Foundation isn’t really a staple product in my everyday makeup routine. Not because I have perfect clear skin… actually it’s the contrary since I went through the worst breakout ever months ago and I’m still dealing with the after shock which is the pimple marks. But instead of covering them everyday with foundation, I opted to just let my skin breathe to prevent clogged pores that could eventually lead to even more pimples.
The only reason I bought this foundation is because I occasionally have to have that picture perfect skin during events, photo ops, and of course when meeting other bloggers. I wouldn’t want to look undeserving of being called a blogger. LOL!

ColorStayโ„ข Makeup with SoftFlexโ„ข

Specially formulated for combination or oily skin, this oil-free formula helps control shine all day and gives you flawless looking skin. Makeup looks fresh and feels great for up to 24 hours thanks to the lightweight, comfortable feel from the SoftFlex ColorStayโ„ข formula. Medium to full coverage, with SPF 6 protection*.

*Golden, Caramel, Toast, Rich Ginger, Cappuccino, Mahogany, and Mocha do not contain SPF.

I’m really not impressed with packaging. If not for hype on this product, I wouldn’t bother giving it a try simply because the packaging failed to catch my attention. Other than the apparent lack of aesthetic appeal of the packaging, the bottle also has this wide mouth opening tends to pour out more products than what is really needed. The only thing I like about the bottle is that it’s super sturdy. I must’ve dropped it twice or trice already and it didn’t crack even the tiniest bit.

Contrary to the product’s claim, I think it only offers sheer to medium coverage though it is very buildable. I even prefer mixing this with my StemCello EMortal Vitamin C Serum (Read review HERE) to make the coverage lighter (almost like BB Cream) for a more natural look. 
Revlon ColorStay has a wide range of shades (cool to warm undertones) to choose from so I’m pretty sure everyone will find a shade that would fit them. 

I bought this some time during the summer and despite the humid weather, the consistency didn’t change. I didn’t notice any separation.
It doesn’t feel heavy on the face unlike James Cooper Cream Foundation (Read review HERE). It also doesn’t cake when blended properly using the right tools. I use my ELF Flat Top Brush or Real Techniques Buffing Brush for this (Read review HERE)
Lastly, it has a decent staying power. It can last up to 6-8 hours in an air-conditioned room. I always use a primer before applying foundation though.

Don’t be alarmed. This doesn’t look ghastly on me because my face is fairer then my hands. LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Aside from the packaging, the only thing I really hate about this product is the smell. You can already smell its strong chemical reek from inches away. It really irritates me.
Thrift Tip: Go to a Revlon counter and swatch different shades to know what matches your skin type and color the most. Then, buy it online because its cheaper. This one, Revlon ColorStay, is being sold for more than Php 900 in malls. But I got mine from Chedelyn’s Cosmetics for only Php 550. Steal, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰
If you can’t visit a Revlon counter, here’s a quick guide.
