My Every Day Foundation





Revlon Colorstay Foundation - Combination/Oily
180 Sand Beige

I have been using this foundation for about a year now and thought it’s about time I confessed my love for it. I have combination skin, the majority of my skin I would class as normal but the area around my nose and chin is quite oily so finding a good foundation can be quite tricky. I can’t stand it when I look in the mirror around lunch time and think ‘Why did I bother?’ because it’s all slipped off. 
Thank goodness for REVLON COLORSTAY Foundation.

The first thing that attracted me to this foundation is the fact is designed for combination / oily skin; it was the first brand that I noticed that had actually tailored their make up for different skin types.

The product comes is a sleek 30ml glass bottle, it unfortunately doesn’t have a pump so I tend to dip in a cotton bud and dab it on my face, then I use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to give a Flawless finish. It does sink in to the skin quite quickly so I tend to apply it in sections; I start at my nose where I need the most coverage and then work my way outwards.

 This foundation has mega staying power. I put this on in the morning at about 7.30 and by 17.00 at the end of work my face still looks fresh. The only time I ever need to add a touch up is at times when my chin has a couple more blemishes than usual but other than that I am very happy with the result and the way it makes my skin look.

This foundation retails at £12.49 which I am happy to pay, and can be found in Boots and Superdrug.

Have you tried Revlon Colorstay? What’s your current everyday foundation?

  1. Really want to try this, but I am worried it will make blemish look a bit dry and cakey?

    1. It covers my blemished really well and doesn't look cakey. There is a version for dry skin though so not sure if that would be a better option for you x
