Why did I consider getting the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation?
I tried to resist… I tried to remember my long list of failures with Revlon foundations in the past, and YET I bought it. LOL.. Even though I haven’t had any luck in the past with them I thought I would give Revlon another try. Let’s see if this one is the one to break the bad streak…
Where can you get them?
I got the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation online at Ulta.com.
What did I find in the package?
It comes in a heavy glass jar with a screw up lid which translates to “not the best hygienic situation” since you have to either use your hands to scoop the product out or dip your brush inside the jar. I actually like how lux the jar feels and looks BUT I dislike the dip-your-fingers on it idea.
Time to try it. What did it do for me?
The first thing I thought about when I read the name of this Revlon foundation was whipped cream! and expected the consistency to be as such. Interestingly enough, the consistency is creamier but not completely though. It’s like a mix between a cream and a liquid.
It’s very easy to buff into the skin and to apply it – you can use a brush, a sponge or you good ol’ fingers. Revlon claims this foundation will last for 24 hours.. Whaaaat? I don’t want to wear my foundation for more than 12 hours, who is out there wearing any makeup for 24 hours!?!
The formula is talc-free and paraben-free and it hasn’t broken me up as of right now. The color I’m using is 320 Warm Golden and it matches my NC40 skin tone fairly well. I find it’s a medium coverage foundation even though you can build it up but I don’t think it ever gets to full coverage. The finish is matte which I particularly don’t love since my skin is so dry and I like my foundations to look dewy. It seems like my experience repeats itself again with this foundation: It accentuates my dry spots and I don’t like how it looks sitting on my dry skin.
I do want to let you know that in the future, when I do wear this foundation I will mix it with Benefit’s Girl Meet Pearl , Giorgio Armani’s Fluid Sheer #2 or Origins VitaZing because I LOVE the dewy finish they provide to my face when mixed with foundation. This is something you don’t have to do but I do it because I like it :-)

What is my Verdict?
I wish I could tell you I found the Revlon foundation that works for my dry skin but no, I didn’t. The experience that I have had with it so far is that it’s better than other previous Revlon foundations BUT still not good enough for my dry skin. For my personal use, I’ll mix it with an illuminator because I like dewy finish foundations and because I think it helps to keep my face plumped up.
Have you tried this foundation and like it? I would love to hear your success story with it. Any favorite Revlon foundation?
