We have heard a lot about this foundation due to its oil control quality, i however swear by my MAC Studio Fix but lately i have noticed that my skin tone has lightened a bit and MAC Studio Fix was looking a bit dark on me. So i thought to start searching a foundation for oily skin as my skin turns really oily during summer season. We both did some research and finally settled upon Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin.
Packaging: The Revlon Foundation come in a glass bottle with a black pump. For maintaining the Hygiene the pump is closed/covered with a cap. The pump dispenses a small amount and the flow is very easy to control.
Color: I picked the color Sand Beige which i think is one tone light for me but goes perfectly with PJK’s skin tone. Revlon provides 20 color variants to choose from, very impressive.
Texture: The texture is not runny but it dries quickly, so you have to make sure to spread it fast so as to get the even finish. It settles quickly but i didn’t had any problem, i applied it using Real technique buffing brush. It also contains SPF(15).
Application: As i said above as texture sets very quickly on the skin so you need to quickly work on the foundation. The ideal way of application is using BRUSH, i used Real Technique BUFFING BRUSH.
Coverage: It provides medium coverage, for heavy coverage a concealer is recommended to use with it. See the swatches below:
Longevity: It stayed on me for good 8-9 hours. True to its claim, it does control the oil and i am very impressed with the finish it gives. Oil control and matte finish is what makes it ideal for summers.
- Sun Protection- Contains SPF15.
- 20 Color variants to choose from.
- Nice and sturdy Packaging.
- Application is easy if applied with brush.

My Verdict: I am in LOVE with it !! very ideal foundation for summer season. SPF15, oil control and matte finish, all three things in one foundation. Totally Recommend it.
Rating: 4.5/5. Half mark deducted for its tendency to settle quickly.
