’s ColourStay foundation (£12.99) has 35 different shades and all suitable for all skin types covering dry/normal and combination/oily.

“ColorStay™ Makeup now with a convenient pump applicator for mess free application. Flawless, matte coverage that lasts up to 24 hours.”

I picked up combination/oily in the shade ivory, as i’ve mentioned above ivory tends to be warmer, but this is definitely toned down, it is better suited for my skin without being ghostly white. The foundation is quite thin, which one pump does my whole face sometimes less than that, it is really lightweight and provides medium coverage which is easily buildable without getting that cakey look.

I tend to have quite a bit of redness and dark circles, this foundation works wonders to even out my skin tone leaving me with a fresh and matte looking base. I can honestly vouch for the foundation being long lasting, I can apply the foundation approximately 3pm and work a 12 1/2 hour night shift and it’s still perfect in the morning without looking oily making me look better than I feel.

This honestly is my new favourite and will always have a spot in my makeup bag.

What’s your favourite drugstore foundation?

  1. I just realized that my own foundation was making me break out so definitely in need of a new one! I’ve not tried Revlon before but maybe I’ll just have to go out and get it! Also companies really need to hop on to our pale game xxx


    1. Definitely give it a whirl it might just be great for you :). I know right, I usually go for the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation but sometimes you don’t want to spend a lot at least this is affordable and you get Boots points, win win :).


  2. I don’t think I have a drugstore favourite, I’ve used so many in the past which just haven’t worked for me, I find Benefit and MAC to be the best for my skin so I tend to stick with them these days, although I’m not so fond of the price tag that comes with them, I might have to look into this one.

    1. Definitely the price tag that puts me off high end foundations, I tend to use Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation if I do. I fell in love with that, but I love this and it seems to love my skin haha.


  3. I haven’t tried this particular foundation by revlon yet but I’ll give it a go! I’m really picky when it comes to foundation, because a lot of them make me break out but I’ll see if this one works for me! xx
