Last week while browsing around the cosmetic aisles in Target, I came across the new Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation. I have been debating for quite sometime on whether or not this product was worth the money. I cracked and decided to pay the $11.49 (sale price) and try it out. The foundation claims to be buildable to full coverage with a matte finish and 24-hour wear. The color I purchased is in 370 Natural Tan which I feel is the closest to M.A.C NC42. To give you guys my honest review of the product I wore it every day for about 5 days straight.
Texture & Finish
At first glance, the glass packaging of this foundation is sleek and luxurious. The consistency of this foundation is not exactly whipped like it says. I feel that it has more of a pudding like consistency. It is definitely thicker than a liquid, but not a creme. The finish of the foundation leaves more of a satin finish than a matte. It looks natural and just gives your face a flawless look.
Because of the consistency, I found it difficult to find the best way to apply this foundation. I tried a kabuki brush, flat foundation brush and my fingers. After multiple attempts, I found that the best way to apply it was with my fingers. By doing this I was able to distribute the foundation evenly on my skin.
I don’t really agree that it would last 24 hours (I mean who would actually want to have make-up on for that long). On average, I got about 10-12 hours of wear and that is without any touch-ups throughout the day.
After about 3 days of wearing this foundation I started breaking out. I have acne-prone skin, but I have never had a reaction like this towards a foundation. So any one with acne-prone skin beware. All in all, I did like how this foundation looked prior to my breakout and would recommend it to people with non-sensitive skin.
