I'm back with another review and this time it's for the new Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation. I'd heard quite a bit about this foundation from other bloggers and predominantly Youtube and finally it's out in Australia! We are a little slow.. but better now than never is what they say right?
I bought mine in Big W on the way back to my car at QV so it wasn't on sale or anything but i spilled the cash anyway and for $33.00 it's hardly cheap. For those interested, MYER is having a one day sale tomorrow and there's going to be 25% off Revlon. (damn!)
You get 23.7ml of product in the jar and actually, speaking of the jar, it is quite heavy! I sure wouldn't want to drop this on the tile or anything because i can just picture it smashing into pieces and foundation flying everywhere. On the other hand, the packaging is quite expensive looking; simple but classy.
When you screw the top off, this is pretty much what you get. The foundation is almost like a watery consistency however it's thicker than liquid, if that makes any sense. I wouldn't go far as to say that it is 'whipped' because when i think of whipped, i think of mousse and this is nothing like that. It's more of a creme which.. is what it does say on the jar. So let's just go with whipped creme even though i don't particularly like the word whipped in there.
You don't get very much product and i would presume it's is quick to use up as it doesnt really go by the concept of "a little goes a long way". Another thing is that I find it difficult to get the product out because i dont like sticking my brush or fingers in there but it has to be done which is a downside.
I apply the foundation by scooping some out and placing it on the back of my hand and then using the Real Techniques stippling brush, just stipple it all over my face.
I would say the coverage is medium and possibly buildable to full. Upon applying it, it really accentuates all my lines, pores and dry patches but i let it settle for about 5-10 minutes and suddenly my faces appears completely flawless and matte. I don't usually like matte foundations but this just makes my skin appear so healthy and "HD". I've worn this foundation out all day today and i would say it's been about 8 hours and with no touch ups my skin still looks perfect. Even my bronzer and blush have stayed put and I could just go out again all night and wouldnt feel the need to do touch ups to my face make up. It really is amazing.
Revlon claims this foundation to last 24 hours but really.. who would wear it for that long and im curious to know if they actually tested that, arent you?
All in all, I'm really enjoying this foundation, my skin feels and looks silky smooth and I definitely don't regret it at all, looks like i'll be adding this as my go-to foundation!
