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.

Pros:

  1. Sun Protection- Contains SPF15.
  2. 20 Color variants to choose from.
  3. Nice and sturdy Packaging.
  4. Application is easy if applied with brush.
  5. Controls the Oil.
  6. It doesn’t look Cakey.
  7. Long Lasting.
  8. Good Coverage.
  9. Shelf life of 3 years

Cons:

  1. Settles very quickly so blending with hands can be an issue. However with Brush it applies smoothly.
  2. Glass Packaging-prone to breakage.

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.
