Foundation Friday - Revlon ColorStay Foundation Reviews

Hi guys ! Hope you had a great week ! 

Last year I was lucky enough to get some Revlon ColorStay foundations to try out, and today I'm sharing my thoughts on these foundations. 

Revlon ColorStay Stay Natural Foundation -
This foundation is PERFECT for someone that wants their foundation to last -but doesn't want a heavy matte finish. This foundation has a very natural look - perfect for just evening out the skin tone and won't let you feel like you are wearing a foundation mask. This foundation has a SPF15

Revlon ColorStay Stay Active Make-Up with Softflex - 
This is a great light to medium coverage foundation and the best part - this is sweat proof yet breathable - so perfect for going to the gym or even for a busy day running errands. I love that this is REALLY long lasting, especially when your active and let's be real after a busy day you still want to look great.  This foundation has an SPF25 . 

Revlon ColorStay for Combination / Oily Skin
This is a fantastic formula for oily skin , as this will help you control any shine. This is a medium to full coverage foundation , and to be honest - My favourite one in the range. I love how this makes my skin look flawless (even on days when my skin was FAR from flawless. )
 ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation -
This has a light and bouncy formula . This formula is sweat, heat & humidity resistant - and it doesn't rub off. This is another medium to full foundation . This is one of the formula's that looks better as the day goes by ... I don't know what magic unicorn technology they use, but this really looks better as the day goes on. This foundation has an SPF 20. 

ColorStay Two Way Powder Foundation -
This is a powder formula that you can use wet or dry . Personally .. I love to use it dry or over a BB cream for a little extra coverage. This foundation will give you a medium coverage . I love how this is SUPER easy to pack or throw into your handbag for touch ups before a night out. 

So my overall thoughts :
I love the Colorstay range. I apply my make-up around 05h00 in the morning and by 20h00 at  night when I remove my make-up it still looks the same as it looked when I applied it that morning. And being on the go , without too much time for a touch up . (Because lets me real, most days are a little crazy that you don't even have time to look in the mirror during the day. )

I love all of the formula's, but my 2 favourites are hands down the ColorStay for Combination/Oily Skin & The Whipped Creme Foundation .
