  • Problem was, Revlon hadn't come out with their own version, at least not in the ColorStay line
  • Even though I'm in my thirties, I still suffer from breakouts far more often than I care to admit, and their liquid foundation has been the only one that covers up the blemishes sufficiently enough, and is heavy enough that I know it's covering without looking built-up on my skin half-way through the day
  • Sure enough, I found the perfect shade in the Fair color, which is the same color I use in the liquid foundation
  • First off, I have very all-over oily skin, and I liked this product because it has talc in it which has a sort of drying effect, which I can definitely stand to use on my face
  • Though it didn't work the way I had originally intended when I bought it, it's still been an excellent addition to my make-up bag, and I've replaced my other ColorStay pressed powder for this mineral version

      I have used Revlon ColorStay liquid foundation for the past ten years (or longer). Yes, I switch it out every other month and try new products pretty regularly, but I always go back to my trusted Revlon product line. Then the whole concept of mineral foundations became a huge deal and I’d heard so much about how much better for your skin a mineral foundation was. Problem was, Revlon hadn’t come out with their own version, at least not in the ColorStay line. So, I tried a few others, and really didn’t care for them that much because I need more coverage than most other foundations provide. Even though I’m in my thirties, I still suffer from breakouts far more often than I care to admit, and their liquid foundation has been the only one that covers up the blemishes sufficiently enough, and is heavy enough that I know it’s covering without looking built-up on my skin half-way through the day. But then, alas, Revlon finally came out with the ColorStay Mineral Powder Foundation, and they had a huge range of colors to

      select from, which I’ve come to expect from Revlon products.

      Sure enough, I found the perfect shade in the Fair color, which is the same color I use in the liquid foundation. I could actually stand to go to a beige or one shade darker than a fair, in their liquid, but the powder looked darker than I was expecting, so I settled on the lightest color I could find. I have very pale skin, so this seemed the safest bet. It’s a little pricier than their liquid foundation, at $14 a bottle, and it really didn’t seem like it was going to go a long way. A bottle of the liquid foundation usually lasts me about a month, but I had doubts this powder would last me a couple weeks. I also didn’t know if the powder would provide the kind of coverage that I was used to with the liquid, but since I trusted the product line, I was ready to give it a shot.

      There are some things I liked and disliked about this product. First off, I have very ...


      • all-over oily skin, and I liked this product because it has talc in it which has a sort of drying effect, which I can definitely stand to use on my face. In fact, I prefer for my makeup to suck every last bit of moisture out of my face if that’s what it takes. I could wear this foundation and I wouldn’t need to use my oil blotting sheets nearly as much as with the liquid foundation in order to keep the shine under control.

        However, it’s very messy to use. It has a nice retractable brush that is part of the lid, but it’s way easy to get too much on the brush and then you blow some of it off, and you blow too much and have to re-load and it takes a while to find a technique to get just the right amount of powder on the brush at any given time, and you waste a lot in the process. I found that it didn’t cover nearly as well as I was expecting either.

        With that said, I also found

        that when I used it with the liquid foundation, it worked much better for me than a pressed powder! I certainly can’t use it as a singular foundation, but as a powder to go over a liquid foundation, it worked wonders. The colors were exactly the same and blended well together and I never had an issue with blotchiness of any kind. It didn’t cake on either, like a pressed powder is sometimes prone to do. It didn’t last the 16 hours it claimed to last, and I found I was re-applying it ever four or five hours, but because it’s so light, you don’t feel caked-on by the end of the day. Though it didn’t work the way I had originally intended when I bought it, it’s still been an excellent addition to my make-up bag, and I’ve replaced my other ColorStay pressed powder for this mineral version. Also, don’t be deceived…. mineral powders typically don’t have talc in it, so I think Revlon is just trying to jump on the popularity bandwagon with this product. Still, I really liked it and I’ll use it again.
