Revlon is an old favourite of mine when it comes to foundations. As someone with super oily and not the nicest skin in the world, I feel like their foundations really work well with me. <
I was so excited to hear of their Revlon Colorstay 2 in 1 Compact Makeup and Concealer*, so of course I had to try it out and share my thoughts.

Personally, I feel like this range, or these particular 9 shades aren’t really suited for my olive skin, especially during summer. If you’re not olive though, I think there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll find an amazing match! Just keep in mind that the shades of this foundation are definitely darker in the pan. If you can, I’d suggest going in store and having a play with swatches. The closest shade to me is probably 220, which will be good during winter.
Although I currently don’t have a match, I still put the foundation to the test. I applied it using the little sponge provided and I actually really like the sponge! It’s really handy and I love that it isn’t a little puff because they’re really hard to keep hygienic. The puff and the mirror inside makes this product extremely handy for you travellers out there or people who love to touch up during the day.
The formula of both the foundation and concealer is incredibly smooth. The foundation itself is probably a teeny bit smoother than the concealer, but they’re very close.
I’d say that this provides me with a medium coverage. In terms of how it feels, it’s not completely weightless, but it isn’t heavy either. Just feels like hey there’s something there, but by no means is it intrusive.
Longevity wise, I trialled this for 6 hours and it looked pretty good. I am oily so there was some shine and I did have to blot, but I think for a compact foundation, it’s pretty good and you can always touch up again.
What do you think of this product?
Do you personally like to touch up your makeup during the day?
Or, do you just apply once and go for it?
