Hello My Beautiful Ladies!!!
Foundation has become the necessity of our everyday makeup routine so I will review Revlon Colorstay Foundation which is easily available on drugstores.
Since finding a right foundation has become a very tedious task especially for the people with oily skin so my oily and acne prone skin have forced me to try a lot of foundations. I prefer checking the shades at the counter and ordering it online for better discounts and rewards. I got it from www.amazon.co.in
My Experience with Revlon Colorstay Foundation (Combination/Oily Skin)
Taking care of an oily and acne prone skin takes a lot of effort and time. I usually suffer from unexpected breakouts which lead to leaving acne scars or marks on my face. Achieving a flawless skin without any makeup is like a dream to me.
To hide my flaws I had been looking for a good drugstore daily foundation which is not too highly priced. Having the problem of breakouts I look for foundations with Medium to Full Coverage.
It comes in a glass bottle with a hard plastic cap mentioning 24hrs with a Net Vol of 30ml. It has a pump on top of the bottle to pump out the product as required.

How to Use
Pump out a small amount of the product on your finger tip and dot it on your face. Use a beauty blender or your fingers to spread the product evenly on the area. Don’t forget to cover your neck and ears. I will recommend to use less product in beginning and then layer it out wherever required to gain maximum coverage.
My Rating on purchasing this product
Revlon Colorstay is one of the most popular drugstore foundations for Combination/Oily Skin available in India. The other variant of this foundation that is available for Normal/Dry Skin.
My experience with this foundation is with mixed reviews. I fall in the color shade of warm golden. The product stays for nearly 8-9 hours but oil absorption power is only up to 4-6 hours. The consistency of the product is quite thick for a liquid foundation. It blends very well with beauty blender but it do feel little heavy on face i.e. it is not weightless foundation. I am not too satisfied with coverage during my breakout days. It may be full coverage for clear skin but surely not for acne and scars. The most annoying thing is it makes me look one shade darker after 4-5 hours of application. So it hasn’t worked too well on my skin.
Those with clear skin can definitely go for this product, if staying power is not an issue with you.
For too Oily, Acne or Scar prone skin type I will recommend can try once, if price is not your concern.
