Forget heavy full-coverage foundations of the past with this lightweight formula

The product

Let’s be honest, wearing a long-lasting, full-coverage foundation usually comes at the cost of your skin. 

Traditionally heavy, cakey and packed full of ingredients that you can’t pronounce, the experience of fuller coverage is far from pretty. 

But Revlon ColorStay 24 Hour Longwear Makeup Combination/Oily takes longwearing, full-coverage to another level with the help of some familiar skin care ingredients and a super lightweight formula. Vitamin E nourishes and protects skin, while earth-sourced multi-mineral powders control oil production for budge-proof wear that lasts all day.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this innovative longwearing foundation. 

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Revlon ColorStay 24 Hour Longwear Makeup Combination/Oily to a panel of women aged 25 to 39 with combination/oily skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Revlon ColorStay 24 Hour Longwear Makeup Combination/Oily.

It’s lightweight and full-coverage: Review Crew® members really liked that they didn’t have to compromise on coverage  in order to enjoy a lightweight foundation formula. 

The silky, skin-smoothing finish: Reviewers said the foundation helped to smooth their skin, minimising the appearance of imperfections, and leaving their complexion looking silky soft. 

Its lasting power: The biggest takeaway? This stuff really lasts. According to reviewers they usually experience patchiness or oiliness throughout the day with traditional foundation, but this held up (even on those days that never seem to end).

The verdict

“Fantastic - my new drugstore fave. I was a little hesitant because I’m not a fan of drugstore foundations with my combination skin. The colour is flattering even with my pale skin, and it blends so beautifully. I used a brush first and then patted the foundation in with a sponge. The Revlon ColorStay is just a game changer! Glides on beautifully, does not crease and looks amazing on. It’s lightweight but coverage is next level. The best thing about this foundation is that it looks like skin. Not once did it look like I had such a full coverage foundation and it’s just so breathable. I got so many compliments while wearing this.”

“This is a fantastic foundation. I was surprised at the great coverage, the foundation smoothed into my skin so well, very silky and lightweight to the touch, however it gave great medium coverage. After wearing the foundation all day, my oily skin would usually show patchy areas, however this foundation was great at its staying ability. I also found that it controlled the shine I usually see towards the middle of the day. I was still left with quite a matte finish, which is exactly what my skin needs.”

“Super surprised by this foundation, I usually wear a mineral powder foundation as I don’t like the heavy feeling of the liquid foundation however this liquid foundation is made for combination oily skin type and felt quite light after the application with a flawless coverage and helped to control the oily shine I get through the day. It’s great for everyday use with one application or can be applied heavier at night for longer lasting wear. I love that it has an SPF in it which is a bonus!”
