My experience using this Revlon Colorstay 2-in-1 Compact Makeup & Concealer
Before I even start writing about this, Let me confess – I have never been a fan of creme based foundations. I like cream concealers, But not foundations. Most of the creme compact foundation sets to a powder finish. I feel it to be very heavy and almost feels like I have a mask on my face.. In short – I am not into cream compacts and I prefer actual liquid cream foundations.
Packaging – I found it pretty interesting as it comes as 2-in-1. A foundation shade along with a concealer shade that is one shade lighter. All of this in a big compact. As you can see from the picture, When you open it and you’ll find the concealer that is located on a tray over the foundation. Now that tray flips up and reveals the foundation completely. And finally beneath the foundation you’ll find a generously sized well which holds a teardrop shaped sponge for applying and blending the foundation and a mirror
I have combination skin (oily t-zone area and dry/normal everywhere else) and also have sensitive skin. I received the whole collection for reviews. All of my cousins and family took out most of them..I couldn’t hide it from them.. hahhhahhaa.
Out of the ones, The best shade that suits medium skintones with yellow undertones are 330- Natural Tan and 310 Warm Golden. In one glance, you will think all of the shades are way too dark- But, it’s not true. Once you swatch the product, the real color shows off. Hopefully you can see in the pictures the outer layer when swatched reveals the true color of the foundation.
Formula, Pigmentation – Before applying this product make sure you moisturise and prime your face well. This foundation is best suited for normal & combination skin types. People with dry skin might not like this. This foundation-concealer duo comes with a sponge. I don’t use it as I prefer to use my brush for applying this. I love the formula of the foundation and the concealer. They are very creamy, easy to blend and apply and they don’t make your face look oily or greasy. It feels light-weight on face. The concealer shade is tad lighter and it does a good job in brightening the under eye area. I apply a separate corrector prior to using this on my under eye area. I am not a fan of this concealer. I would say, it’s best to do spot concealing on face. For under eyes I prefer my MAC studio finish concealer.
Longevity – The coverage is medium and is buildable for a high coverage. I set the foundation using Ben Nye translucent powder. The foundation does cling to dry patches despite its satin matte finish. Priming and moisturising the facial area well is the key to applying this evenly. For about 6 hours, Foundation stayed after which my t-zone area started getting oily and I had to touch up. Foundation started clinging onto dry areas around my nose and it started to fade after about 7 hours of wear.
Here are the swatches!
In this FOTD below. The right side shows the foundation freshly applied. and the left side photo is taken after 6-7 hours of wear. you can maximise this picture to see how the foundation started to fade and clinging onto the dry patches on my facial area.
Overall, I think this foundation-concelaer duo is best for summer months when your skin is not very dry. It’s definitely not suited for winter months.. If you have oily skin- You will like this. Packaging is chunky yet, good for travel. The formula applies easily and can be blended effortlessly, and provides a satin-matte natural finish. The coverage is medium-high. It feels light-weight on face. The formula of the concealer is thicker than the foundation, It doesn’t work great for dark circles around the eyes, It works for spot concealing on face. Dry skin people- stay away from this. I got a wear time of about 6 hours after which it started to settle and flake onto the dry areas of my face and my t-zone turned oily as well.
Tips to keep in mind if you are buying this compact – The actual shade of the product is actually quite a bit lighter than how it looks in the compact as you can see from pictures….Please keep this in mind while buying this online etc.
