Review, Demo & Check-In Wear Test – Revlon Colorstay Foundation For Combo / Oily Skin


Two videos on ONE week?  Wow, I’m on a roll!  I’m trying to get back into uploading one video per week again, so I thought I’d start off with a double-whammy!  Today I’ll be sharing my first video as a Revlon #LoveSquadSA member with you – I’m quite excited about this video because it’s one of those ‘check-in-during-the-day-to-see-how-well-the-foundation-lasts-on-a-hot-day’ type of videos.  In today’s video I review the Revlon Colorstay 24H Makeup Foundation, plus I also show you how the foundation applies (demo) and what type of makeup tool I like to use to give me the best coverage and finish.  After that I check in with you during the day to show you how the foundation is holding up – in this video I do 3 check-ins, and I wear the foundation for more than 10 hours.  It was a hot day when I filmed the video, so the foundation was definitely put to the test!


Here’s what Revlon has to say about their Colorstay Makeup Foundation for Combination / Oily Skin: “All-day flawless matte finish.  Now with a mess-free pump and SPF protection.  Flawless, matte coverage that lasts up to 24 hours. Comfortable, lightweight formula specifically made for combination or oily skin to control oil absorption and shine.  Buildable to full coverage, contains salicylic acid to balance skin over time, oil-free formula, and contains SPF 15.”

As mentioned in the video, there are 2 variants available for the Revlon Colorstay Makeup Foundation – 1 for combination / oily skin (which is the one I review in the video), and 1 for normal / dry skin.  In total, there are 27 longwearing shades available!

You can watch my video by clicking on the image below, it will take you through to the video on YouTube.  Please give the video a ‘thumbs up’ if you enjoyed it, and share on your social media platforms if you think it’s something that might interest your friends or family.

Remember to watch in HD (720p) – all you have to do is click on the gear icon at the bottom right corner of the video screen and choose 720p.


One thing I’d like to mention with regards to this video:

I used the shade ‘Nude’ in the video, I know it looks quite pale when I first apply it to my face but it’s actually a bit darker in real life.  Because I’m using softbox lights and a ring light in my videos now, they do tend to brighten / lighten up certain makeup shades.  I’m also struggling with a lot of redness on my skin at the moment (stress, hormones, etc) – so that’s why the difference is so noticeable when I compare the one half of my face that is bare, to the other half that is covered with 1 layer of foundation on.  As soon as my entire face is covered with the foundation, you’ll see the shade matches my neck perfectly.


I’m currently running a Revlon Colorstay Foundation competition on my Instagram page!  I’m looking for ladies who are also using the Colorstay Foundation (in ANY SHADE) – here are the details:

    I have been using Revlon Colorstay since varsity. I’ve tried a few different foundations but this still remains my fav. Easy to apply , great coverage and lasts!

    • 26 September 2016 / 13:41

      I’ve always heard such great things about this foundation – I’m happy I tested it, because I can see it becoming a fave! A lot of people say it’s very similar to the MAC Studio Fix Fluid, and I can see why… 😀

    • 26 September 2016 / 13:43

      Definitely try to check it out next time you’re at the shops – it really provides amazing coverage and lasts SO well on the skin (even without a primer). 🙂

    Thank you for this video, Luzanne. I love this type of video where you do physical checkins so that we can see for ourselves how well a product wears.

    Looking forward to seeing a makeup tutorial next. 🙂

    • 26 September 2016 / 13:44

      Thank you so much for watching the video, Taylor – I really appreciate it. 😀

      Yup, I’ll be filming a makeup tutorial this week still! x

    I didn’t even notice the choker because your hair and makeup was so good. Lol. Only reading this again now I saw the part about the choker.

    Loved the eye makeup and the coverage of this foundation is amazing.
