Beauty | Revlon Colorstay Foundation

Anybody who knows me, knows I'm a stickler for trying new foundations. It was only at the beginning of this year when I ventured out to try the Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum (wild I know) prior to that I  forever used the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid, of which I replaced and replaced for the previous eight years or so... Like I said, I'm so wild!

After venturing out at trying something new earlier on in the year, I've made it my mission to try as many new foundations as possible & the next one on my list (as the title suggests) is the Revlon Colorstay foundation for dry/normal skin.

I chose this foundation after sampling a small amount & enjoying the longevity of the product, especially after a rather stressful day at work... Usually I'd come home looking like a dogs dinner, but the foundation stayed really well. I haven't quite tested it for a full 24 hours (who actually does that?) but I can only assume that it does a brilliant job.
The formula is a lot more liquid than what I've used before, which did worry me to begin with, but it actually blends really well & a little definitely goes a long way with this product. I don't wear makeup everyday (a gals skin's gotta breathe right) but I can definitely see this little glass bottle lasting a long time. It's definitely a buildable foundation, some days I can go out with one coat if I'm preferring more of a natural makeup look however I can just as easily pop another if not two coats on if I'm wanting a more 'photoshopped' look.
The finish is quite a satin/dewy look which for me is absolutely perfect right now. I have quite dry skin especially on my cheeks and under the eyes so this product gives my skin a little bit of a lift and more of a healthy look.
I picked up the colorstay foundation in the shade Ivory and it suits my skin tone really well. I found Revlons' shade range to quite substantial, however they only really cater for lighter skin tones which is a little disappointing, I would have thought in this day an age cosmetic companys would cater for everybody.

Have you tried Revlons' Colorstay foundation before? I'm looking at trying a foundation a little more high end next time. Have you got any recommendations? Something with a dewy finish would be ideal.

Thank you so much for reading. Lots of love | Claire.x
