Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup

I was surprised by the greatness of this new foundation. My regular foundation is Laura Mercier's Silk Creme Foundation in bamboo beige (left) it costs $43 per 1.18 fl oz. = $36/oz. The Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup in 320 warm golden (right) is $13.99 per 0.8 fl oz. = $17/oz.  I switch on and off because this one does tend to clog my pores. Bamboo beige is lighter since I got it in the winter.

Revlon's texture is like a cream-gel, it's kind of bouncy to the touch. I tried applying it with my Real Technique's expert face brush but preferred my fingers. The medium coverage, matte finish lasts all day and due to a special "time release formula" it actually looks better over time. I recommend exfoliating then moisturizing well beforehand because dry patches are emphasized. I tested this during the summer and it held up incredibly well.

The Revlon website says there are 16 shades but it only lists 12 of them. Same thing on Ulta. Weird.

If you're looking for a long wearing, affordable foundation I recommend this one. It may or may not clog your pores, but maybe I need to try a different removal process.  I'm not a huge fan of the large glass jar it comes in, it's cumbersome. Lots of drugstores and websites have deals like buy one, get one half off.  I did it and got a Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain that I will review later.

face candy grade: A+
