This jar is absolutely huge and bulky! There is only 0.8 fluid ounces of actual product.
See what I'm talking about? Just look at how much extra packaging there is! UGH. It's so difficult to store. I can't stand bulky packages. It's unnecessary!
I bought the lightest shade that this range offers: Ivory. I figured that it would match, since I'm Ivory in the liquid version of Revlon Colorstay foundation.
The sticker peels off on the back. Which I don't like, because I might misplace it if I want to refer back to it. The ingredients are also on the back of this sticker, but the other half is on the jar. It's annoying for people who like to keep track of what they're using.
It's always nice, to me, when products have their ingredient list on them. Just in case of an emergency. You never know what you could be allergic to, or when you're going to have a reaction. That's why I like having the labels on my products. (I know it sounds a little OCD, but, it's a good thing).
- Wears up to 24 hours.
- Talc Free & Paraben Free
- Bouncy, whipped formula that feels ultra light and silky smooth
Here is the fist half of the ingredient list..
and here is the second half. It bugs me how it's not all on the same label. Who designed this evil peel off sticker?! Does that bother anybody else out there, or am I just crazy?
This is what you see as soon as you screw off the lid. It's just a protective piece of plastic. However, I prefer products that have seals, because that way, I'm certain that nobody has opened it. I like knowing my products are untouched, clean, and brand new.
After I removed the seal, this is what the foundation itself looks like in the jar. The texture DOES NOT feel whipped at all. It feels more like melted ice cream. (Weird comparison, but it really does). It only felt soft and silky once I blended it out onto my face, but for me, it felt heavy. Not "ultra light" as it claims. Oh yeah, and it had a very strong scent. It reminded me of how mascara smells.
I found that using a brush with this foundation is pointless, because the brushes just soak up the product and waste it. The foundation is so thick that it gunked up the brush and created lines, so I just blended with a damp sponge. I was pleased that the shade was a perfect match for my skin, but that was all I liked about this foundation.
Here is what the completed face looks like using the Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation, without powder or primer. I had about 9 hours of wear before I needed to touch up. (So, this doesn't last 24 hours). I have combo skin: an oily t-zone and dry to normal everywhere else. I was pleased with the coverage, however it did feel like I was wearing heavy makeup.
- Ivory is a perfect match for my skin
- full coverage
- $13 (with tax) for only 0.8 fluid ounces of product
- bulky packaging
- difficult to blend
- has a strong smell
- has a "heavy" feeling on the skin
- wear isn't 24 hours
- texture isn't "whipped or bouncy" as claimed
I didn't like this foundation, it doesn't live up to the claims, and it's just not worth the money. I would rather buy the liquid Revlon Colorstay for $10 that has 1 fluid ounce of product. I also felt that this foundation took me longer to blend than any other foundation I've tried. Once I had it on, I felt like I was wearing a mask! I mean, it does the job, b
I wouldn't recommend this, and I'm definitely not repurchasing it!
