I never thought I would give a raving review to a Drugstore foundation after using my Nars Sheer Glow for almost 3 years but, here I am...
I recently purchased Revlon's Colorstay Whipped foundation in #24, Sand Beige. I am NC 20, normal to dry skin for reference.
My first impressions after opening the container right off the bat I could see it is was a very thick consistency, so that made me a little nervous to put it on my face. While I enjoy medium coverage foundations, as everyone else...I don't like to feel like I am wearing a ton of makeup.
Luckily, the texture of this foundation is really nice. It blends really easily when applied with the fingers making it pretty nice to work with. As I work it into my skin, I noticed it feels really silky and glides on really well. To me, this is a whipped creme. A lot of people are referring to it as a mousse but it by no means as that airy texture a mouse has.
Application I heard was the trickiest part of this foundation. I have only applied this foundation with my fingers and I find that that method works really well. I simply dot it onto the areas on my face where I would like coverage and then rub it in. I let the first layer dry and then add a slightly thinner layer to areas where I have some spot scarring. To make sure it is all blended I use a flat top brush to ensure it looks even and smooth.
Colorstay whipped offers really great coverage and as I said before, you can totally layer it without it looking cakey or like you are wearing a mask of foundation.
This foundation provides great longevity as well. In fact, I think it looks better throughout the day. I do set it with a powder to help it stay in place. With this foundation I find I am not touching up with powder throughout the day which is amazing.
Considering what I have paid in the past for foundation, I find the price very affordable product. The first drugstore I found it in priced it at 14.99. I found it for cheaper at Target for 11.99.
I know many find the packaging to be a con, which if you are really bothered by unhygienic jars I can completely understand. However, I love the glass container it comes in. It reminds me of Chanel's cream bronzer.
Here is the finished product on my face
This has quickly become my new favorite foundation and I highly recommend it to anyone on the hunt for a long lasting, med-full coverage foundation.
