Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup Foundation - Review

 

Review of Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup Foundation



So today I’ll be reviewing my favourite drugstore foundation. Revlon Colorstay Whipped Crème Foundation has been there for a while. I’ve been wearing this daily since last 4 months. I have oily skin and having to find a good drugstore branded foundation has always been a difficult task for me. So when I bought it, I was a little apprehensive but it surprised me and surpassed all my expectations.
 

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup Foundation - Review



It comes in a thick glass tub kinda jar with black screw cap. The jar in itself is quite heavy. Inside there is a soft plastic cover provided to prevent spillage of the crème. Inspite of these the packaging gets messy. The texture of the foundation is of a thick crème, yet it’s not heavy on the skin. It gives a velvety finish. A little goes a long way.
The foundation gives a fairly good coverage, though it doesn’t conceal spots and pigmentations totally. I don’t need to apply too much powder after this as it makes my skin look too matte. Just a little powder on my T zone and I am done. It has an amazing wear time. I have worn this for good 12 hours and it was still there without much oxidisation. The foundation needs to blend quickly as it tends to set. Once the foundation sets I’ve never faced any problem of cakeyness. It looks like second skin.






I generally use this over my sunscreen or serum. But dry skinned women will need a moisturiser underneath. It contains spf but still photographs well.  I generally use my fingers to apply this. But it also gives a beautiful finish when applied with wet sponge.


I am using the lightest shade that is Natural Ochre which will suit every fair skinned women with warm undertones.

Price of Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation

It costs INR 800/-

Oohhsss and Aahhss:
  1. Coverage
  2. Easily blendable
  3. Velvety finish which looks like natural skin
  4. Excellent wear time
  5. Decent coverage
  6. Never broke me out.

Ouches:
Heavy packaging and hence not travel friendly.

Repurchase:
Yes yes yes.

Recommendation:
It has all aspects of being a good daily wear foundation and moreover a this jar is bound to last you quite some months. It suits oily skinned women pretty well. Dry skinned beauties may want to give it a skip.

Ratings: 
9/10 for oily skin

    1. Debamitra this foundation has a bit a spf due to which it might look ashy on close up pics and to add to it I had taken this pic right after my beach holiday resulting in a bad tan.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
