Revlon ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup




On a whim (isn't that always the case?) I decided to pick up the Revlon ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup on a recent trip down the drugstore aisle. I've given it a fair try out and have a mixed opinion to report.

Let's start with the shade. I chose "250 Medium Beige" after hanging out far too long in the aisle. The packaging makes it damn near impossible to tell what shade to get. I thought for sure I'd be on the lighter end of the spectrum but I kept swatching higher and higher until I landed on "250". The range is great for lighter skin tones who have a hard time finding lighter shades.

The consistency is definitely whipped. It's light to the touch and applies really easily to the skin. I'd say this has a fairly medium coverage but definitely can be sheered out or built up. The finish is  satin to matte. 

Now on to my qualms. I loved this product at first. The application was nice, the coverage what I wanted, and the packaging super cute. The first application I used a beauty blender and found that my skin was irritated and dry a few hours after putting on my makeup. It got to the point that by the late afternoon I had to take my makeup off because my skin felt so irritated. The next day I opted for a finger application to see if the irritation was caused by the blender rather than the foundation. Although not as irritated, my skin still felt raw and uncomfortable enough that I had to take my makeup off earlier than intended again.

I have fairly normal to dry skin so maybe this foundation just heightened the dryness aspect. I feel as if this foundation would be fantastic for oily skinned gals, but with winter right around the corner I need to start getting as much moisture to my skin as I can get. Everything about this foundation I like, but I rather not have my face flake off or become a cracked desert.

If you've tried this foundation definitely let me know. I had such high hopes for it and will give it another go in the summer when my skin isn't so dry. Until then I'm steering clear and heading to more moisture.

  1. I've looked at this product multiple times because the packaging is adorable - interesting that it was so irritating! Do you normally have sensitive skin?

    1. Definitely not! It was such a surprise for my skin to be so angry with it

  2. This looks adorable, and sounds like it should be really good so it's such a shame it irritated your skin so much! I don't have dry skin so I'd probably be okay with it, but I have like five foundations I need to finish!
