The only youtuber I can trust is Judy. It is just because she has the skin type like me which is oily. Also I like the way she is reviewing it! It is so clear and so helpful. I like her lah! I trust in her taste too and I should try lots of things she recommended! If...I'm rich later.. :')

Back to the foundation, the most important thing is the foundation is not quite pricey! It is still expensive for student's pocket but it is quite cheap actually! Cheap but not cheapy.. hahaha... get it..
Okay lah not funny but what I mean is that product is not low quality! It is great for me and I'm quite impressed with it.
The packaging is so fabulous in my opinion. It made from a glass and heavy actually. Many people said that the worst thing about this foundation is that there is no pump in it so it is quite hard to squeeze it out. But in my opinion although actually it is a bit of difficult, I like it better with no pump. Idk but I just feel that is the 'real' foundation's packaging should be.. Wait, I'm not saying that the foundation without pump is not real xD but you get what i mean lah! YOU SHOULD GET IT :) hahaha kidding! I mean it is just like the classic foundation although i know if there is a pump it would be very helpful.
♥ This product claims:
- Wears up to 24 hours
- Flawless look, lightweight feel
- SPF 15
The other thing I like about this foundation is actually it is not a sticky foundation. When you first applied it, it is just like water (well not 100% water) but you know, it is just quite light.. It blends so so easily! You just need to apply a little bit of it and spread it out all over your face. The magic thing is although you only squeeze it a little, it can fit whole your face! I'm quite impressed because it is so economical :D haha ignore what I'm saying,
But actually you need a little bit more to cover all your blemishes and imperfections. But in my case, the foundation is not good enough/not enough to cover my blemishes and imperfections, so I need to apply concealer too.
I tried the foundation today and wear it to college. You know, it has been a really difficult and bad weather for any foundation actually. I was in the sun and sweat a lot, it was windy, storms, tunder , and raining.. Okay kidding, i was in the sun and it was super super hot and I thought my foundation died because of it.
But I was quite shocked that the foundation is still on and i'm not oily at all! Yes, I do sweat a lot but actually it did not get me any oil at all! I'm very impressed with this foundation and freaking love it. I'm gonna wear it every single day! Well, not every single day, but I will wear it A LOT :D
I was wearing it 10 hours and it does disappear a little but it mostly still on! Also the best thing is i'm still not oily! Well, I do get oily but it is just a little, like super super little and I can call it not oily lah!
Besides of that, speaking of the shades that I choose, I'm using it in the shade 110 Ivory.
I think there are 4 shades for this foundation if I'm not mistaken.
Speaking of the shades, I think I choose the wrong shade because it is just too white for me. When I first applied, it blends well but in the end it will become too white for me. I will give the picture of myself so we can see what skin type I am.
In here, I'm not using any foundation, i'm just using compact powder and a little bit of blush on. As you can see, I have light skin type but Ivory is just too white for me. I think next time I will choose Natural Beige because it is more natural than Ivory.
So, I think for my foundation, I will still using it but I will use it just a little bit. For people out there, if you happen to purchase a foundation which is too white/too bright for you, rather than throw it away, just take a little bit of it and if still don't cover well, use your concealer.
The concealer will cover your blemishes and your foundation will brighten up your skin. If your foundation is too bright for you then I'm sure if you use it a little, it will still brighten up your skin well.
♥ To sum up, here's my review ♥
- Very lightweight, not heavy at all. You will not get the cakey feeling or look
- Blends so easily and beautiful
- Matte finishing as they claim to be
- Not much coverage
- Not really stay on 24 hours
- Showing dry patches (if you have combination skin type)
Also, I noticed that I had Combination skin which I get oily in my T-Zone and chin area but really dry in my cheek and around nose. I was a bit confused whether I need to use the Combination/Oily skin or the Normal/Dry skin.
So, what I did is to mix my primer with the foundation. I'm using Make Over Hydration Serum as my primer and mix it with Revlon Colorstay Foundation and it is BAM~
It blends so smooth and not dry me out at all. Also it makes it longer to use.
Well, this is just my thoughts of the Revlon Colorstay Foundation. This is not an ads or anything. I'm just a consumer, well a 'happy' costumer who is quite impressed with their foundation.
For the dry skin people out there, no need to worry because they also have the foundation for the dry skin type! So, that's all for the review and I can say that this foundation is great! :)
Ps: What is good for me may not be good for you. So, I'm just sharing my opinion and how the foundation reacts on my skin. Some people may not have the same skin type as me because my friend also bought this foundation and have oily skin but this foundation is just not strong enough to cover their oily skin.
Have a good day everyone, cheers!
